It is always a treat to take in a show at the Grand Ole Opry, but for one Brentwood woman and her family it was a once in a lifetime moment.

Shelly McDonough was the 22nd caller in News 2's ticket giveaway this week to meet actor and singer Charles "Chip" Esten from the hit ABC show "Nashville."

Esten, who plays Deacon on the Wednesday night drama, performed at the Opry Saturday night.  McDonough and her loved ones got to meet the star backstage after his performance.

McDonough, who considers herself to be the show's No. 1 fan, said meeting her favorite "Nashville" star was an encounter she will never forget.

"I love the show 'Nashville' and last year when I told my husband If I could ever meet anyone on television I would want to meet Chip Esten," said McDonough.

Esten told News 2 he is grateful to be part of "Nashville" and thankful for the chance to meet devoted fans like McDonough.

"The whole show is a love letter to this town. It means we are doing something that touches them a little, that's what we're after," said Esten.

"Nashville" airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on News 2.
