  1. Gary is my Dad! They did a tour with the Hee Haw gang, which was hosted by Minnie Pearl and Grandpa Jones. It also included Marty Robbins, Connie Le Stich and Fats Domino as well as a few others. Homegrown was Connie’s backing band. They also opened for Charlie Pride and Janie Fricke at Memorial Arena. Tony Meriano indeed was the drummer. He just recently passed away.
