Late Night Jam - Ryman Auditorium - June 8, 2005

This appeared on

Marty's Late Night Jam started at 11:00 pm, with Marty Stuart and The Superlatives singing "Now That's Country." Marty welcomed everyone and they played and sang "The Whiskey Ain't Working." Marty then introduced his band. They are great musicians! They sang "Tempted."

Then Marty introduced the Legend, Earl Scruggs, the one Marty started working with at the age of 13. He said the other person he worked for was Johnny Cash; two of the best.

Randy Scruggs, Earl's son, and Stuart Duncan played with Earl, and Marty's band all jammed, playing "Orange Blossom Special," and "Foggy Mountain Breakdown." They also sang "Passing Through," a Johnny Cash song.

Next was Holly Williams, Hank Jr.'s daughter, a very pretty long-haired blond. She sang "I Wish I Was a Little Girl," and her Grandpa's song, "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry."

Shooter Jennings was next, singing, "Are You Ready For the Country." His mother, Jessi Colter was also with him. Shooter's last song was "He Stopped Loving Her Today."

Marty and the Superlatives sang again -- "Fallen Soldiers," and "The Farmer's Blues."

Betty Conley then presented Marty with a $21,000 check to the organization that helps artists that are down and out in need.

Marty told us that he has a new record coming out soon.

Jessi Alexander came on stage singing "I Wanna Believe," and "I'm Not Lisa," a Jessi Colter song.

Then, the big star, Dierks Bentley, who just returned from Jamaica came on stage to sing "How Am I Doing," "Come a Little Closer," "A Lot of Leaving Left To Do," and "A Worried Mind."

All came back on stage for the Grand Finale, then Jessi Colter sang "I'm Not Lisa," and everyone joined in to sing "The Weight." The party ended with everyone singing "Amen." Another fantastic show.
