Grand Ole Opry introduction by Roy Acuff. Roy plays I Don't Love Nobody, Orange Blossom Special, Sally Goodin' and Boil the Cabbage Down with Charlie Collins and his brother Bert.
David Gibson, spent hours on this project, a masterpiece that captures Roy's history in music.
In David's own words, " A few years ago, I met Roy Thackerson. Roy is one of those unique individuals that you meet and cannot forget. Roy possesses a love for music and an indomitable spirit. He is also a great entertainer. But mostly, Roy is a Texan and a good friend to those around him. I hope this video shows Roy's character and the fact that he is character. There are not many like Roy."
Live @ Wilson County Fair Lebanon, Tn. 2008 with Melvin Sloan and Friends. Roy played the first Wilson County fair in 1975 and many times in between during the next 35 years.
