Darius Rucker Shares His Surprise About Opry Invitation

10/4/2012

Darius Rucker admits he had no idea he was going to be invited to join the Grand Ole Opry. The singer adds that it was a well-kept secret.

Rucker says that becoming an Opry member gives him a true sense of belonging within the country music community. He explains that he went from feeling like "the third cousin that everybody kind of thinks is a member of the family" to being "the first cousin who's like a brother to the oldest brother." Brad Paisley extended the Opry invitation to Rucker on Tuesday's show. Darius will be formally inducted into the Grand Ole Opry during the October 16th show, which will be carried live on GAC.
