I love seeing the reactions in this video. Marty Stuart invited Old Crow Medicine Show to be members of the Grand Ole Opry.

My nephew Gill Landry, a Lake Charles native, is second from the right: You may recall me discussing him a time or two here on the blog.

Great news. And it's always nice to see the reactions when something like this happens.

Seeing the band (and Gill) at the Oregon Zoo in Portland was the highlight of my summer. I know this is a big highlight for him and for his band mates.

Congratulations, guys.
