With an ever increasing list of
accomplishments and achievements, the high-spirited Mississippi native defies
categorization. Even Marty himself can't pinpoint his "role" and that's
the way he likes it.
"I really don't know where I fit in the music business," he says. "I just
love to work. There are so many things I enjoy doing...The bottom line for me is to make
good music and be the best that I can. I don't worry about where my place is. Actually,
for most of my life I've not fit in and that's fine by me."
Everything about Marty Stuart from the
hand-tailored stage-wear to his ever-present mandolin is instinctive, drawn from
his vast palette of experiences. "I've always been influenced by what I was into at
the moment," he says. "I've always enjoyed artists, whether they are artists who
paint or artists who make music. I love people who are open and people who are evolving at
Marty hasn't assembled what could be the largest collection of country
music memorabilia in the world because it's trendy. He's done it because he has a genuine
interest in preserving the rich heritage of the music he loves so much. He isn't the
president of the Country Music Foundation because it looks good on a resume. He does it
because he wants to help further the Foundation's role in ensuring that generations to
come have a Hall of Fame to visit.

And just when you think Marty's plate is surely overflowing, you recall
that he's still entertaining country fans at concerts nationwide. His high-energy shows
are fun-filled romps that make audiences laugh, clap their hands, stomp their feet, sing
along and beg for more.
In an age of specialization, Marty Stuart continues to "specialize" in
diversity. If there's anyone today who can rival Marty for the title
"Country Music's Renaissance Man," they've yet to make their presence known.
