Carrie Underwood is the newest member of the Grand Ole Opry.

Garth Brooks did the induction honors, saying, "Nothing will last as long or be as important as this award right here."

Underwood fought back tears as she accepted the Opry Member Award, adding: "I promise I'll do everything I possibly can to not make you regret it."

The award is a 14-inch bronze replica of an Opry microphone stand.

Underwood is currently headlining her "Carnival Ride Tour" with Opry member Josh Turner.
