American Idol‘s Janelle Arthur made her Grand Ole Opry debut on June 19th. Season 12’s southern belle, who covered many country artists on the show (such as Dolly Parton, Vince Gill, Garth Brooks, and Idol judge, Keith Urban), opened her center stage moment with a stunning rendition of Hank Williams’, “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry“. During her set, she also sang a original song, “Young and Reckless”, and a hymn, “Our God, He Is Alive”. On Idol, Janelle won hearts over with her sweet charisma and classic country voice, and there’s no doubt that she will continue to do so in the world of country music. Git it, girl!
