Marty Stuart's 16th Annual Late Night Jam

Marty Stuart's 16th Annual Late Night Jam

June 7, 2017

Nashville, TN

For the last 16 years, Marty Stuart's Late Night Jam unofficially kicked off CMA Fest with a cornucopia of grade A talent and 2017 was no exception.

Vocal great and Stuart's better half, Connie Smith welcomed the fans with a stirring "Amazing Grace," and after that Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives hit the stage for some head-bobbing, toe-tapping jamming.

There were many highlights of the four-hour show, including world-class guitarist, Tommy Emmanuel, Booker T. Jones, and Wynonna, who all came out guns a blazing.

Some special surprises came from two newcomers: Ashley McBryde, who was visibly moved as she sang about living her dreams in spite of those who said she couldn't. Sean McConnell, another singer-songwriter, wowed the crowd with his piercing tenor voice.

Another big highlight for Marty was being presented with a special proclamation: Celebrating 25 years as a member of the Grand Ole Opry.

The Late Night Jam annually raises money for MusiCares, an organization that provides assistance for musicians during financial difficulties. This year, more than $22,000 was raised. Learn more about Marty Stuart's Late Night Jam and donate to MusiCares.
