Artist-In-Residence: Marty Stuart – “Songs That Tell a Story”
Sep 25, 2019
8 PM – 11 PM
The Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum proudly welcomes country music torchbearer Marty Stuart as its 2019 artist-in-residence. Stuart will preside over the Museum’s CMA Theater stage on September 11th, 18th, and 25th, both curating and performing at three one-of-a-kind shows.
The Museum established its annual artist residency in 2003, with a goal of honoring musical masters who have contributed a large and significant body of work to the canon of American popular music. In 2019, Stuart joins a fittingly prestigious group of past honorees that includes Cowboy Jack Clement, Earl Scruggs, Tom T. Hall, Guy Clark, Kris Kristofferson, Jerry Douglas, Vince Gill, Buddy Miller, Connie Smith, Kenny Rogers, Ricky Skaggs, Alan Jackson, Rosanne Cash, Jason Isbell, and 2018 artist-in-residence Miranda Lambert.
Each artist-in-residence is invited to use the Museum’s performance venues to create unique musical experiences.
SEPTEMBER 25: “Songs That Tell a Story”
Harlan Howard famously referred to country music as “three chords and the truth.” Stuart will pay homage to country music’s musical stories with an acoustic show. This line-up will feature a number of Nashville’s most influential and revered storytellers including John Prine, Doug Kershaw, Dallas Frazier, Brandy Clark and the Fabulous Superlatives.*
