A country music hall of famer, five-time Grammy Award winner, and American Music Awards Lifetime Achievement honoree, Marty Stuart knows a thing or two about standing the test of time. Born and raised in Philadelphia, Mississippi, he landed his first big gig in Lester Flatts' band at 13-years-old, and, by 21, he was working on the road and in the studio with Johnny Cash. Though Stuart built his early reputation backing up country and bluegrass royalty, it wasn't long before Nashville recognized him as a star in his own right. Over the course of Stuart's 40-plus years as a country and bluegrass solo artist, he has released more than 20 major label albums and scored platinum sales, hit singles, and just about every honor the industry could bestow along the way.
Known for his traditional style and eclectic combination of rockabilly, honky-tonk, and traditional country music, Stuart is considered one of the genre's most historically minded "new" traditionalists. Rolling Stone called him "one of the world's foremost country experts and archivists."
Altitude, Stuart's exhilarating new album released in 2023, was recorded in Nashville with his longtime band, the Fabulous Superlatives. It is described as showcasing the work of a searcher with an insatiable appetite for growth and reflection, on whose ambition, much like his keen wit and rich imagination, only seems to grow with each and every release.
