Contemporary Country rocker Marty Stuart and His Fabulous Superlatives will return to the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall in support of their brand new album, “Way Out West”. 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. Stuart is a five time GRAMMY-winner, platinum recording artist, Lifetime Achievement Award recipient from the Americana Music Association, Grand Ole Opry star, country music archivist, photographer, musician, and songwriter. While he’s too gracious to admit it himself, Stuart is living, breathing country-music history.
Stuart continues to record and release keenly relevant music, records that honor country’s rich legacy while advancing it into the future. “Way Out West”, his 18th studio album, hits both of those marks. Produced by Mike Campbell (of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers), the album is a cinematic tour-de-force, an exhilarating musical journey through the California desert that solidifies Stuart as a truly visionary artist. Opening with a Native American prayer, a nod to Stuart’s affinity for the indigenous people, particularly the Lakota, “Way Out West” transports the listener to the lonely but magical American West. It is, in its own way, musical peyote.
