Branson comes to Sun Lakes
John Wayne estate contracted for a look a like to do a TV commercial, and Ermal was chosen. He turned his acting career into a sketch of monologues on his Career, his patriotism, and his faith.
Ermal and his wife Paula, a mountain girl with a great voice and an award winning yodeler, helped make the evening very interesting and uplifting. They are also in demand for Cowboy Churches around the nation.
I told him that John put Chandler Az on the map as one of his retreats from doing movies in the AZ high country. He brought his star friends to the Sheraton San Marcos for golf, swimming, dining and drinking. The bar he stood at is still there today. My golf club is on land he bought during those decades.
