Starting this Friday, May 9, the Frist Center for the Visual Arts in Nashville will host the exhibit American Ballads: The Photographs of Marty Stuart, featuring more than sixty black-and-white images taken over the span of his career. The photographs include everything from quiet moments with the legends (Bill Monroe, Loretta Lynn, George Jones, Willie Nelson) to everyday folks Stuart encountered on the road, as well as a series devoted to the Lakota people in South Dakota.
