Family Harmony [continued]
... mother [Mollie] who wrote and sang Gospel it is little wonder both brothers were grounded in Gospel music. Both Alton and Rabon were singers, songwriters and musicians. The Delmores helped shape traditional country music as a result of their unique Appalachian, Gospel, Folk, and Blues background and their use of unusual instruments such as a four-string Tenor Guitar. And, of course,
had tremendous harmony. By 1936 the Delmore Brothers were the Opry’s most popular show … but that fell apart in 1939 due to contractual issues. The Delmore Brother’s success waned post the Opry and in 1952 Rabon died at 36 bringing a tragic close to the Delmore Brothers story. Tragic??? Yes, due to his brother’s death, Alton had a heart attack, his dad dies and his daughter died … tragic. The final tally finds that the Delmore Brothers wrote over 1,000 songs, including Brown’s Ferry Blues performed here for this harmony special by the McGee Brothers.

In the 1980s the Forester Sisters found tremendous chart success with 15 top 10 hits, including four #1 hits out of their first seven releases! One of the #1s, You Again, was their most requested song. All and all, the sisters had 13 straight top 10 hits, wow! The Forester Sisters won Top Vocal Group honors at the 1986 Academy of Country Music Awards. They took a five-year break before going into the studio again in 1996. Today Kathy and June are back to teaching. Kim and Christy are both in the Interior Design field.
