       “The name is recognized...the talent is evident,” said Williams of his friend Cash. “Tommy was born in Arkansas, one of seven children in his family, and eight years after his brother Johnny. I grew up just down the road from them. Our viewers will recognize Tommy’s hit ‘Six White Horses,’ his Top Ten singles ‘One Song Away’ and ‘Rise and Shine,’ and the Top 20 hit ‘I Recall a Gypsy Woman.’  Tommy tours worldwide and is in great demand as a speaker and for his ‘Tribute’ to Johnny in his concerts.”
     “We always enjoy having Doug Gabriel on our show and this time he plays his famous ‘Mufftar’ on the show. We were honored to have him bring the one of a kind guitar made from a muffler to the studio. It doesn’t often leave the theater because Doug likes to keep it in a constant environment,” said Williams.
      “Gabriel is beginning 10th season in Branson with ‘Doug Gabriel and Roy Clark-Together Again’ shows during Hot Winter Fun at the Legends Family Theatre in Branson and adding one of my favorite comedians, Royce Elliott, to the ‘Doug Gabriel Show’ which begins in April,” he said.
 The “Gene Williams Show” is comprised of celebrity interviews, Lynn featured in her own videos and videos from the biggest, hottest names in country music such as Shania Twain, Trace Adkins, Dixie Chicks, Alan Jackson, Brad Paisley, Faith Hill and more.
    “Gene is like a ‘Who’s Who in Country Music.’ He has worked with such greats as Johnny Cash, the Statler Brothers, Carl Perkins, the Carter Family, Charlie Walker, Del Reeves, Merle Haggard, Ray Price, Bill Carlisle, Johnny Carver, Tommy Cash, Claude King, Ronnie Session, Charlie Louvin, Jack Greene and Little Jimmy Dickens. He is an inductee to the Memphis Music Hall of Fame. Gene grew up listening to country music and pursued his dream of being in the country music business,” said Lynn, an award winning vocalist who has held the Branson Entertainment Awards Best Support Vocalist for the past three years for her work in the “Mickey Gilley Show.”
