VICKI LAWRENCE'S comedic adventures as Thelma Mae Harper - better known as Mama - began on the classic and much-loved Carol Burnett Show. Soon after, Vicki starred in six seasons of Mama's Family throughout the 1980s until the final episode in February of 1990. Along with her TV success, Vicki can claim the original recording of the hit song The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia. Her recording of the song climbed the charts in the early 1970s. Mama's Family: The Complete Series featuring all 130 episodes is now available for purchase online at timelife.com.

Tune in for my conversation with Vicki Lawrence about the hilarious Mama's Family. This In The Country special presentation also features music from Canadian artists: Alberta group Domino, Saskatchewan's Samara Yung & Ontario's Zac Wrixon.
