JOHNNY RODRIGUEZ & JEANNIE SEELY
Opening Act: DALLAS WAYNE
LOVE THAT RODRIGUEZ SOUND……
In 1979, Johnny moved from Mercury to Epic Records, where he worked with producer Billy Sherrill. His debut album with Epic, “Rodriguez”, contained with one exception, songs written by Johnny. His successes included: “What’ll I Tell Virginia”, “Love Look At Us Now”, “North Of The Border”, “Foolin”, “How Could I Love Her So Much”, and “Rose Of My Heart”.
The union of producer Tom Collins and Capitol Records in 1987 resulted in Rodriguez’ album titled “Gracias”, which contained such hits as “I Didn’t (Every Chance I Had)”, “I Want To Wake Up With You” and “You Might Want To Use Me Again”. In 1993, Johnny recorded “Run For The Border” on Intersound and in 1996 he reunited with the Dea/Kennedy team to truly capture the fire and magic of their past collaborations with the creation of “You Can Say That Again”.
In the past 40 years, Johnny has released 35 albums and charted 45 singles. He has beat the pavement touring in every state in the U.S. and enjoys an enormous response when touring overseas in countries such as Switzerland, England, S. Korea, France, Spain, East & West Germany, Japan, Belgium, Guam, Poland, Canada and Mexico.
JEANNIE SEELY – “Miss Country Soul”
Today Jeannie Seely chuckles when she recalls her decision to move to Nashville in the fall of 1965. “It’s true,” she says, “that I only had $50 and a Ford Falcon to my name”.
Actually, the blonde, blue-eyed singer brought a lot more than that to Music City. She had natural talent, striking intelligence, and a strong determination to turn her dreams into reality.
Less than a month after moving, Jeannie was hired by Porter Wagoner as the female singer for his road show and television series. Despite being initially turned down by every record label in town, within six months she was in the studio recording the first of many hit songs. Within a year Jeannie was singing on the world famous Grand Ole Opry stage, where she still performs on a regular basis.
