Marty Jams with Dolly Parton, Mel Tillis and more at the Ryman!!

By Butch Worrell

Marty threw a party for his 10th annual Late Night jam, inviting his old time friends and raising more than $30,000 for MusiCares, including some to Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. Marty and his Fabulous Superlatives hosted Mel Tillis, Dolly Parton , Doug Kershaw, Ricky Skaggs, Duane Eddy, Connie Smith, The Quebe Sisters Band, Doug Kershaw and my favorite, Lorrie Carter Bennett. The daughter of Anita Carter, she sang Ring of Fire the way her Mom did to a great round of applause. It was a wonderful night, seeing Dolly et al perform at the Ryman. And where would Marty be without Eddie Stubbs to announce. Thank you Marty for all you do for country music, not just bringing us super stars like Dolly and Mel but introducing us to the roots of country music with artists like Lorrie.

It's special when you can see a great show and be with someone who is intent on capturing the perfect frame in his camera for "history-makin'-time" Thanks, Butch!!!
