Personalities | Marty Stuart | New Country & The Neo-Traditionalists

(Vocals, guitar, mandolin, songwriter, b. 1958)

Aged only 13, Mississippi-born Stuart joined bluegrass legend Lester Flatt and Nashville Grass for six years until Flatt’s death. After this he enjoyed a six-year spell in The Johnny Cash Show. His first significant solo album was Busy Bee Café (1982). The title track of Hillbilly Rock (1990) largely sums up his musical stance, especially when in 1992, he began working with rising star Travis Tritt. In 2005, Stuart – who has done much to promote Nashville music, released Souls’ Chapel – the first album on his own MCA-connected label, Superlatone.
