Stuart jam raises $30K for flood relief

Tuesday, June 15, 2010 – Marty Stuart's annual Late Night Jam on June 9 at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium raised $30,000 for flood relief from the recent Nashville floods. All proceeds from the concert benefited the MusiCares Nashville Flood Relief Fund.

"It truly warmed my heart to see all of the fans that showed up to support us and the ongoing cash donations coming to the stage throughout the night," said Stuart. "We all came together to help our brothers and sisters still suffering from the flood devastation...and we had a pretty good time in the process."

Marty Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives were joined by Keith Urban, Songwriter Hall of Fame members Dallas Frazier and Cowboy Jack Clement, Steel Guitar Hall of Fame member Ralph Mooney, Connie Smith, the Tennessee Mafia Jug Band and surprise guests Vince Gill and Gene Watson.

CD review - Nashville: Volume 1 - Tear the Woodpile Down Marty Stuart lives and breathes country music. It's in his blood through associations with folks like Johnny Cash. He's a huge collector of country's history, a photographer, and, oh yeah, quite a fine musician. Stuart returns for another superb disc of only 10 songs (that's the only criticism here in a tight 31 or so minute set) mixing his stellar, full-bodied Mississippi drawl vocals, great playing, an instrumental, a spoken word (not the first time he has done that) with ...
