VIDEO: Carrie Underwood Celebrates FIVE Years! What an Honor!

by Vanessa Ryan

Carrie Underwood has been through many special moments in her career, but none have come close to the honor of being a Grand Ole Opry member.  Her five year anniversary as an Opry member was celebrated this past weekend.

After a special video was shown highlighting the first five years of Carrie's Opry membership she said, “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.”

Watch the video below...

Opry Vice President and General Manager Pete Fisher presented the Opry member with a commemorative print marking the occasion, saying, “You have far surpassed the high expectations we had when we brought you into the family, and we know it is going to continue into the future. You are not only so good for country music, you are so good for the Grand Ole Opry, and you are so good for America. We appreciate all that you do.” 

Congrats to Carrie!  I LOVE her dress by the way.  Soooo pretty!
