Thank you for tunin' in. How 'bout a hand for our friend, Mr. Tommy Emmanuel. Take a bow, Tommy. All the pretty ladies sittin' by him courtesy of Manuel. Those pretty clothes. The Superlative Strings are here. Jodi Seyfried is here. Our friend, Mr. Pig Robbins, a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame. Hello Pig. And another member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, went in at the same time Pig Robbins did. How 'bout a hand for Miss Connie Smith, everybody. Hi Constance. Hi baby," Connie said, "Hi honey." Marty said, "I love this song you're about to sing." Connie said, "Me, too." Marty continued, "And I loved the lady that sung it, Skeeter Davis." Connie said, "I did, too. She was my friend." Marty said, "I miss her, and this is probably one of the greatest songs ever made in Nashville, don't you think? Connie said, "I think so." Marty said, "Here's 'The End Of The World' and Miss Connie Smith. How 'bout a hand for her, everybody."
Marty said, "That was beautiful.
Whoa, sorry, Cous. Say hello to Mr. Tommy Emmanuel.
All right, Tommy. Tommy. The song me and Mr. Kennerley
composed comes from the Mississippi Delta land. It
goes like this. You know what to do." They performed
Marty said, "Oh yeah."
After a commercial break, Marty said, "In the words of
Jimmie Rodgers, 'Hey, hey'. I'm Marty Stuart and I
want to welcome you back to the show that is sponsored
by the birthplace of America's music. Dear ole
Mississippi. Whataya think, Superlatives? All right.
Now when we travel, we love to go to towns and visit
historical sites and places of interest. The best way
to get to know a town and its people is to go to the
local museum. My hometown of Philadelphia has a county
museum. The story of Philadelphia, Mississippi is a
unique one. Now that city's worked hard to gather
artifacts, documents, photographs, and treasures that
represent a town that is culturally rich. One of the
products of Philadelphia, Mississippi's culture is
that of southern hospitality. And that's what you'll
find all over town and especially at the Neshoba
County Museum. So how 'bout a hand for all of our
friends in Neshoba County, Mississippi. Speakin' of
treasures, one of the great treasures of this nation
and, as a matter of fact, planet Earth is my brother.
We mentioned today is Manuel Day. That means all these
beautiful clothes you're seeing was composed and
created from the heart of this man right here. They
call him the Rhinestone Picasso. I just call him
Brother. How 'bout a hand for Manuel, everybody. Hey
Manuel: "Thank you,
Brother. Thank you for the invite."
Marty: "I'm honored to be in your
Manuel: "Well, I'm honored to have a
day. I didn't know I had a day."
Marty: "Yeah. Well there should be
Manuel Day every day."
Manuel: "Well, it should, but you
know how it is. I gotta play by the rules."
Marty: "Well everywhere we go, it's
Manuel Day coz we love wearin' your clothes. Thank
you, brother, for so many years of beauty."
Manuel: "Thank you for wearing the
stuff that I make with so much pride."
Marty: "Well, you're so welcome. Now
I have a subject comin' out the door right now that
you might just take a look at him and at the end of
the show, have him come by the shop and dress him up,
all right? He's the Tennessee Slicker. The most
popular man in country music. How 'bout a hand for
Leroy Troy, everybody. Whataya think?"
Manuel: "All right."
Marty: "There he is.
Manuel: "You need me. You're my best
Leroy: "Well, thank you."
Marty: "About a 38 long, I'm
thinkin'. Leroy. Manuel, have a seat and we'll play
for ya. Whataya think, Leroy?"
Leroy: "I loved it."
Marty: "I do, too."
Leroy: "Now it's time to bring it
down a notch. Give me a G here."
Marty: "Here it comes."
Leroy performed "Big Daddy's Alabamy
Eddie said, "Great job there, Leroy Troy, on 'Big Daddy's Alabamy Bound'. One of the most popular parts of our show is when it's hymn time. It becomes all the more special as Connie Smith sings a song written by Don Gibson that she recorded in an album a number of years back. 'Praying Hands'."
After a commercial break,
Eddie said, "Here's Marty Stuart along with a
certified guitar player, Mr. Tommy Emmanuel." Marty
said, "And how 'bout a hand for Eddie Stubbs. Rock
solid, my boy. And how 'bout a hand for all the pretty
people over here on the hay bales. Manuel and Connie
and Leroy. You are framed beautifully, Leroy. And how
'bout a hand for the great Tommy Emmanuel. Tommy, it's
an honor to have you." Tommy said, "Well, thank you,
Marty. Thank you for having me on." Marty said, "Are
you kidding. It is such an honor to have you." Tommy
said, "Thank you."Marty said, "It's like this. It's
all yours. Do what you wish." Tommy said, "Well, thank
you very much. Here's a medley of my hit." They both
laughed. Marty said, "Go right along. How 'bout ...
Mr. Tommy Emmanuel."
Marty said, "Yeah. Tommy Emmanuel. Cous. Come over children. Thank you for comin', man. On behalf of Tommy Emmanuel, Connie Smith, Manuel, Leroy Troy, the Manuel Dolls, Pig Robbins. Hey Pig. Give me five, Pig. Eddie Stubbs, The Superlative Strings, Gary Carter, I'm Marty Stuart saying thank you for comin'. See ya again next week, right here on The Marty Stuart Show."
