CLARENCE SPALDING, LIVING LEGEND
3/1/18

Acclaimed manager Clarence Spalding was honored with the Bob Kingsley Living Legend Award for his impact on country music during a 2/28 event at the Grand Ole Opry House. The award was created in 2014 to recognize the most deserving individuals across the spectrum of labels, creative/production and radio/media. The evening benefitted the Opry Trust Fund, which for more than 50 years has supported members of the country community in need. 

Jason Aldean presented Spalding with his award (see photo at right) and performed at the ceremony, as did Terri Clark, Brooks & Dunn, Exile, Rascal Flatts, Reba and Darius Rucker. Colleagues and friends who turned out included Steve Buchanan, Robert Deaton, Espo, Randy Goodman, Mary Ann McCready, Stan Moress, Brian O’Connell and Sally Williams.
