"American Idol" Runner-Up Kree Harrison Making Grand Ole Opry Debut June 4

Michael Becker / FOXAmerican Idol runner-up Kree Harrison is making a beeline back home to Nashville to make her Grand Ole Opry debut on June 4. That show serves as the Opry's kick-off to the CMA Music Festival.

Kree is floored to be on the bill.  She says, "I'm speechless. It has been my lifelong dream to perform at the Grand Ole Opry. I am so honored to be invited!” 

Friday is Kree's birthday, and she told reporters in a conference call that getting the invite to perform on the Opry is the "best birthday present I've ever gotten in my life." She added that she cried when Keith Urban told her Thursday night that she'd be performing on the Opry.

Kellie Pickler, Rascal Flatts and Keith Urban are also on the Grand Ole Opry June 4.

Kree's debut single, "All Cried Out," is now available at iTunes.
