Marty Stuart shines in St. John`s

I had the priviledge Friday night of being in the Holy Heart Theatre in St. John`s to watch Marty Stuart and the Fabulous Superlatives.   It was one of the best country shows I have ever seen, and working in Country Radio for many years, I have seen many shows.

Before going in, I reflected on the fact that Marty Stuart played in Johnny Cash`s band, was married to his daughter Cindy, went to work for Lester Flatt at the age of 13, has played with Travis Tritt, Emmy-Lou Harris and many more, and probably doesn`t throw the word `Fabulous`around a lot, especially where it pertains to country music.  So I was looking forward to seeing him with the Fabulous Superlatives.

And I wasn`t disappointed.  From Marty Stuart`s known favorites like Tempted and Hillbilly Rock to some great classics like Long Black Veil and A Satisfied Mind, this was one great performance.

Hats off to the Superlatives, Paul Martin, Harry Stinson and `Cousin`Kenny Vaughn, who I had the great honor of sitting down and having a conversation after the show.  Playing with greats like McBride and the Ride, and back-up to many more, I took this quote from the Internet

Stuart is on a creative hot streak and, with guitarist Kenny Vaughan acting as his 6-string compadre, his mojo is at epic proportions.

It was indeed a priviledge.



  1. I got to play with Marty one time, and wrote him up on my blog today. The guy is a great player and was a genuine nice man to all of us.

    1. That is so cool. The promoter who bought him in also said he was a super nice guy. What a great experience playing with him must have been.
      Thanks for reading!
