“Where I grew up in St. Louis, Saturday was country music day on television. We’d watch the Bill Anderson show, the Willie Nelson show, the Dolly Parton and Porter Wagoner show, and always the Grand Ole Opry. My parents were fans of that music, and my friend’s parents would pull the TV out and watch those shows on the porch.” (Michael McDonald)
