An Alabama grandpa is going to his first prom at the age of 80.

His granddaughter, Joy Webb, discovered that James Drain had never gone to prom as a teen, so she asked him to be her date, according to a Yahoo! News report.

Webb told Alabama news station WHNT that her family means everything to her and that she finds the opportunity "really neat and special."
