Jan Howard said: “Once more I was honored to be a part of the new Country Family Reunion series which was filmed last week. Words cannot express the feelings of being surrounded by friends, and heros, all sharing stories, laughter, music, and mutual love and respect for each other. Wish I could name everyone who was there, but there isn’t enough room. I can’t wait to see them myself, and I was there.”
Danny Edwards said “I will be playing a valentines dance at the Melody Oakes Ranch in Priddy TX. Feb.13 with Dan Naccarato, Ronnie Dale Shultz and Bruce McNutt. Bring your Honey or someone elses honey and come out and dance to some good traditional country music and some western swing 9 till 1.”
Landon Dodd said “Willies Place on Sirius/XM just started playing four cuts off my new CD “Call of the Wine” yesterday and I got to hear it today myself. A lot of hard work went into that record so there’s a lot of satisfaction that it’s starting to get noticed.”
Bode Barker said “We had a sold out show with Leona Williams in Marble Falls this weekend. She sounds better than ever! Ron was there also and did a great job. I’ll have a pickin high all week thanks to Leona!”
Al Dean said “Everybody get set for the big valentine weekend dance in Nelson City on Sat. Feb. 13, bring your valentine or come out and find a new one. The results are the same.
