The All Things Southern Super Show — it’s almost here!

Hey, y’all! Sometimes I wonder how it is that I get involved in the Lucy Ricardo escapades that seem to be a regular part of my life. This would be one of those times…

Several weeks ago an opportunity was presented to me to host my own thirty minute TV special (on Super Bowl Sunday at that!) and to possibly  produce a regular weekly talk show. Not having the good sense to be intimidated, my only trepidation was the short time I would have to tape the first show.

In a perfect world HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHHAHAHAHAHA, excuse me, I would’ve loved the time to plan and rehearse, plan and rehearse, and plan and rehearse until I was sure that I was presenting the best show I could possibly offer. (Did I mention I would’ve liked to plan?!)

Instead, I had to use the weekend travel time on my way to and from speaking at the Cowgirl Convention 2012 in Tyler, TX to sketch out the show, set up an interview, decide on a cooking segment, write a spoof of the ESPN commentators (called ATSN), and rope in several suckers friends to help me pull it all off the following Monday!

To say that it was easy to get up to speed reading the teleprompter, taking hand signals from the camera men, and talking to the correct camera in ONE morning without any practice time or run-throughs would require a big fat lie that I’m not willing to tell. And yet– this silly belle had fun, big fun! It was sort of smooth in some parts and sort of rough in others but I’m hoping my southern viewers will decide that it averages out and enjoy the effort in a “Bless her heart, she’s willing to put herself out there, isn’t she?” kind of way.

The All Things Southern Super Show will air tomorrow morning, Feb. 5th at 10:00 A.M. on NBC 10 right before they start their “road to the Super Bowl coverage”.  (I’m asking folks who would normally be at church to DVR it and not to dare miss church! I don’t want that on my conscience! 🙂 I hope to have the whole show online soon for my out-of-town friends on new media site that’s under construction. Right now local viewers, here’s the deal: We’ll be deciding whether or not to do a regular show based TOTALLY on your FEEDBACK. So…if you enjoy the show, I need you to call KTVE  at (318) 323-1972  or leave a message on their Facebook wall and let them know.  (Actually, I suppose out of towners that can’t see the show could also call that number and write on their wall to help me gauge the interest and plan the next step.) THX, y’all, we’ll see what happens from here!

Hugs, Shellie

Special thanks to those friends: Rodney Ray, Stacy Thornton, Rhonda Perry, Chrys Howard and Jenny Remsberg! I appreciate y’all~

    I’ll look and see if we can get this on 5 in Dallas/Ft. Worth area. Went to get your book and CD after Cowgirl Get Together and you were already gone. Of course, we took time taking pics before I got out there. Sure hope you get to come in May for our Mother’s Day Banquet (Ellis Co. Cowboy Church). I can’t wait to see and hear you again. You are so uplifting, funny and Spirit filled…….Thanks!!!!

    • Hey Marti! I appreciate your words. I’m afraid the show isn’t available in Dallas– yet 🙂
      I wish I could tell you that I was coming in May, but we got together and checked my calendar and I was already booked in Shrevpot. Maybe next time! Take care and God Bless!
