Marty Stuart at Kauffman Center on Thursday, October 6th

October 6 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Country Music Hall of Famer and five-time Grammy winner Marty Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives are coming to Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts on Thursday, October 6th!

Marty Stuart recently shared his cover of Tommy Cash’s “Six White Horses” the ninth offering from Songs I Sing In The Dark, a collection of songs recorded acoustically at Marty’s former home outside of Nashville. Watch the video for “‘Six White Horses” here.

Stuart is currently raising funds and awareness for The Marty Stuart Congress of Country Music (MSCCM), a cultural center, in his hometown of Philadelphia, Mississippi which will celebrate the rich heritage of country music through live musical performance and educational programming. This tribute to the culture and rural ethics of America will be presented in a world-class country music museum and performing arts center. Marty Stuart has assembled a collection that spans over 20,000 pieces to tell a rich, emotional, and personal story of the lives of our common heritage.

The $30 million project will create a 50,000+ square foot campus featuring the historic and recently renovated Ellis Theater, a newly constructed museum, classrooms, a community hall, meeting and event space, and a rooftop performance venue. MSCCM will embrace the roots of country music in its educational curriculum and programming. Changing displays will include internationally travelled artifacts and memorabilia, photography, outsider/folk art and Native American crafts. These art forms represent country music’s history and foreshadow its future. Musical programming will feature both legendary stars and the emerging artists of tomorrow.
