One of Wyoming’s own took the stage at a historic country music venue.

Chancey Williams on Friday performed at a sold out concert at Nashville’s famed Ryman Auditorium, home to the “Grand Ole Opry.”

As a rancher’s kid from Moorcroft, Williams could only dream of one day playing the same auditorium graced by country music legends including Hank Williams, Johnny Cash and Patsy Cline.

Thanks to friend and fellow country singer Cody Johnson, Williams got to live out his wildest dream. Williams and his band opened for Johnson at a sold out concert on Friday night.

“Tonight my best friends (my band) and I get to play the Mother Church of Country Music, The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee,” Williams wrote on social media Friday morning. “This is one of those milestones in country music every artist dreams of. And even this morning on the day of show, it still feels like a dream.”

The singer and former saddle bronc rider noted he has had a band since high school and played “just about” every juke joint, tavern, arena, fair and festival across the West.

He said the Ryman performance felt extra special because of how hard his team has worked for it.

“We have had an incredible support group behind us all these years, especially our families, as well as countless other people (you know who you are) and the best damn fan base any artist could ask for!!” Williams said.

Let’s just hope he doesn’t get mistaken for Prince Harry, as he regularly does.

As fans of country music star — and Wyoming native — Chancey Williams, we were aware of the musician’s birthday yesterday.

To see if he provided a glimpse on how he celebrated, we did some searching and although we were not successful in that pursuit, we did find something interesting.

Williams was a guest on a new podcast hosted by Professional Bull Riders entertainer Flint Rasmussen.

In the short but entertaining preview clip, Williams discusses how he is frequently mistaken for royalty — namely Prince Harry.

“We played over in France one year and I got stopped a lot,” Williams told Rasmussen.

“What do you do when you’re in a European country and people think you’re Prince Harry? Do you just go with it?” Rasmussen asked.

“I don’t speak any foreign languages so I just nod and smile,” Williams said.

Rasmussen reminded him that English is spoken in England to which Williams clarified he was talking about France.

“When I was in France and I would hear the words ‘Prince Harry’ and I would just nod and say ‘Oui’ and sometimes ‘Oui’ and ‘Si’, Williams said laughing.

Rasmussen brought up a popular meme from 2018 when Harry got married and someone photoshopped William’s head onto the Prince.

“I didn’t think anyone photoshopped them, I just thought they put a cowboy hat on Prince Harry,” Rasmussen said.
