Kelsea Ballerini Inducted Into Grand Ole Opry


Country singer-songwriter Kelsea Ballerini was officially inducted as a member of the Grand Ole Opry on Tuesday in a touching moment with Carrie Underwood.

Before handing the coveted Opry trophy to Ballerini, Underwood thanked the Opry Board for "asking this talented, incredible, smart, sweet, beautiful woman to be a member."

"You have accomplished so much in your career and you will undoubtedly accomplish infinite amounts more in your career and in your life. Awards and number ones and sales and tours and fans, and just all of it," she added.

Accepting the trophy, Ballerini said, "I just want to say that it's so nice and comforting to know that no matter where life takes me and no matter if the radio stops playing me tomorrow and whatever happens, that I can always come here and I can always play country music."

The country pop singer and songwriter said she remembers her Opry debut on February 14, 2015 as a moment that made her "just stop and take a minute and be grateful and look up."
