By Stephanie Smittle

SATURDAY 12/7. UA Pulaski Technical College, Center for the Humanities and Arts. $20-$100.

$20 – $100

The craft of show business was alive and well when Marty Stuart took the stage in front of his former bandmate Johnny Cash’s boyhood home in Dyess in October for the Johnny Cash Heritage Festival. Stuart, with longtime colleagues and fellow virtuosos Chris Scruggs, Harry Stinson and Kenny Vaughn, appeared in matching rhinestone-outfitted black suits, studding their set with playful jabs at each other, fiery solos and a purist’s sensibility for bluegrass. The fact that Stuart’s been performing since he was 13 seems not to have made him world-weary, but quite the opposite: He’s a cheerful showman who champions the dignity and depth of country music, and he’s a charismatic bandleader to boot. As for his backing band The Fabulous Superlatives, it’s an ensemble of soloists who can hold their own when it’s their turn in the spotlight (and everyone gets a turn), but who blend seamlessly as a collective. At this concert, Stuart resurrects his 1999 record “The Pilgrim,” a concept album that serves perfectly as a bookend to his trippy, mystical 2017 release, “Way Out West.” Get tickets at uaptc.edu/charts.
