Marty Stuart 25th Anniversary as Opry Member

Marty Stuart to Celebrate 25th Anniversary as a Member of the Grand Ole Opry

Grammy® Award-winning multi-talented Marty Stuart will celebrate his 25th Anniversary as a Grand Ole Opry member with appearances on two Opry shows Friday, December 1 at the Ryman Auditorium. Stuart was inducted in the Opry family on November 28, 1992, some 20 years after he first played the Opry at 13 years old as a band member for legendary Country Music Hall of Famer and Opry member Lester Flatt.

Stuart is widely regarded as one of country music’s biggest champions worldwide. The Mississippi native has said, “The Opry is a way of life. It’s an institution that gets passed on every weekend. If you’re going to be a country performer, the Opry is the place to be.”

The five-time Grammy winner continues to record and release keenly relevant music, records that honor country’s rich legacy while advancing it into the future.

Earlier this year he released his 18th studio album, Way Out West. It was named one of the “Best Americana Albums of 2017” and NPR Music proclaims “is Marty Stuart’s album-length paean to the myth and magic of the American West.”

Among those scheduled to be on hand to celebrate with Stuart are his wife, Opry member Connie Smith, Old Crow Medicine Show (who Stuart invited to become Opry members in 2013), Charlie Worsham, and Stuart’s band, The Fabulous Superlatives. Among others coming soon to the Opry are Dailey & Vincent, Radney Foster, Gaither Vocal Band, Drew and Ellie Holcomb, Alison Krauss, LoCash, Martina McBride, Carly Pearce, and Chris Young.
