Jamey Johnson is about to become the newest member of the Grand Ole Opry. While performing at the venue Saturday, Opry member Bill Anderson broke the happy news to him.
“Opry management told me to tell you that this is going to be your last guest appearance,” Bill shared, with Jamey joking, “I’ve been kicked out of a whole lot of places in my life.”
Bill then noted, “The next time you appear on this stage you will be the newest member of our Opry cast and family!”
When told he had to accept the nomination Jamey noted, “I accepted it 20 years ago! I really don’t know what to say except the obvious,” adding, “I love country music. I would have never moved here if it wasn’t for that; for the Opry keeping it alive and for the fans. I love you. Thank you.”
