March 2003

The 16th a convoy consisting of an 03 Lincoln, an 03 Mercury plus a sound truck carrying the show and band I'd tour with that week, picked me up at the Holiday Inn near the Minneapolis, Minnesota airport where I had flown to. We drove north some 4 1/2 hours to Coleraine, Minnesota where Jeannie Seely, Steve Hall/Shotgun Red, the Shotgun Red Band and I would do the first concert, which was at the high school auditorium there that night. Monday, the 17th, we were at the Northern Inn Ballroom in Bemidgi, Minnesota. Wednesday, the 19th our concert was at the school auditorium in Brainerd, Minnesota.

Steve Hall/Shotgun Red & the Shotgun Red Band would open the shows, then Jeannie Seely, then me. Near the end of my show, Grammy award winning, Grand Ole Opry star, Jeannie Seely would slip back on stage and join the "Shoobie Do Wah's" on "Lonely Teardrops". I'd then asked her to stay on stage and join me for duets of "Today I Started Loving You Again" and "Shake, Rattle & Roll". At the end of each of her shows, she got standing ovations after the ending with her biggest hit, "Don't Touch Me". I received a standing ovation after each of my shows. Long autograph lines then awaited Steve, Jeannie and me.

After going back home to spend the night, I was back on the road that Friday night, driving the more than 300 miles to Quincy, Illinois. I was there to play a concert at the Jr. High School auditorium, Saturday, the 22nd, joined by "Two For the Show" from Branson. Some 1,200 welcomed us. This audience blessed me with two standing ovations and a long autograph line in the lobby afterwards.

Saturday, the 29th, I played my annual concert at the Music Ranch USA in West Point, Kentucky. The wonderful audience who had come from as far away as England, Michigan, Ohio, South Carolina, West Virginia, Indiana and Kentucky blessed me with 7 or 8 standing ovations! Country Classics did a marvelous job backing me. A long autograph line then awaited me in the Lobby as my U.S. Fan Club President, Roy Combs and his wife, Donna opened the record rack. Rube & Nancy Yelvington (who hire me there) told me this was the best of the seven shows I've done there. I made this 600 mile round trip drive alone.
