'Your website is a wonderful tribute to a true legend. One of the first shows I ever worked after moving to Nashville from California was in Grand Rapids, Michigan with Pee Wee King and Redd Stewart.
I was petrified with stage fright, but when I handed them the charts to my songs they said, 'you're gonna be a pro' . . .what a compliment! They never forgot that, and I never forgot their kindness to a newcomer. At her request I learned one of Minnie Pearl's favorite songs, 'You Belong to Me,' which I sing often on the Opry.
