    Rascal Flatts Invited to Become the newest members of Grand Ole Opry

    As you guys can imagine, I'm still freaking out over this. I was listening to the audio, and got chills when Vince Gill came out and started talking.

    In all the years I've been a fan, I don't think I've seen them more humbled & touched, and I was just listening to the audio. They were at a loss for words.

    In a twist of a irony, Tiffany tweeted she was taking Jagger (their three-year-old son) to the Opry to see Joe Don play the Opry for the first time.


    @jennifertoy: Soo proud of @rascalflatts @JoeDonRooney @JayDeMarcus and Gary for becoming the newest members of The Opry!!

    OMG this is so great!

    I said this a month or so ago-- that I hoped Rascal Flatts got inducted to the Opry next as they play there quite often...... YAY!

    I bet Carrie was there tonight as she is a voting member, right? So she must have known in advance what was happening.... and they are all good friends so I bet she went to wish them well.

    Yes, I'm sure Carrie did know.

    I'm sure Carrie is so proud of them & I bet she'll send her well-wishes, maybe via her next blog.

    I bet she wouldn't miss their invitation for the world; they're great friends, and she's a huge fan of their music as well.

    I was just thinking the other day it was time for the Opry to announce a new invite and wondering who it would be and here it is!!! How great for them - I love how everyone is so shocked to tears - it's always a wonderful moment when they are invited . I hope Carrie gets that honor to invite someone.

    Congrats to them. But am I the only one that has seen a drastic downward spiral to their singles? Most of their stuff for the past couple of years has been dreadful.

    Congrats to Rascal Flatts! It's great to see them finally getting this honor after many years of contributing to country music!

    When you take into account that RF and Blake Shelton were inducted after ten years in the industry, Carrie is extremely lucky to have been inducted less than five years into her career. We are very lucky fans that our favorite girl has been so blessed.
