The Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian will feature a free acoustic concert with country music legend, Marty Stuart and His Fabulous Superlatives Sunday, June 29, at 2 p.m. in the museum’s Potomac Atrium.

Stuart is a five-time Grammy-winner, platinum recording artist, Grand Ole Opry star, country music archivist, Southern culture historian, photographer, musician, songwriter, TV show host, charismatic force of nature and country music fan. 

Since starting out singing gospel as a child, Stuart, 54, has spent more than four decades celebrating American roots music with zeal. His teenage years on tour with bluegrass legend Lester Flatt in the ’70s were followed by six years in Johnny Cash’s band during the ’80s and a chart-topping tenure as a solo artist in the ’90s. 

The turn of the century marked Stuart looking inward, making records that paid homage to his love of vintage gospel, his Native American passions, and his core foot-stompin’, honky tonkin’, rockin’ hillbilly music. He is supported by his backing band, The Fabulous Superlatives: guitarist Kenny Vaughan, drummer Harry Stinson and bassist Paul Martin.

Stuart’s zest for every conceivable flavor of country music is also seen regularly by TV viewers on RFD-TV’s “The Marty Stuart Show,” a musical variety show and the No. 1 program on the network.
