Marty Stuart, a five-time Grammy winner and platinum recording artist, will return to the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts on Saturday, Aug. 29. This time, he’s bringing his wife and well-known country music singer, Connie Smith. The show will begin at 7:30 p.m. and tickets are $32 each.
Marty Stuart is best known for his success in country music, but he has strong roots in gospel and bluegrass music, too. He is a selftaught guitar and mandolin player which led him to join Johnny Cash’s backup band where he played for five years before breaking out on his own. Thirty-five years later, this singer, songwriter, photographer, and historian continues to lead the charge in preserving the roots, culture, and heritage of traditional country music.
