Chancey Williams To Make Grand Ole Opry Debut in April
Written by Brayden McCoy on March 20, 2023
Chancey Williams will be heading to Nashville to make his Grand Ole Opry debut next month.
Chancey grew up in Moorcroft, WY. As a kid, he enjoyed doing things such as rodeo and wrestling. Once he decided to pursue music, the rest was history.
His bio mentions that he “was named iHeartRadio’s 2022 Rocky Mountain Country Music Awards Entertainer of the Year. Williams also won Songwriter of the Year for ‘The Saint’ and Album of the Year for his most recent record produced with country hitmaker, Trent Wilmon, 3rd Street.”
Chancey continues to stay busy as he is getting ready to depart on a tour that will send him to states such as Arizona, California, Tennessee, and Indianapolis.
I was lucky enough last year to talk with Chancey about his music career and how surreal it’s been to see the success he’s had. You can listen to my full interview with him here:
So why is he performing at the Grand Ole Opry such a big deal? Well… not just anyone can perform there.
Rollingstone.com shared, “The Opry’s management team selects a handful of new members each year, taking into consideration the standards that measure success in a country artist’s career: radio airplay, record sales, touring, and recognition by their industry peers.” The late success that Chancey has received has earned him a spot in this year’s lineup!
