We came across this vintage video and wanted to share it.

Here is some Wiki on the Ozark Jubilee TV Show:

Ozark Jubilee is the first U.S. network television program to feature country music’s top stars, and the centerpiece of a strategy for Springfield, Missouri to challenge Nashville, Tennessee as America’s country music capital. The weekly live stage show premiered on ABC-TV on January 22, 1955, was renamed Country Music Jubilee on July 6, 1957, and was finally named Jubilee USA on August 2, 1958. Originating “from the heart of the Ozarks,” the Saturday night variety series helped popularize country music in America’s cities and suburbs, drawing more than nine million viewers. The ABC Radio version was heard by millions more starting in August 1954.

A group of young talent the Jubilee brought to national fame includes: 11-year-old Brenda Lee, Porter Wagoner, Wanda Jackson, Sonny James, Jean Shepard and The Browns.
