Join us now for 30 minutes of fun and great country music. I'm Eddie Stubbs. Now how about a Superlative welcome for our host, a Mississippi band headin' to California with the blues. Here is Marty Stuart." Marty said, "Got the blues bad." They performed "California Blues."

Marty said, "Thank you for tunin' in The Marty Stuart Show. Had them California blues, Superlatives. Sounded good, Mr. Carter. Now let me tell ya about a sound. It is the blues and country music and gospel music all rolled into one. Comes from the eastern state of Tennessee right in the corner of Virginia. Almost a hundred years ago, Mother Maybelle, Uncle A.P. and Aunt Sara Carter came across the mountain with a sound that has become synonymous with American music. Truly spiritual, wonderful music. Carryin' on that great sound is Janette's little boy, Uncle A.P. and Sara's grandyoung'un, along with his great band, Hello Stranger. From Scott County, Virginia, ladies and gentlemen, how about a hand for Mr. Dale Jett and Hello Stranger with a great Carter Family song. .Welcome children. There's Oscar and Teresa and ole Dale." They performed "No Depression In Heaven."

Marty said, "Yes, sir. That's beautiful. Fine job, Dale Jett, Oscar, Miss Teresa. Thank you so much." Eddie Stubbs said, "Great job right there from Dale Jett and Hello Stranger. 'No Depression In Heaven'. Boy, the sounds of early country music is alive and well here today on The Marty Stuart Show." Eddie promoted the two DVD set of highlights from the first season of The Marty Stuart Show. After a commercial break, Marty said, "Welcome back to The Marty Stuart Show. Hey, Superlatives. Dale and Oscar and Teresa loadin' up them hay bales. Fine job. Eddie Stubbs. You got a second?" Eddie comes over to Marty carrying his fiddle. Marty says, "Hello, Mr. Stubbs." Eddie says, "Hello, Mr. Stuart. You rang?" Marty says, "Yes, sir. Fillin' in for Connie Smith today, I tell ya what. We closed Season 1 with you playin' the fiddle and the cards and letters poured in. Folks wanna hear you play some more fiddle. You're not as pretty as Connie Smith." Eddie said, "Well, that's for sure." Marty said, "Yeah, but you play the fiddle better than she does." Eddie said, "She's got a lot more hair than I do, too." Marty said, "How 'bout fiddlin' us a little tune." Eddie said, " 'Wake Up Susan'. Will that be all right?" Marty said, "That's a good one. In the key of A." Eddie said, "In the key of A."

Marty said, "Hey. See there. Fine job, Mr. Stubbs." Marty and His Fabulous Superlatives performed "Drifting Apart."

Eddie Stubbs said, "My goodness. That's some great traditional country music there. 'Drifting Apart'. Marty Stuart and the Fabulous Superlatives. Gary Carter making that steel guitar sound so great, too." Eddie then promoted Marty's photo book, Country Music: The Masters. After a commercial break, Marty said, "One more time, Apostle. Welcome back to The Marty Stuart Show. If you'll notice, all around our set, you'll see signs from my home state of Mississippi. And I tell ya, if you go online you'll see why it's called 'The Birthplace of American Music'. You'll be surprised at what all comes from there. If you're out drivin' around, go see my home state of Mississippi. It's beautiful country and wonderful people. Speakin' of wonderful people. Here's several wonderful people rolled up into one. The Sultan of Goodlettsville, how 'bout a hand for the ole Tennessee Slicker, the most popular man in country music, ladies and gentlemen, Dale, here he comes, Leroy Troy. How 'bout it, Leroy. Several people rolled up into one. "

Marty: "Hello, Leroy. Let's get Eddie Stubbs to play the fiddle with us."

Leroy: "Yeah, we got Eddie. We sure do."

Marty: "What's on your mind today, Leroy?"

Leroy: "Well man, I tell ya what, I'm glad to see all my old buddies down here."

Marty: "That's right. From the Carter Fold."

Leroy: "I've sat on a hay bale a many a time waitin' for this bunch to get done singin' and pickin'."

Marty: "Well now they're sittin' on a hay bale waitin' on you."

Leroy: "That's right."

Marty: "Whatcha got in mind for us?"

Leroy: "It was late last night when Sally come home."

Marty: "It certainly was." Leroy sang "Way Downtown."

Marty said, "That's all right there. What's gonna become of that boy right there. I don't know. How 'bout a hand for Dale Jett and Hello Stranger. Thank you all for comin'." Dale said, "Thank you, Marty. Appreciate it." Marty said, "You're my favorite. Dale, I read ..... a critic once wrote about The Carter Family, the original Carter Family he said that 'In the light of perfect beauty, tears are the only answer.' And it's amazing to me how much power those Carter Family songs still have almost a hundred years since they were first recorded. And one of the ones that just keeps on comin' at you is one of my very favorites.... 'Anchored In Love Divine'. Would you honor us with it today?" Dale said, "I'd be glad to. It was one of my mother's favorites as well." Marty said, "We're gonna send it to Heaven to Janette today, all right?" Dale said, "All right." Marty joined them on the song.

After a commercial break, Eddie Stubbs promoted the Superlatone Store. He introduced Marty. Marty said, "Truer words were never spoken, Eddie Stubbs. How 'bout a hand for Mr. Stubbs on that fiddle. The violin this show. Yes. If you get a chance, write us at the Grand Ole Opry. Wanna know what you're thinkin' about our show. Be happy to try to answer you back. Dale Jett, it's gonna border on the fantastic right now. Here's one you can take back to Scott County. Handsome Harry, Apostle Paul, Cousin Kenny's selection says 'You Can't Judge A Book By It's Cover'. Cous."

Marty said, "You can't judge a book by lookin' at the cover. So come back and see us next week. On behalf of Dale Jett and Hello Stranger, Leroy Troy, Gary Carter, Eddie Stubbs on the fiddle, all the Fabulous Superlatives, I'm Marty Stuart sayin' we'll see ya again next week right here on The Marty Stuart Show.
