In the next episode of In The Moment, CMT follows Marty Stuart as he unveils Badlands. The show premieres July 23 at 10 p.m. ET. Badlands is in stores October 25. The album focuses on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota, the home of the Sioux Nation, and the sacred ground where Stuart married the love of his life, country music legend Connie Smith.
Stuart and John Carter Cash produced Badlands, a 14-song collection of original compositions, including one obscure song written by Johnny Cash at the Cash cabin in Hendersonville.
Stuart has launched his own label, Superlatone, with partner Universal South Records. The kickoff release is Souls Chapel due out August 30, closely followed by Badlands on October 25 and Stuart's first bluegrass album in Spring 2006.
