THIS FRIDAY: Country Music Legend, Marty Stuart Brings Honky Tonk to Columbus

The Columbus and Recreation and Parks Department is proud to present our city with the opportunity to experience honky-tonk first-hand with country music legend Marty Stuart & His Fabulous Superlatives!


With a career that stretches more than four decades, Marty Stuart has racked up five Grammy awards, eleven nominations, a Country Music Hall of Fame induction and a spot as a Grand Ole Opry member. Reflecting the rich legacy of his Mississippi roots and the intersection of gospel, drinking and cheating ballads, and rock, Stuart’s time touring with artists like Lester Flatt and Johnny Cash has a direct influence on the “honky-tonk in technicolor” that Billboard describes his music to be. He has charted in the Billboard Top Ten twenty times, which provides listeners of many ages with a tune which their ears should recall!

Opening the evening will be the sultry country voice and mature songwriting of Jonalee White. White boasts an energy and passion to crowds that ensures her love for country music will lasso you back in for more. Performing all over the U.S. with artists such as Taylor Swift, Dierks Bentley and Charlie Daniels, Jonalee has watched her hard work of five Top 40 singles blossom into a successful Columbus-based career.
