LOS ANGELES, Calif., Nov. 1, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — On the Saturday night before Thanksgiving, country artist Sandra Piller will perform a special show featuring songs written by her mother-in-law.

“Ruth and her main writing partner, Bill Katz, created a great many songs that were part of what used to be called The Hit Parade,” Piller states. “I was so very proud of my mom-in-law, and it was always exciting to be part of such a creative family,” she adds. Roberts’ son Michael, Sandra’s late husband, was executive producer and writer for the “Star Trek” franchise, while her son Shawn is producer of shows like “Dead Zone” and “Haven.”
