Brad Celebrates 10 Years As Grand Ole Opry Member

This past weekend CMA Entertainer of the Year Brad Paisley celebrated his 10th anniversary as a Grand Ole Opry member before a sold-out crowd, part of the Oprys All-Star Weekend.After an on-stage presentation by Opry Vice President and General Manager Pete Fisher and Opry member Bill Anderson, Paisley reflected on ten years of Opry membership.This is my favorite place to play, Paisley said. Its the best stage in the world. Youve got the circle right here which means more to us now than ever. I always wanted to be a member here. That was my goal. I think more than anything it was like, if I could just be a member of the Opry, Ill know that Ive made it in the eyes of some really important people. I cant believe its been ten years. Its flown by. Thank you for not kicking me out of the club yet. I appreciate it.Anderson replied, I think youll be around here as long as you want to be and as long as there is a Grand Ole Opry for you to play.
