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.
