The Nashville Scene's panel of 90+ voters ranked Marty's Nashville, Volume 1: Tear The Woodpile Down #7 on their list of the Top 30 Best Albums in 2012.

Screenshots and recap of the January 12, 2013 Marty Stuart Show featuring Kayton Roberts and Chris Scruggs are on the website.

It's so nice to see Marty's Nashville, Volume 1: Tear The Woodpile Down show up on the Best Albums of 2012 lists. Country Universe ranked it at #29. Ben Foster wrote, "Featuring a raucous roadhouse jam one moment ('Tear The Woodpile Down,' 'Truck Driver's Blues'), and a straight-up steel weeper the next ('A Matter Of Time,' 'The Lonely Kind'), Nashville, Volume 1 offers an entertaining fusion of country music past and present from one of the genre's most staunch advocates of tradition. A solid set of songs with some unexpected collaborations (Hank Williams III, Buck Trent, Lorrie Carter Bennett) ensure that there is never a dull moment. Top tracks 'A Matter Of Time,' 'Truck Driver's Blues,' 'Picture From Life's Other Side'." Ben ranked it at #19 individually. Sam Gazdziak ranked it at #6.

Marty's Nashville, Volume 1: Tear The Woodpile Down also topped Engine's 145's Top Albums of 2012 list, saying: "Marty Stuart celebrated two milestones in 2012: 40 years in Nashville and 20 years as a member of the Opry. The teenage bluegrass picker is now a country music statesman, and his new record pays tribute to the sounds of classic country music without ever feeling stale. Stuart's smooth vocals and stellar guitar work, backed by his band The Fabulous Superlatives, are firmly on point through Woodpile, whether they're tearing up a breakneck instrumental like "Hollywood Boogie" or a fiddle-and-steel heartbreaker like "It's Only A Matter Of Time." He may be in his fourth decade as a professional musician, but he's rarely sounded better than he does here."

Marty's Nashville, Volume 1: Tear The Woodpile Down topped That Nashville Sound's Top 10 Albums of 2012 saying "Stuart is the flag-bearer for keeping traditional country music alive in Nashville. As Little Jimmy Dickens slows down in his 90's, Stuart is also becoming the face of he Opry. Here, he delivers a foot-stomping, barn-raising, jam-session collection of great songs that reminds that he's still at the very top of his game."

From 2012

Marty said, "It really means the world to me to be recognized by my peers for this piece. My main electric guitar belonged to Clarence White, the great guitarist for the Byrds. After Clarence's death, I bought this guitar from his wife. I've played it on a lot of hits and on a lot of records, but I've never felt like -- to the Clarence White fans who watch me or who actually watch the guitar -- I've laid down a profound instrumental that pays homage to Clarence. I wrote this song and gave it a title that pays tribute to Clarence. I consider it my B-bender recital piece."

This is from CMT on the Country Music Hall of Fame inductions of Jimmy Dean and Don Williams: "Next came Marty Stuart and His Fabulous Superlatives to liven things up with a high-lonesome, high-velocity rendering of the Bill Monroe chestnut, 'Working on a Building.' After respectfully greeting the dignitaries seated on the front row, the ever-mischievous Stuart added, 'I've never in my life seen a bunch that needed a gospel song more than they do.' Talk about sharp-dressed guys! Stuart, on mandolin, was clad completely in black, while his bandsmen -- drummer "Handsome" Harry Stinson, bassist "Apostle" Paul Martin and guitarist "Cousin" Kenny Vaughan -- were resplendent in white suits with black shirts. Stinson's high-tenor vocals set the crowd cheering long before the song was over."

This museum attests to this, so that she might share the many accolades she has with us... A few years ago, a journalist mentioned her - that she was the Queen of Country Music. 'Kitty Wells is the queen. Tammy Wynette is the first lady'" ("I thought that was Connie Smith," Marty jokingly added) "'I'm just the coal miner's daughter,' Loretta said. Kitty Wells might have been the queen to a lot of people, but I agree with the reporter."

Thankfully, Porter was able to record one last incredible album, produced by Marty. Marty had this to say about Porter: "Losing Porter is going to take a whole lot of getting used to as he's been a part of my life for so long. I grew up watching his television show in Mississippi, and it was as if he were a member of our family. After I got to know him, he was."

"He was a masterful showman, who understood the art of the final act. He left the world on top. Some of the things that soften the blow of his passing are all the memories from the past year. We made a wonderful record together that got him lots of acclaim, he celebrated his 50th anniversary with the Grand Ole Opry, he had a new generation of kids in love with him and his music, the awards were coming, the Martin Guitar Company had named a guitar in his honor and he was asked to light the nation's Christmas tree at the Pageant of Peace celebration in Washington, D.C. next month. One of the last things he said to me was, 'You're gonna' have to call the President and tell him I won't be able to sing him any Christmas songs this year. Maybe next year.' "
