With legends like George Jones, Johnny Cash and Merle Haggard all passed on, country music purists often echo the question Jones himself asked: “Who’s going to fill their shoes?” The answer, in part, is Marty Stuart. While he’s too gracious to admit it himself, the Grammy-winning singer, songwriter and musician is living, breathing country-music history. He’s played alongside the masters, from Johnny Cash to Doc Watson to Lester Flatt, who discovered him, before going solo. He built his fanbase not only on the strength of his voice, but on his hotshot guitar playing too.

Now Marty Stuart and His Fabulous Superlatives are coming back to the Paramount ready for a good time. Their new album, Way Out West, his 18th studio album, pays tribute to Marty’s life-long fascination with California. The album is a cinematic tour-de-force, an exhilarating musical journey through the California desert that solidifies Stuart as a truly visionary artist.
