Marty Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives at the Troubadour in West Hollywood, CA

Country star Marty Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives played the Troubadour in West Hollywood, CA on Jan. 17 with Deke Dickerson as the opening act. Stuart carries on the amazing legacies left behind of country legends like Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, and George Jones. Dickerson played solo for his set and was accompanied by his girlfriend Sally Jo for the last song. Dickerson’s set included covers from Willie Nelson and Merle Travis.

Anytime you see an artist like Stuart at the Troubadour, it's always a memorable show. From telling stories about George Jones to Heartbreakers guitarist Mike Campbell joining Stuart, this show had many unforgettable moments. One of the best parts of the show was Stuart and his band around the microphone and letting his band members each sing lead vocals for different songs. Stuart’s set included “El Paso,” “Mojave,” “Old Mexico,” ”Pretty Boy Floyd,” (Byrds and Gram Parsons Cover) During the encore Dickerson came out and played upright bass for a song and guitar on another. Campbell who produced Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives new album “Way Out West,” performed “Freight Train Boogie” “Time Don’t Wait” along with the band.
