GRAMMY-winner and American music icon Marty Stuart is yet again helping preserve traditional country music with a new season of his highly rated TV show, The Marty Stuart Show, set to begin taping its third season in November. Stuart handpicks the esteemed list of guests that has included Earl Scruggs, Merle Haggard, Dolly Parton, Dierks Bentley, Emmylou Harris, Vince Gill, Old Crow Medicine Show and many more over the past two seasons. The show received a 2010 Telly Award, recognized as an outstanding cable TV program.
“I grew up watching shows like the Porter Wagoner show on TV, and I want to be able to provide people in America with a place to find that type of program again,” explains Stuart. “We try and highlight the best of what’s happening in the way of traditional country music. We get to work with old friends and some real music legends and also help introduce our audience to some new singers in the new wave coming up now….and it sure is fun!”
