The wait is over for the return of the Gene Williams Country Television Show as fans came from as far away as South Dakota to be in the studio audience for the live taping of the first show featuring his co-host, Katie Lynn.

It’s great to be back and I appreciate the support and prayers of my friends and family while I was on hiatus as my doctor recommended. We’ve made a few changes for the show and the biggest is the new taping location. For about eight years we have taped on location in Branson, but due to the economy we moved to the NBC affiliate KY3 studios in Springfield. We will still feature the shows and stars from Branson and country music,” said Williams. “For the new show that will be telecast Sept. 5 and 6, we are featuring Katie Lynn, who has been my co-host since we started the show in Branson.”

Katie Lynn, Williams’ co-host, has received the Branson Entertainment Awards Best Support Vocalist twice for her work in the “Mickey Gilley Show.” She has worked with Gilley for more than eight years and also worked with Jim Owen for seven years. She is finishing her fifth CD release titled Me and Jesus Laughing. In addition to her singing career, she is a real estate agent.
Williams will appear in person on Saturday, Sept. 19, at 6 p.m. at the old Music Mountain Theater, now the Horseshoe Bend Theater, with the “Music in the Mountain Show” and also Sunday, Sept. 20, at 1:30 p.m. at the George D. Hay Music Hall of Fame Induction in Mammoth Spring, Ark. The induction will also include Loretta Lynn and Grand Ole Opry star Mike Snider and a performance by Katie Lynn.
