Hiltons, VA -- Marty Stuart is making the best music of his life. A veteran performer, his career began at age 12 when he played mandolin with the Sullivan Family, a bluegrass/gospel band from Alabama. At age 13, he accepted an invitation to play a show in Delaware with Lester Flatt and the Nashville Grass. Soon he was a regular member of their band. Traveling with them on the bluegrass festival circuit, Stuart met and was heavily influenced by Bill Monroe. Marty credits Lester Flatt with teaching him that it’s often best to stick with what you know. He says in his time with Nashville Grass, Flatt never changed his music.
