Runaway June is still reliving a recent performance at the Grand Ole Opry, marking a special night at the iconic venue. It was an Opry debut with new member Stevie Woodward, and for Lily Maria Moody, Jennifer Wayne’s newborn daughter. Runaway June relived the highlights of the night in a reel set to “As It Was,” from the long-awaited new album from Harry Styles.
Bandmates Wayne and Natalie Stovall welcomed Woodward to the group after former lead singer, Naomi Cooke Johnson, announced that she would leave to pursue solo work. Wayne and Stovall announced last month: “Y’all welcome Stevie… we can’t wait until y’all fall in love with her as much as we have!! It’s been so hard to keep it a secret, but we can’t wait to share the music we’ve been working on!!! Get ready for some harmonies and dueling solos!!! We’ll see you on the road soon!!!! 🤍”
Shortly after Woodward joined the trio, Wayne and her husband, Austin Moody, welcomed their first child. She announced with an adorable photo on Instagram: “Welcome to the world Lily Maria Moody. 4-18-22. We love you so so much. 💕💕💕.” Watch Runaway June’s special night at the Grand Ole Opry here:
