Marty Stuart to Tour With Chris Stapleton, Announces Museum For Over 20,000 Country Music Artifacts

On Monday (January29), five time Grammy-winner Marty Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives announces thirty-six dates on Chris Stapleton's “All-American Road Show” tour throughout 2018. Stuart and his band will serve as direct support for Stapleton’s arena dates including St. Louis, Seattle, Los Angeles, Chicago, & New York City, and tickets for these shows will be available for presale on Wednesday, February 7th at 10 AM local time with code “WAYOUTWEST.” Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Friday, February 9th at 10 AM local time.

Then, this Wednesday, January 31st, a press conference and musical performance will be held at the Mississippi State Capitol to announce Marty Stuart’s Congress of Country Music. The new facility, which incorporates the historic Ellis Theater, is equal parts concert venue, museum, and educational center. With over 20,000 invaluable items, Stuart’s collection of country music artifacts is the largest private collection of its kind in the world. Included in the new development is the Marty Stuart Center, an inviting setting where students can learn about the spectrum of careers available within the music industry. Endorsed by the GRAMMY Museum, the Smithsonian National Museum of American History, and the Library of Congress, the Center will focus on using music to inspire learning, critical thinking, and self-expression.

Recently, Marty Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives debuted their cover of the classic Jimmy Martin song "Homesick" via Guitar World, who praised the “tasteful, bluesy, reverb-laden guitar playing we've come to expect from Stuart and Kenny Vaughan.” The track is part of Amazon Music’s “Love Me” and “Love Me Not” playlists which will be released on February 9th in honor of Valentine's Day.

Marty Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives are currently on their headlining U.S. tour with remaining dates in Austin, Dallas, Chattanooga, and Alexandria (full dates below). Two tiers of VIP packages will also be available in select markets on this tour, The Big Chief Special and The Hummingbyrd Bonanza.

Stuart and his band recently won the award for “Duo/Group of the Year” at the Americana Music Association’s 16th Annual Americana Honors & Awards. Previous winners of this prestigious award include The Avett Brothers, Drive-By Truckers, and Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell. In 2005 the Americana Music Association awarded Marty Stuart with the Lifetime Achievement Award for Performance.

Marty Stuart released Way Out West on Superlatone earlier this year, and MOJO named it one of their “Best Americana Albums of 2017.” The album was conceived as a love letter to the promised land of California by one of Country music’s living legends, who has played with everyone from Johnny Cash to Lester Flatt. NPR Music proclaims: “Way Out West is Marty Stuart’s album-length paean to the myth and magic of the American West. It finds country’s stalwart neo-traditionalist turning cosmic cowboy for a journey through the Joshua trees, shadowy canyons and desert dreams that tantalize travelers with the promise of a golden shore on the other side.” Way Out West is available on CD, vinyl, and digitally.

Marty Stuart is a five time Grammy-winner, platinum recording artist, Lifetime Achievement Award recipient from the Americana Music Association, Grand Ole Opry star, country music archivist, photographer, musician, and songwriter. Since starting out singing gospel as a child, Stuart has spent over four decades celebrating American roots music. His teenage years on tour with bluegrass legend Lester Flatt in the ’70s were followed by six years in Johnny Cash’s band in the ’80s, and a chart-topping tenure as a solo artist in the ’90s. Stuart hosts a Late Night Jam at The Ryman, a yearly tradition which kicks off the CMA Music Festival, with recent guests including Dolly Parton, Jerry Lee Lewis, Neko Case, Eric Church, Chris Stapleton, Maren Morris, Dan Auerbach and many more.
