The world famous Blackwood Brothers Quartet is featured on the second of a series of the Best of the Gene Williams Country Television Show on the next Lucas Oil sponsored, Telly Award-winning show that is taped live in Branson, Mo., and telecast across the nation to more than 60 million homes coast-to-coast and border-to-border. The show with the Blackwood Brothers Quartet will be telecast Jan. 24 and 25.

“It was a delight to have the Blackwood Brothers Quartet on my show last year and I know the viewers will enjoy seeing this historic show again,” said Gene Williams the star, producer and creator of the longest running weekly TV show in Branson. “I’ve done my show for almost eight years in Branson and this was the first time I have been able to coordinate the famous group’s schedule with my show’s taping schedule. This group was founded in 1934. What an honor to have the group that has such a history to perform on the stage of the Gene Williams Theatre. Today James Blackwood’s son, Jimmy (James Jr.) Blackwood continues the 73-year gospel music tradition with Wayne Little, Randy Byrd and Brad White.”

In addition to the Blackwood Brothers the Best of Series will feature Johnny Lee, Barbara Fairchild, Joey Riley and Mickey Gilley.

The next live taping of the Gene Williams Country TV Show is Feb. 15 at 2 p.m. at the
