Richard “The Old Man” Harrison of the History Channel hit “Pawn Stars” celebrated his 71st birthday at his downtown Gold & Silver Pawn, and his son, newly engaged Rick “The Spotter” Harrison, his grandson Corey “Big Hoss” Harrison and country legend Randy Travis were among the guests who toasted him at the pawnshop.
Travis, who was battling bronchitis, gave Harrison an autographed guitar during a cake presentation, and Harrison later that Friday evening attended Travis’ private performance at Reynolds Hall in the new Smith Center for the Performing Arts for the people who designed and constructed the beautiful venue and other VIP guests.
Dressed in a gray jacket (it’s nice to know that some people still dress up to go to the theater!), Harrison was spotted with packages of M&Ms for his group. Thanks to Scott Harrison for his photo gallery of the birthday presentation.
