Marty Stuart jams on

Thursday, February 10, 2011 – Marty Stuart will celebrate 10 years of his annual Late Night Jam on June 8 at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium as part of the CMA Music Festival activities.

Stuart started the CMA sponsored event as a way to welcome fans, and over the past 10 years it has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for MusiCares and has become the kick off event for CMA Music Fest. "The Late Night Jam has evolved into the centerpiece concert event for me on my yearly calendar," said Stuart.

"It's hard to believe that this is the 10th anniversary of the show. Looking back, the guest list has been staggering. Fans come from all over the world to support us and the relationship with NARAS and MusiCares is precious to me. The Late Night Jam has raised a considerable amount of money over the last decade with the mission of helping people in need. MusiCares has done a wonderful job of distributing the funds as they see fit. I know of a number of people who have benefitting from MusiCares, and in some instances, lives were saved. That's what it's all about. I'm looking forward to this year's event, me and the Superlatives will do our best to add another interesting chapter to the Jam's ongoing story."

Over the past 10 years, Keith Urban, Vince Gill, Dierks Bentley, Charlie Daniels, Porter Wagoner, Neko Case, Old Crow Medicine Show and Jerry Lee Lewis have appeared. The 2011 line up will be announced soon. Tickets go on sale this Friday, Feb. 11 at 11 a.m. eastern through Ticketmaster.

On Sunday, Stuart is nominated for a Grammy for "Best Country Collaboration With Vocals" and "Best Country Instrumental."

CD reviews for Marty Stuart

CD review - Way Out West Marty Stuart's "Way Out West" is, in part, his tribute to the music of California. 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 ...
