– Dustin Lynch got a little bit more than he bargained for when he played the Grand Ole Opry on Tuesday.
He was asked to the join the Opry by Trace Adkins. "All the folks at the Grand Ole Opry are very selective," said Adkins. "We think that Dustin Lynch is going to carry on in that grand tradition."
"I can't even talk or I'll start crying," said Lynch, who seemed to shed a few tears in talking about the honor. Referring to his team, he said, "I want to say we would not be here if it wasn't for you guys and girls." Lynch first played the Opry in 2012 playing "Cowboys and Angels. "I'll never forget that day," he said.
Lynch will be inducted Sept. 18.

Lynch is yet another in the seemingly endless line these days, ...
