Saturday, August 8, Marty and His Fabulous
Superlatives helped Connie Smith celebrate her 50th
anniversary as a member of the Grand Ole Opry. The

Connie singing "You've Got Me (Right Where You Want
Me)" which were the songs they sang to each other at
their wedding in 1997.

Dan Pavelich of the Kenosha News placed Saturday Night / Sunday Morning as the top of his list of top 10 records of 2014. He wrote, "Marty Stuart's latest is the best record I heard all year. I'll be surprised if it doesn't take home an armload of Grammys. It's a double album divided between sin (Saturday Night) and salvation (Sunday Morning). Filled with jaw-dropping musicianship, this is a welcome reminder of what country music can be."
