Broken Bow Records recording artist Dustin Lynch fulfilled a lifelong dream this past Friday night as he became the latest rising star to step into the Grand Ole Opry’s hallowed circle.
Opry legend John Conlee welcomed Lynch to the stage of the world-famous Grand Ole Opry, The Show That Made Country Music Famous, on a bill that also included Opry members Mel Tillis, Little Jimmy Dickens, Jimmy C. Newman and Montgomery Gentry as well as Rhonda Vincent and Gloriana.
Hailing from nearby Tullahoma, TN, Lynch grew up listening to and visiting the Grand Ole Opry and dreaming of one day earning the honor of gracing its stage. Last Friday after a tumultuous day of strong storms across the South, Lynch arrived for rehearsal to find a rainbow flowing into the roof of the Grand Ole Opry House – a sign from Mother Nature that his dream was coming true.
Performing his hit single, “Cowboys and Angels,” and crowd favorite, “She Cranks My Tractor,” Lynch ended his debut Opry performance by thanking the Opry, Country radio and the fans as he kissed the hallowed Opry Circle in tribute to those that had come before him.
