Picks and Pans Review: The Marty Party Ii
In this concert special, Marty Stuart, the bantam rooster of country music, takes to the stage in an eye-popping spangled jacket that would make Liberace blush. Must be party time. First among his co-revelers is Travis Tritt, who tears into "Hard Times and Misery" and duets with Marty on "The Whiskey Ain't Workin'." But the rowdiest offering comes from the shaggy Kentucky HeadHunters, who crank up some country boogie that has the bite of a snapping turtle. There's a sedate bluegrass interlude halfway through the show with fiddler Vassar Clements. Before this shindig ends, they're up and dancing in the aisles of Nashville's Ryman Auditorium. Like all good parties, this is over too soon.
