The Marty Stuart Show

The Marty Stuart Show is THE show to watch for every lover of real
traditional country music. It is a half hour show which airs every
Saturday night and it is in its 4th season now.
It all started a couple of years back. When Marty was on tour he came
across an old Porter Wagoner Show on tv and thought that one of the band
members had brought a dvd. But then he found out that the show was on
RFD TV, a Nashville based tv station and as they call themselves “Rural
America´s most important network”. And Marty Stuart started to think
that someone ought to redo a show like the Porter Wagoner Show, the
Wilburn Brothers Show, Flatt & Scruggs show and that led to idea
that he might do a show like that himself.

He got in touch with the president and founder of RFD TV and it didn`t
need much convincing with Marty`s enthusiasm. The Marty Stuart Show is a
big success of the network and each week up to around a million viewers
are clued to their tv screens when the Marty Stuart Show is on.

The guestlist of the now past 100 show is absolutely striking –
worldclass tradiotional country artists. Just to name a few, there was
Dolly Parton, Merle Haggard, Tanya Tucker, Bobby Bare, Keith Urban,
Willie Nelson, Ricky Skaggs, Earl Scruggs, Charlie Louvin, Don
Maddox…too many to mention – but pure hillbilly heaven.

The concept of the show is similar to the old Porter Wagoner Shows. Each
episode is sculpted around the guests with permanent performances of
Connie Smith and Leroy Troy and Eddie Stubbs acting as the official
The show gives Marty Stuart & His Fabulous Superlatives a platform
to showcase old and new songs. Quite a few songs that were originally
written just for the tv show end up being on one of Marty Stuart`s cds.
Each member of Marty`s band – the Fabulous Superlatives – get their
airtime too to showcase their talents.

Each season consists of 26 episodes, usually taped in the winter at the
Northstar Studios in Nashville in front of a small audience. The setting
for the show looks like a mixture of the Country Music Hall of Fame,
with rhinestone costumes, boots, hats and scarves and hay bales covered
with Indian blankets.

The show can be watched online worldwide on the internet, if you
suscribe to RFD TV`s Country Club on the internet and it is worth every
cent to become a member. Check:

I hope that Marty Stuart & The Fabulous Superlatives will continue
what they do for country music and that there will be many more seasons
of this incredible show.
