Their Sunday Morning Worship Service that began in 1992 has continued to be a source of inspiration to the thousands of Branson visitors who attend each year. Countless people say. “A trip to Branson is not complete without being with Barbara and Roy on Sunday Morning.” Their special Veteran’s Service, is so important to them, held during Branson’s Veteran’s Homecoming Week in November. Barb and Roy believe we owe more to our Veteran’s than we could ever repay and take every opportunity to let our nation’s heroes know how important they are. Barbara and Roy’s faith is their foundation and the most important aspect of their lives.

Barbara has just created a very special teddy bear, Teddy Bearchild, and written a book called, “Hi I’m Teddy” to raise funds for children with Autism. This is a perfect time because 2012 marked the 40th year since Barbara Recorded, “The Teddy Bear Song” in 1972. This precious teddy bear and his wonderful children’s book, “Hi I’m Teddy” is such a great way to teach children to embrace and include little ones who have special needs. We can all benefit and we can learn from this simple message. This project will be a major focus for Barbara currently and in the years to come.

Throughout Barbara’s exciting and extensive career she has received many awards and honors. Her nomination for two prestigious Grammy Awards, one for her #1 country hit, “The Teddy Bear Song” and the other in the music for children category, “Lullaby for Teddy.” These are highlights in her career. She is recognized as one of the finest female entertainers in Country Music. Barbara was one of Ralph Emery’s favorite guests during the years he hosted the top-rated “Nashville Now” show on the TNN television network. Ralph even trusted her to be a guest host for him at times in his absence. Through that show Barbara Fairchild became a household name to thousands of viewers.

Barbara’s talent has not diminished through the years and you can often see her these days on the RFD Network along with many of her peers on the very popular “Country Family Reunion” and ‘Larry’s Diner’ hosted by Larry Black and Bill Anderson.

She was inducted into the Arkansas Entertainer’s Hall of Fame and recently in October of 2012 had a star place in the Arkansas Walk Way of Fame in Hot Springs, Arkansas. These honors mean a great deal to Barbara because she is very proud of her home state.

Among the many television appearances during her career include,

“The Tonight Show,” Hee Haw,” “A Salute to Country Music,”

“The CMA Country Music Awards,” and the three part special,

“A Country Homecoming,” hosted by Ralph Emery. She has

made several appearances on CBN (The 700 Club) and TBN

and two tribute specials to the Legendary Dottie Rambo.

She was thrilled to host her own TV Special,

“Barbara Fairchild In England” on the BBC

network, just to name a few.
