Luke Bryan Invites New Country Star to Perform at Grand Ole Opry

22-year-old Alana Springsteen has been making waves in the country music scene, and her hard work is definitely paying off. Country star Luke Bryan called the singer to invite her to perform at the Grand Ole Opry.

Springsteen shared the video of Bryan calling her and inviting her onto her Instagram page.

She wrote in the caption: “I’ve been waiting for this moment since I was little. there are so many videos of me when I was 9 playing a guitar that was bigger than me in the house I grew up in. I’d put on shows for my parents and grandparents in Virginia… we’d all pretend they were watching me on the Grand Ole Opry stage. getting this FaceTime fm Luke was surreal.”

She continued: “I was 10 when I saw him play Rain is a good thing at the Opry. I had just taken a tour w my parents and we got to watch the show fm the pews onstage which I thought was the coolest thing :) It’s one of those moments that added fuel to the fire as I realized I wanted to chase this dream. after I hung up w Luke I called my parents and grandparents. I’m so grateful they’re going to be there to watch me play…thank u to the entire Opry team for the invite, and to Luke for taking the time to make this an extra special memory. I’ll see u at @crashmyplaya next year. I GET TO PLAY THE OPRY FAM!!!”

She even gets to make her debut on her birthday. Fans congratulated the star in the comments.
