The story goes that little Shotgun Red was found in a Minnesota hobby shop by Steve Hall.

If you ask Shotgun, he might tell the tale vice versa. Whichever you believe, Red became the emcee for Steve's band.

From there, the group's path to stardom began.

After winning a "Battle of the Bands" contest, the band traveled to Nashville for the final competition.

While in Music City, Steve and Red "crashed" country broadcast legend Ralph Emery's morning show.

Ralph instantly took a liking to the quick witted Shotgun Red and asked him (with his right hand man, Steve, of course,) to come back to Nashville and be a guest with him on TNN's new flagship series, "Nashville Now!" The rest is history.

Shotgun Red was a regular member of the "Nashville Now!" cast for over ten years. He also appeared for eight years on one of country music's most successful syndicated and cable network TV programs, Hee Haw, and even hosted TNN's first music video show, "Country Clips," for six years. Steve Hall is the main attraction on the General Jackson Showboat in Nashville TN.

Currently you can see Steve and his little buddy Shotgun Red and the entire Shotgun Red Band on “The Shotgun Red Variety Show” on RFD TV Thursday nights, Friday Mornings and Sunday afternoon.

Steve Hall, Shotgun Red and the Shotgun Red Show features two great impersonators, Roger Francis and Jennifer Bruce out of Nashville, TN. They perform Impressions of over 30 country music artists along with pretty Miss Sheila!

Get ready to laugh and have a great time. Don’t miss this great country comedy impression show.

Come witness impressions of over 30 artists: Eddie Arnold, Patsy Cline, George Jones, Tammy Wynette, Jim Reeves, Elvis Presley, Brenda Lee, Freddie Fender, James Taylor, Anne Murray, Willie Nelson, Etta James and the list goes on and on.

• 15 years on the General Jackson Showboat in Nashville, TN.
