Marty Stuart



Guaranteed to work or your money back – PLEASE NOTE ALL MONIES FROM THIS SALE GO TO A 501 (C)3 NO KILL ANIMAL SHELTERMarty Stuart has always been a terrific singer and picker (as well as a smart, ardent country music historian and collector), but only rarely has he written songs worthy of his other talents. However, on The Pilgrim, a concept album that tells a true story from Stuart’s Mississippi hometown, he has finally found a theme to inspire a whole collection of substantial songs. The title character falls in love with a woman at work, discovers too late she’s married, watches her husband kill himself, flees the town for years of drunken wandering, and finally finds redemption in religion and marriage. Here are the great themes of hillbilly music–infidelity, violence, rambling, alcoholism, church and family–wrapped up in an ongoing narrative. It’s not surprising that Stuart can get satisfying results from this material when he reaches back to older musical styles and such guest performers as Ralph Stanley, George Jones, Johnny Cash, and Earl Scruggs. More impressive is the way he makes the same themes work with the cranked-up, drum-driven country-rock of modern Nashville, which seems to have forgotten how gripping the dark side of human drama can be. –Geoffrey Himes

American Ballads: The Photographs of Marty Stuart (A Frist Center for the Visual Arts Title)

American Ballads: The Photographs of Marty Stuart (A Frist Center for the Visual Arts Title)

Although known primarily as a country music star, Marty Stuart has been taking photographs of the people and places surrounding him since he first went on tour with bluegrass performer Lester Flatt at age twelve. His inspirations to do this include his own mother, Hilda Stuart, whom he watched document their family’s everyday life in Mississippi, bassist Milt Hinton’s photographs of fellow jazz artists, and Edward Curtis’s well-known images of Native Americans at the turn of the twentieth century. Stuart’s work ranges from intimate and often candid behind-the-scenes depictions of legendary musicians, to images that capture the eccentricities of characters from the back roads of America, to dignified portraits of members of the impoverished Lakota tribe in South Dakota, a people he was introduced to through his former father-in-law, Johnny Cash. Whatever the subject, Stuart is able to sensitively tease out something unexpected or hidden beneath the surface through a skillful awareness of timing and composition as well as a unique relationship with many of the subjects based on years of friendship and trust.

This book will present images from these three bodies of work: “Badlands,” on his time with the Lakota; “The Masters,” from his work with musicians like Bill Monroe, Johnny Cash, Ray Charles, Dolly Parton, George Jones, Kitty Wells, Willie Nelson, and Waylon Jennings; and “Blue Line Hot Shots.” As Stuart explains, “The newly built Interstate Highway System was at one time represented on our maps by the color red, while the two-lane highways and back roads of the nation were represented in blue. The back roads are where you’ll find some of the people that I admire, respect, and always keep an eye out for. … They are renegades … As Roger Miller once said, ‘These people flush to the beat of a different plumber.’ ”

The photographs are framed by an introduction by Stuart and a context-setting essay by photography historian Susan Edwards, executive director of the First Center for the Visual Arts. The book and accompanying exhibition at the First Center demonstrate that Marty Stuart is a master storyteller not only through his songs but also through his revealing and compelling photographs.

“When I first began traveling I loved the adventure of going from town to town and exploring what each place had to offer. Whenever possible, on the day of the show I walked the streets and back roads, gathering stories and songs from local folks. I studied everything from the different kinds of architecture that surrounded me to the majesty of the sunsets and how they affected the mood of the town I was in. That first season was filled with the joy of a new musical life taking flight. The applause, the spotlight, the sparkle of the fame, the freedom of ‘here today, go somewhere else tomorrow’ charmed me night after night, day after day, until show business found its mark and became a way of life. I enjoyed every minute of the dance. I still love those things, but most of all it’s the people that I’ve enjoyed along the way, namely the characters. The kind of characters who can be defined as American originals.”

Compadres: An Anthology Of Duets, an album that is part of Marty Stuart’s worldwide celebration of the past, present, and future of Country Music. Know as Country Music’s most historically minded new traditionalist and a true renaissance man, Marty has scored six top-ten hits, one platinum and five gold albums, won four Grammyr Awards, and received a Golden Globe nomination. Stuart’s over three-decade voyage includes countless miles logged as a member of Johnny Cash’s band and a monstrous solo career in the nineties, which spawned such chart topping hits as Hillbilly Rock and Burn Me Down. Along the way, Stuart recorded with many country legends and proved that you can perform contemporary country for a broad audience without forgetting or neglecting country roots. The singer/songwriter/musician/producer is still on fire creatively today, having released three albums last year and garnering yet another Grammyr nomination for his Live At The Ryman. Marty’s latest release, Compadres: An Anthology Of Duets, is an album that is part of Marty Stuart’s worldwide celebration of the past, present, and future of Country Music. Marty Stuart began collaborating with legends when he joined Lester Flatt’s Nashville Grass as a 13-year-old mandolinist. One of his biggest singles, 1991’s “The Whiskey Ain’t Workin’,” teamed him with Travis Tritt. This compilation includes a rare Stuart mandolin workout on Bill Monroe’s “Rawhide” recorded onstage with Flatt in 1974, and “Hearts Like Ours” with wife Connie Smith. He and ex-father-in-law Johnny Cash created a fiery revival of Cash’s Sun recording of “Doin’ My Time.” With Steve Earle, Stuart created a beautifully understated rendition of Buddy Holly’s “Crying, Waiting, Hoping.” He was equally adept with Earl Scruggs on “John Henry” and with Merle Haggard on a 2003 “Farmer’s Blues.” That empathy extended to blues and gospel greats, apparent on “The Weight” with the Staple Singers and “Confessin’ the Blues” with B.B. King. Two unreleased tracks include Stuart and Loretta Lynn reviving “Will You Visit Me on Sunday,” a tune she’d previously recorded with the late Conway Twitty, and the Who’s “I Can See for Miles” with Stuart, his band, and Old Crow Medicine Show. Unlike the many Nashville “vocal events” that are simply contrived marketing ploys, Stuart’s collaborations are consistently organic, without a shred of artifice. –Rich Kienzle
