Well, I had the honor of introducing these folks on the Grand Ole Opry stage not long ago and they tore the top off the house. Bet they're gonna do it again today. Would you make welcome, our friends, the Carolina Chocolate Drops. Hello. Hello Justin, Rhiannon, hello Dom. Welcome, welcome, welcome." Carolina Chocolate Drops performed "Trouble In Your Mind."

Marty said, "Hey, Carolina Chocolate Drops. That's all right. Great job." After a commercial which included congratulations on the Grammy nominations for Marty, Connie, and the Fabulous Superlatives, Marty said, "Tell it like it is. Look over there, Superlatives.

Eddie promoted Marty's book of photographs, Country Music: The Masters. After a commercial break, Marty and Paul Martin were on stage. Marty said, "So far, so good Apostle. All right. Welcome back, ladies and gentlemen. The Marty Stuart Show is sponsored by the good people in my home state of Mississippi. I wanna tell ya about one of the most unique stores in Mississippi. It's Williams Brothers in Philadelphia. Since 1907, the Williams family has been sellin' overalls, pocket knives, horse collars, garden seed, shoes, groceries, and the best hoop cheese in the world. People come from all over the country to visit Sid Williams and all the folks at Williams Brothers. Like I said before, if Williams Brothers don't have it, you probably don't need it. You never know who you'll see at Williams Brothers. You might even find Peyton or Eli Manning slicin' bacon at the counter. You see, Mr. Williams was their grandpa. So go see old Sid Williams and tell him all of us here at The Marty Stuart Show said hello. Speakin' of bacon slicers, the Sultan of Goodlettsville, the most popular man in country music. Carolina Chocolate Drops, here he is. The ole Tennessee Slicker. Leroy Troy. Come here Troy boy. You know Apostle, Connie, Carolina Chocolate Drops. Looks like ya got somethin' big under that hat. What's goin' on? Yeah, what is it?"

Leroy: "Hmmmm, I got a good'un."

Marty: "Whatcha got?"

Leroy: "It's called 'The Girl I Love Don't Pay Me No Mind'."

Marty: "A precious selection. In the key of ....."

Leroy: "C."

Marty: "Major."

Marty said, "Awww. Beats anything I've ever seen." Eddie Stubbs said, "One of the great old time songs there. 'The Girl I Love Don't Pay Me No Mind' from Leroy Troy. We'd like to declare hymn time this week. We're gonna call on Marty Stuart and The Fabulous Superlatives. They've got a song picked out that you'll find on in their Souls' Chapel selection. 'Lord, Give Me Just A Little More Time'."

After a commercial break, Eddie Stubbs promoted Souls' Chapel at the Superlatone Store. Eddie said, "Now back to Marty Stuart and our special guest." Marty said, "Thank you, Eddie Stubbs. How 'bout a hand for the Mr. Stubbs. Carolina Chocolate Drops, on behalf of all The Superlatives, Leroy, Connie, and Gary Carter, Thank you for what you're doin' out there. You're keepin' a great tradition of music alive. Thank you so much." Dom said, "No problem. It's a pleasure and an honor to be here. Just play some of this old time stuff, you know. When we first met Joe Thompson, you know, he was well known in the old time community, and as we played the tunes more and more, it's been great that the people have been interested in that sort of music." Marty said, "Absolutely. Well you guys are carryin' the torch. Thank you so much." Dom said, "No problem." Marty said, "Honor us with another one. Whatcha got?" Dom said, "We're gonna do this one that Joe used to call the squaredancers on this one. This is called 'Old Corn Liquor'." Marty said, " 'Old Corn Liquor'. Leroy will jump right in on this one." Marty did some fine dancing of his own.

Marty said, "Hey. 'Old Corn Liquor' was the cause of it all. Hey, Carolina Chocolate Drops come over here, babies. Miss Connie Smith. Leroy Troy.
