Marty Stuart and His Fabulous Superlatives Slated for Missoula Concert
Award-winning, Country Music Hall of Fame inductee, Marty Stuart and His Fabulous Superlatives will headline The Wilma in Missoula on Friday, April 8, 2022.
Early in his musical journey, Marty Stuart was touring with country greats Lester Flatt and Johnny Cash. That alone could’ve been enough to mint his place in country music history, but Marty was just getting started. He began to concentrate more on his solo work in the 1980s and has since released a laundry list of albums and singles.

A platinum recording artist, Marty also received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Americana Music Association. In 2020, he was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame as Modern Era Artist.

About Marty Stuart
With legends like George Jones, Johnny Cash and Merle Haggard all passed on, country music purists often echo the question Jones himself asked: “Who’s going to fill their shoes?” The answer, in part, is Marty Stuart.
While he’s too gracious to admit it himself, the Grammy-winning singer, songwriter and musician is living, breathing country-music history. He’s played alongside the masters, from Cash to Lester Flatt, who discovered him; been a worldwide ambassador for Nashville, Bakersfield and points in between; and safeguarded country’s most valuable traditions and physical artifacts. Including its literal shoes: Stuart counts the brogan of Carter Family patriarch A.P. Carter and an assortment of Cash’s black boots among his vast collection of memorabilia.
But most importantly, Stuart continues to record and release keenly relevant music, records that honor country’s rich legacy while advancing it into the future. Way Out West, his 18th studio album, hits both of those marks. Produced by Mike Campbell (of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers), the album is a cinematic tour-de-force, an exhilarating musical journey through the California desert that solidifies Stuart as a truly visionary artist.
