Chris Janson officially became a member of the Grand Ole Opry earlier this week, with Garth Brooks on hand to do the induction.
“Driving in here tonight, I passed a billboard that says ‘Welcome To The Family.’ Family is a great name for this place,” Garth said. “Another great name for this place is church.
