Country singer-musician Marty Stuart is an odd cat. Part indefatigable tradition-bearer, part obsessive, tireless champion of the idiom's surviving originators, there is no one in Nashville quite like him. A musical wunderkind who grew up on the bluegrass festival circuit and later broke out with his 1990 hit “Hillbilly Rock,” Stuart has enjoyed some significant collaborations, notably getting ornery honky-tonk renegade Merle Haggard into an all-acoustic mood for their 2007 Bluegrass Sessions and, that same year, working as producer on Opry legend Porter Wagoner's beautiful, elegaic Wagonmaster, the veteran country star's final release. With L.A.'s own ferociously talented picker Tony Gilkyson also on the bill, this rates as a formidable country music jubilee.
