Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Guy Lee Hovis, Jr. (born September 24, 1941), is an American-born singer who, along with his former wife, Ralna English of West Texas, was one of the featured acts of television's The Lawrence Welk Show. Born and reared in Tupelo, Mississippi, he was the son of an officer from the Mississippi Highway Patrol. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Mississippi at Oxford. After a two-year stint in the Army, Hovis decided to try a career as a musical performer in Hollywood. His first break came with an appearance on the House Party television program hosted by Art Linkletter on CBS; following that, he teamed with David Blaylock as the singing duo of Guy & David, which led to a recording contract with ABC Records. After the duo broke up, Hovis was a soloist again, performing in Los Angeles nightclubs such as The Horn in Santa Monica; it was there he met his future wife and singing partner Ralna English. They wed in January 1969.show more
