Country music artist Chris Janson let his emotions flow as Garth Brooks welcomed him into the Grand Ole Opry family! Watch here.

On Tuesday night, country music singer-songwriter Chris Janson was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry by country music icon Garth Brooks!

“Driving in here tonight, I passed a billboard that says ‘Welcome to the Family,'” Brooks shared during the ceremony. “Family is a great name for this place. Another great name for this place is church. That’s what it’s all about. Because if any time you are at your lowest, these people are going to be here for you. And they’ll expect the same out of you, and they’ll get the same out of you.”

“Chris, it is my honor to welcome you to the family. This will be — no matter how many times you look back on it — the greatest night of your music career. It’s mine,” Brooks expressed as he presented Janson with his membership.

As can be expected, the Missouri native was overcome by emotion as he addressed the crowd.

“To know me is to know I really, truly love the Grand Ole Opry,” Janson shared from the stage while surrounded by his wife, Kelly, and children. “This will be a moment I will never forget. Thanks for making my dreams come true, and thanks for buying a ticket to the Opry to see it happen! I hope you come back a million times! I’ll buy the ticket for ya. I don’t even care. I love you that much!”

“Buy Me A Boat” Lyrics

I ain’t rich, but I damn sure wanna be
Working like a dog all day, ain’t working for me
I wish I had a rich uncle that’d kick the bucket
And that I was sitting on a pile like Warren Buffett
I know everybody says
Money can’t buy happiness
But it could buy me a boat, it could buy me a truck to pull it
It could buy me a Yeti 110 iced down with some silver bullets
Yeah, and I know what they say
Money can’t buy everything
Well, maybe so,
But it could buy me a boat
They call me redneck, white trash and blue collar
But I could change all that if I had a couple million dollars
I keep hearing that money is the root of all evil
And you can’t fit a camel through the eye of a needle
I’m sure that’s probably true,
But it still sounds pretty cool
‘Cause it could buy me a boat, it could buy me a truck to pull it
It could buy me a Yeti 110 iced down with some silver bullets
Yeah, and I know what they say,
Money can’t buy everything
Well, maybe so,
But it could buy me a boat
To float down on the water with a beer
I hear the Powerball Lotto is a-sitting’ on a hundred mill
Well, that would buy me a brand new rod and reel
And it could buy me a boat, it could buy me a truck to pull it
It could buy me a Yeti 110 iced down with some silver bullets
Yeah, and I know what they say,
Money can’t buy everything
Well, maybe so,
But it could buy me a boat
Yeah, and I know what they say,
Money can’t buy everything
Well, maybe so,
But it could buy me a boat
It could buy me a boat

Share this big moment with other Chris Janson fans!
