Just two weeks after winning Season 4 of AMERICAN IDOL®, Carrie Underwood made her Grand Ole Opry debut. She later became a full-fledged member of the Grand Ole Opry in 2008.
Kree Harrison also performed at the Opry just a couple of weeks after becoming Season 12's runner-up. She sang her debut single, “All Cried Out,” and performed “Where the Blacktop Ends” with Idol judge Keith Urban.
Janelle Arthur had been dreaming about performing at the Opry since she was 7 years old and recently saw that dream become a reality. You can catch Janelle at the Ryman Auditorium for another Opry performance the day after Thanksgiving, Friday, November 29.
Congrats to Carrie, Kree, and Janelle for making IDOL™ history in such legendary fashion!
