Video Replay- American Idol Alum Crystal Bowersox Makes Her Grand Ole Opry Debut

Crystal Bowersox attended the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville Friday night and wound up making her debut appearance on the Nashville radio show.

Bowersox initially went just as a fan, but Pete Fisher, the show's general manager, asked if he could announce her presence to the audience. When he did, the response was so enthusiastic that Opry member Vince Gill decided to bring her on to perform.

"We do things out here for an awful lot of different reasons, but one is spontaneity, one is fun," Gill said as he introduced Crystal. "I went to the management and said, 'Why don't we do the Southern gentlemanly thing and invite her to sing a song on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry?'"
