Ava Barber

Today is Ava Barber's birthday, and lets take the time to salute this talented music maker!

Born and raised in Knoxville, TN....she spent her life in country music performing around town as a kid, and it was when she was a teenager when she met and married drummer Roger Sullivan.

And it was in 1974....thanks to some wishful think with the maestro at the golf course, she with help from Roger, scored an audition and was hired onto the Lawrence's "Country Gal".

She's got country music hits such as "Waiting At The End Of Your Run" and "Bucket To The South" and once co-owned with Dick Dale the Rainbow Theater in Pigeon Forge. Today, she still sings to a new generation of fans nationwide and has been a part of both Four Wunnerful Women and Live Lawrence Welk Show concert tours.
