Now how 'bout a Superlative welcome for our host, the Neshoba County nobleman himself, here is Marty Stuart." Marty and His Fabulous Superlatives performed "The Good Things Outweighs The Bad."

Marty said, "Welcome to The Marty Stuart Show. We're so glad to have you with us. The good things outweigh the bad, Superlatives. It's the truth, it's the truth, it's the truth. Tell ya what else is the truth. We have the first family of the Grand Ole Opry here with us today. Buck, Sharon and Cheryl. How 'bout a hand for my friends, The Whites, ladies and gentlemen." Marty shakes hands with Buck White. "Hello, sir." Buck says, "Good to be here." Marty says, "We got you a piano. Hello sister Sharon. Hello toothpick. Take it away, girls." The Whites performed "Hanging' Around."

Marty said, "Yes, sir." Eddie Stubbs said, "Great job right there from The Whites. One of their big hit songs, 'Hangin' Around'." Eddie promoted the two DVD set of highlights from the first season of The Marty Stuart Show. After a commercial break, Marty said, "Superlatives, look over here. The first family on the hay bales. How 'bout a hand for The Whites. Buck, Cheryl, and Sharon. Here comes my sweetheart, my baby. One of the greatest of all time. How 'bout a hand for Miss Connie Smith, everybody. Lookin' mighty pretty, Constance." Connie performed "You've Got Me (Right Where You Want Me)."

Marty said, "Hey, brother Buck......" and motioned for him to come over. "Slide over here. Aw yeah. Come on Buck, come on Buck. Ease into the 88. Good to have you with us, sir." Buck said, "Back up to the piano." Marty said, "Yes, sir." Buck said, "And don't let it know I'm comin'." Marty said, "That's right. Sneak up on it. Thank you and The Whites for comin' by today." Buck said, "It's a real pleasure. We've been watchin' you and lovin' ya." Marty said, "I've been watchin' you, too and I love you, too. Hey. You know somethin' this show's never had. It's never had a down home, Texas blues number on the piano. And you're just the man that would take care of that." Buck said, "Aw, Mr. Moon did it." Marty said, "Mr. Moon Mullican but today it's Mr. Buck White and the 'Pipeliner Blues'. How 'bout a hand for Mr. Buck White. It's all yours, Buck."

Marty said, "Pipeliner Blues." Eddie said, "With a tip of the hat to the stylings of Moon Mullican That was The Fabulous Superlatives there accompanying Buck White and the 'Pipeliner Blues' for your viewing and dining enjoyment. It's kinda got that supper club feel to it. That is so great. Eddie promoted Marty's book of photographs, Country Music: The Masters. After a commercial break, Marty said, "You'll notice around our set, we have markers from the state of Mississippi, my home state and the official sponsor of our show. Here's a Mississippi fact for ya. Did you know that President Theodore Roosevelt visited Mississippi in 1902 to go on a hunting expedition near the town of Onward. Well, the story goes that a skinny ole bear presented himself to Mr. Roosevelt and he, being a great sportsman, refused to shoot it. News of that good deed spread quickly. A New York merchant capitalized on it by creating a stuffed toy bear and namin' it Teddy's Bear. Aww. And the rest is history. And the Onward Store still sells the Teddy Bear which happens to be the official state toy of the Magnolia state. How 'bout that for ole Teddy Roosevelt. Speakin' of the official state toy, here's the official toy of The Marty Stuart Show, the most popular man in country music, the ole Tennessee Slicker. Ladies and gentlemen, the Sultan of Goodlettsville. How 'bout a hand for Leroy Troy. Come here, Leroy."

Marty: "Whatcha got on your mind brother. All right."

Leroy: "Man, I tell ya what. I got a good ole Mississippi riverboat number picked out for you. "

Marty: "What's the title of the selection?"

Leroy: "Waiting On The Robert E. Lee."

Marty: "A precious song."

Leroy: "And Mr. Eddie Stubbs is gonna kick it off on the ole steamboat whistle. All right."

Eddie blew the steamboat whistle.

Marty: "Let 'er go boys, let 'er go."

Marty said, "Yeah. Made it safely back to shore." Eddie Stubbs said, "Great job right there from Leroy Troy and 'Waiting On The Robert E. Lee'. Well, you know Sunday morning is gonna be here before we all know it and we do hope that you'll make the time to attend the church of your choice. And to get us in the mood with our inspirational offering this week, we call on Connie Smith, Cheryl and Sharon White and a song that they've never performed before publicly until right now. Let's listen together and enjoy 'Nothing But The Blood Of Jesus'."

After a commercial break, Eddie Stubbs promoted the Superlatone Store. Eddie said, "And speaking of keepsakes, we've got a set full of 'em today and here to speak on everybody's behalf is Marty Stuart." Marty said, "Thank you, Mr. Stubbs. Thank you very much. Comin' from a cowboy who's never seen a horse in person, I think that's a good thing. He's a Texas gentlemen today...." Sharon said, "He's lookin' fine." Marty continued, "And honoring The Whites. That's what he's doin'. So are you guys. Thank you for comin' by. Thank you for comin' by. You truly are the first family of the Grand Ole Opry." Sharon said, "So glad to be here." Marty continued, "I said first family of the Grand Ole Opry, I know it." Turning to Cheryl White, Marty said, "Hey, I've known you a long time and you've got a new play purdy right there." Cheryl said, "I do, I do." Marty said, "Whatcha got." Cheryl said, "I've got the John Duckett bass. My daddy's dear old friend John Duckett left me this bass a few years ago. And finally got it fixed up. I wanted to play it on your show." Marty said, "Makin' it's debut." Cheryl said, "Yes, I wanted to play it so Marcy and his brother Wallace could see it." Marty said, "Wonderful. It's a big wheel. How 'bout the big wheel. The Whites, ladies and gentlemen." They performed "There's A Big Wheel."

Marty said, "That's the truth. On behalf of The Whites, Connie Smith, Leroy Troy, Eddie Stubbs, Gary Carter, and all The Superlatives. I'm Marty Stuart sayin' thank you for comin'. See us here at The Marty Stuart Show. Come back, we'll do it again next week. Good night everybody. Aww look out."
