Country artist Marty Stuart will celebrate his 20th year as a member of the Grand Ole Opry on Saturday, December 8.

During his performances at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville that evening, he will be joined on stage by fellow Country artists Charley Pride, Old Crow Medicine Show and his wife Connie Smith.

Stuart made his Opry debut in 1972 alongside Lester Flatt when he was 13 years old. He later joined in 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. 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,” said Opry Vice President and General Manager Pete Fisher.
