Carrie Underwood celebrated a major milestone at the Grand Ole Opry over the weekend with her 100th performance in the iconic circle. The singer took part in four sold-out shows while being recognized for her big achievement.

Opry and Country Music Hall of Fame member Connie Smith introduced Underwood during Saturday’s (March 25) first show, where she presented her fellow Opry member with a commemorative print and a rose bouquet in celebration of 100 Opry appearances.

“Opry fans, all of us Opry members, and the entire Opry family are excited when you come home to the Opry stage,” Smith told Underwood. “Even when you’ve been on the road more than 200 days a year, you’ve always come back to the Opry. That tells me you love us, and we love you right back.”

“I grew up dreaming of one day performing here and maybe even becoming a member. That dream comes true over and over each time I take the Opry stage,” Underwood said. “Here’s to the next 100!”

Underwood made her Opry debut on June 10, 2005, less than two weeks after winning American Idol. Invited by Randy Travis, she became an Opry member in 2008. Nine years later, Underwood celebrated her 100-show milestone onstage and backstage, with a special cake from Nashville’s IveyCake and 100 pink roses in her dressing room — a surprise gift from the Opry.

Underwood shared some of the fun with fans via Instagram, writing, “When you play your 100th show at the @opry you shove your face into some delicious #IveyCake !!! That’s just the way it goes! What an amazing night! Thanks to everyone who shared it with me!”

Home is where the #CountryMusic is… @opry ❤️️
