Carrie Underwood to Co-Host ‘America’s Opry Weekend’
Almost three years to the day when Carrie Underwood was asked to be a member of the Grand Ole Opry, she will co-host 'America’s Opry Weekend' for the 'New Faces of Country' special on the Westwood One radio network.
The show airs the weekend of March 5, and Underwood was asked to become a member of the Grand Ole Opry by Randy Travis on March 15, 2008. She made her Opry debut less than two weeks after winning season four of 'American Idol.'
During the radio special, Underwood will share personal stories and play songs from today's top country stars including the Band Perry, Easton Corbin, Luke Bryan and Eric Church. 'America's Opry Weekend' is hosted by Mike Terry and it includes interviews, Opry performances and behind the scenes pieces.
When asked what she wants to have accomplished by the time she's a 10-year Opry member, the 'Cowboy Casanova' singer says, "I really don't set too many goals for myself. I just go with the flow and enjoy opportunities to do new things as they come around. I just hope I continue to be happy and healthy!" Underwood adds, "I just follow the road that God has paved for me!"
