Platinum Recording Artist to Play Performing Arts Center
For the City Times
Marty Stuart and His Fabulous Superlatives are coming to town. Friday, Oct. 28, at 7:30 pm, the place to be is the Performing Arts Center of Wisconsin Rapids.
Join us! We guarantee you won’t be able to sit still as you sway to their four-part harmonies in one song and rock your bones with honky-tonk on the next.
The five-time Grammy winner is a platinum recording artist and Grand Ole Opry star. He also has his own TV show. In his spare time, Stuart is a country music archivist, Southern culture historian, photographer, and charismatic force of nature.
Stuart explains how the variety of his combined styles came about, in part due to listening to a local Mississippi radio station. “In the morning, they signed on with country music and farm reports. At noon, they played gospel music for an hour. Then afternoon was rock ’n’ roll and top 40. Late afternoon was soul. And they signed off with easy listening. I thought everybody’s radio station was like that. It was kind of a reflection of how Mississippi is. The birthplace of America’s music. The church house is the common denominator, and every form of music has a touch of the blues. So I come from that perspective. Traditional country touched me the deepest, but all of these other styles were relevant to me. It felt like just another day at the office.”
