Grand ole opry Songs | 99-Year-Old Fiddler Player Blows Everyone Away With Opry Performance | Country Music VideosViolet Brumley Hensley, also known as the "Whittling Fiddler," has been a musician for most her life, a fact made apparent every single occasion she takes stage.  At 99 years of age, Violet completely blows away the audience with her performance on the Opry stage. With each and every stroke of her fiddle the almost century long experience shows through.


When the work's all done and the sun's settin' low,

I pull out my fiddle and I rosin up the bow.
