This appeared on All Headline News - October 23, 2008

Country music fans who liked shows like "Hee Haw" and "The Porter Wagoner Show" are going to love the new show by country singer Marty Stuart. The new show will feature traditional country music.

"The Marty Stuart Show" will begin airing Sunday (changed to Saturday) nights in November on cable's RFD-TV. Each 30-minute episode will feature music by Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives, as well as his wife, Grand Ole Opry star Connie Smith. In addition, each show will feature special guests.

"This show is about authenticity, from the artists who visit us in the studio every week to the people watching at home," said Stuart. "I want to establish a show that gives a voice and stage to traditional country music."

Stuart, who worked alongside Lester Flatt and Johnny Cash before embarking on a successful solo career in the '80s, will host and produce the 30-minute episodes. Grand Ole Opry announcer Eddie Stubbs will be his sidekick.

"The Marty Stuart Show" will be part of the prime-time lineup with "Hee Haw" reruns, "Postcards from Nebraska" and "Music & Motors."
