Country singer Dustin Lynch was offered the invitation of a lifetime -- to join the Grand Ole Opry.
Singer Trace Adkins surprised the Tullahoma, Tennessee native while he was performing on the Opry’s Tuesday night show.
Lynch removed his hat and was clearly overwhelmed, recalling his first-ever Opry performance in 2012, when he performed “Cowboys and Angels.”
“I can’t even talk or I’ll start crying,” Lynch said.
The “Small Town Boy” singer will be inducted into the Grand Ole Opry on Sept. 18, according to Rolling Stone.
Lynch has played on Brad Paisley’s Weekend Warrior Tour, and is getting ready for the Reason to Drink tour with Cole Swindell, which launches Oct. 4 in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
