Chuck Wagon Gang

Country Legend Marty Stuart to Host Film & Live Performance

Franklin, TN  — On Tuesday, February 10th, 2015 New Haven Films will screen a full-length documentary celebrating the 75-year history of The Chuck Wagon Gang entitled “America’s Gospel Singers, The Legacy Lives On” at 7PM in Tennessee’s historic Franklin Theatre.

The project, developed by Marty Stuart and filmed by world-renowned photographer Jack Spencer, chronicles the group’s history through rare family photographs, poignant personal stories, old recordings, new live performances and features special appearances by Merle Haggard, Charlie Daniels, Connie Smith, Eddie Stubbs, Dan Rather, Norah Lee Allen, and Duane Allen of the Oak Ridge Boys.

The inspiring documentary, which is being released in DVD format by New Haven Films, is being released concurrently with “Meeting in Heaven–The Chuck Wagon Gang Sings the Songs of Marty Stuart” a brand new CD of songs written by Country Music legend, Marty Stuart.

Stuart reflects, “I found myself writing an entire album for the group–songs I hope will form a new legacy for the current Chuck Wagon Gang. Although they live in the shadow of a titanic body of work created by their ancestors, there is no doubt in my mind the current group will make a mighty and long-lasting contribution to the storied history of the Chuck Wagon Gang.”

Ken Harding, president of New Haven Records and Films, couldn’t be more excited about the debut of these projects: “Rarely do we have the privilege of standing at the crossroads where country, bluegrass and gospel music so meaningfully converge with American history and culture. The timeless hope embodied in the Chuck Wagon Gang is as relevant today as it was when they began during the Great Depression three-quarters of a century ago.”

Tickets for this once in a lifetime event are available for $25 and $35 online at www.franklintheatre.com. Doors open at 6PM and the event, hosted by Marty Stuart, begins at 7PM. Following the screening, The Chuck Wagon Gang will perform a few of their classic favorites.
