Marty Stuart’s tribute to a legendary guitarist has earned the country music singer a Grammy Award for “Best Country Instrumental.”
“Hummingbyrd” is meant to pay homage to Clarence White of The Byrds.
“It really means the world to me to be recognized by my peers for this piece,” he said.  “I wrote this song and gave it a title that pays tribute to Clarence.”
Stuart also keeps a memory of White in his extensive memorabilia collection. His main electric guitar once belonged to White.
“I bought this guitar from his wife and I’ve played it on a lot o hits and on a lot of records,” Stuart said.
