Diane Diekman’s first report from the Faron Young book launch

Diane Diekman, author of Live Fast, Love Hard: The Faron Young Story, posted a quick paragraph about the November 10 book launch and Country Deputies reunion concert in Nashville.

“We had a wonderful time at the Ernest Tubb Record Shops on Saturday. Seeing the Country Deputies on stage that evening and listening to them perform was an absolute thrill for me. Thanks so much to Ray Emmett for getting the band together, Darrell McCall for hosting the show, Robyn Young for opening the show, and David McCormick for making it happen. What made it so unusual was that the Deputies disbanded in 1993, and the musicians on stage covered several generations of the band. I called the roll of 59 Deputies from 1954-1993. Thirteen of the 40 living members were present. I hope to have photos posted to my Web site by next week.”
