Chris Janson's Emotional Induction into the Grand Ole Opry

Chris Janson became the newest member of the Grand Ole Opry this week.

On Tuesday night (March 20), Janson was inducted into the “church” by non-other than country megastar Garth Brooks.

"Driving in here tonight, I passed a billboard that says ‘Welcome to the Family,'" Brooks shared. "Family is a great name for this place. Another great name for this place is church. That’s what it’s all about. Because if any time you are at your lowest, these people are going to be here for you. And they’ll expect the same out of you, and they’ll get the same out of you."

As he handed Janson his Opry membership award, Brooks proclaimed, "Chris, it is my honour to welcome you to the family. This will be — no matter how many times you look back on it — the greatest night of your music career."
