Marty Stuart is a five-time Grammy winner, platinum recording artist, Grand Ole Opry star, country music archivist, Southern culture historian, photographer, musician, songwriter, TV show host, charismatic force of nature, and country music fan.
Stuart has spent over 4 decades celebrating American roots music with a missionary’s zeal. His teenage years on tour with bluegrass legend Lester Flatt in the ‘70s were followed by six years in Johnny Cash’s band during the ‘80s and a chart-topping tenure as a solo artist in the ‘90s. Stuart’s zest for every conceivable flavor of country music is also sen regularly by TV viewers these days, on RFD-TV’s The Marty Stuart Show. As musicologist Peter North cites, “He has without question evolved into one of the most important roots musicians and visionaries in America.”
