9 years after they first stepped foot on the Grand Ole Opry stage for the first time, Montgomery Gentry was inducted as the Opry’s newest members last night in Nashville. After performing two songs for the crowd filled with friends, family and fans, the duo accepted their Opry statues from Marty Stuart and Little Jimmy Dickens. Holding back tears, Eddie Montgomery said “I remember sittin’ in an old junky station wagon listening to the Grand Ole Opry with my dad. He’d say, ‘It don’t matter what you do in country music; if you don’t become a member of the Grand Ole Opry, you ain’t got there yet… I promise you me and T. won’t let you down.” He then raised his trophy and said “Dad, we made it!”

Listen below as the duo, candidly and emotionally, discuss their Opry induction last night. The sound clips were recorded at the induction ceremony and it’s great to hear the emotion and honor in their voices.
