Happy Birthday Minnie Pearl

Stars of Country Music Print - Signed by Roy Acuff, Minnie Pearl, Porter Wagoner, Slim Whitman, + 14 more
Happy birthday to country comedian Minnie Pearl (1912-1996), best known for her over 50 years of appearances at Grand Ole Opry and on the television show Hee Haw (1969 - 1991). Our Collector's Treasure of the Day is this "Stars of Country Music" 24 x 30 inch artist proof which has been hand-signed by eighteen country-western music legends against the background of a superbly rendered gold record: Roy Acuff, Don Gibson, Ferlin Husky, Sonny James, Grandpa Jones, Minnie Pearl, Webb Pierce, Johnny Rodriguez, T. G. Shepard, The Statler Brothers (4 signatures), Hank Thompson, Porter Wagoner, Slim Whitman and Faron Young. The poster was produced in 1981 by the company Art Merchant. In Very Fine Condition. The edition was to have contained 1,000 numbered prints and 100 artist's proofs, but a snowstorm in Nashville curtailed the signing, with only 700 or so of the prints completed. Authenticity guaranteed for life by Collector's Shangri-La.
