Marty Stuart, Glenn Douglas Tubb, & “Skip A Rope”

It’s crazy how things sometimes work out, making it hard to doubt divine intervention. A few months ago Marty Stuart began releasing a song a month in a project he calls Songs I Sing in the Dark, with the purpose of shining a renewed spotlight on some compositions from country and classic pop he believes are still vital and worthy of remembering. The self-described radical preservationist and now Country Music Hall of Famer selected the social commentary song “Skip a Rope” for his latest installment, releasing it on Tuesday, May 25th. Lo and behold, the next day we find out that the song’s writer has passed away.

Evansville, IN – Victory Theatre is excited to announce that the legendary Marty Stuart will be hitting the stage on Nov. 18. While he’s too gracious to admit it himself, the Grammy-winning singer, songwriter and musician is living, breathing country-music history. He’s played alongside the masters, from Cash to Lester Flatt, who discovered him; been a worldwide ambassador for Nashville, Bakersfield and points in between; and safeguarded country’s most valuable traditions and physical artifacts. Including its literal shoes: Stuart counts the brogan of Carter Family patriarch A.P. Carter and an assortment of Cash’s black boots among his vast collection of memorabilia.

Marty Stuart Coming To Evansville’s Victory Theatre

Country music icon, Marty Stuart will be making his way to Evansville for a show at the Victory Theatre. Marty Stuart is a country music legend, Grand Ole Opry Member, Grammy award winner, and that's just the tip of the iceberg. I grew up listening to Marty Stuart's music. Everything from "Hillbilly Rock," "That's Country", "Burn Me Down", and several other hits defined my childhood. Then there was the partnership between Marty and Travis Tritt. The hits they created were gold. I mean "This One's Gonna Hurt You" and "The Whiskey Ain't Workin'" were songs that I would jam out to all of the time...and I still do. I remember when the two came to Evansville in the early 90s for their "Double Trouble" tour. That was actually my first concert. I also remember seeing Marty when he performed at the Vanderburgh County Fair. Those were some of my favorite concert memories.

WATCH: Marty Stuart Shares the Johnny Cash Song He Dearly Loves

Album: Forever Words (Expanded) In Their Words: “I dearly love ‘I’ve Been Around.’ The song and video are both filled with that unexplainable charisma that John R Cash specialized in. He was such a great writer. A true poet at heart. It’s hard to believe that he never got around to recording this song. The words are cinematic, timeless, classic JR.

Marty Stuart Revives the Words of Johnny Cash on ‘I’ll Be Around’

Marty Stuart brings the words of Johnny Cash back to life in “I’ll Be Around,” a track the legend wrote but never got around to recording. Part of the expanded edition of the Johnny Cash: Forever Words album, the track tough-as-nails lyrics and a country thump to match, with Stuart imitating Cash’s signature vocal. All about a guy who’s been there and done that, and can’t be held down, it’s classic Cash at his Man In Black best, and Stuart — one of the newest members of the Country Music Hall of Fame — says he was instantly drawn to the previously unrecorded song. After being given the raw lyrics, he created the song’s melody in the style he figured Cash would have used.
