Scotty and DJ performed with Ronnie McDowall and his band along with Millie Kirkham and the Jordanaires again for two shows at The Welk Resort in Branson, MO.  The shows were on April 8th and 9th and a few of them hitched a ride up from Nashville on the 7th in Ronnie's tour bus.  Ronnie Dean's wife Dana was kind enough to share a few pictures from the trip and the show.  While in town they hooked up with Tony Orlando who came by for one of the shows.  You may well remember Tony's hit songs and TV show in the '70s.
