By borrowing some of his Grandfather's signature flare, the protégé carries on Dr. Stanley's traditional style, which is still in high demand. The 2014 release of Every Mile, takes listeners on a journey with many different twists and turns. Stanley's Southern Gospel meets Traditional Country meets Bluegrass has been positively embraced by music fans.
"This is my first Dove nomination, and I am blessed and honored to be nominated with so many great artists, who I am a fan of" exclaimed an excited Nathan Stanley.
The critically acclaimed album Every Mile produced by Terry Thompson, sees Nathan Stanley collaborating with some of the top artists in the industry.
