Marty Stuart To Release Way Out West On March 10 On Superlatone

Five time GRAMMY-winner Marty Stuart will release Way Out West, his 18th studio album, on March 10 on Superlatone, and it will be available on CD, vinyl, and digitally here. The album was conceived as a love letter by one of Country music’s living legends, who has played with everyone from Cash to Lester Flatt, to the lonely but magical American West, specifically the promised land of California. “If you go and sit by yourself in the middle of the Mojave Desert at sundown and you’re still the same person the next morning when the sun comes up, I’d be greatly surprised,” says Stuart. “It is that spirit world of the West that enchants me.”

Way Out West’s first single “Whole Lotta Highway (With A Million Miles To Go)” premiered on SiriusXM’s Outlaw Country (Channel 60) and Rolling Stone Country and you can listen to it here: http://www.rollingstone.com/country/news/hear-marty-stuarts-restless-new-song-whole-lotta-highway-w461497

Produced by Mike Campbell (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers), and featuring the Fabulous Superlatives –guitarist Kenny Vaughan, drummer Harry Stinson and new member, bassist Chris Scruggs– Marty’s longtime band, which NPR Music said could “melt your heart with four-part harmonies, rock your bones with honky tonk, and dazzle you with picking worthy of their name,” Way Out West is a cinematic tour-de-force. Listeners can feel the warmth of those desert winds over the album’s 15 tracks, a collection of newly written originals, instrumentals and rare covers like the Benny Goodman-penned “Air Mail Special,” and “Lost on the Desert,” once recorded by Johnny Cash. “I asked Johnny about that song when I was in his band,” says Stuart, “and he said the only thing he remembered about it was changing some words. ‘Way Out West’ just as easily could have been titled ‘Lost on the Desert’.”
