Yes, in northern Kentucky his TV show was on right after dinner, and most homes tuned in. Before Dolly, he had other blonde talents duet with him, such as unheard-ofs Lynn Anderson and Tammy Wynette. Porter was always way too rhinestoney for me, and there seemed to be bad blood between him and Dolly that wasn';t resolved until late in life. I remember in 1971 going to the Ole Opry at the Ryman and being disappointed with the huge line to get in. A woman at a side door said to me, "would you like to look inside?" I said sure, and she let me watch as Porter and Dolly sang "If Teardrops were Pennies." The only time I saw the real Opry.
