Mary Lou Turner was born on June 13, 1947, in Hazard, Kentucky. She began her career as a regular on the Wheeling Jamboree in the early 1970s, and in 1974 signed to replace Jan Howard as the "girl singer" (who had left to pursue her solo career full-time) on The Bill Anderson Show, both his touring show and syndicated TV series.
