Half hour show from Nashville with the big stars of The Grand Old Opry. If you’re looking for Country like it used to be…here it is. I’m not a square dance fan but you can’t beat the music. Very entertaining show.
Episode from 1956: Carl Smith opens the show and introduces Ernest Tubb who sings “My Baby Really Loves Me In Her Own Peculiar Way.” Ernest brings on June Carter and they do a comedy routine. June says Marlon Brando keeps banging on her door. It’s a funny bit. June sings “Get Your Hands Off Of Him, He Don’t Belong To You.”
Ernest brings on Hawkshaw Hawkins from West Virginia who sings “It Would Be A Doggone Lie.” Ernest brings on Jean Shepard who sings “He Loved Me Once And He’ll Love Me Again.” Ernest bring out The North Carolina Cloggers to do some square dancing.
Ernest sings “Honky Tonk Heart.” Time now for Jimmy and Johnny who do the Rockabilly song “Sweet Love.” The Jordanairs sing a gospel medley “I’m Goin’ Through/Old Time Religion.”
Ernest closes the show by bringing everybody out to join The Cloggers for a square dance.
