Wiki

Marty Stuart (born September 30, 1958 as John Martin Stuart), is an American country music singer, known for both his traditional style, and eclectic merging of rockabilly, honky tonk, and traditional country music. In the early 1990s, he had a successful string of Country hits.

Born as John Martin Stuart, Marty Stuart has become known as one of Country Music's most eclectic artists, because he performs and records several widely diverse types of country music. That is one of his reasons for his success in the 1990s, just when Traditionalism was making a comeback in Country Music.

From an early age, he was obsessed with Country Music. He was so obsessed, in fact, that he taught himself how to play the guitar and mandolin. At the age of 12, Stuart started performing with the Bluegrass group The Sullivans. He later met Lester Flatt bandmember Roland White. White invited Stuart to play with him and the Nashville Grass at the Labor Day gig in Delaware in 1972. After this, White asked him to join the band permanently and Stuart accepted. This made White responsible for the rest of Stuart's education. Marty stayed with Lester Flatt until Flatt broke up the band in 1978 due to his failing health.
