Marty Stuart gave an emotional speech about his brotherly love for Manuel. Marty said he was sixteen when he met Manuel in LA. Manuel gave him a $2,500 shirt for free and told him, “One day you’ll buy the whole store.” Marty says he now owns over a thousand pieces.

Manuel choked up thanking his family in his acceptance speech.
