So it was just over a month ago that Kelsea found out she was going to be inducted with this amazing surprise from Little Big Town
And last night was her big moment. She was inducted by Carrie Underwood!!
“This talented, incredible, smart, sweet, beautiful woman…you have accomplished so much in your career and you will undoubtedly accomplish infinite amounts more in your life. This is the heart and soul of country music, the Opry has been and always will be here…you are in it…welcome to the family!”

last night I had the immeasurable honor of being inducted into the @opry as the newest, youngest member of the family. Opry, thank you for believing in me like you do. For embracing and supporting my kind of country music. For knowing I’ll always show up for you. And for always showing up for me. And @carrieunderwood, I really wouldn’t know what it looks like to be a woman in country music without you. Thanks for paving the way and being there for me last night. I’m a forever fan. It’s the kind of night that is really hard to put into words, but my heart is so full. ❤️
“I just want to say that it’s so nice and comforting to know that no matter where life takes me and no matter if the radio stops playing me tomorrow and whatever happens that I can always come here and I can always play country music. I really wouldn’t know what it looks like to be a woman in country music without Carrie Underwood”
