Marty Stuart & His Fabulous Superlatives
New Album ‘Altitude’ – New Song “Country Star”
Album Out May 19, 2023
Five-time Grammy winner, Country Music Hall of Famer and AMA Lifetime Achievement Award recipient Marty Stuart has released the official video for his single “Country Star”, from his forthcoming album Altitude which will be released on May 19 via Snakefarm.
“My favorite video director in Nashville is Reid Long. We’ve done several videos together and Reid directed ‘Country Star.’ Consider this, the nation’s most superlative band, go-go dancers, Clarence White’s guitar, a jangling Rickenbacker twelve string guitar, full blown rhinestone suites, and groovy shades all wrapped up in a great song. We did our part. Your turn: watch it. I promise I can make you smile.”Marty Stuart
Recorded in Nashville with his longtime band The Fabulous Superlatives – Kenny Vaughan, Harry Stinson and Chris Scruggs – the collection reportedly finds Stuart picking up where he left off on 2017’s excellent Way Out West (read our review), exploring a cosmic country landscape populated by dreamers and drifters, misfits and angels, honky-tonk heroes and lonesome lovers. Written primarily on the road, the collection was inspired in large part by Stuart’s 2018 tour supporting Byrds co-founders Roger McGuinn and Chris Hillman, who reunited for the 50th anniversary of their seminal Sweetheart Of The Rodeo album.
Stuart is currently in the midst of a US headlining tour – see dates below (Listening Through The Lens will be catching their show at the Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion.
