LEGENDARY BLUEGRASS ICON DR. RALPH STANLEY SIGNS EXCLUSIVE BOOKING AGREEMENT WITH NEW FRONTIER TOURING
Nashville, Tenn. (August 25, 2015) -
He's been called a "master performer without an expiration date" by
Rolling Stone, "a cultural treasure" by the Los Angeles Times and
"undeniably the most important figure in bluegrass music today" by the
Chicago Tribune, and at 88 years old, the oldest living member of the
Grand Ole Opry, Dr. Ralph Stanley, shows no signs of slowing down. He
recently signed an exclusive booking agreement with the booking giant,
New Frontier Touring. The Grammy award winner will work closely with
New Frontier Touring President Paul Lohr to bring the unique, Stanley
Mountain sound to audiences around the world.
"Dr. Ralph Stanley is an American Music icon" said Lohr. "The
team at New Frontier Touring is deeply honored and excited to represent
'The Man of Constant Sorrow' Tour Featuring Dr. Ralph Stanley with
Nathan Stanley & the Clinch Mountain Boys!"
Keep a close eye out, as 2016 dates will soon be announced.
You never know what other special guests will come along for the ride,
singing side by side with Dr. Ralph Stanley in a city near you. So far
in 2015, appearances have featured everyone from Country chart-topper T.
Graham Brown, to fellow Grammy winner Lee Ann Womack, who performed at
Stanley's special Birthday celebration in February. With Dove
award-winner Nathan Stanley on the ticket, fans will be taken on a
musical journey that will be the experience of a lifetime!
The tour is named after Stanley's latest album, Man of Constant Sorrow, which was released earlier this year exclusively through Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® locations. The #1 Billboard albumfeatures
collaborations with Robert Plant, Elvis Costello, Dierks Bentley, Lee
Ann Womack and various others. The album was met with high critical
