Brooks teared up as he asked McBryde "to consider becoming the newest member of the Grand Ole Opry."

McBryde also grew emotional as she accepted.

"It'd be the great joy and the great honor of my life. Thank you," she said.

Brooks celebrated McBryde joining "the longest-living family in music history."

"You belong in it. We need you. You'll make us stronger for decades to come," he told McBryde. "I love you, congratulations. Couldn't happen to a sweeter person."

McBryde is known for such singles as "A Little Dive Bar in Dahlonega," "Girl Goin' Nowhere" and "One Night Standards." She released her third studio album, Lindeville, last week.
