Patty Loveless had to sing for her supper—or at least for her cake—at the Grand Ole Opry Saturday night (June 15).

The Grand Ole Opry hosted a party to celebrate Patty’s 25th Anniversary as an Opry member.

In addition to a cake honoring her Kentucky roots, Patty was honored by friends like Loretta Lynn and Connie Smith. She also performed with longtime pal and duet partner Vince Gill.

“It’s hard to believe it’s been 25 years,” said Patty. “I know my family is listening in tonight, and I’m sure they are very, very proud of this moment for me. My dreams were their dreams as well.”
