Chris Janson is inducted into the Grand Ole Opry

Chris Janson has been welcomed into the Grand Ole Opry, being welcomed by Garth Brooks during Tuesday’s show.
Janson was moved to tears as a result, “How do you not cry on a night like this?…To know me is to know I really, truly love the Grand Ole Opry.”
He went onto say, “This will be a moment I will never forget. … Thanks for making my dreams come true, and thanks for buying a ticket to the Opry to see it happen! I hope you come back a million times! I’ll buy the ticket for ya. I don’t even care. I love you that much!”
Prior to presenting the award, Brooks said, “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.
“Chris, it is my honor 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.”
