In 1975 Marlow opened and operated Marlow's Country Palace in Pikeville, Kentucky. His career flourished there for 30 years. Quite often I brought in some big name musicians and they filled up the place. When a George Jones, Percy Sledge or Gary Stewart played I had to fill up the dance floor with chairs. At one George Jones show I seated 1,190 fans.

He got a break in 1977. I did a show in Lexington, Kentucky and Ralph Emory was the M.C. The program was broadcast live nationwide on 120 radio stations. That opened the door for me. Ralph got me on his early morning radio show which was broadcast throughout the southeastern United States. He then booked me on his 'Pop Goes the Country' TV show. That led to a couple appearances on the "Porter Wagoner Show" That chain of events got me national exposure and a RCA recording contract. I was on the "Grand Ol' Opry" when I signed with RCA. At one time I had four songs on the Billboard Magazine charts before RCA signed me.

Throughout his career, Marlow has met and performed for many dignitaries from senators to representatives to vice presidents to presidents. yet he has never forgotten his roots which are buried deep in the rocky, hillside soil of eastern Kentucky. Part of U.S. Route 23 highway in Pike County is named 'The Marlow Tackett Highway' in his honor. Since the days of Marlow's Country Palace, he is staying busy doing more than 100 shows a year. Marlow has recorded 14 albums featuring every genre of music from country to rock and roll to blues and gospel. "I'm doing a lot more songwriting now and singing more gospel music. I have cut a new gospel CD to be released soon and I will be busy promoting it nationwide." Ten of the 12 songs are original Marlow Tackett songs. The title of the new CD is 'A New Set of Wings'.

Sometimes, Says Marlow, "I look back and wonder if all was the was the right decision." Sometimes people just have to follow their heart. Not only was the best money here at home but my heart was here in the mountains with people I love." Not only has Marlow Tackett become famous as an entertainer, he is just as well known for his humanitarian work. In addition to keeping The Country Palace going, Marlow finds time to play and sing at schools, churches and political gatherings. He is a very generous man who tries to accommodate anyone with a worthwhile cause. Marlow Tackett loves GOD above all else!
