George Strait. Waylon Jennings. Merle Haggard. Alabama. Crystal Gayle. Dwight Yoakam. Bocephus. Kris Kristofferson. Kenny Rogers. None of these artists are members of the Grand Ole Opry. Yes, not even Kenny Frikkin Rogers. But do you know who is? Darius Rucker. And while it’s a dang shame that the other artists aren’t members, we’re pleased as punch that the country music institution honored the Holy City’s favorite son. And yes, we like him better than anybody else. And that includes you, Joe. Even you.
