Join us now for 30 minutes of fun and great country music. I'm your announcer Eddie Stubbs. Now how about a Superlative welcome for our host, here's Grand Ole Opry star, Marty Stuart." Marty and The Fabulous Superlatives performed "Paint The Town Tonight."

Marty said, "Thank you for tuning in The Marty Stuart Show. Hey Superlatives. Can't wait to get started. How 'bout a hand for the mighty Oak Ridge Boys." They performed "Y'all Come Back Saloon."

Marty said, "That's the mighty Oak Ridge Boys, that's what I'm talkin' about. Great job Oaks. Oak Ridge Boys." Eddie Stubbs said, "Oh the mighty Oak Ridge Boys. Boy they are sounding so great right there and, of course, the 'Y'all Come Back Saloon'. That's the one that got it all started for 'em years ago." Eddie promoted Marty's photo book: Country Music: The Masters. After a commercial break, Marty said, "Welcome back to The Marty Stuart Show. Glad to have you tuned in. Hey Superlatives. Look-a-here, The Oak Ridge Boys on our hay bales. We love The Oak Ridge Boys. Get it Duane. And we love this next lady. I love her, yes I do. How about a hand for the great Connie Smith, ladies and gentlemen. Oh baby." Connie sang "If I Talk To Him."

Marty said, "Connie Smith. Connie Smith." Marty continues, "There's a lot of strange men...." The camera pans to Eddie Stubbs, Kenny Vaughan and William Lee Golden. The audience laughs. Marty continues with the song, "The Wall."

Eddie said, "Great job there Marty, with 'The Wall', an old song written by Harlan Howard years ago. We'll send that out tonight to all our captive audience being hosted by their respective states." Eddie promoted Connie Smith's Born To Sing boxed set. After a commercial break, Marty said, "What about it, Apostle. Hey, Hey. Welcome back to The Marty Stuart Show, ladies and gentlemen. Thanks for tunin' in. William Lee, it's time. It's time for the Sultan of Goodlettsville, the most popular man in country music, Duane." Duane said, "Yes, it's time." Marty continued, "It's time, that's right. You heard it from the man right there. Ladies and gentlemen, how about a hand for Leroy Troy, the ole Tennessee Slicker. Leroy. Brought Joe. Brought Joe in there. Come on in a skipping, Joe. What's the good word from Goodlettsville, Leroy?"

Leroy: "I'll tell ya what, Marty. Me and Joe."

Marty: "Ole Joe."

Leroy: "We was up at ole Lester Armistead's. Right up there at his ole store. Sittin' around the wood stove."

Joe: "Pickin'."

Leroy: "Yeah, me and Joe was playin' our banjos. And we worked for several minutes on this next song we're gonna do."

Marty: "What is the title of the selection?"

Leroy: "Cindy."

Marty: "In A major. Get it boys. Tear it up, Joe."

During the song, William Lee Golden got up to do some dancing. Eddie said, "Great job there, Leroy Troy and appreciate Joe Bonsall teamin' up there with you on 'Cindy'. Leroy's got more songs about women than anybody I've ever known, I believe. Well, you know it's time we settle down and get serious with you right now. We got to thinkin' that being as The Oak Ridge Boys got their start in gospel music, we thought it would be kinda neat for them to return to their roots, if you will. So on hymn time this week, we're gonna have the Fabulous Superlative trio lead off on this and they'll be joined by The Oak Ridge Boys quartet on one of the old favorites, 'Just A Little Talk With Jesus'."

After a commercial break, Eddie Stubbs promoted The Marty Stuart Collection of five CDs, Live at the Ryman, Badlands, Compadres: An Anthology of Duets, Cool Country Favorites and Souls' Chapel. He introduced Marty. Marty said, "Thank you, Eddie Stubbs. Oak Ridge Boys, does he not look like he stepped right out of a Statesmen Quartet songbook? Lookin' good, isn't he?. Yes sir, Mr. Stubbs. And so is Mr. Fairchild back there on the keyboards. Mr. Ron Fairchild. Mr. William Lee, Oak Ridge Boys, on behalf of all the Fabulous Superlatives, we love you very much. And we appreciate you. We honor you. You guys are the best. Can we do the national anthem now? 'Elvira' by The Oak Ridge Boys. Take it Duane."

Marty said, "The mighty Oak Ridge Boys. On behalf of Marty Stuart and The Fabulous Superlatives, Connie Smith, Leroy Troy, Eddie Stubbs, Mr. Fairchild, thank you for tunin' in. We'll see you again next week on The Marty Stuart Show. Come on back."
