11 (A2): By George, that's a photo of Mr. Strait where the Man in Black used to be.

From Hank Williams' handwritten lyrics to "Your Cheatin' Heart" to Johnny Cash's first black suit, Marty Stuart's collection of country music memorabilia is a peek into "a special part of history," says Stuart, a four-time Grammy winner himself. His exhibition "Sparkle & Twang: Marty Stuart's American Musical Odyssey" has been on display at the Tennessee State Museum in Nashville and will travel to museums around the U.S. in 2008. Standouts? A fringed Patsy Cline dress made by the singer's mother and a pair of Porter Wagoner's red boots (both shown above). Says Stuart: "There's magic that occurred around these people and these objects."
