Marty said, "You have recorded how many Dallas Frazier songs?" Connie said, "This was my 69th." Marty said, "Sixty-ninth Dallas Frazier song. No wonder we got a card from him last Christmas. All right. What's it called?" Connie said, "It's called 'What's A Heart Like You Doin' In A Fool Like Me'." Marty said, "That's great."

Marty said, " 'What's A Heart Like You Doin' In A Fool Like Me'. Miss Connie Smith, everybody. That was a good job, Connie Smith. How 'bout a hand for Connie and look at Miss Beth over there in her butterflies. Hi Beth. You know what it seems to me like.

Handsome, you come up here and sing. How 'bout a hand for Handsome Harry, ladies and gentlemen." Marty hands Harry a guitar and says, "Try that one. Yes sir. You got a pick?" Harry said, "I got one, somewhere in here. Let's see." Marty said, "All right. What's the name of your song?" Harry said, "It's called 'That's What Your Love Feels Like'."

Marty said, "Handsome Harry." Eddie said, "Handsome Harry Stinson there and 'That's What Your Love Feels Like'. Thank you, Harry." Eddie promoted Connie's CD boxed set Just For What I Am." After a commercial break, Marty said, "Welcome back. Superlatives ... we're in tall cotton today, dontcha think? Ladies and gentlemen. Good people of the modern world. I'm honored to tell ya that The Marty Stuart Show is sponsored by the great state of Mississippi. Mississippi's known all around the world, Cousy poo, as the birthplace of America's music." Handsome Harry said, "That's right." Marty continued, "That's right. You'll find nearly 200 historical stops along the Blues and Country Music Trails that run throughout the Magnolia state and celebrate the greats in those genres. One group of pioneer country icons in the American history books that I encourage you to look into, Superlatives, our friends, The Leake County Revelers." Harry said, "The Leake County Revelers." Marty said, "Yes. There's a Country Music Trail marker located in Sepastopol, Mississippi that pays honor to this fine southern string band. And, Superlatives, most of all of our old-time music-playin' buddies would tell ya, that the Leake County Revelers had good news to spread, Handsome, wherever they traveled." Handsome Harry and Cousin Kenny said, "They sure did, they sure did." Marty continued, "Now, just a short ride up Highway 16 from Sepastopol is the fair city of Philadelphia, Mississippi." Handome Harry said, "Oh yeah." Marty said, "My hometown." Handsome Harry said, "Yes, sir." Marty said, "That's right. Where do you think the Leake County Revelers bought their overalls, John B. Stetson hats, fiddle rosin and chewin' tobacco?" Handsome Harry said, "Well......" Marty said, "Well, I'll tell ya, Handsome Harry. They did their business at Williams Brothers Groceries in Philadelphia, Mississippi." Handsome Harry said, "Of course they did." Marty continued, "Yes they did. Williams Brothers has been in business since 1907." Handsome Harry said, "Whoa." Marty said, "It's a famous country store and I'm tellin' ya, it's a must see. And like I've said before, if ole Sid Williams don't have it, you probably don't need it. So how 'bout a hand for dear ole Mississippi, the Music Trail Markers, and the Leake County Revelers." Handsome Harry said, "And Sid." Marty said, "From all the good people in Philadelphia, Mississippi. Speakin' of good people. Ladies and gentlemen, here he is. One of the finest. The Sultan of Goodlettsville, the most popular man in country music, the ole Tennessee Slicker ...... Leroy Troy. Come here, Leroy. Hello Rick Wright. You know Rick and Connie right there."
