Let There Be Marty

This appeared on GGColumn - Blog - October 23, 2008

Marty Stuart's website just splashed on a new coat of paint in anticipation of the singer's big November.

And Marty ain't waitin'; a week from today, Sparkle & Twang: Marty Stuart’s American Musical Odyssey starts a four month run at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame + Museum in Cleveland. Marty's trotting out over 300 goodies from his collection for the show.

On November 1, his new half-hour show on RFD-TV will debut. "The Marty Stuart Show" will also feature Mrs. Stuart, Connie Smith, as well as Grand Ole Opry announcer Eddie Stubbs (as Marty's sidekick) and special guests.

First month guests joining Marty are Little Jimmy Dickens, Earl Scruggs, the Tennessee Mafia Jug Band, Riders in the Sky and John Anderson. The Old Crow Medicine Show, Josh Turner and Kentucky Headhunters will be by in December.

You can grab a preview of the show on this blurb's bumper. November will also see the publication of an ambitious project: Marty's book, Country Music: The Masters, which collects a slew of history lens over 300-plus pages. The tome also has a one hour audio CD with stories behind the photos on board. The book retails at a penny less than 50 bucks...double that price to grab a linen-covered edition autographed by Marty.

And if that's not enough of the Marty Party, there's his November road shows with ol' buddy Travis Tritt.
