Stacy's Music Row Report All Rights
You're reading it here
first: VICTORIA HALLMAN and DIANA GOODMAN, best known as the Hee Haw Honeys, are now my fellow
Hallman and Diana have
written a book titled Hollywood Lights, Nashville Nights: Two Hee
Haw Honeys Dish Life, Love, ELVIS, BUCK and Good Times in the Kornfield.
ROBERT REYNOLDS has contributed a
short and sweet blurb to the work: "My first crushes were the Hee Haw
From the emailbag, ICEBERG-FAQ #21 writes, "Hi,
Stacy, We met many years ago on a Southwest
flight to Tampa. Am also an avid reader of your Nashville Scene posts.
"With the developers circling the wagons around Bobby's
Idle Hour, just the latest apparent of casualty of Music Row 'redevelopment,' I
thought this song might help drum up awareness about what we've lost,
AND, what we stand to lose if the wrecking balls keep reeking havoc on
our beloved Music Row."
A famous jingle to the contrary, there was
no love lost between JIMMY DEAN and SARA LEE after Dean sued the
company in February, 2004 in response to its dumping him in May, 2003
as its commercial spokesman for the eponymously-named sausage
company Dean founded in 1969.
(The Jimmy Dean Meat Company was originally overseen by Jimmy's
younger brother, DON DEAN . Don remained as
president of the company until he and Jimmy had a falling out; so
serious that the two only spoke once in the last 15 years before Don
died of cancer. Sara
Lee, then known as Consolidated
Foods Corporation, purchased The Jimmy Dean Foods, a
the growing company came to be known, in 1984 for $15 million.)
Jimmy's lawsuit argued
that, having given him the boot (no pun intended) Sara Lee continued to
use his name, signature and image on its products without Dean's
consent, violating the severance agreement by invading his privacy with
the misappropriation of Jimmy's name, thus unjustly enriching Sara Lee.
Sara Lee had already removed Dean's personal quality guarantee from the
packaging of the products bearing Jimmy's name, but, as a result, of a
2005 federal district court ruling barring Sara Lee from continuing to
indicate that its Jimmy Dean products carried the singer's endorsement,
for the next decade Sara Lee cooled it even
as Jimmy Dean held on to one share of stock in what had once been his
company alone, just so he could attend the Sara Lee shareholders'
meetings (though Jimmy's presence at the annual meeting in 2003 made
for an unusually tense presentation).
A year after Jimmy Dean's death on June 13, 2010, Sara Lee
split into two units and its North American operations (including the
Jimmy Dean product line) took the Hillshire Brands corporate name
and in 2014, Tyson Foods acquired Hillshire and
Sara Lee, thus the Jimmy Dean brand.
One wonders what the sausage king would have thought of
Tyson's Summer 2018 ad campaign for its Jimmy Dean product line.
Evidently, Tyson has fashioned a lucrative agreement with
Dean's widow, DONNA MEADE (who married
Jimmy in October, 1991 following [MARY] SUE, Dean's wife
of 40 years, suing Jimmy for divorce, on grounds of adultery, in 1990)
since Tyson's ad campaign features Dean's voice, photo and cursive
The series of TV ads, all voice-overs, appear to have been culled edits
of past ads and perhaps other Dean snippets. Here are
transcripts of three ads currently running:
"I'm Jimmy Dean and, uh, isn't a sunrise something? I
honestly feel that way about Jimmy Dean Sausage. Get yourself
a large chunk of that good mornin' feelin,' Oh, that smells
Dean and, uh, Mother Nature sure doesn't cut any corners when she
paints a morning like that. And we know there is no shortcut
to quality. And that's why we use nothing but the very best
sausages money can buy. Paint yourself a beautiful mornin.'"
"I'm Jimmy Dean and, uh, I wish I
could tell you how I feel about a morning like this. And that
includes a good, hearty breakfast. You need something to warm
the whole body up and get it going. It's a great way to kick
off your day."
Flag Day or, more specifically,
the evening of June 14, 2018, seemed to be an appropriate
time for the Mary Hong Gallery to host a
Tribute to TROY GENTRY. SHELLY
MULLINS coordinated the remembrance, occurring less than
three months before the first anniversary of Gentry's untimely death.
GUY GILCHRIST, (whose Nancy Loves Nashville and The Muppets Take Music City opened
June 2nd and will remain on display through the end of the month at the
gallery) came up with the idea to honor
Gentry, with a series of Gilchrist's hand-painted string instruments,
original pen and ink drawings, comic strip panels and other limited
edition cartoon memorabilia, serving as a backdrop for an evening of
music (featuring, Gilchrist, Halfway to Hazard and surprise
guest JIMMY PAYNE).
'Troy's widow, ANGIE was on hand to speak of the
work of the newly-announced Troy
Gentry Foundation, which will raise money for the causes
dearest to Gentry's heart, such as music education, homeless military
veterans and the eradication of cancer.
Foundation funds were kicked off with the auction of one of Gilchrist's
hand-painted guitars, which Guy was able to secure a $1,000 winning bid
by tossing in some of his artwork once the bidding reached $600.
Kids of all ages enjoyed the
fun that included the appearance of Batman, one of Gentry's favorite
costumed characters of print, stage and screen.
There was a time when observers wondered when CONWAY
TWITTY's estate fight, bitter as it was, might end.
A quarter-century following the singer's death, the way has been
cleared to put many of his personal effects up for sale.
Apparently, Twitty's heirs would rather have the cash than, any longer,
to hang on to Conway's 1934 Martin 0-17 acoustic guitar,
his Greatest Hits: Volume 1 gold record,
a one-of-a-kind Hello Darlin' oil painting, Conway's stage clothes and more.

TRACE ADKINS was the featured entertainer at President DONALD TRUMP's May 29, 2018 rally at
Nashville's Municipal Auditorium.
SMALL handled media credentialing and it was fun to mingle
with my national and local print and broadcasting peers as we heard the
president give (and update) his stump speech, speaking for about an
hour after a retiring GOP congressman, Republican midterm candidates, LARA TRUMP, a minister, a
Republican party official and Trace served as the chief
executive's "opening acts."
Taking the stage to perform the first of three songs for a crowd that
carried placards with phrases like I
Love The Dow (there was a guy, who did not
appear to be transgender, as far as I could tell, hoisting a Women For Trump
sign) Trace began by praising THE ISAACS' for their performance
of The National Anthem, calling it
"The best rendition of The National Anthem I've ever
heard!," before launching into Still A Soldier, followed by Arlington and Ladies Love Country Boys.
When President Trump took the stage he complimented the former Celebrity Apprentice explaining,
"I don't know how he knew this, but [Ladies Love Country Boys] is IVANKA's favorite song."
BEN RUE discusses life after a type 1
diabetes diagnosis with BAILEY McGRATH in the Summer, 2018
issue of Diabetic Living. (Ben
learned he was diabetic at age 14.)
Sad news for fans of CMT's Nashville. The parents
of series stars LENNON STELLA and MAISY STELLA are splitting up.
The real-life teenaged sisters' mother, MARYLYNNE filed
for divorce from BRADLEY PETER STELLA in Davidson
County Circuit Court on April 25, 2018.
Brad has 30 days from the date of service in which to respond.
Once a response has been filed, the case will be assigned to
one of the "two Phils:" Judge PHILIP SMITH or Judge PHILLIP ROBINSON.
