Scotty McCreery’s Grand Ole Opry Induction Date Announced

We now know when Scotty McCreery will be inducted into the Grand Ole Opry. The 30-year-old will officially become a member on April 20, after being invited by Garth Brooks to join in December.

Fellow North Carolina native Josh Turner will officially induct McCreery as the next Opry member.

“It has been my longtime goal to be worthy of Opry membership,” McCreery says. “I am overjoyed to join this prestigious family that is the heart of country music. To be invited by my hero Garth Brooks and to be inducted by another hero Josh Turner is beyond what I could have ever dreamed.”

After he was invited to become an official member of the Grand Ole Opry, McCreery reflected on how full-circle his life had become.

“I wish I could tell that 10-year-old boy singing ‘The Dance’ on the edge of his bed at 2 in the morning, that one day Garth Brooks would invite him to become a member of the Grand Ole Opry!” McCreery posted on social media. “Still doesn’t feel real. Thank you Grand Ole Opry for the honor of a lifetime. Proud to be a part of the family.”

Being a member of the Grand Ole Opry is something that McCreery says he takes very seriously, vowing to do whatever is asked of him to support the historic organization.

“I’ll do it all,” McCreery told radio station 94-7 WQDR. . “Whatever they’d like me to do. It’s really just an honor to be up there, and be a member. A lot of my heroes are members there, and played that stage. I’ll be there as much as I can, and parade that around the country, and invite folks out … I’ll be there for the rest of my life.”

McCreery just dropped “Love Like This,” an ode to his wife Gabi and son Avery. The song is from his upcoming new album.

“Becoming a father is the greatest thing that’s happened to me,” McCreery said of the inspiration behind the song. “Raising Avery as he grows and watching my wife Gabi be a rock star as his Mom has been the joy of my life these last 15 months. I knew I wanted to write a song about Avery. I even photographed the room number on the hospital door so I could put that into the lyrics.”

McCreery has also released “Can’t Pass the Bar” and Slow Dance” from the record, along with  “Cab In A Solo,” which is currently in the Top 15. He has a few dates left on his Cab In A Solo Tour, which features Anne Wilson as the opening act for all dates. Find all of McCreery’s music and upcoming shows at
