Manassas, VA -- In 1945, a young Ralph Stanley joined his brother, the late Carter Stanley to form The Stanley Brothers, a pair that would go on to become one of the most influential music duos of all-time. They got their start calling into a local radio station in Norton, Va, where they would sing songs over the phone. After 7 decades, three Grammy awards and an induction into the Grand Ole Opry, Dr. Ralph Stanley has no intention on slowing down as he hits the 70-year milestone. To commemorate this accomplishment, he is playing a special show in Manassas, Va. on October 9 at the Hylton Performing Arts Center. He will be joined by his Grandson, Dove-award winner Nathan Stanley and the Clinch Mountain Boys for this momentous occasion.
