Marty Stuart & His Fabulous Superlatives

Country legend brings musical legacy to Billings April 7 and Missoula April 8

On Stage

Grammy-winning country legend Marty Stuart and His Fabulous Superlatives perform April 7 in Billings and April 8 in Missoula. Touring to support his 18th studio album Way Out West, the five-time Grammy-awarded Stuart continues to write, record, and release keenly relevant music that honors country’s rich legacy while advancing it in to the future.

Produced by Mike Campbell (of Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers), Way Out West is a cinematic tour-de-force, an exhilarating musical journey through the California desert that solidifies Stuart as a truly visionary artist. Opening with a Native American prayer — a nod to Stuart’s affinity for Indigenous people, particularly the Lakota — Way Out West transports the listener to the lonely but magical American West.

When it comes to transforming country songs into tangible experience, Stuart has a secret weapon: His Fabulous Superlatives, consisting of guitarist Kenny Vaughan, drummer Harry Stinson, and bassist Chris Scruggs.

Stuart has played alongside the masters, from Johnny Cash to Lester Flatt, who discovered him; and has been a worldwide ambassador for Nashville, Bakersfield, and points in between. He’s also safeguarded country’s most valuable traditions and physical artifacts, including its literal shoes: Stuart counts the brogan of Carter Family patriarch A.P. Carter and an assortment of Cash’s black boots among his vast collection of memorabilia.

Stuart has landed 30 times on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts. His work has garnered him many accolades including five Grammy wins and 15 nominations. A platinum recording artist, he also received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Americana Music Association. In 2020, he was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame as a Modern Era Artist.
