Marty Stuart Show Kicks Off Saturday

This appeared in Country Standard Time - October 30, 2008

Marty Stuart's original television series The Marty Stuart Show will premiere this Saturday, November 1 on RFD-TV at 8 p.m. (ET). Stuart handpicks each guest and executive produces the 30-minute episodes himself.

Each show will feature music by Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives, as well as his wife Connie Smith and banjo man Leroy Troy. Radio personality Eddie Stubbs serves as the show's announcer and Stuart's sidekick on every episode.

"I love this show. It represents everything that I cherish about traditional country music," said Stuart. "I've fallen head over heels all over again with rhinestones, love songs, train songs, gospel songs, fancy pickin' and the steal guitar. I've always believed God made Saturday nights for country music. This show is a natural for Saturday night."
