After performing her new single “Hang Tight Honey,” Reba praised Wilson’s talent and influence, leading to the emotional announcement.  Wilson expressed her admiration for Reba and her lifelong desire to perform at the Grand Ole Opry. “Lainey, I am so proud of you. You did a wonderful job,” said Reba.

“I have heard that I’ve inspired you and what you’ve done so far, and I am thrilled to death if I had anything to do with your career, ’cause you are blowing it up. I couldn’t be more proud to be the one that helps you continue to bridge the gap between our generations, keep ’em all goin’. I’d like to be the person who invites you to be an official member of the Grand Ole Opry.”
