If you were to give country music an address, you might say it’s at the corner of sacred and profane, two doors up from blues and folk, and just across the street from gospel, R&B and rock ‘n’ roll. And on a deeper emotional and spiritual level, it resides where Saturday night meets Sunday morning!

No one understands these coordinates better than Marty Stuart. For more than forty years, the five-time Grammy®-winning multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, photographer and historian has been building a rich legacy at this very crossroads.

Tickets go on sale to the public Friday, Nov. 20, and are available online beginning at 10 a.m., and by phone and in person at the Straz Center Ticket Sales office beginning at 12 p.m.
