Nashville on the Road

Show Summary

Welcome to the Nashville on the Road guide on tv.com.
Nashville on the Road was a country music variety series that was taped at various locations throughout North America.
Jim Ed Brown and comedian Jerry Clower were the show's co-hosts from 1975 through 1981.
The Season One regulars were Jim Ed Brown, Jerry Clower, The Cates Sisters, and The Gems.
Wendy Holcombe, a young banjo player, was a semi-regular member of the cast during the series first three seasons. She became a regular cast member around Season Four.
Singer Helen Cornelius joined the cast during the show's second season. Her duets with Jim Ed Brown became a regular part of the show.
In early 1981, after taping was completed for the 1980-81 season, Jim Ed Brown announced the end of his partnership with Cornelius.

Nashville on the Road returned in Fall 1981 was a new cast. Jim Stafford, Rex Allen Jr. and Sue Powell shared the co-hosting duties. A fourth new cast member was Golly Dang, the Wonder Chimp. This cast only lasted two seasons.
After 8 seasons, Nashville on the Road ceased production in 1983.

Note: As with most 1970s syndicated series, there were no official air dates. (Copies of the episodes were usually "bicycled" from station to station.) Whenever possible, we will try to list the earliest known air date for each episode.
According to one source, there were 208 total episodes of Nashville on the Road, which would average 26 shows per season.

  • Nashville on the Road: GREAT SHOW

    10
    Nashville on the Road is probably one of the greatest country music shows made. Each week, the cast taped the show at a different location, so it wasn't just a boring studio set. Everybody was wonderful, but it seems that the series lost luster after Jim Stafford took over hosting. But still a great show. It's being re aired on RFD-TV.
