I will always have a special place in my heart for Kathy, June, Kim and Christy: the fabulous Forester Sisters from the New Salem community on the Georgia side of Lookout Mountain in Dade County.
In my early TV career, they were about to become country music superstars, and they were kind enough to let me spend a day with them, and do the news story you can see below.
The Macon Telegraph has done a wonderful story on June, and her daughter Canaan, who is about to graduate from the Georgia Academy for the Blind. You can read it here, and I hope you’ll share with your friends, it is a great story about two wonderful women. I thought I knew everything there is to know about the Foresters, but I learned a lot from reading the story, and I bet you will too! By the way, I can’t wait to hear Canaan on the radio this summer!
