Dustin Lynch was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry family on Tuesday night... by his girl Reba McEntire.
McEntire was a hush-hush addition to the night's schedule, as she'd been brought in to surprise induct Lynch, who has a longstanding crush on her.
After performing a live set, Lynch was at a loss for words when Reba appeared onstage.
She told him, "I know how you feel. Do you know that 41 years ago yesterday was the first time I got to sing on this stage?"
She went on to congratulate him heartily: "Here you are 41 years to the day and you get to be the newest member of the Grand Ole Opry. I know this means a lot to you."
(Lynch revealed his crush on McEntire back in 2014, when he admitted that he'd like to give her a smooch under the mistletoe that holiday season.)
