Ex-Old Man” singer Kristen Kelly may be playing the “Virtual Opry” stage on the Brad Paisley Virtual Reality World Tour, but Friday, August 31st, Kristen returned to the stage of the real Grand Ole Opry, marking her fifth visit since her Opry debut back in May. Kristen’s already had some emotional moments playing the Opry, and she says that whether you’re on stage or watching from the audience, you can definitely feel what makes this such a special place for country music. “Anybody that goes to the Opry I think understands the history and the impact that the Opry has had on country music, so you know, they’re supportive of the fact that you might be a little extra nervous and there might be a few extra butterflies floatin’ around. I mean, I played a song, and I got kinda choked up in the middle of the song, and caught up with the lyrics and all that, but they just cheered you through it. And it’s a good feeling to know that I think they understand, and they know where you’re coming from when you’re kind of in awe of what the Opry stands for and that you have an opportunity to play there, because I think any fan that goes to the Opry is in awe of just being in the Opry room itself.”
