Big Night For Dean Brody

Last night was a big night for Dean Brody, as he made his debut at the Grand Ole Opry. He did an awesome job, and received a rousing ovation from hundreds of Opry fans in attendance. He did backstage interviews afterward and was surrounded by a group of adoring female fans.

We went backstage and joined in the fun. Even Clark, his manager, was excited (and he usually doesn't always show much excitement)!

We also met Darius Rucker (formerly Hootie of Hootie and the Blowfish) and Opry legend Little Jimmy Dickens. Other acts included Jeannie Seely, Ricky Skaggs, the Sons of the Pioneers, Riders in the Sky and Mike Snider, among others.

Dean's single, "Brothers," continues to do well on the charts, and his first album will be in stores on April 28. It's a good one!!!
