Lynch was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in September and shared how it felt to receive the honor:
“It’s tough to even still fathom. You go “I feel like I’m just getting started,” then you go, “Well, what else sits up there with the Grand Ole Opry? I guess Hall of Fame, Walk of Fame. It’s a heavy trophy.”
“I was [tearing up].I did not want to find out who was going to induct me and freakin’ Reba McEntire came out. There was not a better person to do that for me. It was really special and sweet of her to take time out of her life to do that.”
Lynch is presenting “Single of the Year” for the CMA Awards. We wanted to know, is it more nerve-racking to present or perform?
“I think it would be more nerve-racking to perform. Here’s why: I never get nervous playing on stage in a big arena or stadium because I’m used to it. When you do these shows, there are different elements you aren’t used to and there are 32 million people watching you.”
Moment of truth: Your idol calls you and says he/she wants you to perform with them. Who is the idol and what song do you pick?
“Garth Brooks and we would sing “Two Pina Coladas” “Friends in Low Places” or “Baton Rouge.”
