ABINGDON, Va -

A bluegrass legend  celebrated a big birthday on Saturday.

Dr. Ralph Stanley turned 87-years-old and celebrated with a birthday party at the Heartwood in Abingdon. Diner, live music, and the birthday boy were all on hand for the celebration.

We caught up with Dr. Stanley as he talked about the year he's had while touring and playings music,"I've had a real good year, enjoyed myself, good weather and a lot of good playing, I've had a good year."


Dr. Stanley's birthday party is also a fundraiser for the Ralph Stanley Museum in Dickenson County.
