The video today for Waylon Wednesday is from the TV show Nashville Now starring Ralph Emery with special guests Waylon Jennings, Hank Williams Jr. and Merle Gilgore from Nov. 1988. Hank Jr. sings Mind Your Own business followed up by Waylon and Hank Jr. singing The Conversation.
Nashville Now was an American talk show that focused on country music performers in the style of The Tonight Show. The show aired live on weeknights on TNN from 1983-1993. The host was Nashville TV/radio personality Ralph Emery. The show was nominated for an ACE Award in 1987 for Music Series. A frequent guest and substitute host was Shotgun Red, a puppet performed by Steve Hall. It originated from TNN’s studio (“Gaslight Theater”) at Opryland USA in Nashville, which, from 1998 to 2010, was the only remaining standing structure from the Opryland Theme park. It was demolished after suffering heavy damage in the 2010 Tennessee floods.
Reruns of Nashville Now were added to the relaunched Nashville Network on November 1, 2012.
