Lorrie said, "I thought so." Marty said, "And I tell ya what ...... the song 'Ring Of Fire'." Lorrie said, "Hmm hmm." Marty said, "And everybody in this world knows. What they might not know is that your mama had that song first after June and Merle Kilgore wrote it. Right?" Lorrie said, "Absolutely. She did." Marty said, "And, uh, her version somehow has kinda got put off to the side because of the other .... John's hit was so big. But not long ago, I rediscovered Anita's version, and I rediscovered that there's only one person in this world that can sing it like her mama. Would you please sing the original version of the 'Ring Of Fire' for us." Lorrie said, "I will try." Marty said, "Miss Lorrie Bennett, ladies and gentlemen." Lorrie said, "Thank you."

"Connie said, "Great job. She sure did." Marty said, taking Connie's hand, "Well, here we go again. As always, I'm proud to tell ya about the sponsor of The Marty Stuart Show, which is the great people in my home state, Mississippi. Now I don't know about you, but when I travel to a town, I love learnin' about its history. Nowhere better to do that than at a local museum. I encourage you to visit my hometown of Philadelphia, Mississippi. And when you do, there's a stop you might want to make, and that's the Neshoba County Museum. Constance, it's a laid-back place with some mighty friendly folks that'll make ya feel welcome while you enjoy lookin' at some of Philadelphia, Mississippi's treasures. And they happen to have an exhibit there entitled 'Mississippi Boy', And you can see my first guitar and you really ought to see my report cards then you'll understand why I had to turn to a guitar. You'll also see some photos and treasures from a night a pretty country singer came to my hometown to sing when I was twelve years old. I fell in love with her and the rest is history as they.say at the Neshoba County Museum in Philadelphia. How 'bout a hand for all my folks in Philadelphia. All right. Oh yeah. Now speakin' of history, here's a great American that knows all about it. Whatcha got with ya, Sultan? How 'bout a hand for Leroy Troy and his buddy."

Leroy: "All right. Little buddy."

Marty: "Who ya got, Leroy?"

Leroy: "Got my little boy, Cash Williams here."

Marty: "Well hello, Cash Williams." Welcome.

Leroy: "Look at him. We named him after Johnny Cash and Hank Williams"

Marty: "You did?"

Leroy: "We sure did."

Marty: "Cash Williams."

Leroy: "Yeah, sometimes we just call him C.W. for short."

Marty: "As for ....."

Leroy: "C.W. stands for country and western."

Marty: "Give me five, Cash Williams. All right. Whatcha all got picked out for us?"

Leroy: "Aww, we got one of the classics."

Marty: "Uh oh."

Leroy: "Uncle Eef's Got The Coon."

Marty: "Oh yeah."

Leroy: "Ready Cash?"

Cash really enjoyed playing the tambourine and singing along.

Marty said, "A fine job." Leroy said, "You were all right, little buddy." Marty said, "You did good, pal," patting Cash on the leg. Marty shook Leroy's hand saying, "You did, too, pal. Yes." Eddie Stubbs said, "Leroy Troy right there and 'Uncle Eef's Got The Coon'. Well, it's hymn time this week. Marty Stuart and The Fabulous Superlatives will be joined by Lorrie Bennett on this one.
