Marty said, "Thank you for joining us here on The Marty Stuart Show. We've got some country music for you for the next half hour. Stay tuned and we'll just take care of the driving. Our first guest, now he's a triple threat anywhere you put him. He writes 'em, he sings 'em, he produces 'em. And when it's time to back it up, he puts on that fancy cowboy hat and takes care of business out on the road. How about a hand for my man, Mr. John Rich, ladies and gentlemen." John said, "Send this out to the veterans in the audience." John sang "The Good Lord And The Man." After the song, Marty said, "Tell it like it is, John Rich. Tell it like it is."

Eddie Stubbs promoted Marty's photo book Country Music: The Masters. After a commercial break, Marty and Eddie Stubbs were on stage. Marty said, "Welcome back and thank you for listening to our sponsor. Hey Superlatives, what about that John Rich over there. All right, John. Mr. Stubbs, looking dapper today, sir."

Eddie: "You're looking well too, sir."

Marty: "Well, thank you. You look like you could be an undertaker."

Eddie: "Well, actually, I've got four funeral homes that are ready to give me a job, Marty."

Marty: "Really? Well I hope you don't give up your day job coz we need you in country music. Yes we do. Hey, it's time."

Eddie: "The Rolls Royce ....."

Marty: "The Rolls Royce. I love 'em when she sings 'em, but I love 'em when she writes 'em and sings 'em. Ladies and gentlemen, here is Miss Connie Smith singing 'You've Got Me Right Where You Want Me'."

Marty said, "Oh yeah. Well, if you're gonna do it that way. That's great, Constance. Hey Cousin Kenny."

Kenny: "Hey Marty."

Marty: "What's on your mind, Cousin Kenny?"

Kenny: "Well, you know that kind of music right there? What it does to me."

Marty: "What do it do to you?"

Kenny: "I'll tell ya." Kenny sang "Country Music's Got A Hold On Me."

Marty was dancing all over the stage during the song.

Eddie promoted Connie's boxed set Born To Sing. After a commercial break, Marty said, "Well, that's the kind of stuff I'm talking about, Apostle." Marty shakes Paul Martin's hand." "Looking good Apostle. Ladies and gentlemen, here he is. You've asked for him. The Sultan of Goodlettsville, the most popular man in country music -- John Rich, you might ought to get to attention for this -- the ole Tennessee Slicker Leroy Troy. How 'bout a hand for Leroy. Welcome Leroy. You know John, Connie, Gary. I don't know what you're up to today, but you even brought the preacher with you."

Leroy: "Hey, I did. I brought Brother Gene with me."

Marty: "Well that's good."

Leroy: "I figured if I can't make it to church every Sunday morning, at least I can have Brother Gene out to see me."

Marty: "That's good. We're glad to have Brother Gene. Sing him a song."

Leroy: "All right. Let's do 'Miss Molly'."

Eddie Stubbs said, "Leroy Troy right there and 'Miss Molly'. Leroy has his minister with us here today and with that thought in mind, Sunday is going to be here before we know it and we do hope that come Sunday morning, you and yours will attend the church of your choice. Each week we always include a song of faith and inspiration. The Fabulous Superlatives Quartet are gonna gather round the microphone this week with one of the old spirituals. Handsome Harry Stinson is going to sing the high part. Here is the quartet with 'I'm Working On A Building'."

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 again. Marty said, "Thank you, Eddie Stubbs. Mr. John Rich."

John: "Thank you, sir."

Marty: "You're a busy man. Thank you for coming to see us."

John "Thank you for asking me."

Marty: "I love everything you're doing out there. Thank you for coming. I feel like fightin' down in the South land today. What do you think?"
