Marty Stuart’s newest effort "The Pilgrim" breaks out of the country and rockabilly molds with a degree of boldness that we find refreshing. The songs are very well crafted with lyrics that ring with poetic truth. The disc is peppered with Marty’s acoustic and electric guitar talents (many Martin guitars on this one!) plus some very delicate mandolin playing .
