Scotty McCreery got an unexpected Christmas surprise from Garth Brooks over the weekend. On Sunday night, during the Opry Country Christmas show, Brooks invited McCreery to become the newest member of The Grand Ole Opry.

“Merry Christmas,” Brooks exclaimed, carrying a wrapped gift on stage. He handed the present to McCreery and instructed him not to open it until Christmas. “This is a Christmas present to the Grand Ole Opry,” Brooks announced. “We would love to invite you to be the newest member of the Opry.”

In a heartfelt moment, Brooks removed his cowboy hat, and McCreery, clearly in disbelief, shook his head. McCreery, who has been vocal about his aspiration to join the Opry, promptly and enthusiastically accepted the invitation.

“Holy cow. Yes, I would love to,” he exclaimed. “I grew up listening to your records, Garth, and you’re a part of what made me want to do this for a living. I didn’t think that dream would become a reality, but it is because of all of y’all sitting in this house tonight. God bless y’all.”

Fighting back emotions, McCreery shared that people had asked him about his goals since the beginning of his career, and becoming an Opry member was always at the top of his list. He then bent down to touch the circle of wood in the Opry’s center stage where Opry stars and performers stand to sing.

The official date for McCreery’s Opry induction will be announced in the coming weeks.
