Five time GRAMMY-winner Marty Stuart took to New York City and the Ed Sullivan Theatre for a performance on the “Late Show with David Letterman,” with his band the Fabulous Superlatives. The group played a song off of Stuart’s latest release, a double-record, Saturday Night & Sunday Morning.

The album features more than a dozen original compositions ranging from Stuart’s signature hillbilly rock to ballads and hymns, plus Marty’s takes on traditional songs such as Hank Williams’ “I’m Blue, I’m Lonesome,” the Stalter Brothers’ “Firing Line,” and George Jones’ “Old Old House.” The Staple Singers join Stuart to open ‘Sunday Morning’ with a stunning, lush rendition of their 1956 hit “Uncloudy Day.”

Stuart spent his teenage years on tour with bluegrass legend Lester Flatt in the ’70s and then, 6 years in Johnny Cash’s band during the ’80s and a chart-topping tenure as a solo artist in the ’90s.
