Connie Smith 
Her genius for phrasing, perfect diction and an extensive vocal range has delighted fans and fellow country singers for decades. Considered one of the best country female vocalists ever, Connie Smith loves to sing and that intensity captivates her listeners when she belts out a song. Smith strikes a traditional country mood that keeps her music in listener’s hearts. In 2012, she was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame – county music’s highest honor. Connie is a frequent performer at the Grand Ole Opry and has been called “The Rolls-Royce of Country Singers.”

 

 

Marty Stuart
Marty Stuart has been capturing life and sharing it through country music for over four decades. Stuart was thirteen when he began playing mandolin with the legendary Lester Flatt. He went on to tour with Johnny Cash and played alongside country legends Bill Monroe, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins. In the 1990’s, Stuart decided to reset his image and form his backup band, The Fabulous Superlatives. Stuart’s latest album “Saturday Night & Sunday Morning with the Fabulous Superlatives” offers country music with a kick of Americana.
