Down Home Country (Series) (1975)

Tom Gallant, a New Brunswick singer and songwriter, was the star and host of Down Home Country, a summer replacement for The Tommy Hunter Show. Down Home Country featured new, principally Canadian, talent. Guests included Chad Allan from Winnipeg, "Diamond" Joe White from Calgary, Colleen Peterson and Sneezy Waters, both from Ottawa, Jesse Winchester, the U.S. expatriate living in Montreal, John Edmunds from Cape Breton Island, Hal Marks, Myrna Lorrie, the Good Brothers. The show also reached farther out for prestigious country music performers from the United States, such as Kenny Rogers, Waylon Jennings, and Jessi Colter.

Gallant was supported musically by a trio of singers called Blue Jane (Stephanie Taylor, Diane Miller and Judi Richards).
