In the deep lonesome hills of southwestern Virginia on August 16, 1992 a baby boy was born into the Stanley family. Nathan Edmond Stanley was born into a music royalty bloodline and family Legacy. As the grandson of the Bluegrass music icon Dr. Ralph Stanley, Nathan made his music debut at the young age of 2 on stage with his Grandfather at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, playing the spoons for the Clinch Mountain Boys. He later graduated to playing the mandolin, and in 2007 became the lead singer and rhythm guitar player for the Clinch Mountain Boys, who are one of the most highly acclaimed bands in the music industry. To rewind his life and look back in time his history is simple, an entertainer on a mission! He’s an original.

He has spent most of his life on a 45-foot tour bus traveling across the United States and internationally. In 2006, he had the great honor to perform for the Queen of England when Her Majesty visited the state of Virginia.

Nathan performed two songs with his Grandfather on the special project. One was the classic “Rank Stranger” and the other was a heartfelt performance of “Hills of Home”.

Nathan Stanley is a class act who is no stranger to success. Stanley has eight solo albums to his credit, recording with artists such as Brad Paisley, George Jones, Marty Stuart, Patty Loveless and many more. His voice is filled with conviction and emotion, with traces of old ghosts from days gone by. He is driven by the passion of the song. Staying true to his bluegrass and gospel roots, Nathan’s faith is no secret to anybody. Every time he steps out on a stage he lets his audiences know that his blessings and talent is a gift from God.
