MOMENT OF SILENCE
Before the curtain rises, Hale takes a moment on stage with the Opry's general manager Pete Fisher. She performed her new single, "Lie a Little Better," on stage Saturday night (she shot the video at the Opry house over the weekend, too!) and will debut the song June 30 on Good Morning America.

AND SO IT HAPPENS
There she is! Hale finally takes the stage for her Opry debut. "Little girls dream about their wedding dress. I dreamed about the dress I was going to wear on the Opry," she told the crowd (for the record, it was a Dsquared2 white leather lace '50s dress). After the show, she Tweeted, "No words. Beyond blessed. Thank you @opry for the best night of my life."
