After a commercial break, Marty and Connie were on stage with Choctaw Indian Princess Mahlih Rene Vaughn. Marty said, "Welcome back, everybody. I'm proud to say that this show is sponsored each and every week by the good people in my home state of Mississippi. Today, I'm honored to have this young lady who comes to join us from the Choctaw Indian Reservation which is located in the Pearl River community right outside of Philadelphia, Mississippi. Please make welcome Miss Mahlih Rene Vaughn. Did I get it? Close enough. Welcome, welcome, welcome, Princess." Mahlih said, "Thank you." Marty continued, "I've worked along side of you several times and I love the dignity and the integrity in which you represent the Choctaw people." Mahlih said, "Thank you." Marty said, "Glad you're here. Constance, give her the microphone. And I read in your bio something really special. You're on a great mission and a reminder from your grandma's memory. Right?" Mahlih said, "Yes I am. The devastating disease is diabetes which is very common amongst our Choctaw people, and my sister and I are on a weight-loss mission to stop this cycle. It's very, it's very, very horrible. I believe it has taken over our Choctaw people, and this is something that we wanna stop, you know. To not only help ourselves, but to also show Choctaw people around that you can do this. This is something you can take full control of and, you know, my grandma did pass away from diabetes -- rest her soul -- and my aunt Nancy gave me this beaded angel that I have on my sash with me today that Miss Connie was just asking me about. She gave it to me saying. I have my very own guardian angel, and I'm thankful for everything that God has blessed upon me and very thankful to be here today. Thank you, Marty." Marty said, "We're honored to have you. We're honored to have you. Great mission. Connie Smith .....I'll tell ya about a guardian angel. You know what happens every year on the third week in July?" Connie said, "The Choctaw Indian Fair." Marty said, "That's exactly right. For well over a half century now, people have come from all over the world to celebrate the beauty and traditions of the Choctaw people and their culture. It's a week of music, dance, food and fun. I'll always have a fond place in my heart for the Choctaw Fair because, Mahlih, that's where I saw this girl for the first time in 1970. So you never know what might come your way. You might even get your picture made with the Princess. Right?" Mahlih said, "Yes." Marty continued, "How 'bout a hand for this lady right here. Beautiful..Thank you very much. Well, speakin' of something, you've never seen anything like this Miss Princess." Mahlih said, "No I haven't. Marty said, "Here he comes the Sultan of Goolettsville, the Ole Tennessee Slicker. How 'bout a hand for Mr. Leroy Troy, everybody. Leroy. You know the Old Crow boys."

Marty: "What's up, pal?."

Leroy: "Oh, hey. I have dug up another one."

Marty: "You have."

Leroy: "I sure have."

Marty: "Well, all right."

Leroy: "I know how you like them old songs."

Marty: "I do. What's this one?"

Leroy: "Here's one called 'The Red River Valley'."

Marty: "A pure classic. How 'bout a hand for Leroy."
