Vince Gill, Marty Stuart To Help Del McCoury Celebrate 80th Birthday


Del McCoury will celebrate his 80th birthday with a special event dubbed "Grand Del Opry" featuring Vince Gill and Marty Stuart.

His friends and fellow musicians Sam Bush, Ricky Skaggs and the Travelin' McCourys will also pay musical tribute to the Bluegrass titan, who has long been a member of the Grand Ole Opry.

McCoury and his award-winning band will be seen in action on February 13 at the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville.

McCoury, who will mark his milestone 80th birthday on February 1, first played the Opry in 1963 as a member of Bill Monroe's Blue Grass Boys. Countless albums, festivals and awards later, McCoury, by then heading his Del McCoury Band, became an official Grand Ole Opry member in 2003.

Tickets go on sale on January 18, at 10 a.m. at opry.com.
