Fun-loving Chris Janson will achieve a lifelong dream when he’s formally inducted into the Grand Ole Opry on March 20 during a showcase that also includes performance by Charlie Daniels Band, Del McCoury Band, Lorrie Morgan, and Carly Pearce.
Keith Urban surprised Chris with an invitation to join the Opry during the “Buy Me a Boat” singer’s sold-out show at the Ryman Auditorium on Feb. 5. Since making his debut in 2013, Chris has racked up close to 200 Opry performances.
“Playing the Opry never gets old,” Chris told NCD in 2017. “I’m telling you right now, and I hope they hear me, if I’m ever an Opry member, man, you can bet this, dude, I will be the greatest ambassador the Opry has ever had. I love country music.”
