Marty Stuart: This One's Gonna Hurt You (MCA)

Holly George-Warren, Rolling Stone, 1 October 1992

"I'M COUNTRY to the bone," Marty Stuart growls in 'Me and Hank and Jumpin' Jack Flash', an update of the hokey hillbilly-heaven theme and the opening "spoken word" track on This One's Gonna Hurt You. He ain't joshin': Stuart played mandolin and guitar with the gospel group the Sullivans, bluegrass king Lester Flatt and hall of famer Johnny Cash — all before he could legally buy a bottle of whiskey.
