This appeared on Rodeo Attitude News - November 1, 2008

Country Music Icon Marty Stuart's original television series The Marty Stuart Show premieres Saturday, November 1. Fans across America who love country music in its purest, most traditional form will find it every week on RFD-TV at 8:00 p.m. (ET), where Stuart handpicks each guest and executive produces the thirty-minute episodes himself.

Each show will feature music by Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives, as well as his wife Country Queen Connie Smith and banjo pickin' Leroy Troy. Radio personality Eddie Stubbs serves as the show's announcer and Stuart's sidekick on every episode.

"I love this show. It represents everything that I cherish about traditional country music," said Stuart. "I've fallen head over heels all over again with rhinestones, love songs, train songs, gospel songs, fancy pickin' and the steal guitar. I've always believed God made Saturday nights for country music. This show is a natural for Saturday night."

The following guests will appear through December:

Nov. 1 Little Jimmy Dickens
Nov. 8 Earl Scruggs
Nov. 15 Tennessee Mafia Jug Band
Nov. 22 Riders In The Sky
Nov. 29 John Anderson
Dec. 6 Old Crow Medicine Show
Dec. 13 Josh Turner
Dec. 20 Kentucky Headhunters

As an avid collector and historian of country music, Stuart 's other ventures include the largest private music memorabilia collection in the country Sparkle and Twang: Marty Stuart's American Odyssey, which opens today at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio.

Stuart and long time friend Travis Tritt will reunite this fall for a cross-country acoustic tour kicking off November 1 in Temecula, CA.
