RCA Stars In Concert Tour (1969)

Although not signed to the label, COUNTRY FEVER were invited to join the 'RCA Stars In Concert' tour in November 1969 on a star-studded bill with a number of the label's successful recording artists.  Not only were they given their own spot on the show but they also backed both CONNIE SMITH and NAT STUCKEY throughout the tour.  Other artists who appeared were; GEORGE HAMILTON IV, BOBBY BARE, SKEETER DAVIS, CHET ATKINS & THE HILLSIDERS.

 

The tour lasted for two weeks.  They played two London dates - 'Walthamstow Granada' and the 'Royal Albert Hall' and venues in Germany, Holland, Denmark, Finland, Sweeden and Norway.

 

After their performances at the first date on the tour 'Walthamstow Granada' Nat Stuckey announced that he would like to record with Country Fever over here and Connie Smith said that if she could afford them she would take them back to the States as her backing group!  Neither materialised, however, Nat Stuckey returned to the US and named his next album after them 'Country Fever'!
