During an appearance on CBS Mornings late last week with hosts Gayle King, Tony Dokoupil and Nate Burleson to promote her new album Lindeville, Ashley McBryde got the surprise of a lifetime from Garth Brooks.
Visibly emotional, Ashley answered Garth’s invite to become the latest member of the Grand Ole Opry with “It would be the great joy and the great honor of my life.”
Ashley added, “There’s Grammys and there’s being a member of the Grand Ole Opry are the two greatest things that can ever happen to you as an entertainer, and I’ve always said I will earn it, and this is a pretty surreal moment.”
The surprises were not finished – Ashley’s mom also appeared after the invite to share in the special moment with her daughter.
Ashley made her debut on the Grand Ole Opry June 16th, 2017 where she sang her autobiographical song “Girl Goin’ Nowhere.”
Watch Ashley talk about her new album Lindeville – which is available now.
