"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, along with all the Fabulous Superlatives: Cousin Kenny Vaughan, Handsome Harry Stinson, the Apostle Paul Martin, plus Gary Carter on steel guitar, and today's very special guest, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and a member of the Musician's Hall of Fame, Mr. Duane Eddy, along with Randy Leago. Join us now for 30 minutes of fun and great country music. I'm your announcer Eddie Stubbs. Now how about a Superlative welcome for our host, a member of the Mississippi Musicians Hall of Fame, here is Marty Stuart." Marty and The Fabulous Superlatives performed "Doin' My Time." Marty and Kenny were dancing around during the song.

Marty said, "Fabulous Superlatives, fine job. Apostle Paul, Handsome Harry, and Cousin Kenny. Well today it's all about the twang. And as the man says, 'It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that twang.' We got the King of Twang, ladies and gentlemen. How about a hand for the head Hillbilly Cat. Mr. Duane Eddy if you will. How about the 'Raunchy', brother Duane."

Marty said, "Mr. Duane Eddy. Good job, Randy." Eddie then promoted Country Music: The Masters. After a commercial break, Marty said, "Welcome back to The Marty Stuart Show. How about that Duane Eddy and ole Randy over there. Yes, sir. Twang, twang, twang. Yes, sir. Handsome Harry." Harry said, "Yes, Marty." Marty continued, "Last night I came in, you know what the note said, don't you?" Harry said, "What did the note say?" Marty said, "The Key's In The Mailbox, come on in." Harry said, "Oh yeah." Marty continues, " Here she is to sing it as Eddie Stubbs promised, how about a hand for the great Connie Smith. Come on, Constance."

Marty said, "Thank you, Connie. Great job. I left home to go traveling when I was twelve years old and the road became a way of life to me. I love it. But after I got out there, I found out there was a lot of people out there runnin' from what hurt 'em at home. I've been that soldier. This song's for anybody out there hurting tonight. It's called the 'Hobo's Prayer'."

Eddie said, "Great job, Marty, there with the 'Hobo's Prayer'. Love that fine finger pickin' there, too, on that D-45 Martin guitar." Eddie promoted The Marty Stuart Collection of five CDs, Live at the Ryman, Badlands, Compadres: An Anthology of Duets, Cool Country Favorites and Souls' Chapel. After a commercial break, Marty said, "It's time for the Sultan of Goodlettsville, the most popular man in country music. Ladies and gentlemen, here it is, the ole Tennessee Slicker, Leroy Troy. Make him feel welcome. Leroy, come in here. Hello buddy boy. You know Duane, Randy, Connie. How 'bout 'Rollin' In My Sweet Baby's Arms' then." Leroy said, "Okie dokie." Marty and Leroy were laughing so hard at times. Leroy could not sing a verse of the song.

Eddie Stubbs said, "Well, we better settle down right now and get serious. And we'd like to declare hymn time this week. Connie Smith has got a beautiful song picked out. It's been one of the most requested of her career. Connie Smith now to sing 'Clinging To A Saving Hand'."

After a commercial break, Eddie Stubbs promoted Connie Smith's Born To Sing boxed set. He introduced Marty. Marty said, "Thank you twang cat you. You a good cat, Eddie Stubbs. And thank you, Duane Eddy. On behalf of every guitar player on planet Earth and all the Fabulous Superlatives, thank you for coming. We love you and honor you, sir." Duane said, "Thank you. It's my pleasure. You've got a great show here, Marty." Marty said, "Thanks for coming by. You know the big one." But Duane wanted to add, "I've been sitting at home and watching." Marty said, "Have you?" Duane said, "Yeah." Marty said, "I've been watching you for years too." Duane continued, " Fine bunch of folks and very talented bunch and a great show." Marty said, "Thank you, Duane. We're even then. I wanna play 'Rebel Rouser'." Duane said, "You got it." Marty said, "Go ahead." Duane kicked off the song and Marty said, "That's the one."

Marty said, "Aww, thank you, Duane. Good job, Handsome. On behalf of Duane Eddy, Randy Leago, Connie Smith, Leroy Troy, the Fabulous Superlatives, Gary Carter and Eddie Stubbs, I'm Marty Stuart saying thank you for joining us. Come back and see us again next week. We'll do it all over again. All right."
