Child Prodigy

This appeared on Times-Mail Online - June 1, 2006

At 47, country and bluegrass picker Marty Stuart is no longer the child prodigy. But that doesn't mean he's any less prodigious.

Stuart, earlier this year, released Live at the Ryman, a wonderful tribute to where bluegrass has been and where it continues going.

And for the Mississippi native, nothing has really changed since he joined Lester Flatt's band at the age of 14.

Stuart's still flying down the highway, making wonderful country and bluegrass music. And on June 17, 2006 he returns to Bean Blossom, where his music career started in 1970 when he met Roland White.

For bluegrass fans, Live at the Ryman is a must-have recording.
