According to a report by the Rolling Stone, country musician Chris Janson is set to become a member of the Grand Ole Opry. Janson was invited to receive the prestigious honor by Keith Urban, who joined him onstage at the Ryman Auditorium earlier this week.
Urban and Janson performed the John Michael Montgomery song “Sold (The Grundy County Auction Incident)” and when it was over Urban gave Janson quite the surprise.
“I know the feeling of the night I got invited, it’s an incredible feeling,” Urban said. “And I think it’s about time you feel that way too, Chris.” An excited Janson couldn’t help but jump up and down and shed a few tears. As for his answer? All he could say was, “holy sh*t.”
He later tweeted, “I am so grateful. I am so humbled. I will likely never sleep another day in my life. This is life changing.”
Janson is expected to officially become a member of the Grand Ole Opry this spring.
