In Their Words: “​​There’s a lot of crazy imagery in this song. I’ve always loved songs like ‘Roll In My Sweet Baby’s Arms,’ ‘Long Journey Home,’ and ‘Salty Dog Blues.’ Those don’t really say much of anything but they feel good and they’re a perfect way to start any show. ‘Country Star’ qualifies as one of those songs. It’s lightly autobiographical and highly danceable and it has a twang factor that’s just exactly right.

“My favorite video director in Nashville is Reid Long. We’ve done several videos together and Reid directed ‘Country Star.’ Consider this, the nation’s most superlative band, go-go dancers, Clarence White’s guitar, a jangling Rickenbacker 12-string guitar, full-blown rhinestone suits, and groovy shades all wrapped up in a great song. We did our part. Your turn: watch it. I promise I can make you smile.” — Marty Stuart
