About Kay Bain
Kay Bain
 
Kay Bain was born in Corinth, Mississippi, and began to sing when she was just four years old.  After being involved in many school plays and musicals, Kay was invited at the age of thirteen to sing on Buddy Bain's Farm And Home Hour on WCMA in Corinth.  After graduating high school, she joined Buddy Bain and the Buddies, opening shows for stars like Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Roy Orbison, and many stars of the Grand Ole Opry.

In March of 1957, The Buddy Bain Show made its first appearance on WTVA as a half-hour show airing live on Wednesday nights.  Buddy and Kay married soon after on June 22, 1957.

Later, Buddy and Kay were asked to host the Sunshine Talent Showcase, featuring guests like Tammy Wynette.  They continued to work in radio alongside their weekly live telecasts, and were invited to perform at the Grand Ole Opry for the first of several times in 1971.

In October of 1978, Buddy and Kay once again returned to WTVA, this time to host a daily program called Mornin'.  Among the nationally-known celebrities who have shared a cup of coffee with them were Art Linkletter, Patsy Montana, J.D. Sumner, and Bill Anderson.  Country superstar Tim McGraw made his first television appearance on the show in 1991.  The popularity of Mornin' led to Buddy and Kay receiving an invitation in 1994 to appear on the syndicated country music show Hee Haw.

Buddy and Kay were always on the road, entertaining at nursing homes, festivals, and special events across the area.  Their charitable work with organizations like the American Cancer Society, the American Heart Association, and the Diabetes Foundation was honored multiple times, including a declaration of November 3, 1996 as "Buddy And Kay Day" by the Mississippi Legislature.

Kay has continued her charitable work and entertaining since Buddy's passing in 1997, earning her own recognition for her dedicated efforts for charitable organizations.  And she continues to bring her many fans Kay Bain's Saturday Mornin' Show, continuing a legacy of music and entertainment that has made her legend.  She's proud to be part of the WTVA family, and to be able to share her special gifts with people all over North Mississippi.
