John Marty Stuart is a Grammy Award-winning American country singer-songwriter born in Philadelphia, Mississippi. He became a defining voice of the ’80s country music with his remarkable talent of seamlessly blending bluegrass, honky-tonky, and rockabilly elements with country-rock music. Stuart nurtured a great love for guitar and mandolin as a child and started out with a bluegrass group The Sullivan Family. After his stints with a couple of other bands, he released his solo album “With a Little Help From My Friends” in 1979. He also briefly worked with Johnny Cash’s backing band but left to pursue his solo career. Stuart finally found his commercial breakthrough with his album “Hillbilly Rock”. From then on he continued to produce multiple hit albums.
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 Grammy winning singer, songwriter and musician is living, breathing country music history. He’s played alongside the masters, from Cash to Lester Flatt.
