    Underwood to celebrate 5-year Opry anniversary in June

    Carrie Underwood will mark five years as a Grand Ole Opry member next month, closing the June 7 edition of the Nashville-based live radio show with a performance.
    "Throughout the past five years, Carrie Underwood has become both a certified country music superstar and a beloved member of the Opry family," Opry vice president and general manager Pete Fisher said via a press release. "It's been exciting to see Carrie experience career success after success, all the while returning often to the Opry stage to thrill audiences here."
    The American Idol winner joined the Opry May 10, 2008, following an invitation from Randy Travis that March. Fellow Oklahoman Garth Brooks inducted her into the cast, telling her, "You will be rained with awards from the CMA, the ACMs, Grammys, all that stuff — nothing will last as long or be more important than this award right here tonight."
    That night, Underwood thanked the Opry "for having me as part of your family, because it really seems like a great family to be a part of. … It means a lot to me, and I promise I'll do everything I possibly can to make you not regret it."
    While tickets to the show already are available, special ticket packages that include "fan zone" seating and an exclusive five-year anniversary T-shirt will go on sale Monday via the Opry website.
    Two days before her Opry appearance, Nashville's Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum will open its "Carrie Underwood: The Blown Away Tour" exhibition.

    Oh man...I wonder if that means that she won't be doing the show following the OFC party on that Tuesday?

    What? Wonder if Mikes Birthday being 6/5 has anything to do with anything?

    I'm only guessing, but my hunch would say that there's a chance that the OFC party might be Tuesday later in the day-even evening. They might make it part OFC party, part press event to promote the opening of the exhibit the next day. Just a guess. Totally stinks though.

    I actually hope I'm not, lol. I hope that some AMAZING act is announced for Tues night Opry (will have to be good-I don't know much country, lol) so that we can at least use our tickets.

    It's a real bummer for you guys that were going!! I just got a notice from the FC, that members will have special tickets available. So go check that out at the FC.

    I do feel bad for those people who bought tickets, and if it were me, I am sure I would be venting right now too. lol

    But-- I hope everyone knows Carrie didn't do this on purpose. I am sure the Hall of Fame thing and/or Fanclub Party were her priorities, to make everyone happy and give people a special sneak preview of her Hall of Fame exhibit.

    They probably didn't realize everyone went and bought Opry tickets in advance, or mean to mess up people's plans. I guess what I am saying is that Carrie would never do this intentionally. The scheduling must not have worked for Tuesday night Opry.

    But something tells me the Hall of Fame thing is going to be a big deal, and the fanclub party is going to be amazing!

    Isn't 6/5 the night of the CMT Awards? I am hoping Carrie doesn't skip them for Mike's birthday. I bet he would escort her and they can have a party after though. She can perform and leave early.

    She will be in town all week anyway, for the Hall of Fame thing, Opry, CMT Awards, And her LP Field performance on Sunday.... She likely will do the softball game too hopefully. So hopefully she will attend the CMT Awards. She needs to promote See You Again there anyway.

    too bad the guest list is limited and all those not invited who have already made plans to be in Nashville will be left out in the cold.Bottom line it seems the FC has taken a back seat to PR. And during the week that's suppose to be about the fans.

    Mike is also nominated for a impact of sports award at a Christian Award Show earlier that week. That show is in Nashville as well so I would imagine that he would attend and she would accompany him. Several of their Christian friends are nominated as well.
