The 35-year-old singer took to Instagram on Friday to celebrate the momentous occasion with a sweet selfie at the legendary concert hall. Underwood later took the stage for her first performance at the Grand Ole Opry since injuring her face in a scary fall at her Nashville home last November.
The "Cry Pretty" singer performed her new single, as well as hits like "Jesus, Take the Wheel," "Temporary Home," and Randy Travis' "An Old Pair of Shoes." Though Underwood was inducted into the Opry family on May 10, 2008 by Garth Brooks, it was Travis who surprised her with a membership invitation two months earlier.

"10 year anniversary #OprySelfie @opry ❤️❤️❤️," Underwood captioned her selfie, before reflecting on the incredible night.
"Thank you, #RandyTravis for always being so sweet to me! Thanks, @garthbrooks for the flowers! Thanks @bradpaisley #CrystalGayle @vincegillofficial and @reba for the kind words and messages!" she wrote. "A special thanks to my Opry family and all the people on my team for the wonderful surprises!"
"Thank you, fans, for all the love and support you have always given and continue to give. And, last, but not least, thank you to the Bologna Lady and my @umgnashville family for being here to celebrate!!!" Underwood concluded. "My heart is full."
“In the beginning, I didn’t know how things were going to end up. It just wasn’t pretty,” she admitted.
When Hoda Kotb praised her, saying she looked the same, Underwood shyly replied, “I have a dedicated team of professionals who can spackle and paint and paste. Every day I feel a little more back to normal.”
