The 'Pride Of Route 8' Comes To TV -
At the age of 14, Marty Stuart was touring with Flatt and Scruggs; At 22, he was a member of Johnny Cash's band, and had released a solo album of Bluegrass-music; In the 90s, he won 4 Grammy awards, and produced a string of top-10 Country hits, including Hillbilly Rock, Little Things, Burn Me Down, and his collaborations with Travis Tritt: This One's Gonna Hurt You, and The Whiskey Ain't Workin', both of which, were his own compositions.
There was no doubt that Stuart had made his mark on the Country Music world, when, in 2008, he decided to give TV a shot, with The Marty Stuart Show. Produced by Stuart, himself, in a styIe very much like The Wilburn Brothers Show and The Porter Wagoner Show, this half-hour program premiered on the RFD TV Network on November 1st, 2008, and features performances by Stuart, and his band, The Fabulous Superlatives, his wife - Connie Smith, "The most popular man in Country Music": banjoist Leroy Troy, and weekly guest appearances by such Country luminaries as Mel Tillis, Little Jimmy Dickens, John Anderson, Charley Pride, Josh Turner, Dierks Bentley, The Oak Ridge Boys, and Charlie Daniels, among many others.
Currently airing twice weekly, on RFD, this very laid-back production appeals to a wide range of Country fans, from Mountain/Bluegrass, to modern, to traditional Country.moreless
