Marty Stuart Announces Lineup For 10th Annual Late Night Jam
May 6, 2011 at 10:16 AM (PT)
Country great MARTY STUART will host a special 10th Anniversary LATE NIGHT JAM on JUNE 8th beginning at 10p (CT) at NASHVILLE’s historic RYMAN AUDITORIUM. Country music icons DOLLY PARTON, MEL TILLIS and CONNIE SMITH, along with THE QUEBE SISTERS BAND, DOUG KERSHAW and more surprise guests will be joining STUART and his FABULOUS SUPERLATIVES for this year’s event. Proceeds will benefit MUSICARES with a portion also going to DOLLY PARTON’s IMAGINATION LIBRARY.
“It's hard to believe that the LATE NIGHT JAM is 10 years old,” said STUART. “I can't help but think back on the first one. I was nervous; pacing and hoping that we'd have enough people show up. The show ended up being a sell-out and we’ve been going strong ever since. That first show was over 25,000 people ago, and it was also many good deeds ago from MUSICARES, and a lot of really magical performances ago from some of my dearest musical friends. Every year I say, ‘How can I top that show?’ Somehow it happens and good things result from it. This year will be no different.”
In other MARTY news, his show THE MARTY STUART SHOW, continues to bring traditional Country music into living rooms every SATURDAY night on RFD-TV. Upcoming episodes will feature BRAD PAISLEY, OLD CROW MEDICINE SHOW, KEITH URBAN, PAUL SHAFFER and TRAVIS TRITT.
