Marty Stuart Releasing Double Album

(Radio.com) Marty Stuart has announced his next album. And this time he's doubling up. That's right, the newest release from the veteran country artist and five-time GRAMMY winner will be a double album. Titled Saturday Night & Sunday Morning, the collection is due for release Sept. 30.

Stuart's idea was to split the material into two camps - the rowdier, party-friendly 'Saturday night' songs are the first disc, while the more solemn, reflective songs live on the 'Sunday morning' portion of the set. It's a fun tactic, and one that bluegrass great Ralph Stanley employed on a double album of his own back in 1994, which was also titled Saturday Night & Sunday Morning.

Stuart's album includes more than a dozen original compositions along with covers of such traditional songs as Hank Williams' "I'm Blue, I'm Lonesome," the Stalter Brothers' "Firing Line," and George Jones' "Old Old House." The song "Uncloudy Day" was a hit in 1956 for the Staples Singers, who join Stuart on the track.

"A few years ago, I rededicated myself to traditional country music," Stuart said in a press release. "We [Stuart and his band, the Fabulous Superlatives] spent some time in RCA Studios in Nashville, where so much of modern country was created, and we worked to imitate that style of production and songwriting." More including the tracklisting.
