The Kentucky Opry and Classic Country WiLLiE 102.7 are bringing Country Music Stars Marty Stuart (Grammy™ winner) and Connie Smith (Country Music Hall of Fame) to the Carson Center stage on Friday, January 25. Marty Stuart and Connie Smith, who are husband and wife, are Grand Ole Opry stars.

Stuart – who toured for years with Johnny Cash – plays guitar, bass, mandolin, and fiddle.  He broke into the Top 10 in 1990 with the album Hillbilly Rock, which went Gold, as did the follow-up, Tempted. Stuart’s duets with Travis Tritt, "The Whiskey Ain’t Workin’" and "This One’s Gonna Hurt You (For a Long, Long Time),” won the duo a Grammy™ and CMA Award.

Dolly Parton is quoted as saying: “There’re really only three female singers in the world: Streisand, Ronstadt, and Connie Smith. The rest of us are only pretending.” Smith’s first Number One hit song was "Once a Day" in the mid 1960s. More Top 10 hits followed, including 'I Can’t Remember"; "Nobody but a Fool"; "Cincinnati, Ohio"; and "Just One Time".
