This appeared in The Tennessean - September 23, 1994

....Meanwhile, triple-CMA nominee Stuart's new single, "That's What Love's About," was released this month by MCA Records in conjunction with his first-ever video for a ballad. "With this single we decided to let the fans influence the decision on he Love And Luck track they wanted (for the single)," Stuart told the Entertainment Wire.

The overwhelming response from the more than 8,000 Marty Stuart fan club members was "That's What Love's About," a contrast to the current problems in the headlines every day: domestic violence, alienation and despair. "It is the most tender song I have ever written," Stuart says.

Stuart, a member of the Grand Ole Opry received CMA nominations this year for his collaboration with the Staple Singers on Rhythm, Country & Blues and Asleep at the Wheel on Tribute To The Music Of Bob Wills. His work with Johnny Cash, Travis Tritt, Charlie Daniels and Mark O'Connor on "The Devil Comes Back to Georgia" was nominated for Vocal Event of the Year.

Stuart can also be heard on Mama's Hungry Eyes: The Merle Haggard Tribute, the upcoming benefit for the Second Harvest Food Bank and the Red, Hot + Country AIDS project.

Stuart, 35, has been touring since he was 12 and is a little tired but now lives on the banks of the Cumberland River. "For the first time in my life I have a home, and I really enjoy being around home a lot. At the same time, after I hit the first note of music and hear the first round of applause, I'm ready to stay out there as long as they'll have me.
