Marty Stuart Sets the Date for Annual Late Night Jam
Marty Stuart will once again host his annual Late Night Jam concert during the 2011 CMA Music Festival in June, this year marking the 10th anniversary of the show.
Stuart started the CMA sponsored event as a way to welcome fans to country music’s biggest week. Over the past 10 years, artists including Keith Urban, Vince Gill, Dierks Bentley, Charlie Daniels, Porter Wagoner, Neko Case, Old Crow Medicine Show, Jerry Lee Lewis and many more have joined Stuart for the event. The Late Night Jam has not only given fans a special treat to look forward to year after year, but has also raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for MusiCares.
“The Late Night Jam has evolved into the centerpiece concert event for me on my yearly calendar,” says Stuart. “It’s hard to believe that this is the 10th anniversary of the show. Looking back, the guest list has been staggering. Fans come from all over the world to support us and the relationship with NARAS and MusiCares is precious to me. The Late Night Jam has raised a considerable amount of money over the last decade with the mission of helping people in need. MusiCares has done a wonderful job of distributing the funds as they see fit. I know of a number of people who have benefiting from MusiCares and in some instances lives were saved. That’s what it’s all about. I’m looking forward to this year’s event. [We] will do our best to add another interesting chapter to the Jam’s ongoing story.”
The 2011 Late Night Jam line up will be announced in the coming weeks. Tickets to the event went on sale last Friday through Ticketmaster.
