   GLENN & DOTTIE TUBB with JERRY K GREEN

 

That’s Right!!!  Not just Jerry and Glenn, with Dottie on a duet or two, but all three rotating through the hour-long Round.

 

Glenn is a Grammy-Nominated writer of the Hit “Skip-A-Rope” as well as Johnny Cash’s “Home Of The Blues” and the George Jones & Tammy Wynette “Two Story House.”

 

In case you didn’t know, Dottie is a Singer/Songwriter, too. She grew up on the Stage of The Grand Ole Opry, performing as a teenager. She is the daughter of the iconic Radio Comedy & Music Duo ‘Radio Dot Henderson and Smokey Swann,’ both Grand Ole Opry Stars. Dottie’s parents were brought to the Grand Ole Opry by Glenn’s uncle, Country Music Icon Ernest Tubb.

 

Incidentally, though Roy Acuff made the first recording of the song “Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain” in 1947, Dottie first heard the song on her parents 1955 recording of it, as Dot And Smokey. Dottie has been performing the song ever since then, and though Writers Night shows normally include only the performers original songs, she has been granted special permission to sing “Blue Eyes” Saturday night.

 

It  was also Ernest Tubb who introduced Jerry to Country Music, ‘face to face’ in 1940, performing as the Gold Chain Troubadour, on top of a car in Jerry’s hometown of Lewisville, Texas - while biscuits made with Gold Chain Flour were passed out to the Saturday afternoon shoppers.

 

Glenn and Jerry met in 1952, in Austin, Texas, became life-long friends, and when Jerry first arrived in Nashville in 1966, Glenn opened the first door on Music Row for Jerry. That favor led Jerry to 40 performances on the Grand Ole Opry in 1967, as a result of his True Story song about a Real, Three Legged, Tree-Climbing, Singing dog – “Tripod The Three Legged Dog” – who performed with Jerry on his Opry Debut.
