This appeared on - January 7, 2010

Marty Stuart, the popular country/rockabilly musician, will be appearing Friday, January 8th, at 8:00 p.m. in concert in Tupelo, Mississippi, the birthplace of Elvis Presley.

The Link Centre, site of the concert, is an intimate 500-seat concert hall venue perfectly suited to Marty's four-piece band, dubbed The Fabulous Superlatives. [Webmaster's note: the Fabulous Superlatives did not perform with Marty.]

Earlier on Friday morning at 10:00 a.m., Marty will participate in the official opening of the Sparkle & Twang Exhibit at the Tupelo Automobile Museum, a collection of some of country music's most memorable artifacts, including Johnny Cash's Man in Black suit as well as an Elvis sweater.

The exhibit has previously been at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio. Complete ticket prices (adults, $10.00) may be found by visiting the official Sparkle and Twang page.

Please note: admission to the Tupelo Automobile Museum (contains an Elvis car or two) gives you access to the Sparkle & Twang exhibit at no additional charge.

Later, from 2:00 to 4:00 p,m., Marty will be meeting with fans to sign autographs, again at the Tupelo Automobile Museum. Emphasis will be on his latest photography book entitled Country Music: The Masters.

Best known for his early '90s hits including "Tempted," "This One's Gonna Hurt You" with Travis Tritt, "Burn Me Down," and "Hillbilly Rock," Marty continues to challenge himself with recent albums including 1999's critically lauded The Pilgrim LP along with 2005's Badlands: Ballads of the Lakota.

Expect plenty of stories from Marty about the history of country music, because he has certainly lived it, becoming Johnny Cash's son-in-law for a moment as well as playing on Cash's wildly popular American Recording albums produced by Rick Rubin.

Marty is also seen every Saturday evening at 8:00 p.m. ET on the RFD-TV channel as host of the popular variety program entitled The Marty Stuart Show.
