“Keith Bilbrey has countless friends and no enemies,” shares Governor Mike Huckabee. “He’s been a friend, colleague, and confidant to the biggest names in entertainment as well as to the folks who swept the floors and opened the doors of the fabled Grand Ole Opry where he served as announcer for 35 years. When the historic home in which he and his beloved Emy Joe lived burned to the ground, the common question among those who love him has been “What can we do to help Keith?” That was the genesis of ‘Coming Home: Rebuilding The Bilbreys’ on July 15 to bring together artists, musicians, songwriters, producers, promoters, and all the support people of the entertainment world of Nashville to extend their encouragement and this financial support as they get back on their feet. The response has been tremendous and we hope that the combined love of Nashville will surround Keith and Emy Joe with encouragement and needed resources.
When I started looking for an announcer for Larry’s Country Diner, I needed someone that could react quickly, intelligently and that knew the history of country music,” shares Larry Black. “Keith Bilbrey was all of those things; we could not have asked for a better co-host. As a matter of fact, it could just as easily be named Keith’s Kafé instead of Larry’s Country Diner.”
