On May 11, 2018, Carrie celebrated her 10th anniversary as a member of the Grand Ole Opry by treating fans in attendance to a rendition of her new single, “Cry Pretty,” which is currently No. 12 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart after 15 weeks. “Ten years have flown by,” said Carrie. “I knew from the moment God blessed me and let me sing country music that I wanted to be a part of this place. Thank you for being here.” Three years into her country music career, Randy Travis surprised Carrie with a Grand Ole Opry invitation at a performance in March 2008 and less than two months later, Garth Brooks inducted her into the esteemed organization.
