Watch Vince Gill & Joe Diffie Induct Luke Combs Into the Grand Ole Opry

After John Conlee, Chris Janson and Craig Morgan surprised Luke Combs with an invitation to join the Grand Ole Opry on June 11, Luke was officially inducted into the esteemed organization on July 16 by musical heroes Vince Gill and Joe Diffie.

During his set, Luke performed No. 1 hits “When It Rains It Pours” and “Beer Never Broke My Heart,” before Joe and Vince joined him onstage along with The Gatlin Brothers, Chris Janson, Dustin Lynch, Craig Morgan and Mark Wills.

“This is what dreams are made of right here,” said Vince. “If you’ll come here and you’ll invest in the people and this stage, you’ll get back a hundred-fold what you ever give to this place.”

“I remember being asked to be a member of the Opry, and it was like a dream,” added Joe Diffie. “And it still feels like a dream, even to this day. On behalf of myself and all the Opry members past, present, and future, Luke Combs, you are now officially the newest member of the Grand Ole Opry!”

“Here I am onstage with people I grew up listening to and people who have shaped me as an artist,” said Luke. “I just want to say thank you to you guys, thank you to the Grand Ole Opry, and thank you to the fans—without you all there is no country music, there is no Grand Ole Opry. Thank you so much for everything you guys do for making this possible for guys like us on this stage. I will never forget tonight!”

Luke rounded out his Opry induction set with his first song as an Opry member, “This One’s For You.”

From Patriot to Punchline By Rick Worthington 9/3/20 Have you ever tried to do something good, but went about doing it the wrong way?
