Roni Stoneman To Perform At Red Cross Barn Party
July 31, 2009
Roni Stoneman is the youngest daughter of Ernest V. "Pop" Stoneman, patriarch of the Stoneman Family, one of the most famous family groups in early country music. Drawing on his Southern Appalachian heritage, Pop Stoneman realized as early as 1924 the commercial potential of traditional music, and carved a career from it. That year, he wrote country music’s first million-dollar seller, "The Sinking of the Titanic." The Stoneman Family also won the Country Music Academy’s "Vocal Group of the Year Award" in 1967.
In the 1970s, Stoneman reached a national audience when she joined the cast of Hee Haw, the most successful syndicated program and country music show in the history of television.
“I am excited for this opportunity to support the Red Cross and the work that they do in the community,“ Stoneman said.

The Red Cross is NOT a government agency and depends on generous gifts from the community to respond to disasters around the clock and around the block. This fundraiser will help your local Red Cross serve your neighbors in need in Middle Tennessee every day!
