And, Apostle, we're gonna send this show to the capital city of Mississippi, Jackson. And might even be a few people in Stallo, Mississippi watchin' us and Noxapater, too. You're welcome, too. But now, it's time. Emmylou, it's time........ for the Sultan of Goodlettsville, the most popular man in country music. Connie, here he is, the ole Tennessee Slicker, Leroy Troy. Make him feel welcome, ladies and gentlemen. Hey, look-a-there. Look-a-there (pointing to Connie and Emmylou who are sitting on the hay bales). Two of 'em. Nice ones." Leroy said, "Yeah." Marty continued, "Hello Leroy." Leroy said, "Hey, let's do 'Mountain Dew'." Marty said, Come on."

Marty said, "A fine, fine song. I gotta go do a gospel song now." Eddie Stubbs said, "Great job, there, Leroy and one of the old favorites here for sure, 'Mountain Dew'. Well, I saw Leroy take his hat off and that means one thing. That means it's hymn time on the program. We're gonna have the Fabulous Superlatives Quartet gather around the microphone. All four of the fellas had a hand in writing this one. It's called 'Heaven'.".
