Cindy Mitchum joins Gene to announce signature drive for famous father’s poem

Gene Williams offers his support for a national poem and talks shop with Canadian entertainer of the year Ronnie Prophet on the next broadcast of the award-winning Gene Williams Country Television Show.

"In 2003, after six consecutive successful show seasons in Branson, Ronnie and Glory-Anne Prophet took their show on the road and took some time off from their daily shows in the live entertainment capital of the world. Now they are ready to return to a regular season of shows in 2004 and will launch a new show from the Branson Mall Theatre. Ronnie Prophet joins me on the set to make this announcement and I’m pleased he told it first on the Gene Williams Show," said the show’s founder Gene Williams.

Dubbed by his peers as the entertainer's entertainer, Ronnie Prophet lives up to the praise with his unique stylization of songs and guitar instrumentals. He has traveled world-wide and performed on tour with the likes of Danny Thomas, Kenny Rogers, Perry Como, Mel Tillis, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, Charley Pride, Dolly Parton and others.

"I was also pleased to add my signature to a petition requesting that a famous poem by the late John Mitchum be made the national poem. John’s daughter Cindy stopped by the set to tell viewers about her quest to make America, Why I Love Her, the national poem," Williams said. "Many will recognize her father for his roles in Dirty Harry, The Outlaw Josey Wales, Bonanza, The Waltons and Little House on the Prairie just to name a few of the over 100 appearances in major motion pictures and television shows. A prolific poet, he was nominated for a Grammy for America, Why I Love Her."
