Big Opry news for Carrie Underwood! Two things…
First, the six-time Grammy winner performed her seventh Opry sold-out show of the summer this past Saturday, August 10. That is a pretty amazing accomplishment. Congratulations, Carrie!
Second, Underwood is the host of a new Grand Ole Opry radio advertising campaign. The campaign will feature Underwood reflecting on her 5th anniversary as an Opry member and inviting fans to visit Nashville. It will air next week in regional markets as well as on the Opry’s nationally syndicated radio program, America’s Opry Weekend.
During an Opry performance earlier this summer celebrating the big 5th anniversary, an on-stage video reel displayed some of her past Opry moments. The country star was overwhelmed by it all:
It’s so hard to believe it’s been five years, but what an amazing five years it has been. Just watching that video, I was getting a little teary-eyed, thinking about how I felt when all of that was happening. And I still feel that blessed and that honored to be on this stage.
