Brad Paisley was asked to be a member of the Grand Ole Opry in 2001. So he decided to celebrate in style last Saturday night in Nashville. Paisley sang a few of his biggest hits including a special rendition of ‘Celebrity’ and dedicated it to troubled actor, Charlie Sheen.

Paisley was brought on stage by longtime Opry member, Whispering Bill Anderson. The Opry’s General Manager, Pete Fisher, then handed Paisley a ten year anniversary plaque. A montage of video clips showing the country star at the Opry in various stages of his career was shown on the big screen as well.

Paisley took to his Twitter after the festivities on Saturday night, writing, “Wow, [ten] years as a member of the @Opry! I will never take this place for granted, or truly fathom the love it has shown me.”
