    Pre-Lot Text

    Shining just as brightly as his rhinestone encrusted Nudie suits, Porter Wagoner's career shone both as a performer and producer. While inextricably linked to Dolly Parton and the Grand Ole Opry, no one can forget it was The Porter Wagoner Show and its host that both maintained and spread the classic country style and lifestyle during changing times. As the most widely syndicated country show in the nation Porter Wagoner, and others on the show with him, were known far and wide. The Porter Wagoner Show was a staple in many American households who revered the old styles of country music.
