Bill Anderson almost lost his "whisper" during an emotional tribute paid to him recently, when over 30 stars
showed up to honor the legendary singer/songwriter with a special episode of Country Music's Family Reunion
Show, which airs weekly on RFD-TV.

Anderson, who regularly hosts the show, found himself "switching sides", while Vince Gill took over as emcee of the
star studded spectacular that will be televised early next year.  A specific air-date has not yet been determined.

Taped on the set of CFR, amidst golden-clad tables and huge backdrops of Anderson's career photos, the show was
produced by Larry Black and offers viewers an amazing array of stories and songs----all of which stemmed directly
from the honoree's past 50 years as a songwriter and recording artist.

Every song sung was written or co-written by Anderson, who is a member of the Nashville Songwriter's Hall of Fame,
and is acclaimed as the most recorded songwriter in the history of country music. Among recording artists featured
on the show are Roy Clark, B.J. Thomas, George Hamilton IV, Bobby Bare, Ed Bruce, Jamey Johnson, Jon Randall,
Jessi Alexander, Jan Howard, Rhonda Vincent, Mary Lou Turner,  Con Hunley, Jeannie Seely, Jean Shepard, The
Whites, T. Graham Brown, Gene Watson, Moe Bandy, Jim Ed Brown, and Lynn Anderson.

In addition to watching the show on RFD-TV, fans will also be able to purchase Bill Anderson's 50th Anniversary
Celebration on DVD.  For further info go to

But these additional texts and tweets have given us additional insight," FBI Special Agent Stephen Emmett told "Good Morning America" today.
