Stars Line Up For The Marty Stuart Show

This appeared on CJFW-FM's website - October 31, 2008

You could call it the Marty Party, Part Two. This Saturday (November 1), Marty Stuart's new show debuts on RFD-TV at 8 p.m. ET. Each episode will feature Marty Stuart and the Fabulous Superlatives, as well as his wife, legendary country stylist Connie Smith. WSM radio personality Eddie Stubbs will be the show's announcer and Stuart's sidekick.

Marty says "I love this show. It represents everything that I cherish about traditional country music. I've fallen head over heels all over again with rhinestones, love songs, train songs, gospel songs, fancy pickin'and the steel guitar. I've always believed God made Saturday nights for country music. This show is a natural for Saturday night."

Stuart's first guest will be Little Jimmy Dickens, followed in subsequent weeks by Earl Scruggs, the Tennessee Mafia Jug Band, Riders in the Sky and John Anderson. In December, Marty welcomes Old Crow Medicine Show, Josh Turner, and the Kentucky Headhunters.

This Saturday (November 1st), Stuart also reunites with duet partner Travis Tritt for a cross-country acoustic tour that starts in Temecula, California.

The exhibit Sparkle and Twang: Marty Stuart's American Odyssey, just opened at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio.

Marty Stuart hosted a series of specials on the now-defunct Nashville Network called The Marty Party.
