Marty Stuart's New Project
|This appeared in The Nashville City Paper - November 3, 2008|
Longtime country and bluegrass bandleader, songwriter, instrumentalist, vocalist and producer Marty Stuart already hosts one of the best shows on satellite radio. Marty Stuarts American Odyssey airs Friday mornings at 7 a.m. on XM America (XM 10) and all day Friday on XM Exclusives (XMX-2) and features a great mix of classic country, rock, blues and Native American sounds.
Now hes bringing that same devotion to vintage American music to television, though hes focusing here on vintage and traditional country music. The Marty Stuart Show debuted last Saturday and airs weekly on RFD-TV at 7 p.m.
The program includes music from Stuart and his Famous Superlatives, plus appearances from his wife Connie Smith and banjo picker Leroy Troy. The shows announcer and Stuarts sidekick on air is Eddie Stubbs, one of the countrys most knowledgeable authorities on country and bluegrass history.
Saturdays guest will be Earl Scruggs. The Tennessee Mafia Jug Band, Riders In the Sky, John Anderson, Old Crow Medicine Show, Josh Turner and Kentucky Headhunters are also scheduled for future editions. RFD-TV is available locally on digital cable and also on Direct TV and Dish Network satellite systems.
