The Grand Ole Opry captures a major milestone in a country artist's career in My Opry Debut, and the latest episode follows Nashville-based Tenille Townes as she prepares for her first Opry performance.

The Billboard exclusive clip features an emotional mix of the young songstress and her massive support system of 140 family members and friends as they head to the venue. "This moment of getting to step out on to that Opry stage is to me as much as a victory for all of them them as it is for me," she said of her family. "This is something they’ve been dreaming of too right alongside me."

"There have been so many things that I’ve dreamed about for a long time and I’m like yeah that’s way far off, someday. And now someday is here and it’s a pretty crazy feeling," she continues, before stepping out on the stage teary-eyed.

Townes' forthcoming full-length debut album is set for release in 2019 on Columbia Nashville. Watch her episode of My Opry Debut below.
