(Wheeling, WV – March 13, 2013) – Five-time Grammy award winner, Marty Stuart & His Fabulous Superlatives are scheduled to perform live in Wheeling Island Hotel-Casino-Racetrack Showroom on Friday, April 12 at 8pm.
Tickets are on sale at www.ticketmaster.com, by calling 1-800-745-3000 or at the Wheeling Island gift shop. Reserved seating ticket prices are $27 and $32.
Marty Stuart is a five time GRAMMY-winner, platinum recording artist, Grand Ole Opry star, country music archivist, Southern culture historian, photographer, musician, songwriter, TV show host, charismatic force of nature, and country music fan.
Stuart received his first Grammy award in 1993 for Best Country Collaboration with Vocals when he partnered with Travis Tritt on “The Whiskey Ain’t Workin.’” He received this award again in 1999 and has also received three Grammy awards for Best Country Instrumental Performance in 1994, 2002 and 2011.
Stuart is best known for his top ten hits “Tempted,” “This One’s Gonna Hurt You” and “Burn Me Down.”
Since starting out singing gospel as a child, Stuart, 54, has spent over four decades celebrating American roots music with a missionary's zeal. His teenage years on tour with bluegrass legend Lester Flatt in the '70s were followed by six years in Johnny Cash's band during the '80s and a chart-topping tenure as a solo artist in the '90s.
The turn of the century saw Stuart looking inward to make deeply felt records paying homage to his love of vintage gospel, his Native American passions, and as always, his core -- foot-stompin', tail-shakin', honky tonkin', rockin' hillbilly music. His latest musical oeuvre is ably supported by the coolest cats in Nashville - his backing band, The Fabulous Superlatives: guitarist Kenny Vaughan, drummer Harry Stinson, and bassist Paul Martin.
Stuart's zest for every conceivable flavor of country music is also seen regularly by TV viewers these days, on RFD-TV's "The Marty Stuart Show", a musical variety show and the number one program on the network.
So, what's next? As musicologist Peter North cites, "Marty Stuart seems wrapped in his destiny at this point in time. Not only as country music's most notable ambassador/caretaker, but as its main archetypical crusader. He has without question evolved into one of the most important roots musicians and visionaries in America."
Stay tuned.
