Pretty Miss Norma Jean
I know most folks remember me from my seven years on The Porter Wagoner Television Show, and being a member of the "Grand Ole Opry" for many years in the 60's and 70's.

Ronnie Hawkins - The Hawk

Billy Walker
It was Slim Whitman and Walker who assisted Elvis Presley in getting his first shot at the Louisiana Hayride. Walker remembers his first encounter with the “Hillbilly Cat” a.k.a. Elvis Presley. “ Here comes this good looking’ kid. Dressed in black pants with a pink coat and pink shoes to match.” Elvis asked if he could sing a song. “I just stood there sort of in suspended animation until this kid goes out on stage and BANG! Instant electricity.” The Tall Texan remarked. This would mark the first of many encounters with the King. In 1955 Tillman Franks, Billy and Elvis joined together and toured West Texas. A young outlaw by the name of Waylon Jennings was their poster boy. Waylon assisted in promotion of the tour. Walker would later introduce a shy Elvis to his old friend Roy Orbison.

Charlie Louvin
The name Louvin Brothers is linked to some of the most memorable vocals on record, and their place in the history of American music is assured. Charlie Louvin is an important member of country music's illustrious past. He continues to keep the flame of real country music burning every Friday and Saturday night on Nashville's Grand Ole Opry, of which he has been a member for over 50 years, and through live performances and studio recordings Charlie keeps demonstrating why he has been such a large influence on so many of today's performers.

Jeannie Kendall
Some people study the history of contemporary music. Others live and make that history a reality. Jeannie Kendall belongs to the elite latter group. Jeannie Kendall's life has prepared her for the success of her latest project, "All The Girl's I Am." As a singer she's recorded music in all genres, and is recognized by her peers as one of country's top voices. As a woman she's traveled through 'young and unknowing' standing next to her father as a part of The Kendall's, to 'experienced and confident' as a solo artist. As some women may try on a new fashion look, Jeannie Kendall approached "All The Girls I Am" with a pleasurable freedom of musical choice. She sings what feels right to her, not looking at the musical label. She demonstrates with "All the Girls I Am" all the girls she's destined to become.
