Now, how 'bout a Superlative welcome for our host. Here is Marty Stuart." Marty and His Fabulous Superlatives performed "Johnny Reb."

Marty said, "I'm Marty Stuart. Thank ya for comin' to see us here at The Marty Stuart Show. Superlatives? I just don't know, do you? Handsome Harry said, "I have no idea." Marty said, "I don't know either. It's big. The only thing I can tell ya is here they come. Handsome Harry." Harry said "Yes." Marty continued, "The big pulpwood truck was not in the parking lot this mornin'." Harry said, "Really." Marty said, "Saw the jail house bus." Harry said, "Oh, no." Marty said, "Must mean one thing. It's The Tennessee Mafia Jug Band. Here they come." The band comes on stage and Marty walks over to them. He says, "All right sir. Leroy. Mikey, Ernest, Lester, Mike Webb, and Dan Kelly. Hello Jug Band." The band said, "Hey Marty." Marty said, "Lester." Lester said, "Yes sir." Marty continued, "Come up here. Can't help but notice you brought a friend along today." Lester said, "I would call him a friend. Yes." Marty said, "What's the story?" Lester said, "Well, we got a little sidetracked down in Springhill, Louisiana." Marty said, "Oh, so this is a supervised visit." Lester said, "You might call it that." Marty said, "Well all right. How 'bout a hand for all the Jug Band. Looks like you oughta be on your best behavior today. Go ahead." The Tennessee Mafia Jug Band performed "Katie Daley."

Marty said, "That's The Tennessee Mafia Jug Band. On their best behavior. They did pretty good, Officer." Officer H. D. Ainsworth gave a thumbs up. Eddie said, "We're so glad The Tennessee Mafia Jug Band was able to get out for a few hours on work release to be with us today, and it was great to hear them do 'Katie Daley'. Thank you fellas." Eddie promoted Connie's CD boxed set Just For What I Am. After a commercial break, Marty said, "Hey, hey. Welcome back, everybody. Cous. Comin' to us courtesy of the Springhill, Louisiana jail, how 'bout a hand for The Tennessee Mafia Jug Band and the good heart of Officer H. D. Ainsworth. Nice shoes there, Mike Webb. Good good with stripes. Thank you. You know what Jerry Lee Lewis said. 'He's walkin' in my tracks, but he can't fill my shoes. Keep that in mind. And keep this in mind. We sure do need some beauty on this stage right now, don't you think? Here she comes. How 'bout a hand for the great Connie Smith. Don't look over there too long. It'll blind you. It's like lookin' at the sun. Hey Cous." Connie sang "If I'd Left It Up To You."

Marty said, "Send that back to California to that fella named Haggard." Marty walked over to The Tennessee Mafia Jug Band. He said, "Connie did good, didn't she? Yes sir. " Some one from the band said, "Made Mikey cried." Marty said, "Yeah, Mikey cried. That's right. Officer, so far so good with the boys?" Officer Ainsworth said, "All is well." Marty said, "All is well. Well, this will take it right in the other direction. There is absolutely no explanation for this song. Dan Kelly." They performed a song Marty wrote called "Visine."

Marty said, "Oh yeah." After a commercial break, Marty said, "Glad ya could join us again. Thank you very much. Leroy." Leroy said, "Yeah." Marty continued, "We have a special guest with The Tennessee Mafia Jug Band." Leroy said, "We sure do. An ole Goodlettsville, Tennessee boy." Marty said, "That's right. We're talkin' country music royalty." Leroy said, "That's right." Marty continued, "Grandpa and Ramona's little boy, Mark Jones. Hello Mark Jones." Mark said, "Hello Marty." Marty said, "Play the family anthem, would you?" Mark said, "All right." Marty said, "Kick it off, son." Mark said, "I will." They performed "Mountain Dew."

Eddie said, "An enduring old-time classic there. 'Mountain Dew' with Leroy Troy,The Tennessee Mafia Jug Band, and Mark Jones. We do hope that next Sunday, you and yours will make the time to attend the church of your choice. Here's a song now that Marty Stuart and Handsome Harry Stinson wrote which is included in the Souls' Chapel gospel album the group did. We call on the quartet now to sing 'There's A Rainbow At The End Of Every Storm'."

After a commercial break, Eddie promoted Leroy Troy's CD, The Old Grey Mare. Eddie said, "And now, let's get back to our host, Marty Stuart, along with Cousin Kenny, all The Superlatives, and Officer Ainsworth." Marty said, "And how 'bout a hand for our man, Eddie Stubbs. Did good. Officer Ainsworth." Officer Ainsworth said, "Yes sir." Marty continued, "Thank you for comin' to us." Officer Ainsworth said, "Thank you." Marty said, "All the way, bringin' the boys from Springhill, Louisiana. And we have a nice announcement to make. Superlatives? We've been negotiatin' with all the folks down in Springhill, Louisiana, and the officer is going to go as light on the boys over here as he can; and at the end of it, he's gonna go out on the road and be their road manager. How 'bout that. The boys' wives and mama will be proud. Thank you, Officer Ainsworth." Officer Ainsworth said, "Thank you, sir." Marty said, "How 'bout a hand for Officer H. D. Ainsworth. Cous?" Kenny said, "Yeah." Marty said, "I don't know of a song that could fit the occasion any better than 'You Can't Judge A Book By Looking At The Cover'. Here's Cous."

Marty said, "Cousin Kenny told it like it was. Yes, yes, yes. You can't judge a book by lookin' at the cover. Thank you for comin' to see us tonight.
