About The Group

This legendary group was very early in their career when they were part of the Renfro Valley Barn Dance crew. These guys drifted out of the Tennesse mountains to see if John Lair's show would have a place for them. And they did. And the rest of the story is history as they say.

John Lair said they had this 'something different' that all radio programmers were looking for. And the surprise to them was that they were going to get paid to be on the Barn Dance and the Monday night broadcast from the old log schoolhouse.

They got many offers, but for a while anyhow, they stayed with the Renfro Valley Barn Dance.
