GRAMMY Museum Gala

Marty Stuart to receive award at December 1 event

Marty Stuart to receive award at December 1 event Special to The Bolivar Bullet GRAMMY®-winning country musician Marty Stuart will be the recipient of the third annual Crossroads of American Music Award at GRAMMY Museum® Mississippi’s 2021 Gala, which will take place at the Museum in Cleveland on Wednesday, Dec. 1, at 6:00 p.m. Presented by Walmart, the 2021 GRAMMY Museum Gala will feature a special appearance by Stuart, who will accept the award and perform live. Tickets for the 2021 Gala went on sale on Oct.15. Additional sponsors include Quality Steel Corporation and Visit Mississippi. More details will be announced soon.  “I am so proud of my Mississippi musical heritage. I’ve proclaimed that all over the world,” said Stuart. “The Crossroads of American Music Award is a tangible reminder of where I come from and what I’m a part of. When you cross the state line the sign reads Birthplace of America’s Music. That says it all. To be recognized by GRAMMY Museum Mississippi for doing something I love and to be mentioned alongside of past recipients Bobby Rush and Charley Pride is indeed an honor.”  “We couldn’t be more excited to celebrate Marty Stuart as this year’s recipient of our Crossroads of American Music Award,” said Emily Havens, Executive Director of GRAMMY Museum Mississippi.  “As a native Mississippian and five-time GRAMMY winner, Marty has made such an incredible impact on the country music industry, and the American musical landscape. We look forward to welcoming back guests to our first in-person gala since 2019 and celebrating all that Marty Stuart has achieved and contributed.”  GRAMMY Museum Mississippi’s Red Carpet Guild, an organization of committed volunteers whose mission is to promote, support and sustain the Mississippi Museum, is currently developing plans for the Mississippi Museum’s 2021 Gala, with this year’s theme being “Sparkle and Twang.” The event will take place on Wednesday, Dec. 1, at 6:00 p.m. at GRAMMY Museum Mississippi and will feature a reception and cocktails, live music, and a silent and live auction. This year’s event will also feature the presentation of the 2021 L.U.C.Y. Award, which honors a K-12 educator from the state of Mississippi who embodies the educational mission of GRAMMY Museum Mississippi.   Tickets to the virtual gala will go on sale on Oct. 15 and can be purchased at www.grammymuseumms.org. Additional details regarding the 2021 Gala are forthcoming.  Established by the Museum’s Board of Directors, the Crossroads of American Music Award honors an artist who has made significant musical contributions influenced by the creativity born in the cradle of American music. The inaugural recipient of the Crossroads of American Music Award was three-time GRAMMY Award winner, the late Charley Pride, and the 2020 recipient was GRAMMY-winning blues icon Bobby Rush.  The annual GRAMMY Museum Mississippi Gala is the Museum’s signature fundraising event. Proceeds from this year’s gala will benefit the Museum’s education program, which seeks to use music as a gateway to learning by inspiring and cultivating creativity, critical thinking and self-expression.
