Pic of the Week: Marty Stuart Edition

You never know who will turn up at your favorite national library, and the other day it was none other than country music legend Marty Stuart, who dropped by to visit with Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden. The Mississippi native started performing professionally as a pre-teen, and grew into a singer, songwriter and multi-threat instrumentalist who played with Lester Flatt, Johnny Cash and dozens of others. He’s also a serious preservationist of country music history, with plans to open the Congress of Country Music,  a museum and arts center in his hometown of Philadelphia, Miss.

    We at the Tennessee State Museum have a collection of 50 of his photos. They are amazing, and cover a golden period in country music history that can only be revisited through his camera lens. His reverence and knowledge for the masters of this genre preserves this history for all of us.
