Guests: The Tennessee Mafia Jug Band, Connie Smith, Leroy Troy, The Fabulous Superlatives

Eddie Stubbs started the show by introducing the guests and The Fabulous Superlatives, including steel guitar player Gary Carter from Connie's band, The Sundowners. Marty and the band were playing "La Tingo Tango" during the introductions. Eddie introduced Marty and His Fabulous Superlatives and they went into "Country Boy Rock and Roll" which is sung by Kenny Vaughan and Marty. Kenny's hat was in Marty's face, so Marty pushed the hat up.

Marty welcomed everyone to the show. "Welcome to The Marty Stuart Show. If you're looking for country music like I said last week, you've come to the right place. Do you like country music? Huh? All right. That's all right with me. Hey Superlatives. I noticed when we got here the green pulpwood truck with the bass fiddle tied on top could only mean one thing. The Tennessee Mafia Jug Band is in town. How about a hand for the Tennessee Mafia Jug Band. Hello Leroy, Mike, Ferg, Matt Combs and there's Lester. Welcome to town boys. What's going on from the good word in Goodlettsville?"

Leroy: "Well we got Lester and Mikey and Fergie and Matthew. We're all right here."

Marty: "Well play us a pretty one. How about a hand for the Jug Band, ladies and gentlemen."

Leroy: "This is for Mikey,"

They performed the song "Tied Down." Marty and His Fabulous Superlatives were side stage watching, clapping and Marty was dancing.

Eddie Stubbs then promoted Marty's latest book of photographs, Country Music: The Masters. After a commercial break, Marty says, "I know this is my favorite Connie Smith song, Eddie Stubbs. You call her the 'Rolls Royce of country music'. I call her 'my baby'. How about a hand for the great Connie Smith, ladies and gentlemen. Connie performed "Where Is My Castle?" Marty was side stage playing the acoustic guitar.

Marty says, "I love that song. Thank you Connie Smith. This is a song Connie and I wrote that Merle Haggard and I recorded. We'll send it out to all the farmers out there. It's called "Farmer's Blues."

Eddie Stubbs promoted the album Compadres: An Anthology of Duets. After a commercial break, Marty's back ...."Les, it's all right. I'll tell them. What Lester wanted me to say to everybody is that he's proud of all the boys. So proud of them because it's their first time out of jail at the same time in a long time. How about a hand for that. Leroy, come here. What's that around your neck?" Leroy says, "It's my agitator." Marty says, "Well agitate something with that thing."

Marty and the Tennessee Mafia Jug Band performed "The Bicycle Wreck."

Eddie Stubbs declared hymn time and invited the entire cast out to perform "How Beautiful Heaven Must Be." The song ended with the camera on a picture of Jesus.

After a commercial break, Eddie Stubbs promoted the album Souls' Chapel. Marty asked for a round of applause for his guests. "Thank you for watching us here on RFD-TV. If you enjoy the show, write me in care of the Grand Ole Opry. We'll be happy to write you back and give you a call or talk with you, or come over to the house for a piece of chicken. It don't matter. We're gonna play the famous song now to go home with called 'Rawhide'." Leroy Troy and Connie Smith danced a little jig.
