NASHVILLE, TN – Feb. 7, 2019 – Trisha Yearwood will celebrate her 20th Anniversary as a Grand Ole Opry member with an appearance March 12 at the Grand Ole Opry.
Yearwood was inducted into the Opry family on March 13, 1999 by legendary Opry stalwart Porter Wagoner.
“My mother came here on her senior class trip from South Georgia,” said Yearwood. “She wrote in her diary about seeing Hank Snow, Hawkshaw Hawkins, and all those people. When I was inducted as a member of the Opry in 1999, she brought her diary and got Hank Snow to sign it. So it’s not only about me, it’s also about my whole family.”
Other artists already scheduled to appear on the show that night include Rodney Atkins, Trace Adkins, Terri Clark, and the Opry’s newest member, Mark Wills.
