Join us for 30 minutes of fun and great country music. I'm your announcer Eddie Stubbs. Now how about a Superlative welcome for our host, the Hendersonville Flash. Here is Marty Stuart." Marty and The Fabulous Superlatives performed "Get Back To The Country."

Marty welcomed everyone to the show. "Thank you very much. Thank you for tuning into the Marty Stuart show. I'm Marty Stuart and we've got a great show for you this week. Mr. Josh turner is on board, Connie Smith, The Fabulous Superlatives, Gary Carter, and a host of Leroy Troys and all other kind of cool folks. Without further adieu, ladies and gentlemen, I love this boy. I love his work. How about a hand for Mr. Josh Turner." Josh performed "Long Black Train" with Jesse Stockman on fiddle and Kevin Haynie on guitar.

Eddie Stubbs promoted Marty's fantastic photo book Country Music: The Masters. After a commercial break, Marty said, "How about a hand for Miss Connie Smith, ladies and gentlemen." Connie performed "I'll Come Running."

Marty said, "Mighty pretty. Gary Carter was hot dog on that one. Constance June, I love a song that you and I both learned off Buck Owens and the Buckaroos. We got to dance to this actually at our wedding. Eddie Stubbs made us a tape so we could dance to it. A tape if you would." Connie said, "It worked." Marty continued, "It worked. We're still married. HA! How about 'Your Tender Loving Care'. Should we do it?" After the song, Marty said, "That's the truth."

Eddie Stubbs promoted the CD, Connie Smith: By Request. After a commercial break, Marty said, "Welcome back. Thank you for listening to that good word from our sponsor. Ladies and gentlemen the time has come. The Sultan from Goodlettsville is here. The most popular man in country music. The Tennessee Slicker himself, Leroy Troy. Where's Leroy? Jesse's gonna play with us."

Marty: "All right Leroy, what is the good word from Goodlettsville today?"

Leroy: "You know our ole buddy, lonesome Lester Armistead. You know he's been working on this rock wall. He's been on a tangent getting these rocks, you know. If it's bigger than a brick, he wants it. He came over and bummed a bunch of rocks out of my yard. He likes 'em limestone.

Marty: "Ain't no rock safe in Goodlettsville."

Leroy: "There is not a stray rock left in Goodlettsville. He gets out at night. Fergie said he caught him in his back yard one night about one o'clock in the morning."

Marty "Rock thief."

Leroy: "Fergie asked him what he was doing. Lester told him he couldn't sleep."

Marty: "Pick one for us. "

Leroy: "Train 45. Another train song."

Eddie Stubbs said, " Well let's settle down right now if we may and get serious with you, and we do hope that next Sunday morning that you and yours will attend the church of your choice. With that thought in mind, we'd like to declare hymn time here on the program. Here's Marty Stuart and the Fabulous Superlatives quartet. Marty's gonna pick a lot of good guitar on this." They performed "'Paul and Silas."

After a commercial break, Eddie promoted Cool Country Favorites. He said, "Speaking of 'Cool Country Favorites,' here's Marty Stuart."

Marty: "Oh you're the coolest of the coolest. Ain't he cool, Josh Turner. He's capital Cool. I heard a great story about how you got to meet Johnny Cash. It's worth hearing again. Tell me about it."

Josh: "Yeah, I was in college and drove up to his house."

Marty: "That's the way do it."

Josh: "Somehow or another, I managed to get in and he opened the door .... of all people. And so he and I stood there and talked for a few minutes. It was just one of those lifetime experiences. It was the one and only time I ever got to meet him.

Marty: "Well I'm glad you got to meet him and I'm glad he got to meet you. Let's do a Johnny Cash song. This one paid for my second car."

They performed "Folsom Prison Blues."

Marty: "On behalf of Josh Turner and the boys, Leroy Troy, the Fabulous Superlatives, Connie Smith and Eddie Stubbs, I'm Marty Stuart saying thank you for tuning in. See you next week." Then realizing he had forgotten someone, he added, " You too Gary Carter."
