Our Saturday Night Headliner for 2020 is the incomparable Jim Stafford !
Jim wrote and recorded his first chart making song, The Swamp Witch in 1974. He followed with a gold single, Spiders and Snakes, which stayed on the American pop charts for 26 weeks. The hits just kept coming and included My Girl Bill, Wildwood Weed, and Cow Patti, written for the Clint Eastwood movie, Any Which Way You Can. Jim launched his television career with The Jim Stafford Show on ABC in 1975. Jim also hosted 56 episodes of Nashville on the Road and made 26 appearances on the Tonight Show. In 1987 & 1988, Jim was a regular performer and head writer/producer for the Emmy-nominated Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour. Jim wrote many of the songs for which he is famous and has brought his inimitable style to several movie soundtracks. He has released his second classical guitar album Somewhere In Time and recently released another album Don't Tell Mama I'm A Guitar Picker. Jim’s first love has always been live performance. This love brought him to Branson, Missouri, where he owns a theater and entertains visitors year long.
