Stuart On Film

This appeared on - December 16, 2010

Marty Stuart will be featured in a short form documentary highlighting his early life and influences in his hometown of Philadelphia, Mississippi. Jacob Hatley, who directed the critically acclaimed Ain’t In It For My Health: A Film About Levon Helm, will direct this project, entitled Marty Stuart In Philadelphia, MS. Select songs from Stuart’s latest album, Ghost Train (The Studio B Sessions), will be featured throughout the documentary in addition to candid stories behind the songs.

“The piece focuses on how music and location work together or how places often inspire and influence artists,” explains Hatley. “Marty’s sound comes from a very specific region, and it was a real privilege to be able to go down to Mississippi and get to know the people who shaped him as an artist.”

The film is set to premiere in early 2011.
