General Note:
While the "concept" album has always been a staple of rock music, it's rarely been a factor in country--until now. With THE PILGRIM, writer/singer/producer guitarist Marty Stuart has crafted an honest-to-goodness country opera complete with a cast of country legends portraying the various roles. THE PILGRIM is based, Stuart says, on a true story of a love triangle replete with marital infidelity, searching and redemption. Stuart himself plays the role of the lover, the "pilgrim" of the title, as well as a few other characters.
