RFD-TV, the rural network that is on Dish and DirecTV as well as a number of cable systems, carries The Porter Wagoner Show on Friday night.
While watching another country music program last night I saw RFD-TV's tribute to Porter Wagoner. It featured slow-motion clips of the ever-smiling Porter from his show while the Vince Gill/Dolly Parton version of "I Will Always Love You" played. The ending was cleverly edited to sound as though they were singing, "WE'LL always love you." The final scene was Porter's boots walking down the hall, the scene that began his show for what seemed to me to be centuries as I watched it growing up. He opened the door to walk onto the stage, but at that point RFD-TV faded it to white, then to black.
Outstanding job, RFD-TV. And, many thanks for carrying his show.
