Ladies and gentlemen, this show is sponsored each and every week by the great state of Mississippi. And Mississippi's regarded as the birthplace of America's music. You'll find nearly 200 historical stops along the Blues and Country Music Trails that run through the state and celebrate some of American music's most notable names. Dale Jett and Lorrie Bennett are names that are often spoken alongside that of their family, The Carter Family. The Singin' Brakeman, Jimmie Rodgers, is from Meridian, Mississippi and those names are often mixed together. And we all agree that the 1927 Bristol Sessions in which Mr. Peer discovered The Carter Family and Mr. Jimmie Rodgers marked the downbeat of the world of country music as we know it today. At those sessions, they represented the people of Appalachia and Virginia. I'm speakin' of The Carter Family. Mr. Jimmie Rodgers is known as the Father of Country Music. He represented the people of my home state in Mississippi. The outcome of all that is the world is a much better place thanks to the music of Jimmie Rodgers and The Carter Family. So on behalf of all the people of Mississippi, thank you very much and with love to The Carter Family. How 'bout a hand for my friends The Carter Family. Y'all are Carters. Yes sir. And how 'bout a hand for the gentleman representin' the state that links it all together. The ole Tennessee Slicker. A constituent that happens to be the Sultan of Goodlettsville. How 'bout a hand for Leroy Troy, everybody. Here he comes, Dale. There he is, Lorrie. Well .... hello, pal. Don't know a think about it, but somethin' tells me you might have a Carter Family song on your mind."

Leroy: "Hey man, I do."

Marty: "Well ...."

Leroy: "Here's one to fit the occasion."

Marty: "What is it called."

Leroy: "One called 'Lula Walls'."

Marty: "One of my favorites."

Leroy: "No introduction. Cold turkey, Paul."

Marty said, "Yeah." Leroy said, "Thank ya." Marty continued, "Turned ya down cold, didn't she, boy. That Lula Walls." Eddie said, "Thank you, Leroy Troy. 'Lula Walls'. Hymn time this week. Marty Stuart's gonna join our special guest Dale Jett and Hello Stranger with an old song that originated on record with the original Carter Family. Here's 'The Sea of Galilee'."

After a commercial break, Eddie promoted Nashville, Volume 1: Tear The Woodpile Down. Eddie said, "And now back to Marty Stuart." Marty said, "And back to Eddie Stubbs. Fine job, Mr. Stubbs today. Thank you, pal. Fine job to Dale Jett and Hello Stranger, Lorrie Bennett, Leroy, and Connie Smith, everybody." Marty and His Fabulous Superlatives played an instrumental.

Marty said, "Thank you very much. Cous.
