Eddie Stubbs started the show by introducing the guests. "From Nashville, Tennessee, the country music capital of the world and home of the air castle of the south, it's time for The Marty Stuart Show, featuring Marty Stuart, the Rolls Royce of country singers Miss Connie Smith, the ole Tennessee Slicker Leroy Troy, along with all the Fabulous Superlatives: Cousin Kenny Vaughan, Handsome Harry Stinson, the Apostle Paul Martin, plus Gary Carter on the steel guitar, and today's special guest, Country Music Hall of Famer, Miss Dolly Parton. Join us now for 30 minutes of fun and great country music. I'm Eddie Stubbs. Now how 'bout a Superlative welcome for our host, Mississippi's high priest of pulp wood. Here is Marty Stuart." Marty and His Fabulous Superlatives performed "Tear The Wood Pile Down."

Marty said, "Yes sir. Tore that wood pile completely down. A profound song. Welcome to The Marty Stuart Show. I'm Marty Stuart. Aww, we got some great country music for ya for the next 30 minutes right here on RFD-TV. Here she comes, boys. I tell ya what. She's called herself the Smoky Mountain Nightingale. Representing East Tennessee. How 'bout a hand for our friend, the great Dolly Parton. Where are ya, Dolly, Dolly. Hey. Awww." Dolly said, "Hello Marty. How are you." Marty said, "It's all yours." Dolly said, "Thank you so much for having me. Well, look a there. They're standin' up. Sit down.I ain't that special. But I do have my Coat of Many Colors guitar for ya today. This is in honor of all your rhinestones. And I just wanna tell ya how happy I am to be part of this show. It just takes me back in time. And here's a little song that takes me back even farther to my childhood. It's a true story. And I always think of my own mama when I sing this song, so I always like to dedicate it to all the good mamas listenin'." Dolly sang "Coat Of Many Colors."

Marty said, "Just like that. Atta girl." Dolly said, "Thank you, thank you." Eddie said, "Great job right there. An autobiographical song from Miss Dolly Parton there that she wrote. 'Coat Of Many Colors'. Accompanying herself on a guitar of many colors. Great job, Dolly." Eddie promoted the two DVD set of highlights from the first season of The Marty Stuart Show. After a commercial break, Marty said, "Welcome back ladies and gentlemen. Hey Superlatives. Look over here. Global icon on the set. Prettyin' up the set. Miss Dolly. yes sir. Speakin' of icons and prettyin' up the set, here she comes right now. More, more, more. Right through the door comes the great Connie Smith. Come here Constance. Hey baby. Yeah. Hi baby." Connie performed "Hinges On The Door."

Marty said, "That was great, Constance. Oh look now. Look now. Talk about a hen house. I don't know about you two. I don't know about that. I tell ya. We're big fans of Dolly Parton at our house, aren't we not, Constance? I love Miss Dolly. Always have. Dolly's kinda like a diamond, you know. You can hold her up and there are so many facets to her. She's a great actress. She's a great singer. So many great things, but tell ya one of the things I love most about her is her songwriting. It should never be overlooked the importance of Dolly Parton's contributions to the great American song book. That's true. Pickin' one favorite is mighty impossible, but right now Mr. Carter and I would like to do a song of Miss Dolly's. It's called 'I Will Always Love You'." Dolly said, "It better be good." Marty said, "Aww, okay. It will. Remember, you get whatcha pay for."

Marty said, "All right." Eddie said, "Great job there. All the Superlatives, Marty Stuart pickin' the mandolin. Gary Carter playin' some pretty steel guitar there on 'I Will Always Love You'." Eddie promoted Marty's book of photographs, Country Music: The Masters. After a commercial break, Marty said, "Hey, we gotta send out a Superlative salute to all of our friends in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. You know it's the pine belt. Home of the Armed Forces Museum at Camp Shelby. It's a place that honors the services and sacrifices of many of Mississippi's true heroes and heroines. And I suggest as soon as you're through at the museum at Camp Shelby, get in your car and head up I-40 to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee and go to ......." Dolly said, "Dollywood, Dixie Stampede, Splash Country, shall I go on?" Marty said, "Go right ahead, go right ahead. That would be Dollywood. I love Dollywood. I do. I like the log ride. Speakin of log rides. Here's somethin' that'll take you on an adventure just as fun as the log ride. Ladies and gentlemen, the ole Sultan of Goodlettsville, the most popular man in country music, the ole Tennessee Slicker. How 'bout a hand for our friend Leroy Troy. Come here, Leroy. Hey, Hello buddy boy. Looka here. I wish you'd look. You know Dolly and Connie, yes. How 'bout that."

Leroy: "All right."

Marty: "A man that Vince Gill said put the 'Good' in Goodlettsville. I like that."

Leroy: "Yeah, I like that. I sure do."

Marty: "What's on your mind, Goodlettsville feller?"

Leroy: "Oh, my back's a hurtin' a little bit."

Marty: "No."

Leroy: "I was out today and installed some reflectors on our mailbox."

Marty: "Well."

Leroy: "We sure did."

Marty: "Need them sometimes."

Leroy: "Yeah. Red and blue. It looks great. I'm not gonna hit that mailbox any more. Speakin' of reflectors...."

Marty: "Yeah."

Leroy: "We're gonna reflect on a little number here called 'The Fireball Mail'."

Marty: "You're kiddin'. One of my favorites."

Leroy: All right."

Marty: "Come on."

Leroy: "Let's get it."

Marty said, "Well, that's all right." Eddie Stubbs said, "Well, Sunday's gonna be here before we all know it and we'd like to remind you to attend the church of your choice on Sunday morning. And with that thought in mind, we declare hymn time this week. We're gonna call on Dolly Parton to sing the song that she had out with Porter Waggoner years ago. One of the old favorites, 'Daddy Was An Old Time Preacher Man'."

Dolly said, "Yow." Marty said, "Yeah. That's how that works out." Dolly said, "Thank you. God bless ya, Marty." Marty said, "God bless you sister Rebecca." After a commercial break, Eddie Stubbs promoted the Superlatone Store. Eddie said, "And now with one of country music's all-time great keepsakes, here's Marty." Marty said, "Thank you for comin' to see us." Dolly said, "Well, thank you. This is fun." Marty said, "Well ...." Dolly interrupted, "I've known you since your hair was flat and my chest was." Everyone laughed. Marty continued, "Hey, I've got a question for you." Dolly said, "Oh yeah?" Marty said, "One of my favorite songs, you and I always talk about 'Jolene'." Dolly said, "Yeah." Marty said, "Is there really a Jolene?" Dolly said, "Well, yeah. And, believe it or not, she's still followin' me around. I think she's in the audience today. She was a redheaded gal, but I think she's turned her hair blonde." Marty said, "That's her." Dolly said, "Is that her? I'm not sure." Marty said, "She's still doggin' you after all these years." Dolly said, "She is. I tell you, I don't know. That one looks like one of those drag queens that does Dolly on the road." Marty said, "You've a few of those." Dolly said, "I do. Well anyway, but 'Jolene' is loosely based on a true story." Marty said, "Well, why don't you just sing it then." Dolly said, "I think I will." Ladies and gentlemen, Miss Dolly Parton." Dolly said, "All right, thank you, Marty." Marty said, "Go Dolly." Dolly said, "Sorry Melba Toast. Just kiddin' you."

Marty said, "Yes sir. Thatta girl. Have I told you lately that I love ya?" Dolly said, "Yeah, I love you, too." Marty said, "On behalf of Miss Dolly Parton, Miss Connie Smith, come here baby, all the Fabulous Superlatives, Leroy Troy, Eddie Stubbs, and Gary Carter, I'm Marty Stuart sayin' thank you for comin' to see us. We'll see ya again right here next week on The Marty Stuart Show."
