The Marty Stuart Show

Airing twice weekly on RFD …
Airing twice weekly on RFD since its debut in 2008, The Marty Stuart Show highlights the best of new and classic country music, showcasing the best in blue grass with featuring appearances by Mel Tillis, Jimmy Dickens, John Anderson, and Charley Pride to only name a few. Not to mention, you'll see wonderful performances from Marty himself, his wife, Connie Smith, banjoist Leroy Troy, and of course Marty's band, The Fabulous Superlatives. Marty had begun his music career at the age of 14; by 22 he was a member of Johnny Cash's band, and in the 90's he won 4 Grammies and dominated Country's top ten with a string of classics such as "Hillbilly Rock," "Burn Me Down," and "This One's Gonna Hurt You." The production is laid back and appeals to a large audience of Country fans. Admittedly, there is a bias toward the Mountain/Bluegrass country, but the music is still wonderful and sticks to its veins and roots. You'll reminisce back on the early days of country classics such as Flatt and Scruggs, Hee Haw, and the Porter Wagoner Show.

The Beverly Hillbillies is an American situation comedy television series broadcast on CBS from 1962 to 1971. The show had an ensemble cast featuring Buddy Ebsen, Irene Ryan, Donna Douglas, and Max Baer Jr. as the Clampetts, a poor backwoods family from the Ozarks region who move to posh Beverly Hills, California after striking oil on their land. The show was produced by Filmways and was created by writer Paul Henning. It was followed by two other Henning-inspired "country cousin" series on CBS: Petticoat Junction and its spin-off Green Acres, which reversed the rags-to-riches, country-to-city model of The Beverly Hillbillies.
