Having spent, collectively, about a century entertaining audiences from county fairs to Radio City Music Hall, Donny and Marie Osmond have learned to adapt.

It’s Marie’s turn now, as vocal fatigue has sidelined Donny for the time being in their resident headliner show at Flamingo Las Vegas. Marie will be joined onstage during duets with Shane Baker, who has performed with her on her solo tour, “A Little Bit Country and a Whole Lot More,” and made his Flamingo debut with her Wednesday night.

Shane’s father is renowned country music songwriter and producer Gary Baker, a member of Marie’s band years ago. In 1994, Gary Baker collaborated with Frank J. Myers on the Grammy Award-winning John Michael Montgomery hit “I Swear.” Shane Baker is an accomplished artist and producer based in the rich country music enclave of Muscle Shoals, Ala.

A representative of Marie Osmond says Baker will perform with Marie “until further notice,” or when Osmond is cleared to return to the stage. If he were an athlete, he’d be listed as “day to day.”
