George Jones and Tammy Wynette in Huntsville, Texas, 1974

40 years ago, you could go see George and Tammy play outside on some crummy open air riser at a county fair where the steel player had to sit on a metal folding chair.

That, my friends, is country music.

Marty Stuart

Although known primarily as a country music star, Marty Stuart (b. 1958) is a master storyteller not only through his songs, but also through his revealing photographs. He has been taking photographs of the people and places surrounding him since he first went on tour with bluegrass performer Lester Flatt at age thirteen. His inspirations include his mother, Hilda Stuart, whom he watched document their family’s everyday life in Mississippi. A selection of her work is also on view.

"American Ballads: The Photographs of Marty Stuart" is on display now at the Frist Center for Visual Arts in Nashville, TN.

I really need to get back to Nashville.And if you’re already there or passing through, go see this.

I can tell you from experience that being a country music fan in California can be tough— it gets lonely fast, and most people tend to think it’s pretty weird. I mean, isn’t country music supposed to be reserved for hicks and small town America?

It’s a shame, but it feels as though most West Coasters have all but forgotten their country roots. Gene Autry, The Bakersfield Sound and Dwight Yoakam all made a name for themselves on California soil. In an age when it feels as though the Golden State has all but relinquished its ties to country music, it comes as a comfort that Los Angeles-based singer Sam Morgan is making music that’s unapologetically country.

Morgan released his debut album, Nobody Loves, early last year under the moniker Sam Outlaw. Most people don’t believe him, but Outlaw is his mother’s maiden name.

At first glance, Morgan may seem an unlikely candidate for the makings of a country singer. “I’m not a country boy, I’m just not,” he’s quick to admit. Though he was born in South Dakota, he’s spent most of his life in Southern California, and while he didn’t grow up with much country music, he says his father played Asleep at the Wheel “constantly.”

Dolly, Waylon, Loretta and Willie - all behind the lens of New York based photographer Stephanie Chernikowski. Chernikowski has been on the NY photo circuit since the early 70s when she moved to the Big Apple from Texas. She’s captured numerous legends with her 35mm and her photojournalism has appeared in countless publications including Rolling Stone, The New York Times, Journal of Country Music & The New York Daily News.

Dang, a bunch of classic photography has been bubbling up over the past few weeks.

2013 robbed us of a lot of legends. The only consolation I have is the fact that each and every one was over the age of 70. They all lived long, successful, colorful lives and left us with a wonderful world of music to keep their memories alive.
