There is no doubt that Marty Stuart is one of the biggest names to pave the way in the country music industry. And, in recognition for being one of the greatest torchbearers and most enduring talents, the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum has dubbed Stuart to be its 16th artist-in-residence.
Marty Stuart’s Shows
Stuart will perform in several themed-shows, starting in September. Dates include the 11th (The Pilgrim), the 18th (Psychedelic Jam-Bo-Ree), and the 25th (Songs That Tell a Story.)
Tickets for all three shows go on sale to the public Friday, April 19th at 10 AM and can be purchased through the CMA Theater’s website. There is a pre-sale for the tickets, starting on the 17th of April at 10 AM and ends on the 18th of April at 10 PM
The Artist-in-Residence Series
Established in 2003, the museum’s artist-in-residence series honors a musical master who has contributed a large and significant body of work to American popular music. The artist-in-residence is invited to use the museum’s performance venues to create unique musical experiences.
He is following the footsteps of several country music luminaries, including Kris Kristofferson, Rosanne Cash, Alan Jackson, and more. Cowboy Jack Clement opened the series way back in 2003, and Stuart follows the 2018 artist-in-residence Miranda Lambert.
Kyle Young, CEO of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum had high praise for the trailblazer.
“Marty Stuart has made country music his life’s work, and I cannot imagine the music without him. He has preserved its history, photographed its legends and performed its music with integrity. Marty’s music reaches beyond traditional country, drawing influence from genres including Americana, southern gospel and hillbilly rock. Marty’s residency will no doubt deliver truly unique and memorable experiences.”
Stuart also had some great words for the honor.
“The ultimate destination in the world of country music is the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. The Hall of Fame is our greatest treasure chest and a place that represents the heart and soul of our culture. Some of my most cherished memories are of events I’ve either witnessed or performed in at the Hall of Fame. It’s an honor to be the artist-in-residence this September. Hopefully, at the end of the run, the past, present and the future of country music will have been touched upon, leaving in its wake three nights of magic to be remembered at the Hall of Fame.”
