This is some exciting news---I just read that Chris Stapleton is going to have some company this year on his ‘All-American Road Show’: Marty Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives! Marty will join Chris Stapleton for 36 stopsthroughout 2018. Stuart and his band will serve as direct support on shows in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York City, St. Louis and more.
Tomorrow (Wednesday, January 31), a press conference and musical performance will be held at the Mississippi State Capitol to announce Marty Stuart’s Congress of Country Music. The new facility, which incorporates the historic Ellis Theater, is equal parts concert venue, museum, and educational center. With over 20,000 invaluable items, Stuart’s collection of country music artifacts is the largest private collection of its kind in the world. Included in the new development is the Marty Stuart Center, an inviting setting where students can learn about the spectrum of careers available within the music industry. Endorsed by the GRAMMY Museum, the Smithsonian National Museum of American History, and the Library of Congress, the Center will focus on using music to inspire learning, critical thinking, and self-expression.
Recently, Marty Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives debuted their cover of the classic Jimmy Martin song “Homesick” via Guitar World, who praised the “tasteful, bluesy, reverb-laden guitar playing we’ve come to expect from Stuart and Kenny Vaughan.” The track is part of Amazon Music’s “Love Me” and “Love Me Not” playlists which will be released on February 9th in honor of Valentine’s Day. Listen to “Homesick” via Guitar World here.
