Listen: Marty Stuart & His Fabulous Superlatives Have The Mountain Stage Song Of The Week

Marty Stuart

This week’s show is a look back to March of 2012, one of many times Mountain Stage has partnered with the Birthplace of Country Music over the years.

"The main difference that I see in now and when I first came to Nashville is, back then it seemed that the most outlaw thing you could do around here was to take country music and blow it up into rock & roll. Today, the most outlaw thing you can possibly do in Nashville Tennessee is play country music."

Hear Marty Stuart as he makes his third appearance on Mountain Stage, alongside his band The Fabulous Superlatives, recorded live in the border town of Bristol, TN/VA. A virtuoso guitarist by any definition of the term, Stuart’s band also includes some of the most sought-after pickers in Nashville, if not the world.
