Gospel music mainstays Jeff & Sheri Easter to appear on “The Marty Stuart Show”
Award-winning group pays tribute to Lester Flatt classic
Two-time GRAMMY ® Award nominees and six-time GMA DOVE Award winners Jeff & Sheri Easter are scheduled to appear on “The Marty Stuart Show.” The program, to be recorded in Nashville on Jan. 23, will be aired at a later date on the RFD-TV network.
A household name among Gospel music lovers, Jeff & Sheri will be performing their DOVE-nominated song “Workin’ on a Road,” the duo’s rendition of this classic Lester Flatt tune found on their current project, "Expecting Good Things." Marty and his wife, acclaimed vocalist Connie Smith, along with the show's host, Eddie Stubbs, all joined Jeff & Sheri for the recording of the song on the "Expecting Good Things" release.
"We asked Marty to sing with us on this song because of his early years traveling with Lester Flatt and his obvious love for this music," stated Jeff.
"The longer I sing, the more I appreciate being able to make great music with such talented artists,” described Sheri. “Performing alongside such legends seems to not only broaden my abilities as performer, but it also enriches the emotion attached to each lyric."
