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. Nice to read that you enjoyed the show. I’ll be seeing MS for the first time in February in Decatur, AL.

  2. Hi Chris, Thanks for reading. Enjoy the show.

  3. 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!

  4. Darlene,

    His show Saturday was great. I was inspired to write him up again today.
