Marty said, "I'm Marty Stuart. Welcome to The Marty Stuart Show. So glad you could join us today. Let me tell ya about our first guest. Not long ago, it was a Nashville moment. Goin' down through one of the streets in Nashville, I saw this gorgeous 1957 hot red '57 Chevy comin' down the street. And the closer it got, I said, 'That can only be one person'. I saw red hair. She was made up, lookin' like a doll that she is. One of my favorite singers of all time. How 'bout a hand for the great Wynonna." Wynonna said, "Honey." Marty continued, " I love having you here Miss Judd.". Wynonna said, "I love you." Marty said, "I love you, too. I'm going to play for you now." Wynonna said, "Well why don't you do that." Wynonna performed "Why Not Me."

Marty said, "That's Miss Wynonna Judd, ladies and gentlemen. I love that girl. That's all there is to it." After a commercial break, Marty said, "Welcome back, ladies and gentlemen. Hey Superlatives. Our friend Wynonna. How 'bout a hand for the great Connie Smith. Come here, baby." Connie walks out with a puppy in her arms. Marty said, "Looka here." Connie said, "I brought you somethin'." Marty said, "I love him. It's a girl. Hi Gertrude." Marty gives Gertrude a kiss on the head and continues, "Hi Gertrude. Looks a little like Eddie Stubbs. She's cute." Wynonna yells, "I want her." Marty said, "Wynonna just bought Gertrude. Would you sing me a song now." Connie said, "I'd love to." Marty said, "And dedicate it to Gertrude." Connie said, "I'll do it just for Gertrude." Marty said, "All right." Connie performed "That Makes Two Of Us."

Marty said, "Oh yeah. How 'bout a hand for Mr. Rick Wright and that beautiful solo. Fine job, Mr. Wright. And how 'bout a hand for all those pretty girls over there. Especially Gertrude." Marty and His Fabulous Superlatives performed "Lovestruck."
