Louise got her own turn as a featured recording artist, signing with Epic Records in 1978 and over several years she released a string of chart-climbing singles, including the hit country version of the Peaches & Herb song Reunited, which was recorded as a duet with her then husband, producer/songwriter R.C. Bannon.
