After six seasons of The Marty Stuart Show, the country music legend is finally revealing the fate of his beloved TV show.
Each episode, Marty Stuart was joined by his band, The Fabulous Superlatives, radio personality Eddie Stubbs, and sometimes by his wife Connie Smith. The show was home to different country stars each week including Willie Nelson, Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, Brandy Clark, Vince Gill, Charley Pride, Hank Williams III, and many more.
The Marty Stuart Show has been on hiatus due to Stuart’s rigorous touring schedule and other life events, so during a sit down interview with The Boot, they of course asked him about the future of the show.
“I did 156 episodes, me and the Superlatives. The mission statement there was to put our arms around the culture of traditional country music inside the walls of Nashville before it completely disappeared off the edge of planet Earth. And we accomplished that,” he told The Boot. “I think there were maybe five or six names on my wish list for the first season that I never got to, or they couldn’t do it or didn’t want to do it, whatever. But at the end of the 156 episodes and six or seven seasons, you know what? Mission accomplished. Let’s move on.”
“That particular show is in the books now. It’s in history books,” he said before adding that another TV show could possibly be in his future.
For now, Stuart is busy promoting his recently released album Way Out West, and according to his website, is touring until the middle of November.
