And today's special guests, Miss Mandy Barnett along with Andy Reiss and Country Music Hall of Famer Pig Robbins. Join us now for 30 minutes of fun and great country music. I'm Eddie Stubbs. Now, how 'bout a Superlative welcome for our host. Here is Marty Stuart." Marty said, "You a good man, Eddie Stubbs. That's right." Marty and His Fabulous Superlatives performed "Whole Lotta Highway."

Marty said, "Swap with me, Apostle. Hello everybody. I'm Marty Stuart. Welcome to The Marty Stuart Show. We have country music in our hearts and on our minds this week. Before we go any further, how 'bout a nice hand for Mr Andy Reiss over here on the guitar. Since the last time we saw him, he is now a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame. Mr. Pig Robbins on the piano. Welcome, Pig. And I'd like to introduce you to one of the greatest singers on planet Earth, and she's gonna come out here and back it up, I guarantee you. A nice lady. How 'bout a hand for Miss Mandy Barnett. Hello, Mandy." Mandy performed "Trademark."

Marty said, "Aww, yes sir. Say 'Thank you'." Mandy said, "Thank you." Eddie said, "'Undeniably one of the greatest singers of our time, Miss Mandy Barnett with 'Trademark'." Eddie promoted Nashville, Volume 1: Tear The Woodpile Down. After a commercial break, Marty said, "Aww, welcome back. How 'bout a hand for Pig Robbins everybody. And how 'bout a hand for one of the greatest singers in the world, Miss Mandy Barnett. Took care of business. And here comes another great one through this door. How 'bout a hand for Miss Connie Smith, everybody. Hey Baby. Did ya hear Mandy sing?" Connie said, "I quit!" Marty continued, "Not just yet. Sing this song first, okay. Will you do 'Where Is My Castle'?" Connie said, "I'd love to, if Pig will play." Marty said, "If Pig will play. All right."

Marty said, "That's the one I've been wantin' to hear. That's the way to do it, Constance. How 'bout a hand for all The Fabulous Superlatives, Cousin Kenny, Handsome Harry, Apostle Paul. We shall now go to the Mississippi land with the 'Mississippi Railroad Blues', Handsome Harry."

After a commercial break, Marty and His Fabulous Superlatives were on stage. Marty said, "Welcome back, ladies and gentlemen. I'm proud to say that this broadcast is sponsored by the great state of Mississippi. And one of the greatest places on earth to me, Superlatives, is my hometown of Philadelphia, Mississippi. Yes. Can I tell ya where my favorite store in this world is, Handsome Harry?" Harry said, "Well, it must be Macy's up in New York City." Marty said, "Absolutely not. It is the Philadelphia Gun and Pawn Shop on Posey Avenue in Philadelphia, Mississippi. Owned by Mr. Jackie Conn. Jackie Conn carries everything from bullets to bulldozers and everything in between. Cous, he's even got guitars and mandolins. You can play music in the store, look at diamond rings, enjoy beautiful Choctaw baskets or buy a shotgun or a washing machine or a chain saw. I don't matter. They've got it all. And ... if you run low on dough, Apostle, you know what?" Paul said, "Hock-ability." Marty continued, "That's right. Apostle Paul, there's hock-ability under the right circumstances at Philadelphia Gun and Pawn. Mr. Jackie Conn now is just one of the many fine people who hail from the fair city of Philadelphia, Mississippi. It's a great place. I want you to go visit. I want you to go visit. Speakin' of great, Superlatives, here he comes. The Sultan of Goodlettsville, the ole Tennessee Slicker, how 'bout a hand for Leroy Troy. Hello Leroy."

Leroy: "Hi there."

Marty: "Hello pal. Sing me a song."

Leroy: "All right. One of ... it's from Jumpin' Bill Carlisle, 'Too Old To Cut The Mustard'. In A."

Marty: "All right."

Marty said, "Told it like it is right there. Told it like it is. Hello my boy." Eddie said, "Leroy Troy. For sure he's a man that'll never be too old to cut the mustard. Thank you, Leroy. That brings back a lot of good memories of Bill Carlisle. Right now it's hymn time, and we're going to call on The Fabulous Superlatives Quartet with one they all had a hand in writing. 'Heaven'."

After a commercial break, Eddie promoted Marty's photo book, Country Music: The Masters. Eddie said, "And now, back to Marty Stuart and our special guest, Miss Mandy Barnett." Marty said, "Aww, how 'bout a hand for Eddie Stubbs. I've said it before, you're cool as ice, Eddie Stubbs." Turning to Mandy Barnett, Marty said, "Thank you for comin' today." Mandy said, "Well thank you for havin' me." Marty continued, "And thank you for bringin' Andy Reiss. How 'bout a hand for Andy. And would you agree with me that the world is a better place because of Mr. Pig Robbins. How 'bout a hand for Pig. And the world's a better place on account of you. We love you at our house and admire your singin' so much." Mandy said, "Thank you. And thanks for havin' me." Marty said, "Any time. This door's open for you. How 'bout a hand for Miss Mandy Barnett. Dazzle us, Miss Mandy." Mandy performed "I Can't Stop Loving You."

Marty said, "That's what I'm talkin' about. That's her trademark right there. Great singin', Miss Mandy Barnett. On behalf of Mandy, Andy, Connie, Leroy, Superlatives, Gary Carter, Pig Robbins, Eddie Stubbs, I'm Marty Stuart sayin' thank you for comin' to see us. Goodnight, everybody. All right, Pig."
