Brooks Officially Invited Ashley McBryde To Opry
Appearing completely stunned, McBryde greeted Brooks as he told her, “I’m here for a proposal.” Noticeably confused, McBryde replied, “Oh?”
“Miss Ashley, this is part of a family that keeps growing. You know where we’re at. We’re at the Grand Ole Opry. I’m standing in the circle of wood right now where you stand. Miss Ashley McBryde, on behalf of the Opry and myself as an Opry member, I’m gonna try not to cry, we would love for you to consider becoming the newest member of the Grand Ole Opry.”
She accepted humbly while crying. “It would be the greatest honour and source of happiness in my life,” McBryde spoke while wiping her eyes of tears.
Brooks continues, “Pretty cool. It’s the longest living family in music history. You belong in it. We need you. You’ll make it stronger for decades to come. I love you! Congratulations! Couldn’t happen to a sweeter person.”
