When we asked George how many phone calls he got on his birthday, he said, “I lost count and had to stop answer the phone so I could get to the Opry House!” . The Birthday wishes didn’t stop there, the opry house was filled from floor to ceiling with friends, family and lots and lots of fans!

Backstage was a green room filled with cake and punch and cameras! Check your local listings for the televised event this weekend on GAC!
