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, one of Mississippi's finest. Here is Marty Stuart." Marty and His Fabulous Superlatives performed "Tennessee."

Marty said, "Welcome to The Marty Stuart Show. Fabulous Superlatives had it comin' right down the line with that old song called 'Tennessee'. We got it all right here. Song about Tennessee sponsored by the state of Mississippi. And the prettiest girl in Kentucky. How 'bout a hand for the coal miner's daughter. Big doin's boys. Here is Loretta Lynn. Come here, Lo." Loretta performed "Coal Miner's Daughter."

Marty said, "Loretta Lynn, ladies and gentlemen." After a commercial break, Marty said, "Welcome back, everybody. Hey Superlatives. Looka here. Precious, precious, precious. An American icon. Miss Loretta. Love you, Loretta." Loretta said "I love you, too." Marty continued, "Here's somebody else I love comin' through that red door. Love her with all my heart, Lo. Here she comes, the great Connie Smith. Come here Constance June." Connie sang "Run Away Little Tears."

Marty said, "Hey, look over here. Representin' Butcher Hollow, Kentucky and Spook Hollow, West Virginia. How 'bout that for country music doll babies. All right, Cous." Marty and The Fabulous Superlatives performed "Count Me Out."

Marty said, "Oh yes." Eddie promoted Marty's book of photographs, Country Music: The Masters. After a commercial break, Marty said, "Oh yeah. Welcome back to The Marty Stuart Show, ladies and gentlemen. I'm proud to say that Mississippi is the sponsor of this show. And Mississippi is known as the birthplace of America's music. It's an impressive list of country, gospel, blues, rock & roll, jazz and classical music legends that come from Mississippi. At present, there are Blues and Country Music Trail Markers that run throughout the state. These trail markers commemorate the people who created the music as well as some geographical sites that contribute to America's musical legacy. Philadelphia, Mississippi is the home of two such markers with one soon to be added. You'll find bluesman Otis Rush's marker at the Train Depot and Visitor's Center and I'm honored that Country Music Trail Marker #2 has my name on it. You'll find it on the City Square. Philadelphia's third marker soon to be unveiled honoring the great country producer and songwriter, Mr. Bob Ferguson. It will be a sight to behold. So be sure and visit Philadelphia, Mississippi and check out the trail markers. And, Loretta, speakin' of sights to behold, here comes a nice one. You might need him down there in Hurricane Mills. He's the Sultan of Goodlettsville, the most popular man in country music, the ole Tennessee Slicker. How 'bout a hand for Leroy Troy. Come here, Leroy. Well, there's Loretta and Connie. That's right. He put the 'Good' in Goodlettsville. Hello pal."

Leroy: "Howdy."

Marty: "You got a couple of legends sittin' over to your left."

Leroy: "Yeah."

Marty: "I know you got a romantic song picked out."

Leroy: "Oh yeay, I tell ya what."

Marty: "What is it."

Leroy: "I don't care if you're drivin' through Possum Hollow...."

Marty: "Yeah."

Leroy: "Or Butcher Hollow."

Marty: "Yeah."

Leroy: "Or Bristol, Tennessee. I don't care. This will eventually happen to everybody."

Marty: "Well."

Leroy: "It's one called 'Five Pounds Of Possum' and I'll send it out to all you road kill enthusiasts."

Marty is cracking up laughing.

Marty said, "Hard to beat that. Hard to beat that, pal. Get it." Eddie said, "Leroy Troy right there and 'Five Pounds Of Possum'. Imagine such a thing. Only on The Marty Stuart Show will you hear something like that. Well, it's hymn time this week. We're going to ask The Superlatives to gang around and join Miss Loretta Lynn on one of her songs, 'Everybody Wants To Go To Heaven'."

After a commercial break, Eddie Stubbs promoted Compadires: An Anthology Of Duets at the Superlatone Store. Eddie said, "Once again, here's Marty Stuart." Marty said, "Thank you, Eddie Stubbs. How 'bout a hand for Eddie Stubbs, everybody. Didn't he do a fine job." Connie said, "Ain't he pretty." Marty continued, "Hey, Connie Smith." Connie said, "Yes." Marty said, "Who's your favorite girl singer of all time?" Connie said, "Well, everybody knows it's Loretta Lynn." Marty said, "How 'bout that. I love that. Come here. I wanna tell you somethin'." Loretta said, "Okay." Marty said, "Last week, George Jones was on the show and she said that George Jones was her favorite singer of all time. If she don't straighten up ..." Connie interjected, "Male singer." Marty continued, "Can I come to your house?" Loretta said, "Yeah, honey." Marty said, "All right. That's the way it is right there. Ya'll heard it right here." Loretta laughed and said, "Oh me." Marty said, "I love every song you've ever done and that's the truth. I love every Loretta Lynn song. But there's one in particular that touches my heart mighty deep. Would you please do 'Blue Kentucky Girl' for us." Loretta said, "That's one of my favorite, too." Marty said, "All right. We'll have ole Mark Casstevens take it off here. Markus......"

Marty said, "Miss Loretta Lynn, everybody. That's my girl. Thank you so much. On behalf of Loretta Lynn, Connie Smith, Leroy Troy, The Fabulous Superlatives, Gary Carter, Mark Casstevens and Eddie Stubbs, I'm Marty Stuart sayin' 'thank you for joinin' us.' We'll see ya again next week right here on The Marty Stuart Show. I love you." Marty kisses Loretta.
