Clinch Mountain Boys in serious auto accident

Nathan StanleyWe have learned that Nathan Stanley and Dewey Brown, both members of Ralph Stanley & The Clinch Mountain Boys, were involved in a serious automobile accident early this morning (6/22).

We are still collecting information, and will update as we can confirm further details, but it appears that Nathan, Ralph’s grandson and mandolinist with the road show, suffered two broken legs in the crash. He underwent surgery earlier today at Duke Medical Center and is said to be resting now.

Dewey suffered a broken nose and his wife, Leslie, has a broken leg as well, plus injuries to her collarbone.

Hopefully we will have more details in the morning – and some encouraging news!
