Known for both his traditional style, and eclectic merging of rockabilly, honky tonk, and traditional country music, Stuart enjoyed his greatest stretch of chart success in the early 1990s when he recorded for MCA. He had top-10 solo singles such as “Hillbilly Rock,” “Tempted” and “Burn Me Down”.
Marty Stuart is on fire creatively. He has recorded the four best albums of his career with his band, the Fabulous Superlatives, and has put on some of the best shows of his career. But he will be the first to tell you that his current achievements would never have been him here. And he never would have made it if not for the mentors who showed the way and the partners who possible if he hadn’t walked every single mile of the highway that got walked beside him. Those are his “Compadres,” and his story can”t be told without them.
