Marty Stuart And His Fabulous Superlatives pack The Fine Line


Five time GRAMMY-winner Marty Stuart And His Fabulous Superlatives have been touring the U.S. in support of “Way Out West“, Marty’s 18th studio album. Mississippi born Marty Stuart was obsessed with learning the guitar and mandolin as a child. When Marty was just twelve years old he started performing. Throughout the years Marty has released eighteen studio albums and has won countless awards including five Grammy Awards. The fans were anxious to see their favorite country music legend. I heard many stories from fans talking with Marty after shows in the years past and just adore him. Families drove from the surrounding states to watch a small intimate show with the legend.

Kelsey Waldon opened the show for Marty Stuart. Kelsey is from Monkey’s Eyebrow, Kentucky. She has a sweet southern accent with a lot of southern charm.  Kelsey is currently touring the U.S. in support of her latest album released in late 2016  ” I’ve Got A Way “. Kelsey played a beautiful forty five minute nine song set. She thanked the fans for coming out early to see her perform.  The beautiful sound of her voice mixed with the slide guitar was amazing. Kelsey closed her set with a Waylon Jennings cover “Are You Ready For The Country“. The crowd loved her and certainly wanted to hear more.

Kelsey Waldon left the stage and there was a very relaxed vibe. This is what I felt to be the calm before the storm. The lights had dimmed and a man announced “Please welcome Marty Stuart” and the fans went crazy. Marty came on stage like a true veteran with lots of swagger. I was absolutely in awe of being in the presence of this country legend. Marty started his set with song “I Know You Rider” ,”Whole Lotta Highway”. Marty gave all the fans a brief country music lesson before the next song. Marty had explained one of his favorite songs “Six Days on The Road” was written here by Dave Dudley. Marty didn’t have to have a lot of bright lights and smoke machines for his stage show. His stage show was pure country music from the heart. The twenty song set list included “Mojave”,”Tempted“,”Way Out West” and Marty Robbins cover “El Paso“. What a great concert seeing a legend in such a small intimate venue.
