Marty Stuart is known as country musics renaissance man. He has scored six top-ten hits, one platinum and five gold albums, and four Grammy Awards. Keen to broaden the scope of his life-long passion to uncover the depths and eccentricities of Southern culture, Stuart has launched his own label, Superlatone, with partner Universal South Records. The kickoff release was Souls Chapel a Mississippi Delta-drenched, stripped down front-porch gospel record out in 2005, closely followed by Badlands (2005), and Stuart's first-ever bluegrass album, Live at the Ryman in Spring 2006. His most recent release is Compadres (June 2007), an anthology of duets with distinguished artists such as Earl Scruggs, George Jones, Mavis Staples, Loretta Lynn, and the late Johnny Cash.
