All of 'em are big days but this is especially a big day. We've been waitin' on this lady for two years to come by. We just waited her out until she finally said 'yes'. She just happens to be one of the greatest country singers of our time. The one and only Miss Patty Loveless. How 'bout a hand for Patty. Hello Patricia. Atta girl. Thank you for comin'." Patty said, "Hey Marty." Marty continued, "Yes, ma'am. All right. It's all yours, Patty." Patty sang "Why Baby Why."

Marty said, "That's how it goes right there. That's how it goes right there. You did good, Patty. You did good." Eddie said, "One of the best loved hillbilly songs of all time right there. 'Why Baby Why' sung by Miss Patty Loveless." 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 everybody. How 'bout a hand for Miss Patty Loveless over here Superlatives. And all the young'uns. A true country music assistant. And how 'bout a hand for one of the greatest of all time. Comin' through this red door right now is the wonderful Miss Connie Smth. Come here Constance. Well. Do it baby." Connie performed "Paper Roses."

Marty said, "Well, let's put the Mississippi Mudcat special on ya. Leroy, see what we can do. Wherever Leroy is." Marty performed an instrumental of "Soldier's Joy" and the "Black Mountain Rag."

Marty said, "Thanks." Eddie said, "Fine job, Marty, right there with his D-45 Martin guitar and a medley of 'Soldier's Joy' and the 'Black Mountain Rag'. Marty, you're gettin' hot there up there where the money was a few times." Marty said, "I'm tellin' you boy. I'm tellin' you." Eddie promoted Marty's book of photographs, Country Music: The Masters. After a commercial break, Marty said, "That's the way it is, that's the way it is. Hey ladies and gentlemen. Welcome back to The Marty Stuart Show. First of all, write us at the Grand Ole Opry. We'd love to hear from ya. Or come see us at the Grand Ole Opry over there. Eddie Stubbs is always there. Connie's there from time to time. Me and The Superlatives are there. But if you're ever in Mississippi, here's what I might suggest to ya. Go to Jackson, Mississippi, the capital city. And I encourage you to visit the old State House Museum for a fine Southern experience. While you're there, go by the Governor's mansion. It's the second oldest continuously occupied residence of four United States Governors. Just knock on the door and tell the Gov that Marty and the Apostle sent ya. He'll be glad to see ya. He's a nice feller, don't you think?" Paul said, "Good man." Marty said, "Good man. Speaking of good men, here comes one right now. The most popular man in country music, the Sultan of Goodletsville, ladies and gentlemen. The ole Tennessee Slicker. How 'bout a hand for Leroy Troy. Leroy. Hey buddy. I wish you'd look over here. Fine, fine, fine, fine."

Marty: "Good afternoon, sir."

Leroy: "Good afternoon."

Marty: "You're lookin' mighty good today."

Leroy: "Well, thank ya."

Marty: "You got a nice smile on your face. Everything all right?"

Leroy: "Yeah, man, I had two watermelons come in yesterday."

Marty: "Already?"

Leroy: "Yeah."

Marty: "That's a truth. That's great."

Leroy: "Yeah, Kendra brought 'em in from the store."

Marty: "Oh, I thought you grew 'em. No matter where they come from, just as long as they come in."

Leroy: "And that is the subject of of my next tune and it will be 'Watermelon Hanging On The Vine'."

Marty said, "That's a fine song, Leroy. That's a fine song." Eddie Stubbs said, "Well, you know it's hymn time this week and one of the greatest gifts that all of us have ever received is the gift of our mama. Songs about mama and home have been a tremendous inspiration to all of us through the years in country music. Here is one that Marty Stuart wrote. He's going to be joined by Harry and Paul on the chorus. Opening remarks on guitar from Kenny Vaughan. 'Roses For Mama'."

After a commercial break, Eddie Stubbs promoted the Superlatone Store. Eddie said, "Well, before we get re-aquainted with the pride of Pikeville, Kentucky, let's say hello once again to the pride of Philadelphia, Mississippi, here's Marty Stuart." Marty said, "Connie Smith and me were talkin' the other day. One of the greatest songs of all time is 'If My Heart Had Windows' by Dallas Frazier." Patty said, "Yes." Marty continued, "And we both agree that nobody in this world could ever sing it better than you." Patty said, "Oh, I don't know about that." Marty, asking the audience, "You agree with me?" Applause from the audience. Patty said, "Wow. Pressure, Marty." Marty said, "Well, no, no, no. Well, I tell ya. Not only that one but every one you've recorded is a stone-cold classic." Patty said, "Thank you." Marty said, "You have built a great body of work and I know one day, without question, that Patty Loveless will be in the Country Music Hall of Fame." Patty said, "Oh gosh." Marty said, "I have no doubt in my mind." Patty said, "I sure hope so." Marty continued, "You will." Patty said, "One day." Marty said, " But for right now, would you sing 'If My Heart Had Windows'?" Patty said, "I'd love to. Just for you and Connie." Marty said, "Pikeville, Kentucky's little darlin' How 'bout a hand for Miss Patty Loveless."

Marty said, "You made me cry. You made me cry. That's as good as it gets right there. That's as good as it gets. Patty Loveless. On behalf of Patty and all the folks, the Fabulous Superlatives, Leroy Troy, Eddie Stubbs, Gary Carter, I'm Marty Stuart sayin' thank you for joinin' us.
