You know what that is, don't you?" Paul said, "Yes sir." Marty continued, "That's a rhinestone. But there ain't nothin' fake about this man. He's the real deal. The diamond in the rough himself. The ole Tennessee Slicker, the most popular man in country music. Ladies and gentlemen, the Sultan of Goodlettsville, how about a hand for my friend, Leroy Troy. Hey Leroy. Look-a here. Look what I got. Look-a here. There's ole Buck. What's the good word from Goodlettsville, Leroy?"

Leroy: "Well, I tell ya what. Spring is springin' in Goodlettsville."

Marty: "It sure is. I love spring."

Leroy: "Me too."

Marty: "Never hear songs about spring. You got one?"

Leroy: "You doggone right."

Marty: "Come one with it. What is it entitled?"

Leroy: "Old Johnny Horton number called 'Springtime In Alaska'."

Marty: "A precious selection."

Leroy: "And I got me a Buck tonight."

Marty: "A ten-point Buck. That's him."

Eddie Stubbs said, "Wow, great job there Leroy Troy and Buck Trent. When it's springtime in Alaska, it's 40 below. I had to get my gloves on. Chilled to the bone here. I tell you what though. I'm gonna take these gloves off because it's time for us to all get our hearts warmed up as we start thinking about going to church on Sunday morning. And with our inspirational offering this week, we've got The Fabulous Superlatives Quartet to gang around the microphone. 'Somebody Saved Me'."
