Hit Variety Show Dubbed 2015 ICGMA "TV Show Of The Year"

Seasons come and seasons go, but no matter what rain comes their way, the cast of Larry’s Country Diner always finds the sun. This fall, tune in to RFD-TV for new episodes of the hit music and comedy variety show, featuring performances from artists like Wade Hayes, John Conlee and Joey+Rory in September. Then, in October, celebrity guests fill in for the diner’s beloved host, Larry Black as he continues his recovery from a serious ATV accident.

“Witnessing the way in which the whole cast and production teams have come together to make sure the show continues on without a hitch despite my absence, has been incredibly heart-warming and inspiring to say the least. I have a first-class team behind me and knowing that helps me heal up even faster!” said Black.

Though Black has suffered a broken back, two punctured lungs and other injuries due to the crash, he was able to be present as a bystander at the show’s most recent tapings. Black hopes to be back hosting shows in coming months.

Until then, tune in this fall in September for never-before-seen episodes featuring performances by Hayes, Conlee, Joey + Rory, Carl Jackson and Orthophonic Joy, before new episodes in October featuring celebrity guest hosts.

In addition, on August 8, the International Country Gospel Music Association (ICGMA) awarded Larry’s Country Diner the 2015 ICGMA Award for “TV Show Of The Year.”

One of the show’s leading cast members, Renae The Waitress, was present at the ceremony in West Plains, Missouri to accept the award, and said, “You guys just don't know how thrilled we are to receive this award! On behalf of the whole cast, the Sheriff, Keith, Nadine and our boss, Larry, thank you for this honor. When our first show aired in 2009 we had no idea that we would still be on the air six years later. We are so thankful that we have a platform to bring wholesome family entertainment into homes every week, and that we are able to start our tapings with a prayer and our shows with a promise. Thank you again for this award and I think it should be placed right by the cash register in the diner!”
