Over the weekend, the Grand Ole Opry inducted Charlie Daniels as its newest member.

Marty Stuart and Connie Smith did the honors Saturday night. Stuart welcomed Daniels' into Opry membership by saying the Opry is "a steady force in the midst of passing trends."

Daniels was overjoyed, saying, "My Bible tells me God gives us the desires of our hearts and tonight the promise has come true."

He then invited Stuart, Smith, Montgomery Gentry and Trace Adkins to join him on stage to perform "Will The Circle Be Unbroken."
