The promising newcomer took the stage moments after Lorrie Morgan’s set, revealing the Opry member’s live show had been her first concert, making this a full circle moment.
“I’ve never been more emotional on a stage, ever,” said Jacqueline. “Standing in that circle was such a feeling of gratitude, pride, and happiness, and I am so thankful to the Opry for giving me such a highlight in my career.”
Paying homage to her idol Patsy Cline, Jacqueline closed out her set with a show-stopping rendition of “Crazy” – her grandmother’s favorite song. Crediting the classic as the song that taught her to sing, she dedicated the performance to her grandmother as the attentive audience looked on. Adding to the night, Jacqueline was surrounded by family, friends and her team to celebrate the big moment.
This weekend Jacqueline will continue on the WHITE WINE AND WHISKEY TOUR, supporting fellow emerging artist Jordan Davis in Mount Laurel, NJ (2/16), Asbury Park, NJ (2/17) and Uncasville, CT (2/18). Next month, she’ll take it international with a string of shows at London’s C2C Festival and then head back stateside to join Thomas Rhett‘s LIFE CHANGES TOUR and Brett Eldredge’s THE LONG WAY TOUR as a special guest.
