Isaacs Warmly Received At Grand Ole Opry
The crowd was into their singing from the first song, “The Living Years”, but when they sang “Mr. In-Between” and the ladies broke into those close harmony parts, you could actually hear some swooning going though the crowd.
For their last two numbers special guest Bill Gaither joined them on stage. The audience cheered when Bill joined them on the a capella rendition of “Walk Together Children”, however with the final song of the classic Dottie Rambo tune “If That Isn't Love” the crowd erupted giving them a standing ovation.
