Scotty's 75th Birthday Party
December 9, 2006

The Gibson Showcase at Opry Mills Nashville

Though Scotty's 75th birthday wasn't actually until December 27th, they threw a big party for him on December 9th.  It was held at the Gibson showcase at the Opry Mills mall in Nashville.  Many of Scotty's long time friends and associates were there to join in the celebrations.  There was an informal jam hosted by James Nick Nixon and many people got up to play including Joe Louis Walker, Scotty's grandson Nick and members of the Grundy Pritchard band (his UK based touring band).   Reggie Young, Billy Swan and Chip Young got together and rendered a version of Billy's "I can help" that they originally recorded in the '70s.  Reggie played the intro and Chips the solo, just like they did over 30 years ago.

It was definitely a blast to attend.  Without more write up we'll just share the pictures, captioned as best I can at the moment.  Enjoy!  Many thanks to the great folks at Gibson for helping to make this happen.
