Darius Rucker Welcomed As Newest Opry Member

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn.- The Grand Ole Opry welcomed a new member Tuesday night, much to the artist's surprise.

During his performance Tuesday, Darius Rucker was ambushed on stage by country artist Brad Paisley who surprised him with an invitation to become the Opry's newest member.

"Wow, are you kidding me?" Rucker asked when startled with the news. "Oh! Yes! I would."

Rucker has had more than a warm welcome into the country music world. He was named Top New Artist at the CMA awards back in 2009.
