Marty Stuart Creates His Own Record Label

This appeared in Country Weekly - July 4, 2005

 Marty Stuart is trying his hand at becoming a music-biz mogul with the formation of his own label,Superlatone. "I have reached a point in my life where I've asked myself, 'What do I need? Another car, another pair of cowboy boots, another Telecaster?' " he explains. "It became a whole lot more important to me to be true to the art and the vision and the spirit of creativity than trying to chase a chart." Superlatone's first release, set for August 30, will be Marty's gospel album Souls' Chapel. He also plans to release a bluegrass recording: Marty Stuart And His Fabulous Superlatives Live At The Ryman, as well as Badlands, which spotlights his lifelong interest in the lives of Native Americans. He's also finishing work on six books, three of them photography collections.
