Join us now for 30 minutes of fun and great country music. I'm Eddie Stubbs. Now how about a Superlative welcome for our host, one of Philadelphia, Mississippi's favorite sons. Here is Marty Stuart." Marty and The Fabulous Superlatives performed "Brown Eyed Handsome Man."

Marty said, "I'm Marty Stuart and I wanna welcome you to The Marty Stuart Show. Superlatives?. The Superlatives said, "What?" Marty continued, "Got ole Kendal and Justin over here. Could only mean one thing. The boss man's here. He's cuttin' a hole through the sky right now. Tearin' it up for country music. How 'bout a hand for my friend and yours. Mr. Brad Paisley. Come here Brad man. Hello Brad." Brad said, "Hey Marty." Marty said, "Welcome, pal. Welcome. Make yourself at home." Brad said, "Let's go fishin'." Brad performed "Catch All The Fish."

Marty said, "That's the way you did it. Mr. Brad Paisley and the boys." After a commercial break, Marty said, "Welcome back, everybody. Hey look over here, Superlatives. Justin, Kendal and ole Brad Paisley. Hard workin' boys. Proud of you guys. They're doin' so good for country music right now. Speakin' of country music, here's one of the reasons I fell in love with country music. Singin' her famous RCA Victor recording, how 'bout a hand for the great Connie Smith. Come here, Constance June. Hi baby." Connie sang "Once A Day."

Marty performed "Promised Land."

Eddie promoted Marty's book of photographs, Country Music: The Masters. After a commercial break, Marty, Paul and Harry were on stage. Marty said, "Welcome back, ladies and gentlemen. Whataya think, Brad. Well all right. Superlatives?" Paul and Harry answered, "Yes." Marty continued, "Always good news to tell ya that The Marty Stuart Show is sponsored by the good people of the great state of Mississippi. Now, Handsome Harry." Harry said, "Yes." Marty went on, "195 miles due north of the romantic river town of Natchez, Mississippi, is a town that's near and dear to my heart. Hometown, Philadelphia, Mississippi. And just outside of Philadelphia is the Pearl River Resort. Visitors come from all over to visit the Silver Star Casino, eat good food, play golf at the Dancing Rabbit Golf Course, and attend concerts like Brad Paisley at the Golden Moon Event Center. Pearl River Resort is part of the Choctaw Reservation surrounded by majestic pine trees, azaleas, with lots of friendly people that'll make ya feel welcome. You can relax and do nothin' at Pearl River or hit the bright lights and stay up for a week. It's your call. But just in case you do stay up for a week and the slot machine accidentally takes all your money, go see my friend Jackie Chan over at Philadelphia Gun and Pawn. He'll work out somethin' for ya to getcha home, I'm sure. He's a good man. Give him a hand in Philadelphia. That's right. Speakin' of good fellas, here he comes, Brad. The Sultan of Goodlettsville, the ole Tennessee Slicker, how 'bout a hand for Leroy Troy. Come here, Leroy. Look here. Superlatives, Connie, Brad and the boys. Well."

Leroy: "Well."

Marty: "What's on your mind, pal?"

Leroy: "Well, I got Harry with us today. Handsome Harry. We are all dressed up and we are going to town."

Marty: "Well, tell more about it."

Leroy: "One called 'Country Music's Gone To Town'."

Marty: "All right."

Marty said, "Almost nailed it." Eddie Stubbs said, "Leroy Troy right there and 'Country Music's Gone To Town'. Well, whether you're from out in the country or from the city, the songs of inspiration are some of the most requested that we do here on this show. Marty Stuart wrote a brand new one. As a matter of fact, it makes its debut on this particular performance. And he had in mind Lorrie Bennett, the daughter of Anita Carter and the granddaughter of Mother Maybelle Carter, to sing the high harmony on this. She's gonna join Handsome Harry and the Apostle Paul. Marty's gonna lead this one. 'His Love Will Lead Us On'."

After a commercial break, Eddie Stubbs promoted the Marty Stuart Tribute Revolver. Eddie said, "And once again, here is Marty Stuart." Marty said, "Thank you, Eddie Stubbs. How 'bout a hand for Eddie Stubbs. What do ya think about him, Brad?" Brad said, "I think he's the best in the world." Marty said, "Me too. And I think you're great." Brad said, "You too." Marty continued, "You're makin' a lot of people happy out there right now." Brad said, "Well, I hope so." Marty said, "You are." Brad said, "That's the goal." Marty said, "And I tell ya what. You're doin' a great job for country music. Thank you very much." Brad said, "Thanks for sayin' that. So are you." Marty said, "And look-a-here. You got 'em out of jail just to bring 'em." Brad said, "I know. Look at those guys." Marty said, "Kendal and Justin." Brad said, "And thank you for puttin' this show on the air. What a great thing." Marty said, "Well, thank you for comin' by to do it. That's what keeps it goin'. Sing a big hit, would ya?" Brad said, "I'll try." Marty said, "Whatcha got? Mr. Brad Paisley, ladies and gentlemen." Brad sang "Anything Like Me."

Marty said, "Mr. Brad Paisley, ladies and gentlemen. Great job. Good song, Brad man. Cous. On behalf of Brad Paisley, Kendal, Justin, Connie. Lorrie, Leroy, The Superlatives, Eddie, and Gary, I'm Marty Stuart sayin' thank you for joinin' us. We'll see ya again .... hi baby ... next week right here on The Marty Stuart Show."
