Rising country star Erin Kinsey fulfilled a lifelong dream on Saturday, April 23 when she stepped into the iconic circle on the Grand Ole Opry stage for the first time ever.
The Texas native performed for a full house, including several friends and family members during her Opry debut, making for a moment she won’t soon forget.
“I don’t really have the words for this, and don’t know if I ever will. But thank you so much to the Grand Ole Opry for giving me a chance to share my music and my story on the biggest stage in country music,” shared Kinsey on socials. “The weight of that circle and the legends that have performed in it, is so real and I feel so honored to have been able to feel it. Can’t wait to show y’all all of the behind the scenes, but for now I’m still taking it alllll in. Thank you to everyone who spent their Saturday night freaking out with me… it meant the world.”
Kinsey performed songs from her just-released debut EP, 40 East, including “Hate This Hometown” and her current single, “Just Drive.”
