    If we think of how quick Carrie Underwood was inducted, it shows us how big Carrie's influences in Country Music !

    Me too. I wonder why - was it them or the Opry that this didn't happen sooner. On a side note, George Strait, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill are not Opry members.

    I think it was George decision he was not going to available to perform at GOO. I think asking RF to be members would be smart. They like Carrie are loyal to their responsibilities and think they would perform frequently if they were members.

    I heard Opry membership has a lot to do with how often you play there. I've never heard of Tim, Faith, Shania or George performing there, let alone being invited back.

    Edit: According to the Opry's Wikkipedia page, an artist must play there at least 26 times a year to retain "standing membership." I'm not sure how accurate this is though.

    I also think RF would be loyal performers at the Opry if they were invited to be members. To my knowledge, they've played there everytime they've been asked.

    They mentioned in an interview awhile back that now that they've been around ten years they have a lot more control over their schedules and one of the things they were excited about was being able to accept invitations to play at the Opry more often.

    I can't understand why there aren't more artists like Carrie deliberately coming back to perform at the Grand Ole' Opry.
    I mean if it were me, I'd be there every chance I've got. it's country's OLDEST and most FAMOUS stages! I would so be lovin' on it.

    26 times a year is a lot. With the busy touring schedules a lot of artists have, they simply may not be able to be there that many times.
