ALL IN THE FAMILY AT THE OPRY

Country songstress Jaime O'Neal made her Grand Ole Opry debut on Friday night. The night was special in more than one way because Jaime performed on the famed stage along with her father and two sisters. As a child, she was part of the family singing group, the Murphys, and sharing this special evening with them was a dream come true. "It was real moving. I told my dad not to say anything right before I walked out there, because I didn't want to get emotional. But, of course, he had to say something sweet, so I had to reapply my make-up before I went on," said O'Neal.

Another singer also took the stage on Friday with a family member in tow. Eric Heatherly and his wife Heather performed together at the Grand Ole Opry to the delight of the crowd. Eric was also excited to wear his wife's gift on stage. "I wore a Manuel jacket that my wife bought for me. They presented it to me at my fan club party on Thursday night and it knocked me out. On each sleeve, it has records that say Country,' Rockabilly' and Rock & Roll.' Nothing can sum up my life better than that. My favorite part is that Manuel put my name on the inside."
