Country Stars React To Oak Ridge Boys Opry Invitation

Last night was another historic night at the Grand Ole Opry. The legendary Oak Ridge Boys were surprised by Little Jimmy Dickens wearing a beard just like member William Lee, who invited the group to be the newest members of the Opry in the middle of their performance last night. While the boys downplayed the moment to let it sink in overnight, the rest of the country music world didn’t let them get away that easily.

Here’s some of the best tweets from last night congratulating the group.

martinamcbride: Congrats to @OakRidgeBoys on being asked to join the Opry. I know you are thrilled and so are we!

blakeshelton: Congrats to the @oakridgeboys for being invited to join the Opry!! About time my friends…

DiamondRioBand: Congrats to our pals @oakridgeboys. Welcome to the @Opry family. Long over due boys

The Oak Ridge Boys are William Lee Golden, Joe Bonsall, Richard Sterban and Duane Allen. They will be officially inducted into the Opry on the August 6th show. Last year Blake Shelton was inducted into the Opry after becoming speechless and almost crying onstage when Trace Adkins surprised him with the invite.
