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 was 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.
Nathan Stanley refuses to be a carbon copy. Nathan would say “If it’s been done, I don’t think I’ll do it that way”. His musical influences include Dr. Ralph Stanley, Elvis Presley, George Jones and others.
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 HRH, Queen Elizabeth II visited the state of Virginia. He had a #1 song on the Inspirational Country Music (ICM) charts in 2011 with Vince Gill on the unforgettable “White Dove.” The National Traditional Country Music Association voted “My Kind Of Country” the “Classic Country Album of the Year” in 2011. In 2014, Nathan signed a recording deal with Willow Creek Records Nashville, TN. In October 2014, his album “Every Mile” garnered Nathan his first GMA Dove Award (Gospel Music's Highest Honor) nomination and win for “Bluegrass Album of the year”. In January 2015, Nathan was featured on the Grammy Nominated Cracker Barrel album Ralph Stanley and Friends: “Man of Constant Sorrow.” 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." In 2016 Nathan was voted "Best Bluegrass Artist" at the ICM AWARDS in Nashville, TN. Stanley was the last lead singer for Dr. Ralph Stanley & The Clinch Mountain Boys.
Also in 2016, Stanley made several cameo appearances in the award winning Christmas Movie “Believe" staring Ryan O'Quinn and produced by the great Billy Dickson.
