The Marshall Tucker Band Awarded Pandora Billionaires Plaque
Southern rock and country group The Marshall Tucker Band (MTB) was awarded Pandora’s coveted Billionaires Plaque on Saturday night (Dec. 9) on stage at the Grand Ole Opry, marking the band’s one billion streams on Pandora.
During the band’s set, Opry announcer Mike Terry stopped them for the big reveal. Terry welcomed the late Charlie Daniels‘ wife and son, Hazel Daniels and Charlie Daniels, Jr., to the stage with a wrapped Christmas present containing the Pandora Billionaires Plaque. Two years ago, the MTB presented the same honor to the Daniels family to recognize one billion Pandora streams for The Charlie Daniels Band.
“Receiving this great honor from Pandora was one of the proudest moments in our over 50 years of performing,” explains MTB’s lead singer and founder Doug Gray. “Over one billion streams. We are floored and completely overwhelmed. Thank you Pandora, thank you Grand Ole Opry and thank you to Hazel and Charlie Jr. for making it so very special. I know Charlie was watching. And thank you to the fans. We wouldn’t be here without you. Merry Christmas!”
