One of the most monumental moments in a country singer's career is the opportunity to be inducted into the Grand Ole Opry.

Not everyone gets to be a part of it, but when a singer is, it's something to be celebrated.

With that being said, it's been 20 years since Trisha Yearwood was first introduced into the Grand Ole Opry!

Trisha was welcomed into the Opry family on March 13, 1999, by Porter Wagoner. It had been eight years since the release of her self-titled debut album, which featured her first single “She’s In Love With the Boy”. During her induction twenty years ago, she performed Patsy Cline’s “Sweet Dreams.”

The Grand Ole Opry posted on their social media a nice throw back of Trisha when she first inducted.

This monumental moment and Trisha's career is something to be celebrated!

Of course, her husband, Garth Brooks, showed nothing but pride for his wife as he always does.

The anniversary was celebrated Tuesday night with performances from Rodney Atkins, Trace Adkins, and of course, Garth.

Congratulations Trisha!
