IMHO...

RE" "Rock Star" comment-- I see how you could get that impression, but MS has the chops his attitude suggests and he is the front man for the band he has crafted. I do not see how they could squeeze so much music into the 1/2 hour without his big-balls presentation style.

When you see the old YouTube videos you also see that back then he was clearly less confident and that he was trying to form, then, the band he has now. The old instrumenation and sound-mix is much the same as now, but the skill and punch are not quite there, in the old videos.

This is a new show that he is just now learning how to "lead." TV hosting is very different from big-arena stage MC presence just as stage acting (large proscenium) is different from movie acting (large screen) which is is different from TV acting (small screen). So I hope you will continue to look in.

Cannot get that music mix anywhere else I am aware of, all in a neat 1/2 hour package.

No, I didn't mean it that way at all. I'm just so thrilled-- to see his respect for so many folkie-loved styles showcased on a weekly basis-- that I'm gushing and burbling. Not the first time I've done THAT, either. :~)

I'm very selective in what I support, and when I see something I can support, I go all out.

he's on telly over here flogging the Time Life country dvd collection - which I might get for my birthday.

I don't think he's appeared over here since that Outlaw Indian (or was it Indian Outlaw) record

He's gone grey.

OK, I'm not gonna answer every post (aRGUE WITH EITHER), BUT IT IS A REALLY GOOD SHOW AND IT CAN TEACH US A LOT ABOUT

damn capslock!!!

... about what CAN be done to promote folk music.

The Wilburn Brothers show airing now is quite dated, but it was not so different in their time and also 1/2 hour packed with good stuff. They also used theirs to showcase people, including the Carter family's later incarnation. Max's radio show-- another parallel.

Marty Stuart has had a strong interest in music roots and country traditions since he was quite young. He has personally collected memorabilia and donated or loaned items to the Country Music Museum and a display of some of his collection was located in Little Rock, Arkansas for a time. He also an extensive photo collection of a lot of the old timers. I am not surprised at all by the nature of this show. I certainly hope that it is successful.

Marty Stuart is a superb musician and historian of country/old-timey and bluegrass, as is Ranger Doug Green of Riders in the the Sky.

Marty is a throwback, or rather, he is continuing the tradition of country musicians of the 40's, 50's & 60's actually dressing up and putting on a show for their audiences; not coming out in ratty T-shirts and torn jeans. Porter Wagoner, Dolly Parton, Little Jimmy Dickens, Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs, Hank Snow, et al wouldn't have dreamed of appearing before an audience looking as though they had just climbed out of bed.

I purchased the Time-Life DVD collection and it contains some wonderful old clips of Country legends and Hall-of-Famers - all excellent musicians and singers who knew how to entertain their public.

Thanks for posting Susan, and merry Christmas.

Seamus

I agree with Seamus- these modern day country singers with their torn jeans and sleeveless t-shirts turn me off. It's as if they're showing compempt for their audiences by dressing like derelicts. It's nice to see Mr. Stuart and his band dressing the way country singers used to. The few episodes I watched on the website were a pleasure to view.

Marty Stuart's first record, "Busy Bee Cafe", has the following musicians: Johnny Cash, T. Michael Coleman, Jerry Douglas, Carl Jackson, Alan O'Bryant, Earl Scruggs, Doc Watson, Merle Watson, and also includes an instrumental tribute to the late Clerence White. He is likely to have guest performers on his TV show as progressive as Bela Fleck and other New Acoustic folks. It should be an adventure each week to tune in and find out .

he's a good hearted man, talented and respectful of the roots... easy going, comical... sounds like the best of Country to me... we were talking and listening to a guitar picker once, sidestage at some festival, right into it.... when he sees his bus pulling out without him, he said, "Sorry man, I gotta run" which he did...

so here's to his glitter and twang and doing what he can to keep the music authentic...

Ya know what is REALLY funny is to ALSO see the old shows from the Wilburn Brothers that RFD is re-running nowadays, and see the exact same format and eclectic mix looking so "dated." ?!?!?

what's the funny part? Wouldn't it be funnier if a show filmed 40 years ago looked the same as one being shot now?

The funny part is seeing something old and thinking it's so corny, and seeing the same format just-made and not thinking it's corny. I just find that funny. Take the costumes for instance. I think the Superlatives have GREAT threads, but I think the band backing the Wilburns look like Mr. Rogers. And both shows have the regulation "funny" banjo player in odd costume, complete with "rural" jokes, but I like the one now and the old one looks silly.

Yet the goals and format of the shows, and the quality of the musicianship, are pretty close.

But that's just me.

I never cared much for 'Hee-Haw'... kind of like Laff-In with bales of hay and cornpone... Buck Owens was like a parody of himself with that red-white and blue guitar and big hat.... regular Gordy Tapp had his own show in Canada in the 50s called Country Hoedown which had a good format and guests... he simply transplanted his alter-ego Cousin Clem to the Hee-Haw show later on....
anyhow I'll give credit to Marty for taking a run at it.... he knows a lot of quality artists, well-known or obscure, who will be happy to contribute... it's refreshing to enjoy something outside the mainstream pablum that Nashville is so adept at dishing out...

thanks for posting the link

Last week Marty's guest was silvery Charlie Daniels. This week, "Pop Goes the Country"'s guest was brownhaired, young Charlie Daniels, as an opening act for the week's "big" name.

THEN it occurred to me that our own band has a joke-cracking, "relaxed"-dress banjo player. In fact he started our band. I never knew we'd been formatted! :~)
