Eddie said, "That's the real deal right there from Country Music Hall of Famer, Miss Connie Smith, and 'I'm Not Over You'." Eddie promoted Marty's CD Souls' Chapel. After a commercial break, Marty said, "That's what I'm talkin' about. How 'bout a hand for Miss Connie Smith over there on the hay bale. Connie and Lester and Earl and Jimmie Rodgers, and Hag, and ole Marty. Do you know one of the most requested things we have when we go out on tour? People wanna hear Eddie Stubbs play the fiddle, Superlatives. We gotcha covered. Make welcome Eddie Stubbs and his flyin' fiddle. Hello Edwardo." Eddie said, "Can we do this one just for you?" Marty said, "I want you to." Eddie said, "It's called 'Pretty Polly Ann'." Marty said, "Come on, boy."

Marty said, "That's Eddie Stubbs and his flyin' fiddle. 'Pretty Polly Ann'. And a member of the Country Radio Hall of Fame, too. Big doin's. There he goes. Eddie Stubbs did good, didn't he?" Leroy Troy said, "He sure did." Marty continued, "He did good. I love Eddie Stubbs and I love his fiddle playin', and I love these people right here. I've said it before. Paul Martin is one of the most blessed men on planet Earth. When it's time to play music, all he has to do is call order to the house. Along with Jamie, March, and Kell -- that's just some of 'em. How 'bout a hand for The Martins. Go ahead, Apostle. Talk about your home state of Kentucky." Paul said, "My home state. This is a tune about my home state of Kentucky."
