It is with the heaviest of hearts and deep sadness that we share the news of the passing of our dear friend and Station Inn owner, Earl JT Gray, early on the morning of March 20, 2021.

JT was known for his work in the bluegrass music community as a bluegrass musician and club owner, thoughtfully raising The Station Inn as a home for musicians and fans everywhere. He bought the business in 1981 and established it as a Nashville icon loved by so many throughout the world. JT’s contributions to bluegrass music cannot be overstated.

In addition to countless public awards and recognition, he was inducted into the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame in 2020, featured in the 2021 Grammy’s as an honored venue owner and he presented the award for Best Country Album.

The Station Inn will hold a celebration of life as soon as possible to honor the memory of JT Gray. Details will be announced here. The Station Inn will go dark on Monday, March 22 in honor of our friend and leader. But, just as JT would want, we will “keep the music going,” and we’ll keep you posted on and social media.

JT understood and appreciated greatly the love and support of the bluegrass community, musicians and fans who became family over the years. Arrangements for JT’s burial are being handled by his family and we ask that their privacy be respected at this time. We will continue to update the community as we receive more information.
