When Kree Harrison made her debut at the Grand Ole Opry Tuesday night, she spent most of the time in between her 3 performances completely awestruck. At one point, the American Idol runner-up asked Keith Urban, who introduced her, if she could kiss the famed Opry circle.
But Kree wasn’t too nervous to give 3 gorgeous performances her first time out at the Opry. When the American Idol judge introduced her, he said that when he listened to Kree sing at the judges table, he would close his eyes and imagine what she would sound like at the Opry.
After performing her single “All Cried Out” she touchingly sang “In The Garden,” the hymn she promised her late father she would sing if she ever made it to the Opry.
Keith joined her for her final performance, a lovely duet of Kris Kristofferson’s “Help Me Make it Through the Night.”
I’m tellin’ ya, people. A gorgeous Opry debut from Kree. She’s the real deal. Listen below
