There's something I need to rectify. You see, none of my visits to the Grand Ole Opry have ever occurred on a night when a new member is inducted. I need to change that.

The most recent new members, Old Crow Medicine Show, have now been a part of country music's greatest tradition for a couple of months.

In September, when they officially joined the Opry, they were joined onstage by members Dierks Bentley, Marty Stuart, Connie Smith and others for a medley of the gospel classics "Will the Circle Be Unbroken" and "I Saw the Light."

Now, that's a great Opry moment. Wish I could've been there.
