Country-music icon and Grammy winner Marty Stuart takes the stage at the Crockett Civic Center on March 7 at 7:30 p.m.

Stuart and his band the Fabulous Superlatives are on tour and making a stop in Crockett. This show is presented by the Piney Woods Fine Arts Association as part of its Signature Series of events.

For more than 40 years, the five-time Grammy winning multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, photographer and historian has built a rich legacy. On his latest release with his band The Fabulous Superlatives, the double-disc “Saturday Night & Sunday Morning,” Stuart captures all the authentic neon and stained-glass hues of country music – from love and sex to heartache and hardship to family and God – in 23 tracks.

“I've always thought that country music had a really unique relationship with gospel music,” Stuart says.

“It is interesting to me that country stars can sing drinking and cheating songs authentically, then at some point during the evening or the broadcast, take their hats off and say, 'Friends, here's our gospel song.' If it’s the right messenger it seamlessly flows. That's a time-honored tradition, from Jimmie Rodgers to Hank Williams to Johnny Cash. Rogue prophets and rogue preachers. That is my world.”

Stuart has received has the Americana Music Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award for Performing and also has a star on the Nashville’s Music City Walk of Fame.

Tickets for Marty Stuart and The Fabulous Superlatives start at $32 and are available online at www.pwfaa.org. or by calling the Piney Woods Fine Arts Association office at 936.544-4276, Mondays through Fridays from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
