Blake Shelton Inducted Into Grand Ole Opry

Blake Shelton is now a member of the Grand Ole Opry. The singer calls an Opry induction "the Nashville dream" and "the pinnacle" of accomplishments. He adds that he believes it's the greatest honor he could ever receive in his career.

Shelton was inducted Saturday night in front of a sold-out audience that included family, friends and fans. Fellow country star and "Hillbilly Bone" duet partner Trace Adkins took on the task of officially welcoming Shelton to the Opry. In so doing, Adkins presented Shelton with the Opry Member Award. Shelton also performed some of his hits at the Opry Saturday night. His set included "She Wouldn't Be Gone," which was the song fans voted to hear through an Opry Twitter campaign, and his most recent chart-topper "It's All About Tonight." "Home" was the first song Shelton performed as an Opry member.
Blake Shelton made his Grand Ole Opry debut in May 2001. Nine years later, on September 28th, 2010, he was invited to become the venue's newest member. The invitation came on the same night that the country music community came together to celebrate the reopening of the Opry House five months after flood damaged the home of the legendary music showcase. The Grand Ole Opry is celebrating 85 years of existence this year.

Brad Paisley To Become An Author

Brad Paisley can now add author to his lengthy list of career achievements. He's penning his first book -- "The Diary of a Player" -- which is scheduled for release in the spring. The book honors the country, blues, and rock and roll guitar greats who influenced Paisley and tells Brad's story on how he became the person he is today. The liner notes Brad wrote for his instrumental album "Play" sum up the essence of "The Diary of a Player." He wrote for the 2008 CD, quote, "When I was eight I got a gift from my grandpa. No coincidence that around that time I also got an identity. See, no matter how I have changed, learned and evolved as a person, the guitar has been a major part of it, and really the only constant."

Paisley is teaming with David Wild on the project. Wild is a contributing editor to "Rolling Stone" as well as an Emmy nominated TV writer and producer. "The Diary of a Player" will be published in May by Howard Books, an imprint of Simon and Schuster.
