Singing as a duo, Ralna English and Guy Hovis performed together regularly on "The Lawrence Welk Show" from 1970 to 1982. After their divorce in 1984, the singers embarked on solo musical careers, with Hovis leaving music in 1990 to work as state director for Mississippi senator Trent Lott.
According to Ralna, Guy and her were passionately in love but never really liked each other. Guy and Ralna split shortly after the birth of their daughter in 1978. Two years after their divorce in 1980, Ralna had a nervous breakdown which she overcame.
Guy got a real break when he was asked to appear on Art Linkletter's House Party. Although the time line is a little unclear to me, it was during this period that Guy and Ralna English met and married, and also that Guy and David Blaylock formed a duo called - not much imagination here - Guy and David.
