Personal Quote:

Trivia:

First country music performer to be surprised with their life story on the 1950's series "This Is Your Life". Though stunned by the surprise, Minnie Pearl knew this was her big chance on network television and milked her appearance for all the comedy she could muster, leading to a highly active career as a guest performer on scores of non-country variety programs and talk shows.
