Keith Urban received the surprise of a lifetime when Vince Gill along with Rascal Flatts, Diamond Rio and the Oak Ridge Boys invited him to become the next member of the Grand Ole Opry during Keith’s annual We’re All For the Hall benefit at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on April 11. New Zealand-born and Australian-raised, Keith will be the first artist from outside North America to become a member of the Opry family. Keith will be formally inducted into the Opry on April 21.
