Marty Stuart to host XM show

Wednesday, September 19, 2007 – Marty Stuart will host a new show on XM satellite radio starting next month. Debuting on Friday, Oct. 5, "Marty Stuart's American Odyssey" will expose fans to broad range of American music - including traditional country, blues, rockabilly, bluegrass, gospel and rock songs - with Stuart serving as host.

"'American Odyssey' will be an amazing adventure inside the musical walls of our cities. It's theater and radio has always been great theater to me; I knew XM was where it belonged," said Stuart. "This will be a journey through America with a big smile."

Each hour-long episode of "Marty Stuart's American Odyssey" will focus on a different part of the country and bring the musical sounds and stories of that region to life through informal interviews with local musicians, stories, guests and a regular cast of studio and tour musicians.

New episodes of "Marty Stuart's American Odyssey," which airs Fridays at 8 a.m. ET on XM's classic country channel "America" (XM 10), will also be available all day every Friday on "XMX" (XM 2), a recently launched channel that provides fans with XM's most popular original music shows all in one place.

"It's a real honor to add 'Marty Stuart's American Odyssey' to the roster of XM original music series," said Eric Logan, executive vice president of programming, XM. "With seven dedicated country music channels, original programming that connects country fans their favorite artists, our announcement today further demonstrates our commitment to country all year long."

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.

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 ...
