Late Jim Ed Brown Airs Friday, September 25
 

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (September 24, 2015) – Taken from over 17 years of tapings, the popular Country’s Family Reunion
television series, airing nationally on RFD-TV, celebrates the lives
and legacies of country music greats in their all-new “Tribute” series.
Through their own songs and stories from the legendary artists’ various
appearances on the show, Country’s Family Reunion brings a
can’t-miss series and soon-to-be-released DVD box set of episodes that
can be purchased and cherished as historical timepieces.

This Friday, September 25, tune in for the anticipated premiere episode honoring the late Jim Ed Brown.

For four decades, Jim Ed Brown left an indelible mark on country
music. During a seven-year run, his group, The Browns, charted numerous
times, including the mega-hit “The Three Bells,” which hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Pop and Country charts, No. 10 on Billboard‘s Rhythm and Blues chart, and was featured in the final season of The Sopranos
(2007). The Arkansas native enjoyed his first solo hit in 1965 and his
signature song, “Pop A Top,” ruled the charts two years later. He and
Helen Cornelius won CMA honors in 1976 for Duo of the Year, and the two
enjoyed a string of hits throughout the ‘70s and ‘80s that included “I
Don’t Want To Have To Marry You” and “Saying Hello, Saying I Love You,
Saying Goodbye.” Brown has hosted four network television shows and a
radio program, and served as a spokesperson for Dollar General
Corporation and Arkansas Children’s Hospital. Though he passed away on
June 11, 2015, music will forever be impacted by his down-to-earth brand
of family entertainment. Jim Ed and The Browns will both be formally
inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame on October 25.

About Country’s Family Reunion
Gabriel Communications, started in 1996 by long-time disc jockey
Larry Black, is the producer of the popular Country’s Family Reunionand
Larry’s Country Diner series. Black first applied the “Reunion” concept
to the legends of country music in 1997. The idea was simple: bring
America’s most-treasured artists together into one room to reunite and
reminisce about their careers, perform signature songs and share stories
while the cameras roll. The result has been pure magic, documenting
hundreds of stories and performances that would have otherwise been
lost. The series’ popularity has led to top-rated shows on RFD-TV and
wildly successful DVD sales, spurring the creation of more than a dozen
more projects and Country’s Family Reunion News (a monthly
newspaper that highlights the music of yesteryear), as well as giving
rise to sold-out theatre shows and ocean cruises by the ever-growing fan
base.
