Carly Pearce is set to become the latest member to join the Grand Ole Opry after Dolly Parton surprised Pearce by asking her to join the famed country music institution.

In a video posted by Grand Ole Opry, Pearce, who is backstage at the Opry House, can be seen giving an interview, which she assumes is to promote Dollywood. In the middle of Pearce talking about her memories of Parton’s theme park in Tennessee, Parton herself walks in, giving Pearce a huge surprise.

Parton notes that Pearce has already performed at the Grand Ole Opry 80 times, adding, “You should be a member of the Grand Ole Opry! What’s the matter with them?”

When Pearce replies, “I agree,” Parton again surprises her by saying, “I came here today to tell you, you are now an official member of the Grand Ole Opry.”
