Gabriel Communications was started in 1996; owned and operated by long-time disc jockey Larry Black, the company specialises in 'Reunion Videos'.  Larry Black first applied the 'Reunion Video' concept to the legends of country music.

The idea was simple: ask the great people who shaped country music to get together and talk about their history and sing a few songs; hence Gene Watson had been asked to take part in January 2008.
