SUPERLATIVE: Stuart and company.
  • SUPERLATIVE: Stuart and company.

With star quality and a resume that sparkles more than the sequins on his Nudie suit, mandolin prodigy and country music artist Marty Stuart will appear with his Superlatives on stage at Juanita’s on Friday, Nov. 18.

Besides being characterized as a Marvel Comics hero, Stuart can claim numerous Top 20 hits, a platinum album, five gold albums, four Grammys, a place in the Grand Ole Opry and an American Music Awards Lifetime Achievement Award.

The Mississippi-born Stuart was discovered by Lester Flatt, and started touring with him at age 13. He went on to work with Vassar Clements, Doc Watson, and Johnny Cash.

Stuart proved himself not only a bluegrass prodigy, but a well-rounded country artist as well, playing guitar and producing music that hit all the categories of the genre: traditional, contemporary, rockabilly, honky-tonk and gospel. Songs of note include “Little Things,” “Burn Me Down,” “Hillbilly Rock,” “This One’s Gonna Hurt You,” and “The Whiskey Ain’t Workin’ Anymore,” the latter two recorded with fellow hatless country artist Travis Tritt.

“Soul’s Chapel,” his recent release with the Superlatives, is a traditional gospel album laden with as much country twang as “A-mens.” Their “Badlands,” also released this year, chronicles the plight of Native Americans.

Stuart fans will know his 1999 country and bluegrass opera, “Pilgrim,” which includes the talents of Emmylou Harris, George Jones, Earl Scruggs, Johnny Cash, Ralph Stanley and Pam Tillis.

The 18-and-up show starts at 10 p.m. Tickets are $20 in advance or $23 at the door.

    One of the booths at this week's Ark-La-Tex Medical Cannabis Expo was hosted by the Arkansas Hemp Association, a trade group founded to promote and expand non-intoxicating industrial hemp as an agricultural crop in the state. AHA Vice President Jeremy Fisher said the first licenses to grow experimental plots of hemp in the state should be issued by the Arkansas State Plant Board next spring.
  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
