Artist-In-Residence: Marty Stuart – “The Pilgrim”
Sep 11, 2019
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 11: “The Pilgrim”
Marty Stuart will celebrate the rerelease of his landmark 10th studio album The Pilgrim during the September 11 show. The Pilgrim, which showcases Stuart’s songwriting and instrumental talents, tells the story of a man from Stuart’s hometown of Philadelphia, Mississippi. He will celebrate this 20-year milestone with a host of musical guests.
