The custom made table you see here on the left was a birthday gift to me from some very special friends and fans here in Nashville. It was made by a company that specializes in unique, one-of-a-kind products, and stands over 4 ft. tall. I don’t know how much it weighs, but moving it from my office to my house was no easy task. As you can see, it depicts many different facets of the Grand Ole Opry and my involvement there for all these years. I am extremely appreciative of such a special gift. The picture on the upper right was taken Nov. 18th when I hosted the Ernest Tubb Midnight Jamboree radio show. The young lady with the big smile is Ava Kelley, granddaughter of my longtime guitar player, Les Singer. Ava, who is 8 1/2 years old, made her radio debut that night singing “Once A Day.” And on the lower right, one more picture and one more lasting memory of my long friendship with Mel Tillis. He was a big part of my early career and of country music in general. He will certainly be missed.
