Stuart documentary short coming

Thursday, December 16, 2010 – A short form documentary is in the works about Marty Stuart. The film looks at Stuart's early life and influences in his hometown of Philadelphia, Miss. and the role it played in the making of his latest album, "Ghost Train (The Studio B Sessions)."

"Marty Stuart In Philadelphia, MS," is set to premiere in early 2011, and was helmed by Jacob Hatley, who directed "Ain't In It For My Health: A Film About Levon Helm." Songs from the album are featured throughout the documentary short, including stories behind the songs.

"The piece focuses on how music and location work together or how places often inspire and influence artists," said Hatley. "Marty's sound comes from a very specific region, and it was a real privilege to be able to go down to Mississippi and get to know the people who shaped him as an artist."

A clip of the film can be previewed.

Stuart received two 2011 Grammy nominations for "Best Country Collaboration With Vocals" for I Run to You, the duet written and performed with his wife and country music queen Connie Smith and "Best Country Instrumental" for Hummingbird, his tribute to guitarist Clarence White. He is currently taping new episodes for the third season of The Marty Stuart Show which debuts on Jan. 8 with Willie Nelson as the first guest. The show brings traditional country music into living rooms every Saturday night on RFD-TV and continues to be the channel's highest rated show.

The title cut gets straight to the point with a psychedelic journey song, which is as much a warning against drug abuse as it is a physical trip to the golden state. "Time Don't Wait" alludes to much of the garage rock that came out of California '60s, and more specifically points back to The Byrds' heyday with its glorious jangling Rickenbacker guitar part. ...
CD review - Saturday Night/ Sunday Morning Since leaving his 1990s' mainstream country music output in his tracks, Marty Stuart has been on an incredible run, both in terms of quality and quantity. Not only has he continued to perfect his rocking-yet-traditional brand of country music, but he has also released several well-regarded gospel albums. His latest double, "Saturday Night/Sunday Morning," gives a double helping of music that will please both secular and sacred music fans. The country half is in keeping with ...
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 ...
