Marty Stuart released Ghost Train: The Studio B Sessions, his 14th studio album, today.
What inspires me now, is traditional country music, says Stuart. Its the music I most cherish, the culture in which I was raised. Its the bedrock upon which the empire of country music is built, the empowering force that provides this genre with lasting credibility. Its beyond trends and its timeless. With all that being said, I found traditional country music to be on the verge of extinction. Its too precious to let slip away. I wanted to attempt to write a new chapter.
As the album title denotes, Ghost Train: The Studio B Sessions was recorded in the legendary RCA Studio B in Nashville, where Stuart participated in his first-ever recording session at the age of 13 playing mandolin in Lester Flatts band.
Studio B has a profound pedigree; its where so much of American musics legacy was forged, certainly country musics, says Stuart. And sonically, this is a room that welcomes music. It seemed to me that in order to authentically stage a brand new traditional country music record we should bring it back to the scene of the crime.
