Five time Grammy-winner Marty Stuart today releases “Way Out West” on Superlatone…
Stuart’s 18th studio release was conceived as a love letter to the promised land of California by one of Country music’s living legends, who has played with everyone from Johnny Cash to Lester Flatt.
“Way Out West” is Marty Stuart’s album-length paean to the myth and magic of the American West. It finds country’s stalwart neo-traditionalist turning cosmic cowboy for a journey through the Joshua trees, shadowy canyons and desert dreams that tantalize travelers with the promise of a golden shore on the other side,” NPR Music proclaims.
Additionally, Marty Stuart announced a headlining US tour in support of “Way Out West”. The tour includes stops in New York City, Chicago, Birmingham, Minneapolis, and St. Louis (See full dates below). Tickets for this tour are on sale now and can be found here.
Marty Stuart also shared his new music video for “Torpedo,” a rollicking instrumental track off “Way Out West”, via Guitar World. The video strings together behind-the-scenes photos taken during the creation of “Way Out West”, and provides a glimpse into Stuart’s studio process.
In addition to his video for “Torpedo” Stuart recently premiered the video for his new single, “Way Out West,” on Billboard. The video follows a trip, in more than one sense of the word, through the Mojave Desert as narrated by Stuart, and captures his fascination with the American West.
