In case you missed it, five-time GRAMMY winner, Country Music Hall of Famer and AMA Lifetime Achievement Award recipient Marty Stuart released his new song “Sitting Alone” from his forthcoming album, Altitude, out on May 19 via Snakefarm.
Stuart is currently in the midst of a nationwide headlining tour that resumes this Friday, March 24 in St. Louis, MO before performing at Stagecoach Festival on April 29 and hitting the road with Chris Stapleton this summer.
About the song, Stuart explains:
The announcement of his first new album in more than six years finds Stuart on the heels of a string of professional and personal achievements in an already unprecedented career. Late last year, Marty Stuart and His Fabulous Superlatives were inducted into the Musicians Hall of Fame and he celebrated his 50th year in Nashville and 30th anniversary as a Grand Ole Opry member. In December, Stuart and his wife Connie Smith kicked off the grand re-opening of the historic and recently renovated Ellis Theater in his hometown of Philadelphia, Mississippi, which Stuart has been working to re-open for seven years as part of his Congress of Country Music.
Recorded in Nashville with his longtime band The Fabulous Superlatives – Kenny Vaughan, Harry Stinson and Chris Scruggs – the collection finds Stuart picking up where he left off on 2017’s Way Out West, exploring the cosmic country landscape. Written primarily on the road, the collection was inspired in large part by Stuart’s 2018 tour supporting Byrds co-founders Roger McGuinn and Chris Hillman, who reunited for the 50th anniversary of their seminal Sweetheart Of The Rodeo album.
Marty Stuart’s Late Night Jam — an annual all-star after-hours show that marks the unofficial kick-off to CMA Fest week in Nashville — will celebrate its 20th anniversary on June 7 at the Ryman Auditorium. Last year, the event featured Billy Strings, Emmylou Harris and Marcus King, and has previously featured Brothers Osborne, Chris Stapleton, Roger McGuinn and Chris Hillman, Margo Price, Maren Morris, Neko Case, Dolly Parton and many more. More details will be announced soon.
