Del McCoury Joins Grand Old Opry
October 9, 2003
Del McCoury received a duel honor when Ricky Skaggs and Sonny Osborne invited the bluegrass legend to become the newest member of the Grand Ole Opry as the Del McCoury Band were named Entertainers of the Year at the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) Awards last week. Playing bluegrass since the '50s, it was Bill Monroe who steered him from banjo to guitar. This was McCoury's 8th IBMA Entertainer of the Year Award.
