Marty Stuart and His Fabulous Superlatives

Marty Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives have won the award for “Duo/Group of the Year” at the Americana Music Association’s 16th Annual Americana Honors & Awards. Stuart and his band performed a stirring rendition of “Time Don’t Wait,” off their latest album Way Out West, before being recognized as the top duo/group in Americana music. Previous winners of this prestigious award include The Avett Brothers, Drive-By Truckers, and Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell. In 2005 the Americana Music Association awarded Marty Stuart with the Lifetime Achievement Award for Performance.

Stuart recently announced fall tour dates with Chris Stapleton. Stuart will be a special guest opener for arena dates in Baton Rouge, San Antonio, Bossier City, Austin, and Grand Rapids. Stuart also announced additional dates on his headlining tour, including a string of dates in the UK, in support of Way Out West, his 18th studio album (full dates below). Tickets for all these shows are on sale now and can be found here.

Marty Stuart released Way Out West on Superlatone earlier this year. The album was conceived as a love letter to the promised land of California by one of Country music’s living legends, who has played with everyone from Johnny Cash to Lester Flatt. NPR Music proclaims: “Way Out West is Marty Stuart’s album-length paean to the myth and magic of the American West. It finds country’s stalwart neo-traditionalist turning cosmic cowboy for a journey through the Joshua trees, shadowy canyons and desert dreams that tantalize travelers with the promise of a golden shore on the other side.” Way Out West is available on CD, vinyl, and digitally here.

Fans of Marty Stuart’s music can now find a historic timeline of his musical career on Stuart’s website. The timeline is an interactive way to for users to navigate his milestones and achievements and includes never before seen before videos, photos—including the last photo of Johnny Cash ever taken— and stories that encompass his time touring with Flatt, Scruggs and Cash through his work as a solo artist.

Produced by Mike Campbell (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers), and featuring the Fabulous Superlatives —guitarist Kenny Vaughan, drummer Harry Stinson and new member, bassist Chris Scruggs– Marty’s longtime band, which NPR Music said could “melt your heart with four-part harmonies, rock your bones with honky tonk, and dazzle you with picking worthy of their name,” Way Out West is a cinematic tour-de-force.

Marty Stuart is a five time GRAMMY-winner, platinum recording artist, Lifetime Achievement Award recipient from the Americana Music Association, Grand Ole Opry star, country music archivist, photographer, musician, and songwriter. Since starting out singing gospel as a child, Stuart has spent over four decades celebrating American roots music. His teenage years on tour with bluegrass legend Lester Flatt in the ’70s were followed by six years in Johnny Cash’s band in the ’80s, and a chart-topping tenure as a solo artist in the ’90s. Stuart hosts a Late Night Jam at The Ryman, a yearly tradition which kicks off the CMA Music Festival, with recent guests including Dolly Parton, Jerry Lee Lewis, Neko Case, Eric Church, Chris Stapleton, Maren Morris, Dan Auerbach and many more.

The National Reserve

Imagine driving down the long, straight roads of the deep Midwest. The sun is setting in front of you and on the radio is something soulful yet gritty, with just a hint of twang that is the sound of American roots. This is The National Reserve.

The band is a labor of love from singer and guitarist Sean Walsh. In each song you can almost hear the years of driving long hours to play gigs for barely enough money to cover gas, all because there is nothing better than being on stage playing rock and roll music. Their music echoes back to another era, an analog age when just a guitar, an amp, and cord were enough. This authenticity gives The National Reserve a refreshingly modern sound, one that fits right in line with today’s take on the Americana lineage. With two EP’s under their belt, the first full length album is nearing completion with a release planned for early 2018. Until then, The National Reserve will continue to put in the miles, leaving their mark along the way.
