Russell fools audience at Dixie Stampede

Russell fools audience at Dixie Stampede

Jimbo Whaley with The Dixie Stampede asked Russell to come and take part in a production of their Christmas show. It was a chance to show just how spectacular the show is.  And for Russell to ride a camel.

The plan was for Russell to to be one of the wise men in the nativity scene. First, he had to get used to riding a camel. After a wobbly start, Russell managed to get the hang of things. Dressed in an amazing costume, he was almost unrecognizable to the audience until he was introduced at the end of the show.

Peace by Piece: A new gallery in Gatlinburg

The Smokies inspire a lot of artists in East Tennessee, including one stained glass maker.

She established her art studio and gallery in Gatlinburg in a renovated 200 year old cabin.

"If I come to work for eight hours a day I want to be in here," Sandy Sgrillo said.

She calls it Peace by Piece.

"It brings me peace. P-E-A-C-E. It brings me peace and each piece is done one at a time. Peace by Piece," she said.

She makes one piece of stained glass at a time.
