Sarah Darling develops "Bad Habit" with Gill
Thursday, February 24, 2011
– Sarah Darling will make her Grand Ole Opry debut this Saturday night, Feb. 26 with a little help from a friend - Vince Gill.
"When I was a little girl my grandpa used to tell me, 'One of these days, you'll make it to the Grand Ole Opry.' It's here," said Darling. "As a singer, it really is a dream come true to play the stage where so many greats have played. I'm so excited to get to play the Opry for the first time. Not only because Vince Gill is introducing me and singing with me on a song that I wrote, but because my grandfather will be in the audience. It's going to be an amazing moment."
The duo will sing Bad Habit, which Darling co-wrote. The song is on her "Angels & Devils" CD, out earlier this month.
