Marty Stuart, the 2019 Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum’s artist-in-residence, took the stage at the museum’s CMA Theater for the first of three performances. Stuart is the museum’s 16th artist-in-residence.
Stuart celebrated the re-release of his landmark 10th studio album, The Pilgrim (1999), which showcases his songwriting and instrumental talents and tells the story of a man from Stuart’s hometown of Philadelphia, Mississippi. He performed this 20-year milestone with a host of musical guests including Country Music Hall of Fame member Emmylou Harris, Country Music Hall of Fame member Connie Smith, Gary Carter, Chris Stapleton, Pam Tillis, Kristin Wilkinson with her Superlative Strings, and Stuart’s band the Fabulous Superlatives. Stuart will perform again in the CMA Theater on Wednesday, Sept. 18 and Wednesday, Sept. 25. To purchase tickets for these upcoming shows, visit CMATheater.com.
