1401949524000-Sam-Moore-Marty-StuartUSA Today - June 6, 2014 - NASHVILLE — "Country music sounds better here than anywhere else in the world," Marty Stuart said Wednesday night at the Ryman Auditorium.

The one-time home of the Grand Ole Opry is known as the Mother Church of Country Music, and Stuart, hosting his annual Late Night Jam, presided over what amounted to a revival of traditional country music but stretched into other styles.

Even R&B great Sam Moore sang a George Jones hit, a version of She Thinks I Still Care he worked up with Stuart Wednesday afternoon, before launching into his Sam & Dave hits I Thank You and Soul Man.

The Jam began shortly after the end of the CMT Music Awards, which took place a block away, and lasted into the early hours of Thursday morning.

Stuart said he created the Jam, now in its 13th year, because he wanted a show that sounded "like nothing else you would hear this week." He certainly got that, mixing young talent with legacy acts and familiar stars with relative unknowns.

Emily Sunshine Hamilton, a 9-year-old from Madisonville, Tenn., yodeled a Jimmie Rodgers tune, then sang one she wrote called John and June and Jesus. Gospel quartet the Chuck Wagon Gang gathered around a single microphone. Jerry Lee Lewis sideman Kenny Lovelace played, backed by Stuart's Fabulous Superlatives.

May 14, 2014 - Iconic singer and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Sam Moore (best-known for his lead vocals on the historic soul duo Sam & Dave) chatted about his latest endeavors.

His impressive catalog of songs includes such classic hits as "Hold On, I'm Comin'," "I Thank You," "When Something Is Wrong With My Baby," as well as the chart-topping single "Soul Man."

Last month, Moore performed during a Paul Simon tribute at New York's Carnegie Hall and he headlined a concert at New York's City Winery. "That was very, very interesting. It was enriching and a good test for me to do Paul's catalog," he said. "I like playing at the City Winery."

He released a new tune "They Killed a King," in memory of the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. It was recorded at Royal Studios during the 2014 Martin Luther King holiday weekend. "It was a very enlightening experience and an honor to do that, and it's a set-up for next year," he said. "I was very appreciative of that and it was a nice run."
