Stanley Enjoys Tribute, Scholarship and First Video
It's another eventful week for bluegrass pioneer Ralph Stanley. In addition to a Wednesday (Oct. 16) tribute concert, Stanley's first video -- "Girl From the Greenbriar Shore" -- premieres Thursday (Oct. 17) on CMT Most Wanted Live. Ricky Skaggs headlined the tribute concert at Lincoln Memorial University in Harrogate, Tenn. Proceeds from the show benefit the Dr. Ralph Stanley Endowed Music Scholarship. In 1976, the university awarded Stanley an honorary doctorate in recognition of his achievements in bluegrass music. "Girl From the Greenbriar Shore" is featured on his most recent album, Ralph Stanley, a project produced by T Bone Burnett. CMT Most Wanted Live airs at 7 p.m. ET/PT. 10/16/02
