Hi Friends, I’m taking a short break from the taping at Country Family Reunion to write to you. We’re doing an “Opry Tribute” theme and I know you’re going to love it. It happens to be my birthday and everyone here surprised me with a big cake! You haven’t celebrated til you’ve had T. Graham Brown, Jeannie Seely, Riders In the Sky, John Conlee, Jim Ed Brown, Jean Shepherd and so many more all sing “Happy Birthday” to you. Thank you Larry Black and all the good people at Country Family Reunion for making my birthday extra special. Sure was a surprise to me! I also want to thank all of my great fans that sent me birthday cards and other fun things. I really appreciate that. Every year it means more and more to me . Thanks to Sean Brady for all he does and to Sally Bedow for her help and to Raymond Glenn in Ireland for starting the forum. All of you are a great blessing to me. Sorry I have to make this short, gotta run back and tape some more . I’m singing two songs on the show today! Better get back to it but thank you again for making my birthday extra special! Gene
Hi Friends, I’m in Nashville this week to do some business as well as perform on the Grand Ole Opry on Tuesday night (October 9th). I sure hope if you’re anywhere nearby you can come on out to the Opry house and see the show. Going to be fun with some great acts like Ms. Connie Smith, Pam Tillis, Aaron Tippin and more. On Thursday I’ll be taping a brand new version of Country Family Reunion and I was told the “theme” for this show will be stories about the Opry. I always look forward to those shows since I get to visit with so many old friends and hear some really funny stories. Not to mention hearing my favorite kind of music – real, honest to goodness country. I’m sure all the other artists are as thankful as I am that Mr. Larry Black has continued to bring fans of country music these great shows. I don’t know yet when this one we’re taping Thursday will air on RFD-TV, but I’ll be sure to ask when I’m there and I”ll let you know what I find out. One thing I do know, it sure turned cold on us. It’s chilly up here in Nashville! But I don’t mind that actually and I hope wherever you are, the weather is good for you. Stay in touch. Email me at Artist@Lytlemgmt.com . Take care, Gene
