Trivia and Quotes

  • Trivia

    • In October 2005, Emery launched "The Nashville Show," a free weekly Webcast with Shotgun Red as co-host.

    • Emery earned his first national fame as the late-night 'disc jockey' on Nashville's venerable AM radio station WSM. Due to the 'clear-channel' broadcasting range of the station at night, Emery's country-music radio show could be heard over much of the American south and east--especially by many an overnight long-haul truck driver, who were often fans of country music.

    • Once Emery was seen on Nashville Now, his rich voice and easy affability with his guests made the show a national phenomenon. He would converse with a wide range of country-music stars of all eras, and also played opposite a Muppet-style 'co-host,' "Shotgun Red," during several seasons.
