This is the most honest and best country music album to come out of Nashville in a decade. Ghost Train, the release before this, had a couple I wasn't all that crazy about, but this one is darn near a perfect album. Not a dud in the bunch. When you put out a album and the worst song, which is good, is an instrmental--you know you have accomplished something. I read somewhere where Marty said the most "outlaw" thing you can do in Nashville these days is make a real country music album. I guess this makes Marty the King of the Outlaws. You just know that Johnny and Waylon would be proud and somewhere Merle Haggard has a big old girn on his face. Wonderful! Buy it! You need it! You will be glad you did!

I got this CD early from the Official Marty Stuart site. I listened to it all weekend and wanted to write a review but it hadn't been released yet. I LOVE IT!!!! Marty and the boys have come up with another masterpiece of perfection. Soul's Chapel is one of his best and this one is right up there with it. My only complaint is.....it is too short. Hopefully with the title Vol 1 there will be a 2 coming out soon. Thank you Marty for bringing us such great music that is not mainstream. You bring us true music! I'm a very grateful fan.

Marty Stuart is a living, breathing link to the heart and soul of country music. His voice is authentic, his songs weave new threads into the existing historical tapestry, and his band is as sharp as the Buckaroos in their prime. This latest album demonstrates how strongly Stuart connects to the headwaters and multiple tributaries that have flowed in and out of country's main branch, with music that is possessed by Bakersfield sting, Memphis rockabilly, Nashville steel, Bluegrass harmonies and Appalachian strings. It's a fitting follow-up to 2010's Ghost Train, and a nice addition to a string of albums, starting with 1999's thematic The Pilgrim, that's included country, gospel, bluegrass and honky-tonk.

It's no accident that Stuart's pictured playfully taunting a young lion cub on the album cover, as he was that very cub upon arriving in Nashville in 1972. He may have grown into the role of historian and elder statesmen, but his intellectual knowledge of country music never obscures his first-hand experience. The wide-eyed desire he originally brought to Nashville is still evident as the band blazes through the title track. Their frenetic twin guitar lead, twanging steel and backing vocals are as hot as the song's driving beat, and the band steps it up another notch for the Larry Collins-Joe Maphis styled guitar duet "Hollywood Boogie." Across electric waltzes, steel ballads and country rockers, Stuart sings of the hard climb, heartbreak, failure and fleeting success that greet Nashville transplants.

Stuart threads his theme through both his originals and a couple of covers.

This CD is FABULOUS. It is traditional, vintage country. I had heard several of the songs on Marty's show on RFD-TV and had written down the titles and tried to find them on a CD. Well, here they are and it was worth the wait. "Sundown In Nashville" and "Going, Going, Gone" are my personal favorites. I'm thankful that someone (Marty) cares about us "forgotten people" who love the traditional stuff.

"Traditional" can be tricky...oft times, you run the risk of being stale and dull. But it can also be captivating and awe-inspiring. According to the liner notes for his latest release, NASHVILLE, VOL. 1: TEAR THE WOODPILE DOWN, Marty Stuart wanted to head down such a route, to get back more to his roots, with this effort. Well, I'm happy to say that WOODPILE falls squarely in the above-mentioned latter category.
Now, mind you, I don't see a whole lot of difference between this album and pretty much anything Stuart has put out in the last 25 years. Yeah, there may be a TAD bit less of a pop sheen, but that overall honesty and organic vibe that has permiated 99.8% of his work is in plentiful abundance here. Dull? Maybe that could be said about some "traditionalists." Marty Stuart? Never!
Things get off to a rip-roaring start with the disc's high octane title track. With guitars wailing and drums crackling, the arrangement kicks off at a solid 10 and never slows down. Toss in a spirited lead vocal from Stuart and you have a track that makes it VERY clear what a good time is going to be had by all! Very nice.
"Sundown In Nashville" is pure magic....first, you have an arrangement that is lilting and light-hearted. Next, you have a medley of instruments that blend beautifully together (Just listen to the oh, so, subtle piano fills!). Then there's Stuart's sturdy, assured vocal. Finally, we have strong, thoughtful lyrics ("Each evening at sundown in Nashville/They sweep broken dreams off the street"). Another winner!
"A Matter Of Time" has a number of things to like about it....amazing guitar riffs, a killer lead vocal, stunning harmonies...but two things REALLY jump out at you. First, you have Kenny Lovelace's mournful fiddle....talk about a living, breathing thing!
