Take One Part Minnie Pearl, One Part Roger Miller And One Part Larry Gatlin And You End Up With Country Fun!
One of my all time favorite talk shows was ‘Nashville Now on the old TNN network.
Nashville legend Ralph Emery hosted the show nightly and anyone who was anyone in Country Music would join Ralph on the show.
A ‘countryfied’ ‘Tonight Show’ it might be called.
Usually the artist would sing his latest greatest hit, then join Ralph (and sometimes Shotgun Red) over on the couch or chair for a visit.
In this great clip, Ralph has quite a line-up! There’s Miss Minnie Pearl, and next to her one of the greatest sing/songwriter/song stylist’s in country music history, the Hall of Famer Roger Miller…along with one of the greatest voices in country music history Larry Gatlin!
Get ready for a great classic country memory on ‘Nashville Now!’
