Moonstruck Management is proud to announce the addition of Ben Wilson as a new Artist Booking Agent with the agency. “I am very excited about the addition of Ben Wilson to Moonstruck. In the evolution and expansion of a business, it is critical to have the right personnel in place to execute the vision of a business model.
Ben has a vast amount of experience being the Executive Director of the famed Uncle Dave Macon Days Festival, both in how to work with artists directly, and also contract negotiations. His genuine personality combined with true passion for the music and business is the perfect mentality. I am excited about the new developments within Moonstruck and the future that lies ahead for our team,” says Owner Josh Trivett.

"The end of an era, the passing of a King, a kind and humble King from the mountains. He carried the ancient sounds from God knows where. Ralph found it in the music of the mountains, in the hollows, in the people and in the churches. He was my hero and I was blessed to know him, love him and make music with him as a young teenager. The Scriptures tell us 'God uses the simple things to confound the wise.' He certainly used Ralph Stanley to bring the music of the mountains to the masses." -Ricky Skaggs
"I'm asking all of you prayer warriors to please keep my precious papaw/dad, Dr. Ralph Stanley, in your prayers.
He needs a healing touch from God right now, and I know he is more than able to do it.
I ask that you speak very positive about my papaw, because words are very powerful. That little guy (who is a Giant in my eyes) is my everything!
I thank you folks in advance. Nothing is impossible with God."

never be forgotten. - John McEwen
