Ron and Opal have been called to the senior communities across America with a special emphasis in Yuma, AZ and
Branson, MO.  In January 2013 they pioneered  the Legacy Gospel Music Fellowship in Yuma, AZ.  This is an
opportunity for the senior community to come together in fellowship during a potluck of snacks desserts and coffee
every Tuesday afternoon followed by a live concert of country/southern, old fashioned, gospel music, the way they
remember it.  It has become a time of promoting a "Community of Unity" among the seniors in the Yuma area.

In a time when there is such a variety of entertainment available, some stand out as just a little different than the others.   Ron and Opal do
not just sing together, they perform as a dynamic duo. This couple has entertained and shared in ministry through their music of classic
country & southern gospel singing with Ron playing a variety of instruments, (steel guitar, acoustic guitar, bass, banjo & accordion).

Ron and Opal were the recipients of the Vocal Duo of the Year award from the Country Hayride Opry several years ago.  In 2009 they
were honored to receive the Country Gospel Connection Choice Awards "Duo of the Year."  They also received the 2007,  2008, and 2011  
CGMA (Country Gospel Music Association) International Duo of the Year Award.  And in 2012 they received the CGMA Platinum Heart
International Duo of the Year Award.

Ron is an accomplished steel guitarist who has appeared on several country music shows throughout the mid-west.  He was a
regular member of the K.C. Opry in Kansas City, MO for 12 years as a featured singer and steel guitarist for the house band.  He was also
a band member on the Country Hayride Opry in Excelsior Springs, MO and made regular appearances on Cousin Pud’s Country Jamboree
for several years.  

Opal grew up in south Georgia singing classic country and southern style gospel music in church.  She has been a featured singer on
all of the shows Ron has worked and you’ll find that she has one of the most outstanding female voices ever heard in country and gospel
music.  Opal received the 2009 Central Division CGMA Female Vocalist of the Year award in Branson, MO.

After relocating to Branson in 1991, Ron & Opal took their own show on the road in 2000, performing for RV resorts, RV rallies, car
shows and ministering in traditional churches, Cowboy Churches and many other events all across America.   For three years they were
the official ambassadors on the road for the "Roy Rogers & Dale Evans Theater and Museum" in Branson, MO.  So from the fabulous fifties
and cowboy harmonies to Southern Gospel, it just doesn't get much better than that.

Don't miss an opportunity to see and hear one of America's most loved couples.
