JAMIE O'NEAL -- DREAMS COME TRUE AT FAN FAIR

Jamie O'Neal grew up performing with her family and traveling. The family came to the U.S. from Australia, and they lived and performed in many areas of the country -- they even lived in Nashville three different times.

Jamie says it was always a goal in her life to appear on the Grand Ole Opry with her family -- and that goal was finally realized at this year's Fan Fair.

"Yes, I did manage to do that with my dad and two sisters," she said. "It was fantastic. Just amazing, really. I told my dad, 'Don't say anything right before I go out there because I don't want to get emotional,' but of course he had to say something. I went and reapplied the makeup and went on."
