(November 6, 2014) – "Larry's Country Diner," the down-home variety program produced by Gabriel Communications that draws over 1.5 million loyal viewers each month on RFD-TV and FamilyNet, continues to serve up hearty laughs and great music that will leave you thirsty for more! "Larry’s Country Diner" promises a warm and nostalgic lineup during the month of November: Country Music Hall of Fame member Jean Shepard, the legendary Gene Watson, Veteran Country hitmaker Johnny Rodriguez, power house vocalist Jamie O’Neal, and singer-songwriter extraordinaire Tim Menzies, For more information on "Larry's Country Diner" please visit larryscountrydiner.com.
Each week in November, you can catch Larry and the gang on the RFD-TV network, as well as FamilyNet**:
Nov. 1: Jean Shepard
Nov. 8: Gene Watson
Nov. 15: Johnny Rodriguez
Nov. 22: Jamie O’Neal
Nov. 29: Tim Menzies
"Larry's Country Diner" airs Saturday nights at 11 P.M ET/10 P.M. CT and Sunday evenings at 7 P.M. ET/6 P.M. CT on RFD-TV. "Larry's Country Diner" also airs on FamilyNet (check local listings for airtimes in your area). All lineups and schedules are subject to change.
"Larry's Country Diner" has captured the hearts of consumers across the nation, regularly earning top primetime ratings for viewership with ages 50+ [Nielsen]. Fervent fans and the shows' growing popularity have led to a multiple-year waiting list to be a part of the studio audience.
There are few artists in the Country Music format any more beloved than Jean Shepard. The Oklahoma native hit the charts before she turned twenty-one with 1953’s “A Dear John Letter,” a duet with Ferlin Husky, the man who would also be her legal guardian for a brief period during the song’s chart climb. She added such hits to her resume as “Second Fiddle To An Old Guitar” and “Slippin’ Away.” She will mark sixty years as a member of the Grand Ole Opry next year, and was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2011. The singer released her autobiography, Down Through The Years, earlier this year.
For four decades, Gene Watson has kept audiences entertained with his traditional style of Country Music. He broke onto the radio airwaves in 1975 with “Love In The Hot Afternoon.” Other hits would include “Paper Rosie,” “Farewell Party,” and “Don’t Waste It On The Blues.” Watson is a frequent performer on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry, and has just released his newest project, My Heroes Have Always Been Country, a collection of his favorite songs that has become his highest-charting album in a quarter-century.
Sabinal, Texas native Johnny Rodriguez was the first major Latin American star in Country Music. Breaking upon the scene in 1973, thanks to Tom T. Hall, the singer hit with his first single, “Pass Me By,” which quickly became a top ten hit. The singer remained a chart favorite throughout the 1980s, placing six singles atop the Billboard charts, including “That’s The Way Love Goes” and “Love Put A Song In My Heart.”
Jamie O’Neal began her musical career in a band with her parents while growing up in Australia. The soulful stylist came to the attention of Mercury Nashville in 2000, and she would top the charts with her first two singles – the haunting “There Is No Arizona” and the energetic “When I Think About Angels.” Her most recent album, 2014’s Eternal, features her take on songs made famous by artists such as Larry Gatlin & The Gatlin Brothers, Patsy Cline, and Connie Smith.
Tim Menzies has enjoyed one of the most well-rounded careers in Country Music. The Virginia native first achieved success as a member of the 1980s Warner Brothers group Bandana, and enjoyed success with solo singles such as “This Ol’ Heart” and ‘That’s Good.” He also penned some of the biggest hits of the 1980s and 1990s, including “Mama Knows” (Shenandoah) and “She Dreams” (Mark Chesnutt). He has just released his first project in a dozen years, the Gospel-flavored His Way Of Loving Me.

Thoughts of the 48th CMA Awards Show
(Nashville, TN-11.6.14)I did watch the entire show, something I have not done for several years. I felt that it was well produced, and covered all of country music in the short TV time allotted for the show .
Brad and Carrie were great hosts, but it is time to change for next year’s show, maybe Vince and Reba, Tim and Faith, or Garth and Trisha. Brad and Carrie have done great work, but a change cannot hurt the show, and each year select a new male and female artist to be the host. There are so many great choices in the industry to host the show and it is no reflection on Brad and Carrie. They have given new life to the show. CMA has done an awesome job of presenting a production that I feel covers all avenues of country music as much as possible in a limited amount of television time.
Someone tell me, who really represents traditional country music in today’s format, that can be called country music. I continue to believe that Blake Shelton holds the reins to leading real country music to new heights. I hope he will lead the music to more success than it has ever known, and I feel that he is the one who can do that, if he so chooses.
I wish record labels and artists would record more traditional country music, and make country radio practice what they preach, when they label themselves as country music stations!!!!!! When I say artists, I mean those artists who love traditional country music, but are afraid to hold to their beliefs because they might not get signed by a label that does not want to record traditional country music!!!!!
I will preach fiddles and steel guitars until my dying breath, but I guess I am preaching to a chosen few. I hope when the 50th CMA Awards Show is aired in a couple of years, that there will be a section of the show to pay homage to the traditional legendary country music artists still living, and those who have passed on. I also hope they make sure that those artists that are still living are invited to be part of the audience and to be recognized as the cornerstones of country music. It is up to the artists of today to make sure that the legends of yesterday are given recognition for their contributions to make country music the success that it is today. I realize that might never happen because of how times have changed in country music, but never say never-right? I hope we never forget who brought country music to the heights that it is enjoying at the present!!!!
Changing of the guard was evident last night. Rating rules TV shows. Now this is going to sound like I have bowed down to the sounds that are not country, but last night the Doobie Bros., “Listen To The Music,” hit a home run as a highlight of how they presented their great song. Some of you might not agree with me, but when I was a touring artist, I appreciated the Doobie’s music and how they presented it with many of their songs having a country flavor. I was not totally disappointed in last night’s show, because I realized that I was watching changes that have become evident over the past few years, some good and some not so good, but change is something we cannot alter, only hope that it is for the best. Time will tell.
A couple thoughts as follows:
Loretta Lynn’s cameo appearance was a highlight, but too short.
Whoever was on the sound board mixing Lady Antebellum must have had his fingers taped together. The song was a great ROCK SONG.
Florida Georgia Line had a terrible mix on the guitars, maybe not to them. I will say they had great tattoo’s!!!!!!!!!
Band Perry-Great dress, great performance of a great song, just too bad the mix did not match their great performance.
Tim McGraw was the highlight of the night for me. Great performance.
I am wondering if the time has come in country music where we are leaving the past behind to fend for itself or if the changing of the guard has just forgotten who paved the road for them. Time will tell. I am open to change, but as we make those changes, let’s not forget those who gave this new generation the opportunity to be a part of country music and to make changes. Hopefully they will make changes that move country music forward into a new era of success. I hear some great artists of today, who are not afraid to record traditional country music, so I am hoping that this might a trend of the future and that country radio stations will be “country”. The history of country music is made up of fiddles and steel guitars, so let’s always keep their place sacred and not store them away in vaults not to be heard again. I feel that the old saying “what goes around, comes around,” is true. BTW, I am not opposed to country music artists who record their music without a tradition sound, but….today’s radio format seems to be more open to traditional country music than it ever has been. That is just my opinion of what I hear.
My congratulations to CMA for a great production last night. Hopefully each year the show will continue to feature the roots of traditional country music in some way, and include those artists who are still living and should be recognized by the new generation of country music. I don’t mind change, but as we change, let’s not forget those that give us the opportunity to make changes, as long as the changes are beneficial to our music.
Your comments pro and con are always welcome and I wish you all a great week and as we close in on the holiday season, I wish you a Blessed Thanksgiving with your families.

TWO NEW TITLES FROM RURAL RHYTHM’S “HERITAGE COLLECTION” SERIES
BY DALE POTTER & BUCK RYAN
Classic Country & Bluegrass Fiddle Albums from the 60’s & 70’s, Now Available
Nashville, TN (November 6, 2014) - Rural Rhythm Records is proud to announce two new titles in its archival HERITAGE COLLECTION series. The Rural Rhythm HERITAGE COLLECTION Series will help keep traditional roots music alive and preserved for future generations. The Rural Rhythm HERITAGE COLLECTION Series includes authentic Old-Time Country, Bluegrass, Folk, Country Waltzes, Fiddle Tunes and Gospel music performed by many legends & pioneers. Titles are mastered from the original master tapes, with original cover artwork and include many albums never-before available on CD.
Since the initial release in late 2013, thirteen titles have been released to date in the Rural Rhythm HERITAGE COLLECTION Series including titles by MAC WISEMAN, HYLO BROWN & The Timberliners, RED SMILEY & The Blue Grass Cut-Ups, J.E. MAINER & The Mountaineers, CURLY FOX, LEE MOORE, RAYMOND FAIRCHILD and JIM GREER & The Mac-O-Chee Valley Folks.
Rural Rhythm is now releasing two more titles in the HERITAGE COLLECTION Series in both the physical CD and digital formats by DALE POTTER with Shot Jackson & Jim Murphy – Hoe Down, Volume 1 originally released in 1967 and BUCK RYAN with Don Reno & Red Smiley – Fiddling Buck Ryan originally released in 1971.
DALE POTTER was once called “the greatest fiddle player who ever lived”. His Nashville studio work tended to prove that: He was one of the most-demanded studio fiddlers during the 1940’s,1950’s and 1960’s. His recording work included dozens of top country artists including Hank Williams, Little Jimmy Dickens, Chet Atkins, Jimmy Dean and Webb Pierce. His special skill in country-jazz fiddle set a standard which was seldom matched by any other fiddler.
Recorded in 1967and produced by Lee Sutton, Hoe Down !, Volume 1 is part of a ten album series that Uncle Jim O’Neal created featuring some of the best fiddle players around in the 60’s such as Vassar Clements, Buck Ryan, Clarence “Tater” Tate, Mutt Poston, DeWayne Wear and of course, Dale Potter. In addition to fiddle master DALE POTTER, Hoe Down, Volume 1 features Shot Jackson on Dobro guitar and Jim Murphy on steel guitar.
BUCK RYAN was playing fiddle with Don Reno, Red Smiley and Bill Harrell and The Tennessee Cut-Ups at the time of this recording, so we are fortunate to hear one of those rare recordings where Reno & Smiley and Harrell are serving as a backup band. Fiddling Buck Ryan was produced by Dick Unteed and recorded at the Rome Recording studios and contains some of the best Bluegrass & Country instrumental music recorded by this fine group of Bluegrass legends and pioneers.
DALE POTTER – Hoe Down, Volume 1 (RUR-179) and BUCK RYAN - Fiddling Buck Ryan (RUR-244) are available to DJ's on AirPlay Direct, as well as, the other thirteen titles currently released in the Rural Rhythm Heritage Collection series.
Both titles are now available on iTunes DALE POTTER – Hoe Down, Volume 1 and BUCK RYAN - Fiddling Buck Ryan and Amazon DALE POTTER - Hoe Down, Volume 1 and BUCK RYAN - Fiddling Buck Ryan and wherever digital and physical CD music is sold.
Upcoming titles to the Rural Rhythm HERITAGE COLLECTION Series:
o HYLO BROWN – Folk Songs of Rural America
o HYLO BROWN – Legends & Tall Tales
o JIM EANES with RED SMILEY & The Blue Grass Cut-Ups
o MAC MARTIN & The Dixie Travelers – Travelin’ Blues – Instrumental Album
o Vassar Clements, Dale Potter, Clarence “Tater” Tate, Buck Ryan – COUNTRY FIDDLERS: HOE DOWN ! Volume 10
More reissue titles will be announced shortly
