It's amazing the amount of music that is hidden away in vaults or lies forgotten on dusty shelves in Nashville. Many of those lost performances would arguably be offered a relevance not afforded to them at the time in which they were recorded, were they released today.

Vassar Clements' Music City USA is one of those projects. When the recording was originally released in 1995, it came and went without much fanfare. However, upon a 21st century listen, I'm reminded what a treasure Vassar was. He was one of the most soulful musicians to ever walk the Earth; a one of a kind original, who lived his life as a boundless musical adventure. Vassar was a gentle spirit who appeared first in Nashville in the early 1950s as a bluegrass fiddler in Bill Monroe's band. From those days forward, he followed a series of musical trails that took him to places which proved to be a fascinating journey that established him a solid legacy and the testimony of a musical life well lived.

Music City USA is an example of Vassar's belief in filling up a room with musicians from various walks of life and using the song as the central reason to paint a musical picture in a thousand shades and colors.

This recording reminds me how much I loved Vassar and his bluesy style of fiddle playing. Most of all, this project assures me that when the boundaries are abandoned, good music always follows. ~ Marty Stuart
