Marty Stuart Turns 50 With A Little Help

This appeared in Country Standard Time - October 2, 2008

Marty Stuart celebrated his 50th birthday at the Grand Ole Opry Saturday night with a little help from his friends. Little Jimmy Dickens rolled a birthday cake, decorated like one of Stuart's trademark Manuel designed jackets, to center stage as Stuart's wife and fellow Opry member Connie Smith enjoyed the surprise.

Keith Urban led the audience of 4,400 in singing Happy Birthdayto Stuart and then joined him on the Hank Williams classic I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry. The two also joined forces on Stuart's hit "Now That's Country" and Urban's chart-topper "Who Wouldn't Want To Be Me?"
