Sheppard, Jimmy Fortune, T. Graham Brown, Ricky Skaggs, John Conlee Bobby Bare, The Isaacs, Vince Gill, Moe Bandy and many more.
“Sweethearts” takes a look at some of country music’s favorite couples.

This episode is one of “Country’s Family Reunion” sweetest reunions yet including Duane and Norah Lee Allen, Lang Scott and Linda Davis and Sonya Isaacs and Jimmy Yeary.
One of country music’s biggest stars is celebrated by one of the biggest reunions “Country’s Family Reunion” has seen. Legendary Merle Haggard was remembered in “Tribute to Merle Haggard” by never before heard stories from other country legends, memories shared by three of his sons, and performances by John Conlee, Bobby Bare and Mac Wiseman.
The idea behind the hit “Country’s Family Reunion” series when it all started in 1997 was simple – ask the great people who shaped country music to get together and talk about their history, and maybe sing a few songs. Each episode of Country’s Family Reunion is hosted by country legend and hit songwriter, Bill Anderson who guides the discussion and supplies viewers with inside stories from his many years in the business. Nearly 20 years later, Gabriel Communications celebrates more than a dozen projects, featuring hundreds of songs and never-before-heard stories from some of country music’s original artists, which would have otherwise been lost forever.

ABOUT “COUNTRY’S FAMILY REUNION” Gabriel Communications, started in 1996 by long-time disc jockey Larry Black, is the producer of the popular “Country’s Family Reunion” and “Larry’s Country Diner” series. Black first applied the “Reunion” concept to the legends of country music in 1997. The idea was simple: bring America’s most-treasured artists together into one room to reunite and reminisce about their careers, perform signature songs and share stories while the cameras roll. The result has been pure magic, documenting hundreds of stories and performances that would have otherwise been lost. Each episode of Country’s Family Reunion is hosted by country legend and hit songwriter, Bill Anderson who guides the discussion and supplies viewers with inside stories from his many years in the business. The series’ popularity has led to top-rated shows on RFD-TV and wildly successful DVD sales, spurring the creation of more than a dozen more projects and “Country’s Family Reunion” News (a monthly newspaper that highlights the music of yesteryear), as well as giving rise to sold-out theatre shows and ocean cruises by the ever-growing fan base.
