Jean Marty Stuart (né le 30 Septembre, 1958) est un chanteur américain de musique country, connue tant pour son style traditionnel, éclectique et fusion de rockabilly, honky tonk, que pour la musique country traditionnelle. Au début des années 1990, il eut une série fructueuse de succès en Country Music.



Early Life & Rise to Fame

Born as John Marty Stuart in Philadelphia, Mississippi, 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.

Né John Marty Stuart à Philadelphie, Mississippi, Marty Stuart est connue comme un des artistes les plus éclectiques de Musique country, parce qu'il exécute et enregistre plusieurs types largement divers de musique country. C'est une des raisons de son succès dans les années 1990, au moment où le Traditionalisme faisait un retour dans la Musique country.



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.

Dès son plus jeune âge, il est obsédé par la musique country. Il est tellement obsédé, en fait, qu'il  apprend seul à jouer de la guitare et de la mandoline. À l'âge de 12 ans, Stuart débute le spectacle avec le groupe Bluegrass The Sullivans. Il rencontre ensuite Lester Flatt White . Ce dernier l'invita à jouer avec lui et les Nashville Grass au concert Labor Day dans le Delaware en 1972. Après cela, White lui  propose d’intégrer définitivement  le groupe ce que Stuart accepte. Ceci fait, White s’occupe du reste de l'éducation de Stuart. Marty reste avec Lester Flatt jusqu'à la séparation du groupe, en 1978, en raison de sa santé défaillante.

In 1979, Flatt died. Stuart pushed forward and worked with fiddler Vassar Clements. He also worked with guitarist Doc Watson. In 1980, he joined Johnny Cash's backing band. The previous year, Stuart made his first solo album, With A Little Help From My Friends, on Ridge Runner Records.

En 1979, Flatt décède. Stuart progresse et travaille avec le joueur de violon Vassar Clements. Il travaille également avec le guitariste Doc Watson. En 1980, il rejoint l'orchestre de Johnny Cash. L'année précédente, Stuart avait sorti son premier album solo, avec l'aide de ses amis, sur le label Ridge Runner.



In 1982, he released a second album called Busy Bee Cafe on Sugar Hill Records. Both of these albums were strongly Bluegrass albums, and they failed to garner any success for Stuart. In 1983, Stuart married Johnny Cash's daughter, Cindy. They divorced 5 years later. In 1985, Stuart left Cash's band to pursue a solo career.

En 1982, il sort un deuxième album appelé Busy Bee Cafe sur le label Sugar Hill. Ces deux albums, très marqué Bluegrass, n’ont pas  recueilli le succès escompté par Stuart. En 1983, il épouse la fille de Johnny Cash, Cindy, mais ils divorcent 5 ans plus tard. En 1985, Stuart quitte le groupe pour poursuivre une carrière solo.


Recording career in the 1980s & 1990s

In 1985, Stuart left Cash's band and landed a recording contract with Columbia Records in 1985. In 1986, he released a self-titled album on the label. In 1985, just after landing his deal with Columbia, he had a Top 20 hit with the song "Arlene." Although he had a hit on his hands, his 1986 album Marty Stuart didn't sell. Stuart recorded a follow-up album,Let There Be Country, but Columbia failed to release it.

His marriage to Cindy Cash ended in divorce in 1988, leading to Stuart's return home to Mississippi. Roland White invited Stuart to rejoin his band as their fiddler and this helped Stuart build his confidence to try again at becoming a singer.

Stuart soon returned to Nashville. He landed a deal with MCA Records in 1989, which was formerly Decca Records. That year, Stuart released his first album on MCA, Hillbilly Rock. In 1990, he finally made it big with the album, when two of his songs from Hillbilly Rock became hits. The title track, "Hillbilly Rock," was his first Top Ten hit on the Country charts. The other song, "Western Girls," just broke the Top 20. The album got great reviews from critics, who compared Marty's work to that of country singer Dwight Yoakam. The album featured a cover version of the Johnny Cash hit "Cry, Cry, Cry." In 1991, he released another album, Tempted, and the title track became Marty's first Top 5 hit.

In 1991, Marty co-wrote a song with Travis Tritt called "The Whiskey Ain't Workin'." The song was recorded as a duetIt's All About to Change, and that became Marty's biggest hit. In 1992, his former record company, Columbia finally released his album Let There Be Country. That same year, Stuart released the album This One's Gonna Hurt You on MCA. The album's title track, a duet with Travis Tritt, was released as a single, and became another Top Ten hit for Stuart. This One's Gonna Hurt You became Marty's first gold album. on Tritt's 1991 album

Between 1991 and 1992 Marty and Travis went on the road for what they called the "No Hats" tour, referring to "hat acts," as it seemed at the time every mainstream country singer was wearing a cowboy hat on stage. Although Stuart built quite a fans following, follow-up success was hard to find. The release of his 1994 album Love and Luck turned out to be less successful than he hoped it would be. Three singles were released from the album, but only one ("Kiss Me, I'm Gone") made the Top 40. His record sales began to slip. This led to MCA releasing the album The Marty Party Hit Pack in 1995. This also led to a series of "Marty Party" concerts on the Nashville network. The year 1996 saw the release of another album, Honky Tonkin's What I Do Best. Once again, sales were less than hoped for. Stuart released three singles, with only one reaching the Top 40.
