John Berry and Crystal Gayle co-host the 2001 Christian Country Music Awards Thursday at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. Larry Gatlin, Jeff Carson, Tammy Cochran, Bryan White, Marty Raybon and Stella Parton are slated to appear. Organizers say a group of satellite networks covering 140 million homes have agreed to carry the show. Merle Haggard, scheduled to appear, canceled weekend appearances because of chest pains. 10/31/01
