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."
His greatest commercial success came in the first half of the 1990s on MCA
Records Nashville. Stuart has recorded more than 20 studio albums and has
charted more than 30 times on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts.

In 1991, Stuart co-wrote a song with
Travis Tritt called
"The Whiskey Ain't Workin'".
Stuart won his second Grammy Award in 1993, in the category of
Best Country Instrumental Performance, as one of several featured artists on
Asleep at the
Wheel's cover of "Red Wing" on their 1993 album, Tribute to the Music
of Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys.
In 1999, Stuart released an album called The Pilgrim.
It charted the single that year with "Red, Red Wine and Cheatin' Songs". A
concept album based around a love triangle, the album featured vocal
contributions from Pam Tillis,
George Jones, and
Emmylou Harris, as well as a poem recited by Johnny Cash.
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 Stuart 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 is a
president of the Country Music Foundation.
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.
Stuart has also won five Grammy Awards out of 16 nominations.
He is known for his combination of rockabilly, country rock, and bluegrass music
influences, his frequent collaborations and cover songs, and his distinctive
