A five-time GRAMMY Award-winning, platinum recording artist, Marty Stuart has spent over four decades celebrating American roots music with a missionary’s zeal. He began his career singing gospel as a child, and spent his teenage years on tour with bluegrass legend Lester Flatt in the 1970s. He then went on to spend six years in Johnny Cash's band during the '80s before enjoying success as a solo artist in the '90s.
The turn of the century saw Stuart looking inward to make deeply felt records paying homage to his love of vintage gospel, his Native American passions, and as always, his core – foot-stompin', tail-shakin', honky tonkin', rockin' hillbilly music. His latest musical oeuvre is ably supported by the coolest cats in Nashville – his backing band, The Fabulous Superlatives: guitarist Kenny Vaughan, drummer Harry Stinson, and bassist Paul Martin.
Stuart's zest for every conceivable flavor of country music is also seen regularly by TV viewers these days, on RFD-TV's "The Marty Stuart Show", a musical variety show and the number one program on the network.
