Sadly, it's the end of a video voting era as GAC-TV's charismatic Top 20 Country Countdown host Nan Kelley announced Friday that after 13 years at the helm she will no longer be the wonderful familiar face of Top 20. Below is what she shared in an emotional Facebook post. Be sure to tune in and/or set your DVRs as she bids farewell. The final show is scheduled to air December 22nd, 23rd and on Saturday the 29th all at 5 a.m. and 7 a.m. central. She will be greatly missed. It does not seem that the countdown will continue without her (and really, why should it bother?). Browse through memorable show photos here.
Nan Kelley via Facebook "For over a dozen years, I've hosted the Top 20 Countdown on GAC and I've loved every minute. With this weekend's airings, we say goodbye and thanks, as our show signs off the air. What a ride it's been-full of lifelong memories. Thank you to the artists and their teams for the interviews and the friendships. Thanks to the Nashville music community for the support in the good times & the tough ones. And to those who really made it happen--the crews, both past and present. You're the ones who made this show-and me-look and sound great through your talents. GAC, thank you for this opportunity. And lastly and most importantly, thank YOU the viewers. Without you, shows wouldn't exist. Making a connection with you that was real and sincere has always been the most important part of the job for me. Your emails, cards and letters of support for me and the show have truly meant the world to me! Thank you. I won't be exiting the TV world. You can catch me on QVC, representing the Le Creuset brand and looking forward to other projects in the works. I wish all of you a happy, healthy 2019!!!"
Hi. I'm a member of the country club. Country Music is what I love.
Are you somewhere that you don't belong? Without a jukebox and a country song? Maybe you came here seeking a nice, bright, sunny, resort-y kind of place. The kind of place festooned with ferns. Maybe this was even your LAST resort. We hope not. But don't worry, we still have the best of intentions with this blog - you might not find a lot of tennis but we still intend to raise a racket now and then. (In other words --- although you will sometimes find press releases here we net ORIGINAL content too).
