Stuart toured the Mississippi Arts and Entertainment Experience for the first time, getting an up close look at some of Mississippi's greatest artists, musicians and entertainment and creative legends.

Stuart has traveled the world in his music career, and says the MAX is a world-class facility that spotlights the magnolia state like no other.

"Every time that Mississippi can send a message out beyond our state walls and the borders to the state and to the world, come see us," said Stuart.. "This is a world class piece of business right here and any state, any place on the planet Earth would love to have a place like this."

In the coming weeks, County Road 11 will present a special two-part series with Stuart as he gives us a sneak peak of his amazing country music collection and an update on the Congress of Country Music museum in Philadelphia.
