Ernest Tubb Record Shop Celebrates 50 Years With David McCormick

David McCormick, owner of Ernest Tubb Record Shop, was recently honored for 50 years of ownership of the iconic Nashville landmark. A surprise party was held at Hank Snow’s home, The “Rainbow Ranch,” by past and present employees and other guests including Jan Howard, Tim Atwood, Bobby Marquez and Midnite Jamboree emcee Jennifer Herron.

“What a surprise and honor it was to be joined by my staff from past to present, along with family and friends, to celebrate 50 wonderful years of running Nashville’s most famous record shop. This is truly something I will never forget,” McCormick said. “I owe a lot of gratitude to not only my staff, but also to the many customers of Ernest Tubb Record Shop. Thank you, everyone!”

Ernest Tubb Record Shop has been open for more than 70 years, and is the oldest advertiser on 650 AM WSM. The Ernest Tubb Midnite Jamboree, founded by Mr. Tubb in 1947 at the original Ernest Tubb Record Shop on Broadway in downtown Nashville, is the second-longest running radio show in history. Heard weekly at Midnight (CT) on WSM, the show is currently recorded from the Texas Troubadour Theatre (2416 Music Valley Drive) at 10pm every Saturday night.

During CMA Fest Ernest Tubb Record Shop will host meet and greets, artist signings and performances at 417 Broadway through Sunday.
