Marty Stuart’s 19th “Late Night Jam” will return to Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium on Wednesday, June 8th at 9pm CT. The show, in association with Marty Stuart’s Congress of Country Music, will feature a lineup curated by Stuart himself with special performances by Billy Strings, Colt Clark & Quarantine Kids, Connie Smith, Emmylou Harris, The Grand Ole Opry Square Dancers, Jontavious Willis, Lainey Wilson, Marcus King, Williams & Ree, and others to be announced shortly. This year, the performers will be paired with priceless historic guitars from Stuart’s private collection including, Merle Haggard’s 1970 Martin S000-45, Johnny Cash’s 1937 Martin D-45, George Jones’s 1957 Martin D-28, Tammy Wynette’s 1967 Fender Palomino and Pops Staples’s 1969 Fender Rosewood Telecaster, etc. In addition, Stuart will perform songs from his extensive back catalog, as well as preview brand new original songs. Tickets for Stuart’s “Late Night Jam” will go on sale on May 6th at 10am Central Time and can be purchased here.
Marty Stuart states: “It’s been two years since the last Late Night Jam. It’s wonderful to think about gathering at the Mother Church of Country Music again and making music. Some of the most memorable musical moments I’ve ever experienced happened on the stage of the Ryman at previous Late Night Jams. I have no doubt that I can count on that same magic to occur this year.”
Marty Stuart’s Late Night Jam debuted in 2002.The show has been called “the pirate ship event” of CMA Fest, which this event kicks off, and “a rollicking, super-sized show” by the Tennessean. The show will raise funds for Marty’s Stuart’s Congress of Country Music project in development in Philadelphia, Mississippi. Previously, Marty Stuart’s Late Night Jam has benefited MusiCares, as well as the victims of the Nashville flood, giving away hundreds of thousands of dollars over the years.
The Marty Stuart Congress of Country Music (MSCCM) will be based in Philadelphia, Mississippi which will celebrate the rich cultural heritage of country music through live musical performance and educational programming. This tribute to the culture and rural ethics of America will be presented in a world-class country music museum and performing arts center. Through a lifelong awareness to protect and preserve country music’s legacy: Marty Stuart has assembled a collection that spans over 20,000 pieces.
