Johnny Cash's rendition The Battle Hymn of the Republic.

He is backed up by The Statler Brothers [all the way back to when Lew DeWitt was living], and Mother Maybelle and the Carter Sisters, June, Helen and Anita.

Harold and Don Reid, and Phil Balsley are still living, but everyone else on that stage is gone.

When Mother Maybelle and AP Carter left the Clinch River coal mining country in Southwest Virginia, they moved to Richmond to be a part of a radio show that pre-dated the Grand Ole Opry. It was called the Old Dominion Barn Dance. They lived in an area way out on the edge of Richmond called Glenn Allen. I don't know if they built the house they lived in, or if it was an a existing house and they added on to it, but years and years later, dear friends of mine bought the property and live there for about twenty years.

The Carter Family was well known long before Johnny Cash entered the picture. I always thought June had an "interesting" voice, but the one with the real talent was Anita. In this video of Johnny singing the Battle Hymn, Anita is the tall blond standing beside Mother Maybelle.

In most of Johnny's music, the beautiful soprano voice you hear in the backup is always Anita.

It brings back a lot of memories seeing Johnny, the Carters and the Statlers all together on stage. The first time I ever saw the Statlers, was at a Johnny Cash concert. Johnny Cash is the one who gave them their start. They immortalized that in a song.

One more: Lew DeWitt. I Love Virginia

Lew DeWitt had the most beautiful tenor voice I ever heard.

Little Jimmy Fortune filled Lew's place very well, but he couldn't hold a candle to Lew.

   Daisymay  Went to see Ricky Nelson Remembered on Friday night. Great performance by his twin sons, Matthew and Gunnar. They took us back to my Glory Days in the 50's with film Clips of Ozzie
and Harriet along with playing Ricky's hits. I highly recommend it if it comes to a Theater near you.

   Gram77  Are there any classical listeners around here? Or opera? There used to be.

   MeiDei  YEP! I used to have a 2 hour youtube of classical music to listen to on Firefox while I read the articles on Drudge & Lucianne - lost my sound; trying to find a time when I can turn my computer in to the guru to fix. : )

   Gram77  Got any favorites? I am totally hooked on the Russian composers. Just for fun, did you know that every piece of music Leonard Bernstein conducted he did so by memory?

   StormCnter  Oh Gram, I have a whole shelf of opera and another of classical. Everyone has favorites, of course. I did not know that about Bernstein. I love the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto performed by Isaac Stern. And kiri te kanawa singing just anything. I saw Cecilia Bartoli in Dallas a few years ago. Heavenly talent, for sure.

   MeiDei  Chopin & Tchaikovsky are my favorites, but sharing 2-3 place are Rachmaninoff, DeBussy, Mendelssohn, Shubert, Beethoven, Mozart, Dvorak, Offenbach, Shumann, Ravel, et al. I never was a fan of Wagner (too grim ) but came to appreciate his music from watching "Inspector Morse" who was a fan : ) Oh & the Strauss waltzes! In grammar school we had "Music Appreciation" classes (G1-5 ) highlighting most of the above mentioned; I used to close my eyes & picture scenes the music had me think of .. to date I still "see" music. Remember when cartoons in the movies always had classic music as a backdrop? I'm sure you watch Andre Rieu when he's on PBS.

   MeiDei  What really moves me is Pavarotti singing Nessun Dorma, & more recently Andrea Bocelli singing Time to Say Goodbye - both cause goosebumps right down to the bone!

   StormCnter  I highly recommend "The Three Tenors" album from the 1990 concert. My son-in-law gave me the CD several years ago and I have nearly worn it out. But just for fun, here is the backstage video for that event. Pavarotti, Carreras, Domingo. It's 9 minutes long.

   Gram77  My hubby who always has the blues or jazz station on in the car will stop everything to listen to Pavarotti. Warms my heart. Oddly, I love Wagner. If you see any of his operas (and I bet you have ) they are really a thrill. Nice to see this site come alive. Thanks!!

   MeiDei  Speaking of opera, did you ever hear the J. G. Wentworth commercials - my dog 'sings' along with them + any opera she hears, she gets it right after the 3rd or 4th try : ) My son has the Wentworth commercial via YouTube on his computer & he'll ask the dog if she wants to sing, she jumps up on his bed, faces the computer expectantly & then sings her heart out - too funny.
