About 100 students filled the audience for the special, produced by Jim Owens Productions and interviewer Lorriane Crook. The special will air at a future date on the cable country music channel.

Her hits include “She’s In Love With the Boy,” “That’s What I Like About You,” “The Woman Before Me,” “XXX’s and OOO’s,” “A Perfect Love,” and “Walkaway Joe.”
