Marty Stuart & The Fabulous Superlatives with Pam Tillis
AKRON, Ohio (July 25, 2013) – The Akron Civic Theatre will welcome to the stage Marty Stuart & The Fabulous Superlatives with Pam Tillis on Sunday, September 15, 2013 at 7:00pm.
Marty Stuart is a five time GRAMMY-winner, platinum recording artist, Grand Ole Opry star, country music archivist, Southern culture historian, photographer, musician, songwriter, TV show host, charismatic force of nature, and country music fan.
Since starting out singing gospel as a child, Stuart, 54, has spent over four decades celebrating American roots music with a missionary's zeal. His teenage years on tour with bluegrass legend Lester Flatt in the '70s were followed by six years in Johnny Cash's band during the '80s and a chart-topping tenure as a solo artist in the '90s.
Joining Mr. Stuart will be Pam Tillis. She is, after all, a superstar as well as a survivor. A child of Music City royalty and a former rebel, she was determined to find her own way as a singer and songwriter — and she succeeded. A CMA Female Vocalist of the Year, she has written songs for some of the top singers in and... beyond Nashville, including more than a few of her own hits.
