"From Nashville, Tennessee, the country music capital of the world and home of the air castle of the south, it's time for The Marty Stuart Show, featuring Marty Stuart, the Rolls Royce of country singers Miss Connie Smith, the ole Tennessee Slicker Leroy Troy, with all the Fabulous Superlatives: Cousin Kenny Vaughan, Handsome Harry Stinson, the Apostle Paul Martin, plus Gary Carter on the steel guitar, and today's very special guest, Miss Gretchen Wilson along with Mark and Cherie Oakley. 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 only man who's had sixteen miles of dirt road named after him in Arlington, Mississippi. Here is Marty Stuart." Marty said, "Awww Eddie Stubbs. Holler at me Handsome. That's right." Marty and The Fabulous Superlatives performed "A Satisfied Mind."

Marty said, "Thank you very much. You just joining us, I'm Marty Stuart. You're watching The Marty Stuart Show and if you like country music, just like last Saturday, you've come to the right place. Our first guest tonight, the first time I heard her come across my radio speakers I knew country music had a keeper for a long, long time. I'm a mighty big fan of hers. Would you please make welcome, Miss Gretchen Wilson. How about a hand for Gretchen. Welcome Miss Gretchen, so glad you're here ma'am." Gretchen sang "I Don't Feel Like Loving You Tonight."

Marty said, "That's good music, Gretchen." Eddie Stubbs said, "Wow, that's some great country singing there, Gretchen Wilson. Thank you, Gretchen. She'll be back with us in just a few minutes." . Eddie then promoted Marty's photo book Country Music: The Masters. After a commercial break, Marty said, "Superlatives how about a hand for Miss Gretchen and Mark and Cherie. We are lucky folks. We got pretty girls coming by to sing us country music, Apostle. Keep it coming. How about a hand for Miss Connie Smith, ladies and gentlemen. Come on baby." Connie sang "How Long."

Marty said, "Great job, Miss Connie Smith. We played a show not too long ago in Billings, Montana. The day after the concert, a friend of mine took me out to the battlefield where George Custer met his doom. Here's 'Trip to Little Big Horn.' And every stop at Big Horn, another verse of the song kept coming.

Eddie promoted Connie's boxed set Born To Sing. After a commercial break, Marty said, "Yes, sir. Well just when you thought it couldn't get any better. Mark, hold the girls back. Here he comes. The Sultan of Goodlettsville, the most popular man in country music, ladies and gentlemen, the ole Tennessee Slicker. How about a hand for Leroy Troy. Where is my Leroy? Hey Leroy. Come on in Leroy. You know all the folks. What's the good word from Goodlettsville, Leroy?"

Leroy: "Oh Marty boy. Daddy has brought us a big bag of his homemade groundhog cakes that you love so well.

Marty: "You gonna save me one?"

Leroy: "There back there in the 'fridgerator."

Marty: "Can't wait to get started. Whatcha got in mind?"

Leroy: "The High Born Lady."

Marty: "Yes."

Leroy: "Paul, are you ready for me?"

Paul: "I don't know."

Marty said, "That took care of business. A fine performance." Eddie Stubbs said, " 'My Gal Is a High Born Lady'. Leroy, she sounds like a real dilly right there. You need to bring her by the show sometime. Well we better settle down right now. You know Sunday morning will be here before you know it and we do hope that come Sunday that you and yours will attend the church of your choice. We always get a lot of calls for the songs of inspiration and we've got a beautiful one picked out for you this week on the show. We're gonna let our steel guitar player Gary Carter shine on this one. One of the old traditional favorites .... 'In The Garden'. "

After a commercial break, Eddie Stubbs promoted the "Superlatone Collection" of five CDs, Live at the Ryman, Badlands, Compadres: An Anthology of Duets, Cool Country Favorites and Souls' Chapel. He introduced Marty and Connie. Marty said, "Thank you, Mr. Stubbs. Fine job, by the way. And Miss Gretchen.....thank you for bringing Mark and Cherie. Mighty fine. And we just want to tell you at our house, we're big Gretchen Wilson fans."

Gretchen: "Thank you."

Marty: "We really are. And on behalf of all ......... "

Connie is standing there and interrupts, "You're the best we got."

Marty: "That's right." Connie realizes she should not have interrupted.

Connie: "I'm sorry."

Marty: "That's quite all right."

Connie: "I was just too excited."

Marty: "On behalf of all The Superlatives, thanks for coming by. "

Gretchen: "Thank you."

Marty: "Sing us another one."

Gretchen: "All righty."

Marty: "You ole homewrecker." Gretchen sang "Homewrecker."

Marty: "Thank you, Gretchen Wilson. Wonderful job. I'm Marty Stuart. On behalf of Gretchen Wilson, Mark and Cherie, Leroy, Gary Carter, The Fabulous Superlatives, and Eddie Stubbs, I'm saying thank you for joining us. We'll see you again next week. Come on back to The Marty Stuart Show."
