Dailey & VincentNashville, TN --– There may only be eighteen tables at "Larry's Country Diner," but it services 1.4 million people each and every month as one of the top-rated shows on the RFD-TV network. The diner is not your ordinary restaurant, but rather a unique down-home variety show that in just over two short years has become a favorite "eatery" of country fans everywhere. Cornbread and black-eyed peas only complement the heapin' helpin' of country music performances served up by the stars of yesterday and today. Bluegrass music super-stars Dailey & Vincent will be on the menu April 26th.

A new episode of "Larry's Country Diner" will air each week in April on the RFD-TV network. April's line-up offers a little something to satisfy every musical "taste" for country music fans (All schedules subject to change without notice):

  • April 6: Wilson Fairchild

Taped bi-monthly in front of a live studio/diner audience at NorthStar Studios (3201 Dickerson Pike, Nashville), the show's spontaneity is part of the mystique of "Larry's Country Diner" which contributes greatly to its success. "The prevailing attitude at the diner is '...the cameras are always rollin'... and we don't care,'" explains Larry Black, host and creator of "Larry's Country Diner."

The fact that plates are dropped or broken during a performance, a rack of knives and forks are dumped on the floor or that some of the lights go out while they were filming makes the show all that more exciting in a day where even reality shows are produced within strict script guidelines. "It's the kind of television you just don't see too much anymore and both the artists and fans love it," states Black who adds, "We even tell our artists that once the tape starts rolling, it does not stop. If you get yourself in trouble, get yourself out 'cause we're not stoppin'."

Because of its popularity, getting a seat to see a live taping might prove more difficult than getting a reservation at one of L.A.'s most trendy posh restaurants — the first available table is not available until 2013, so you'll want to plan way in advance. For reservations, please call 615-673-2846 or email paula@gabrielcommunications.com.
