Marty Stuart, Jett Williams At Deerwood Saturday Night

This appeared in the Macon County Chronicle - August 2, 1994

Marty Stuart, one of the top singers in modern country music today, brings his "Love and Luck Tour" to Deerwood Amphitheater this Saturday night, August 6. Opening for Stuart will be Jett Williams, the daughter of one of country music's most legendary figures, Hank Williams Sr.

Stuart's latest album, Love And Luck, has apparently jumped him into the ranks of superstars after years of dues-paying. The album, his seventh, has gotten rave reviews from publications as dissimilar as Rolling Stone, People and USA Today.

It apparently didn't come quick and easy for Stuart. But he has had a ride to the top than nearly any young musician might envy. Riding Ernest Tubb's bus at 13, playing mandolin on tour with Lester Flatt until Flatt's death in 1979, then six years with Johnny Cash's Band, performances with such varied stars as Bill Monroe and Doc Watson to Neil Young and Bob Dylan--it's a Mississippi country boy musician's dream.

He married Johnny Cash's daughter Cindy and then crashed in 1987 when that marriage failed. But in 1992, he teamed up with Travis Tritt on the No Hats Tour with their hit song, "The Whiskey Ain't Workin'," and since then, life has been rosy for Stuart.

He comes into Red Boiling Springs (TN) on the crest of a wave of popularity and the show is sure to be one of the best ever to play Deerwood Amphitheater.
