Carrie Underwood becomes the newest addition to the Grand Ole Opry when she appears on the venerable show tomorrow night. You can bet that she's thrilled about that development, but she's not alone. Opry members Vince Gill and Dierks Bentley both think she'll have a positive effect on the institution.

"The ability to go and get somebody like Carrie Underwood who really is knockin' it out of the park in the biggest way, it gives the Opry great marquee value," Vince told Dial-Global. "And it's not gonna be an artist that in a couple of years is gonna have a nice run and you won't hear from them again. She's really got the talent to have longevity and be a force for a long, long time."

"For Carrie, it's like one of the biggest honors you can have in your career to be tied to this institution," Dierks told Dial-Global. "It's the past, it's the present, it's the future of country music, and what an honor for her. But also for the Opry, what a great, smart move. It brings more attention back to the Opry, so it's a great situation, and I think it's awesome."

You can see Carrie's induction ceremony when GAC airs Opry Live Saturday at 8 p.m. ET. Also appearing during the hour are Dierks and Aaron Tippin.
