This morning on the Craig & Al Morning show Craig and I got to talking about one of my favorite country musicians Marty Stuart. He showed up in Nashville at 13 and went to work for Lester Flatt. After that he spent some time in Johnny Cash’s band, and with Porter Wagoner. He’s been a Nashville fixture since 1970. His first big hit was “HillBilly Rock” and he’s had several medium hits over the years. Stuart is a well-known as a song writer working with Travis Tritt on “The Whiskey Aint’ Workin” and “This one’s Gonna Hurt You.” He’s always been his own man and a traditionalist when it comes to his music. He’s been a member of the Grand Ole Opry since 1992. He’s done bluegrass and southern gospel, along with some very good country. He can flat play the frets right off a guitar. Stuart’s band is “The Fabulous Superlatives” and they appear with him on his weekly TV show “The Marty Stuart Show” on RFD TV.

If you want a real sample of Marty Stuart’s music go find a copy of “Ghost Train: The Studio B Sessions.” It came out in 2010.
