Marty Stuart At Holland Center
|This appeared on Omahanightlife.com - July 24, 2010|
Marty Stuart is an entertainer in every sense of the word. His sharp clothes coupled with his infectious enthusiasm in front of an audience make for a performance nothing short of sensational.
Since starting out singing gospel as a child, the bluegrass stint with Lester Flatt in the 70s, the six years with Johnny Cash in the 80s, and coming up with his smash Hillbilly Rock hits of the 90s, the four time GRAMMY-winner, platinum recording artist, Grand Ole Opry star, country music memorabilia preservationist, stylist, designer, photographer, songwriter, all around renaissance man, charismatic force of nature, and (first of all, perhaps), leader of the extraordinary, versatile touring and recording band The Fabulous Superlatives, Marty Stuart has shown a showmans zest for every conceivable flavor of country music. Not to mention, a missionarys zeal for bringing the importance of the music and its themes home to long-time fans and newcomers alike. Musicologist Peter North cites, Marty Stuart seems wrapped in his destiny at this point in time. Not only as country musics most notable ambassador/caretaker, but as its main archetypical crusader. He has without question evolved into one of the most important roots musicians and visionaries in America.
For two seasons he has hosted The Marty Stuart Show on RFD-TV, a show that is ever-gaining momentum. Stuart, who is married to country queen Connie Smith, does not hesitate to credit his musical compadres for his ability to create great music and entertainment. Each episode of The Marty Stuart Show features fellow country music stars of past and present, which serve as a testament to both his desire to work with, and appreciation for other musicians.
