About the Exhibition

In the late 1960s in Philadelphia, Mississippi, nine-year-old Marty Stuart began playing country music and collecting memorabilia from the big stars' shows. A half century later, having reached his own stardom, Marty Stuart is partnering with the Two Mississippi Museums in an exhibition exploring his life and his legacy of collecting country music's stories, photographs, instruments, costumes, and more. Opening in May 2022, The World of Marty Stuart will include hundreds of items never shown before in the state, including Marty's first guitar, original handwritten Hank Williams manuscripts, guitars from Merle Haggard and Pops Staples, costumes from Porter Wagoner and Dolly Parton, personal items from Johnny Cash, including his first black performance suit, and much more.
