Newcomer Brooke Eden Makes Grand Ole Opry Debut

Every country artist dreams of playing the Grand Ole Opry, and newcomer Brooke Eden is no exception. The Florida native fulfilled a lifelong dream when she made her Opry debut on Saturday night (Nov. 19).

“I remember the very first time I got to witness what that room feels like, and the only way I can describe it is like baptism day at church,” Brooke said in a statement. “I remember feeling so blessed to just be in the presence of that sacred ground and thinking that could be me one day! I am so grateful that day finally happened.”

Making her Opry debut on the historic Ryman Auditorium stage, Brooke belted out her latest single, “Diamonds,” and performed her very own rendition of Hank Williams’ “Lovesick Blues.” Rounding out the show were legendary country artists Bill Anderson, Connie Smith, Ray Stevens and Ricky Skaggs.

Brooke’s single, “Diamonds,” is featured on her debut EP, Welcome to the Weekend, which is available now.
