Marty Stuart and His Fabulous Superlatives

Memorial Hall has adopted an “Artist / Client Preference” policy for health protocol at our events. Masks are optional for this event. Confirmation of vaccination status is not required.

With legends like George Jones, Johnny Cash, and Merle Haggard all passed on, country music purists often echo the question Jones himself asked:  “Who’s going to fill their shoes?”  The answer, in part, is Marty Stuart.

While he’s too gracious to admit it himself, the 5-time Grammy-winning singer, songwriter, and musician is living, breathing, country music history.  He’s played alongside the masters, from Cash to Lester Flatt, who discovered him; been a worldwide ambassador for Nashville, Bakersfield, and points in between; and safeguarded country’s most valuable traditions and physical artifacts, including its literal shoes:  Stuart counts the brogan of Carter Family patriarch A.P. Carter and an assortment of Cash’s black boots among his vast collection of memorabilia.

But most importantly, Stuart continues to record and release keenly relevant music, records that honor country’s rich legacy while advancing it into the future.  Way Out West, his 18th studio album, hits both of those marks.  Produced by Mike Campbell (of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers), the album is a cinematic tour de force, an exhilarating musical journey through the California desert that solidifies Stuart as a truly visionary artist.

As such, the album could only be recorded there, and Stuart, with his longtime backing band the Fabulous Superlatives, decamped for California.  They recorded half of the album at Capitol Records and the rest at Campbell’s M.C. Studio, a gritty space with a vibe all its own.  Much of the early Heartbreakers music was recorded at Campbell’s and that primal rock & roll energy is palpable throughout Way Out West, reinforced by Capitol’s own rock history:  the Hollywood studio birthed iconic records like the Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds and the country-rock of Glen Campbell’s Wichita Lineman.  Way Out West, with its atmospheric production, evokes those classics, as well as cowboy records like Marty Robbins’ Gunfighter Ballads and Trail Songs and Cash’s The Fabulous Johnny Cash, one of the first albums Stuart ever owned.

When it comes to transforming country songs into tangible experience, Stuart has a secret weapon:  the Fabulous Superlatives.  Made up of guitarist Kenny Vaughan, drummer Harry Stinson, and new member, bassist Chris Scruggs, the Superlatives are an extension of Stuart himself.
