A compilation of rockabilly, honky tonk, and traditional music is what Marty Stuart gives out of. John Marty Stuart was born on September 30, 1958. He is an American country music singer-songwriter. During the 90’s, Stuart was a household name, and he was very successful in country hits.
A childhood in Philadelphia, Mississippi, Stuart has a Columbian descent. His obsession with country music is what made him play the guitar and mandolin, and his first breakthrough to music was when he was 12 years of age. His first performance was with the bluegrass group The Sullivan Family. In the later stage, his meet up with Lester Flatt bandmember Roland White actually changed the life of Marty Stuart. Since then, Stuart has been in his band and as well as got the chance to learn from White as well. His friendship with Lester Flatt also came to an end when the latter left the band due to his failing health and later on, his death.
Stuart released his debut solo album with Ridge Runner Records titled "With A Little Help From My Friends". During the year 1982, a second album got released called "Busy Bee Café". Both albums couldn’t provide much success.
With Stuart’s divorce with Cindy Cash (Johnny Cash’s daughter) in 1988, Stuart returned back home but then he got invited back into the band which somehow gave Stuart a newfound confidence. A new deal with MCA Records, made Stuart release his first album on MCA titled "Hillbilly Rock" in the year 1990. In the year 1991, Stuart released his second album "Tempted" and the title track began to feature as the top 5 hits.
In the year 1993, a sixth album was released “This One’s Gonna Hurt You” and the title track was sung by Stuart and Travis Tritt which became another Top Ten hit and thus became Stuart’s first Gold album. Both Marty and Travis had road tours from the year 1991 to 1993. Another album "Love and Luck" was released and from that only one song “Kiss Me, I’m Gone” made it to the top 40’s. Post-1995, Marty Stuart’s album sales kept on declining and it wasn’t even successful at all.
In the year 2008 on November 1, a show began to air on cable’s RFD-TV which was dedicated completely to feature country music and was hosted by Marty Stuart himself, the show got named as The Marty Stuart Show. Each of the episodes featured music by Stuart and his band named as the Fabulous Superlatives, his then-wife Connie Smith who was then the Grand Ole Opry star.
