Marty Stuart and Mayor Karl Dean are the recipients of the Nashville Symphony Ball’s Community Awards.

At the Symphony Ball on Saturday, Dec. 11, Stuart will receive the Harmony Award, given annually to someone who has demonstrated continued interest and support of music in Nashville and who has contributed to the development and appreciation of Nashville music culture. Dean will be presented the Gold Baton Award, given for leadership, community spirit and service to others.

“Marty has not only always pushed the boundaries of country music, but has been the torchbearer and authority on all things hillbilly, mountain music, bluegrass, traditional country and southern music, period,” Nashville record producer Tony Brown said in a statement.
