In just a few short weeks, up-and-coming country artist Morgan Wade will mark an important milestone off of her artist bucket list when she steps into the circle at the Grand Ole Opry for the first time ever.
Ahead of her debut, Wade took to social media to announce her debut and share a special message in honor of the big moment.
“I’m very honored to announce that I will be making my Grand Ole @opry debut April 2nd. The Opry is something that I have dreamt about since I was a kid. The fact that I get to stand on the same stage as so many legends is just mind blowing. Can’t wait,” she wrote alongside a black-and-white photo of herself standing on the iconic Opry stage.
