Janie Fricke - Honoring Bob Kingsley

i5sl25Kbh 8iB3QNv-g EiNCqwAx-kW-e5cjQIjGNeAe5BDFPLgSAiIo4DSQTEy08KGE1S aL1QDtpvM76PtnkFYI, in case you want to get caught up on the reason I came in to Nashville: it was a star studded night, all surprise for Bob Kingsley, who watched us have #1 records for over 50 years!
He had no idea what singers would be there, so we each told a personal story about how he and country radio have shaped and touched our lives. As a new artist , We all listened to his countdown and hoped our record would be # 1 ! The audience consisted of Industry WHO's WHO, so as I sang IT AIN'T EASY, I was so nervous because of the special occasion and the unusual setting, a private dinner party on the STAGE of the Grand Ole Opry . A night to remember, when I got big hugs from Reba, Alabama, Garth Brooks and Trisha, and others.
