Leroy: "What?"

Marty: "Roy Acuff and the Smoky Mountain Boys are still big news there."

Leroy: "They sure are. And I'll tell ya what, Marty. When I was a little boy ,,,,"

Marty: "Yeah."

Leroy: "I used to love listenin' to the Grand Ole Opry on Saturday night. Could hardly wait for Mr. Acuff's show to come on. And Onie Wheeler would blow that train whistle and play that harmonica, and this is Onie's little girl."

Marty: "Karen, that's right."

Leroy: "And .. I've got my ole buddy Superman. We're gonna have Darrin, Jamie and Connie join in. We're gonna do 'Night Train To Memphis'."

Marty: "Well, kick it off there boy."

Eddie Stubbs said, "Great old time music right there from Leroy Troy and Karen Wheeler and all the gang and 'Night Train To Memphis'. Well you know they were shoutin' Hallelueh and that got me to thinkin' that it's gonna be Sunday before we know it and we'd like to encourage you and yours to attend the church of your choice and with that theme in mind, we'd like to declare hymn time this week. We've got Dailey & Vincent and the whole group and, of course, Marty Stuart and The Fabulous Superlatives gathered around the mike to do one of one of the old Bill Monroe favorites ....

We love the Brothers." Marty said, "Well, we do, too. You got a new record comin' out in tribute to The Statler Brothers." Jamie said, "We do. You can only find it at Cracker Barrel Old Country Stores." Marty said, "Think of how good it would sound sittin' in that rockin' chair on America's front porch." Jamie said, "With a biscuit in one hand and a glass of sweet tea in the other." Marty said, "Need ya go any further." Darrin said, "Cracker Barrel Old Country Store." Jamie continued, "Dailey & Vincent sing The Statler Brothers." Marty said, "Well, it's gonna be a great record, I'm sure. Hey, what song ya got picked out?" Jamie said, "Let's do one called 'Elizabeth'." Marty said, "Mr. Fortune song." Jamie said, "Yes sir." Marty continued, "How 'bout a hand for Dailey & Vincent, ladies and gentlemen."
