Marty said, "Aww, that's Miss Connie Smith and some of The Sundowners and a few Superlatives. We played a concert recently in Walcott, Iowa in the parking lot of the world's largest truck stop, Superlatives. I mean, had thousands of our truck drivin' friends out there. Wrote this song especially for you." Marty and His Fabulous Superlatives performed "Whole Lotta Highway."

Marty said, "Truck drivers." After a commercial break, Marty said, "Ladies and gentlemen, me and The Apostle Paul's 1,000-watt smile are brought to you each and every week by the great state of Mississippi which is regarded as the birthplace of America's music. I invite you to come to my beautiful home state and explore the natural beauty that surrounds the nearly 200 historical stops along the Blues and Country Music Trails that run throughout the Magnolia state, Apostle. I might suggest that you begin your trail marker journey in the north state and travel south throughout the Mississippi Delta on the famous Blues Highway 61. Take your time. Explore the different regions and the different trail markers along the way. When you get to the beautiful Mississippi gulf coast and right before you drive into the Gulf of Mexico, back up, turn around and go east and west and enjoy all that Gulfport, Biloxi, Bay St. Louis, Pass Christian has to offer. You'll find trail markers all along the coast. You'll also find great food, sun, beaches, relaxation, and a world of southern hospitality waiting on ya. It's the perfect way to top off a journey through the Magnolia state before goin' home or you can do like so many people have, Apostle. Get a place of your own and join in all the proceedings of the Magnolia state. So how 'bout a hand for dear ole Mississippi, the Blues and Country Music Trails, the beautiful Mississippi gulf coast, the Apostle Paul Martin and his 1,000-watt smile. There he is right there." Paul said, "And an honorary Mississippian, too." Marty said, "Yes sir. You are an honorary Mississippian? That's right. And how 'bout a hand for the Sultan of Goodlettsville. He's been to the Magnolia state as well. How 'bout a hand for Leroy Troy, the ole Tennessee Slicker, There he is. Hello dear pal." Leroy performed "The Death Of John Henry."

Marty said, "I thank you for that, sir." Eddie said, " 'The Death Of John Henry' We'll send it up to our friends in West Virginia. Leroy Troy doin' a great job there with it. We've got some special folks that are coming by today. Here to tell ya about it is Marty Stuart." Marty said, "Comin' to us all the way from Lincolnton, Georgia, Jeff and Sheri Easter. How 'bout a hand for Jeff and Sheri. Singin' the good gospel all over the world." Sheri said, "Yeah, all over." Marty said, "Me and Eddie Stubbs were talkin' back there, long before there was a Jeff Easter, we all loved Sheri out on the blugrass festival circuit." Sheri said, "Thank you very much. Love back atcha." Marty said, "Yes ma'am. But we're glad you found Jeff Easter. He's a good man. A good man." Jeff said, "Glad to be here. Glad to be here." Marty said, "Yeah, you picked out one of my favorite Lester Flatt songs, if not my favorite Lester Flatt song to sing." Sheri said, "It's a great one. It is. It's a lot of fun." Marty said, "Shall we work him? All right. 'I'm Workin' On A Road To Glory Land' How 'bout a hand for Jeff and Sheri Easter, ladies and gentlemen. A one, two, three."

After a commercial break, Eddie said, "Well, it's fixin' to get real interesting right now as we turn things over to Marty Stuart and Leroy Troy." Marty said, "The mail is this deep." Leroy said, "Really." Marty continued, "After you did this particular song the last time." Leroy said, "Yeah." Marty said, "The friends and neighbors need to hear it again. Would ya do it?" Leroy said, "The mail is this deep?" Marty said, "This deep. And so is the bull." Leroy said, "Hey, I can smell the chickens now." Marty said, "Ohhhhh." Leroy said, "But you know nothin' smells any better than chicken fryin' in a skillet. You know it?" Marty said, "That's right." Leroy said, "Ya think it only take that and bottle it up, put it in a pan, and spray it." Marty said, "That'd smell like chicken spray, wouldn't it?" Marty and Leroy cracked up laughting. Marty said, "Why don't ya..." Leroy said, "Ahh, after that, we'd better have a tune." Marty said, "We'd better. What's it gonna be called?" Leroy said, One called 'Ghost Chickens In The Sky'." Marty said, "Oh, how 'bout a hand for Leroy." Leroy said, "C minor." Marty said, "Here he comes, America."

Marty said, "Oh, Leroy. Cous. We did it, didn't we. He did it. Just like he said he would. You asked for it. You got it. Leroy Troy. On behalf of Jeff, Sheri. Connie, Eddie Stubbs, The Superlatives, Gary Carter, Rick Wright, and I'm Marty Stuart sayin' thank you for comin' to see us. We'll see ya again next week, right here on The Marty Stuart Show.
