|Marty Stuart and The Fabulous Superlatives:|
Marty Stuart's 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.
Marty Stuart - One of the Most Important Roots Musicians and VisionariesMarty Stuart began playing guitar at age 9, and went on the road playing mandolin with a gospel music group at age 12!
Marty Stuart has shown a showman’s zest for every conceivable flavor of country music. Not to mention, a missionary’s zeal for bringing the importance of the music and its themes home to longtime fans and newcomers alike.
Musicologist Peter North cites, “Marty Stuart seems wrapped in his destiny at this point in time. Not only as country music’s most notable ambassador/caretaker, but as its main archetypical crusader. He has without question evolved into one of the most important roots musicians and visionaries in America.”
Ghost Train - Newest Marty Stuart EndeavourMarty’s newest chapter is Ghost Train (The Studio B Sessions) which includes such unmitigated country staples as the male-female duet "I Run to You," written and sung with Connie Smith), the chugging, bluesy—and spooky— fellow Mississippian Jimmie Rodgers-like train song "Ghost Train Four-Oh-Ten," and such steel guitar driven, hardcore heartbreak ballads such as "A World Without You," (another co-write with Connie) and "Drifting Apart."
As the Ghost Train project unfolded, Stuart notes, “I referred to the original blueprint of country music for the subject matter…those were my standards. I wrote about love, marriage, heartaches, trains, home, work (or the lack of), vagrancy, the law, jail, rivers, death, sin, redemption, drinking and goodhearted women. Those words and melodies are wrapped around rounders, ghosts, lovesick fools, the tortured soul of a grim executioner, a wino, a preacher, the working man, rocking and rolling country boys, weary tearstained travelers, gamblers, thugs, thieves, and the likes of me. The stories are staged from locations that vary from San Francisco to Texas, Heaven, Hell, a graveyard, hanging gallows, Nashville and on to Mississippi where all of those places somehow slowly morph into railroad tracks that disappear into the middle of nowhere. Now that’s my kind of story and a pretty honest reflection of the last few years of my life. It’s pure language from the Old Testament side of country music. And according to the newspaper I read this morning, all of the above mentioned are alive and well…still valid.”In an interview Marty Stuart was asked
What song do you want to have people remember you having written?
Marty replied, "It's a song you probably have never heard, a song I wrote for the Chuckwagon Gang- Someday"
SomedaySomeday we will go home,
We'll live with angels around God's great throne
Someday our loved ones we'll see,
A welcome in Heaven awaits for me,
We'll have eternal peace and rest,
I'll live alone in the home of the blessed
"I believe that song."
This youtube playlist includes the Chuck Wagon Gang singing "Someday" as well as early footage of Marty with Lester Flatt.
