Stuart readies music for April

Thursday, February 16, 2012 – Marty Stuart will release his second album for Sugar Hill Records, "Nashville, Volume 1: Tear The Woodpile Down" on April 24.

The 10-song collection, almost entirely written by Stuart, features his touring band The Fabulous Superlatives. Buck Trent, Kenny Lovelace and Robbie Turner are joined by Hank Williams III and Lorrie Carter Bennett (The Carter Family) on harmony vocals to fill out the cast.

"When I reconnected with traditional country music I found myself, my calling," said Stuart. "The kind that is timeless, beautiful, beyond trend, the empowering force, the reflection of a people and a culture. The kind of country music that the working man and scholars alike call home. The job seemed to be to champion it, love it, protect it, care for its people, attempt to write a new chapter for it and to make sure that everybody understands that it's alive and well in the 21st century."

"When I first came to Nashville . . . the most outlaw thing you could possibly do around here was to take country music and blow it up into rock & roll. Mission accomplished. Today, the most outlaw thing you can possibly do in Nashville, Tennessee is play country music."

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 ...
