City Proclaims August 15 "Nathan Stanley Day"

Nashville, Tenn. (August 19, 2015) - At just 23 years old, Bluegrass singer/songwriter, Nathan Stanley, has no easy task of carrying on the legacy created by his Grandfather, the legendary Dr. Ralph Stanley, but he is taking steps towards doing just that. In addition to winning two Grammys and being the distinguished recipient of the "Living Legend Award" in 2006, an honor presented by President George W. Bush, Dr. Ralph Stanley has propelled the Stanley name to become one of the most recognizable names in all of music. This past Saturday at a very special Birthday celebration concert, Nathan Stanley was presented with a key to the city of Marion, VA, and August 15 was declared Nathan Stanley Day, an honor conferred by town Mayor David Helms.

"I'm very humbled that Mayor David Helms presented me with such an honor" said an excited Nathan Stanley. "I'll cherish this, and that will be a night that I'll never forget."

The star-studded, SOLD-OUT show, took place in Marion at the Lincoln Theatre, a venue which Nathan has headlined on multiple occasions. The ticket also featured special guests, including Bluegrass icon Dr. Ralph Stanley, Country chart-topper T. Graham Brown and Country/Gospel singer Bob Smallwood. Birthday wishes also came from Josh Turner, Bobby Osborne, Gaither Vocal Band member Wes Hampton and more.

So far, 2015 has been a solid year for Nathan, having recently released his latest album The Legacy Continues. The album features collaborations with both Dr. Ralph Stanley and Country superstar Brad Paisley. The project features everything from the Stanley family-favorite "Rank Stranger" to the upbeat "Papaw I Love You," which was written by Nathan to pay tribute to his Grandfather. Nathan was also featured on Dr. Ralph's critically acclaimed album, Man of Constant Sorrow, alongside Robert Plant, Elvis Costello, Dierks Bentley, LeeAnn Womack, Josh Turner and more. The project was released earlier this year and is available exclusively at Cracker Barrel.

Nashville, Tenn. (March 10, 2015) - Rising Bluegrass prodigy Nathan Stanley is gearing up for the re-release of his album, The Legacy Continues, which is available now. The project is appropriately titled, as the Virginia native is the grandson of Bluegrass legend, Dr. Ralph Stanley, who joins Nathan on two epic duets that will leave fans breathless. On the new project, the soulful-grassy singer takes his traditional sound to a whole new level. The album also features a duet with country singer Brad Paisley. The project was released through Nathan Stanley Entertainment.

On the album, Stanley brings emotion that will captivate fans everywhere! Tracks such as "Papaw I Love You," which is a song that Nathan wrote for his Grandfather, is sure to connect with music listeners and take them on a journey. Other tracks like "Calling My Children Home" stretch genre boundaries, giving off a Celtic vibe, while maintaining its traditional bluegrass appeal. By the time you throw in the Brad Paisley duet with "Will You Miss Me When I'm Gone," these graceful harmonies that are sure to be stuck in fans' heads for days!
Nathan Stanley is no stranger to success, which is evident with his previous release, Every Mile. The project (which included a vocal cameo from his grandfather, among other artists such as Vince Gill and T. Graham Brown) was able to gain the attention of Christian audiences, as it took home the award for "Bluegrass Album of the Year" at the 45th Annual GMA Dove Awards. A longtime member of his grandfather's band, The Clinch Mountain Boys, Stanley has released eight solo records during his career thus far. His 2011 disc My Kind of Country album endeared him to Country and Bluegrass fans alike, and also attracted guest appearances from artists such as Marty Stuart, Patty Loveless, Ricky Skaggs, and Del McCoury. He has appeared on a wide variety of television series, such as The Late Show with David Letterman, TBN's Praise The Lord with Jason Crabb, and Song of the Mountains.
