Marty Stuart To Celebrate 20th Opry Anniversary!

Marty Stuart Opry

The Grand Ole Opry® presented by Humana® will honor one of country music’s most beloved ambassadors, Marty Stuart, on his 20th anniversary as an Opry member on Sat., Dec. 8th. Stuart will be celebrated during a one-hour segment on each of the night’s two shows with performances by his wife and fellow Opry member Connie Smith, Charley Pride, Old Crow Medicine Show, and songwriter Brandy Clark. Also appearing with Stuart will be Phyliss J. Anderson, Chief of the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians, along with two Choctaw dancers. Click here to purchase tickets.

The evening’s shows will be held at the historic Ryman Auditorium, where Stuart made his Opry debut alongside Lester Flatt in September 1972 at age 13. Stuart joined the Opry 20 years ago today, on Nov. 28th, 1992.

“Marty has won the love and respect of all of us at the Grand Ole Opry as well as friends and fans around the world,” said Pete Fisher, Opry vice president and general manager. “Like the Grand Ole Opry itself, Marty celebrates and showcases all the styles under the country music umbrella. He has the utmost respect for our musical heritage while also working tirelessly to ensure country music’s future growth. We’re excited to celebrate his Opry anniversary at the Ryman, the stage on which his Opry career began when he was just a teenager.”

The Grand Ole Opry® is presented by Humana®. Opry performances are held every weekend of the year, and the Tuesday Night Opry continues through Dec. 11th. To plan an Opry visit, call (800) SEE-OPRY or log on to www.opry.com.
