On Wednesday night at Nashville’s famed Ryman Auditorium, Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Marty Stuart hosted his 17th annual Late Night Jam, which featured a number of collaborations, music from artists like Chris Stapleton, John Prine, Margo Price and more, along with Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives, plus a special appearance from Roger McGuinn and Chris Hillman, founding members of The Byrds who recently announced a tour in celebration of the 50th anniversary of that group’s album Sweetheart of the Rodeo.
Kicking off the night was Dale Jett—grandson of Sara and A.P. Carter of The Carter Family—who opened the musical offerings with “Will You Miss Me When I’m Gone” before Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives played their own set.
After an appearance from the Opry Square Dancers, John Prine took the stage for a few tunes, including a duet with Margo Price on “In Spite of Ourselves.” Price then had her own set of two songs. Later in the show, after a cover of Tom Petty’s “Running Down a dream” from Stuart and his band, McGuinn and Hillman took the stage with the Superlatives for some Byrds classics.
Chris Stapleton then closed out the night with his own set, which rounded out with an appropriate bookend when he was joined by Stuart and Jett for The Carter Family favorite “Keep On the Sunny Side.”
