Marty Stuart's life is coming full circle. Recently signing with Sugar Hill Records, the musician is returning to the label that started his career with his first solo album, Busy Bee Cafe, 27 years ago.

"I found a building full of kindred spirits in the people at Sugar Hill Records," says Marty. "I appreciate what they represent. For years I've respected their support of American roots music and the arts ... I have moved through a series of roots recordings in the past few years while working my way back home -- home being traditional country music.

"The new album, Ghost Train (The Studio B Sessions), is the reflection of the lasting power of a genre and a culture in which I grew up in and love very much," he continues. "Personally, this is a landmark project. To stand alongside of [his band] the Fabulous Superlatives and some of country music's most notable musicians in a room where so much of country music's legacy was forged is beyond words. This project represents a new chapter of life for me, the Superlatives, Studio B and traditional country music. I couldn't ask for more."

Studio B, considered to be one of Nashville's most legendary studios, has recorded artists such as Waylon Jennings, Chet Atkins, Ernest Tubb, Connie Smith, Elvis Presley and many more.

Marty Stuart now shares a label home such notable acts as Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, ACM-winning duo Joey + Rory, Sam Bush and Maura O'Connell. His album will hit shelves later this year.
