Another country music legend is getting set to take the stage at the Hanford Fox Theatre.

Award-winning singer Marty Stuart will perform live April 25. Stuart, 54, is a five-time Grammy winner, platinum recording artist, Grand Ole Opry star, country music archivist, Southern culture historian, photographer, musician, songwriter and TV show host.

He started out singing gospel as a child. His toured with bluegrass legend Lester Flatt as a teenager in the 1970s, then spent six years in Johnny Cashís band during the 1980s before regularly topping the charts as a solo artist in the 1990s.

The last decade has seen Stuart making records paying homage to his love of vintage gospel, his Native American passions, and as always, his core of foot-stomping hillbilly music.

Stuartís new backing band, The Fabulous Superlatives, includes guitarist Kenny Vaughan, drummer Harry Stinson and bassist Paul Martin.

Stuart is also featured on RFD-TVís The Marty Stuart Show, a musical variety show and the number one program on the network.

Stuart is excited to be touring again. He said in a recent interview with The Boot magazine that his favorite place to be is on tour in his bus and on stage with the fans.

ďThereís a certain part of me that needs to smell diesel fuel and hear applause and smell popcorn popping before a show starts,Ē he said. ďIn country music, we are weekend warriors and any weekend Iím sitting at home, Iím thinking nobody loves me anymore. So Iím ready to get out there and go again.Ē
