Anderson Fair presents Mark Stuart and Stacey Earle.
Stacey Earle and Mark Stuart met for the first time 1991 at a songwriters night in Nashville TN. They knew that night it was one of them things that are just meant to be. They were married in 1992 while raising 2 children from Stacey’s first marriage. “It would be quite a balancing act at that time raising a family and trying to make a living along with all the other stuff that came with getting by, “but we managed” Stacey said, she looks back at her first encounter with the world of touring.
Stacey and Mark over the years have lived and learned so much from each other.
They have always found themselves inseparable from the beginning. It is playing music day in and out together that locked in the sound and love they could not unlock if they tried. Their Songs are the diaries of their life good times and bad, completing the love they have. They share the full load together of getting by day by day. They live in Ashland City TN west of Nashville but call home from the road most of the time.
“Our children are all grown so we left home” for the past three years.
While, no doubt, each still remains an individual solo artist with solo release’s (such as the new 2008 release of Mark Stuart “Left of Nashville” and Stacey Earle “The Ride” due later 2008), it is through the respect of each others work and years of playing together they have created their sound. And, that sound allows each individual to shine through.
Stacey and Mark are no doubt together till death do they part.
