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.
Nice to read that you enjoyed the show. I’ll be seeing MS for the first time in February in Decatur, AL.
Hi Chris, Thanks for reading. Enjoy the show.
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.
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!
His show Saturday was great. I was inspired to write him up again today.
Hi Dr. B.
Glad to hear. Do you have a blog? Would love to read it.
Dr. B. I really enjoyed your blog. Would you mind if I included it on my list?
