Marty Stuart Announces 2011 Late Night Jam Lineup
Marty Stuart is readying his annual Late Night Jam set to take place during 2011's CMA Music Festival week held in Nashville throughout the second week of June. This year's show is extra special for Stuart, as it marks the 10th anniversary of the event which treats fans to country music tradition well into the late-night hours.
Country music icons Dolly Parton, Mel Tillis and Connie Smith, along with the Quebe Sisters Band and Cajun great Doug Kershaw, are all set to join Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives for this year’s event to take place on Wednesday, June 8 at 10:00PM at the historic Ryman Auditorium.
Tickets for the Late Night Jam went on sale back in February and have been selling faster than ever before. Proceeds from the event will benefit MusiCares, with a portion also going to Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.
"It's hard to believe that the Late Night Jam is 10 years old," says Stuart in a press release. "I can't help but think back on the first one. I was nervous; pacing and hoping that we'd have enough people show up. The show ended up being a sell-out, and we’ve been going strong ever since. That first show was over 25,000 people ago, and it was also many good deeds ago from MusiCares, and a lot of really magical performances ago from some of my dearest musical friends. Every year I say, 'How can I top that show?' Somehow it happens, and good things result from it. This year will be no different."
