Following are a few of the many locations to purchase the above recordings containing Jeannie's songs:


Life's Highway

Jeannie Seely displays an infectious smile when she explains how her bluegrass and acoustic project has been on her "to do" list for the past several years. "I'm so happy that I was asked to make this CD," she states. "It was a lot of fun to put it together and work with such talented people."

Life's Highway was released on OMS Records (www.OMSRecords.com), an independent label that features bluegrass and classic country music. The project was produced by Hugh Moore and Billy Troy.

"I'll always be grateful to my late friend Johnny Russell for planting the seeds for this album," notes Jeannie. "It was the last of many gifts he gave me." OMS Records' second release was a critically-acclaimed all-acoustic rendering of Johnny Russell's famous song repertoire.

Jeannie enlisted the help of several friends, heroes, and Opry members as special guests on Life's Highway. The tracks were recorded at Hilltop Studio in Nashville.

From the Opry family are the mandolin sounds of Bobby Osborne, Buck White, and Jesse McReynolds, the guitar work of Steve Wariner, the banjo pickin' of Sonny Osborne, and the harmony vocals of Charlie Louvin, The Osborne Brothers, and The Whites.

Life's Highway features the famous Dobro of the inimitable Josh Graves who created his sound on the Opry with Lester Flatt & Earl Scruggs - and changed bluegrass and country music forever.

Rob Ickes, who has been awarded "Instrumental Performer of the Year" multiple times by the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA), also plays Dobro on Jeannie's project.

Grammy and IBMA honored Glen Duncan, with literally hundreds of Opry appearances to his credit, contributes his fiddle mastery to each track on the album.

"I certainly don't take lightly how fortunate I've been to be a part of the Grand Old Opry and to meet, know, listen, and work with such a talented group of country music artists that I'm also able to call my fiends," Jeannie notes.

In recent years Jeannie's recordings have included the duet "I'm Ready To Go" on Ralph Stanley's Clinch Mountain Sweethearts album which earned the 2002 "Recorded Event of the Year" Award from the International Bluegrass Music Association.

Jeannie also appeared on the 2002 album Bluegrass Goes To Town: Pop Songs Bluegrass Style, singing the Janis Joplin hit "Piece Of My Heart" with John Hartford.

Life' Highway contains two of Jeannie's own compositions - the up tempo "Roarin' And Runnin'" and "Call Of Kentucky", a tune that would unquestionably win approval from her late Opry friend Bill Monroe.

Songs written by fellow Opry members and friends Bill Anderson ("Cry Myself To Sleep") and Dolly Parton ("The Good Ole Days") are also included. "The Next Voice You Hear" was composed by another of Jeannie's heroes, prolific songwriter and Country Music Hall of Fame member Cindy Walker.

Jeannie dedicates A.P. Carter's "I'll Be All Smiles Tonight" to the memory of John and Marie Hartford. "I was asked to sing this song at their wedding and then again at the memorial for my friend Marie," she writes in the album notes.

The legendary Ernest Tubb once said, "Whether a new song or an old one, when Jeannie sings it, it becomes 'Jeannie's song'." Jeannie lives up to that assessment on songs ranging from the '90's Garth Brooks' hit "The River" to the ever-classic "I've Got My Baby On My Mind".

Jeannie provides a captivating rendition of "It's A Heartache", a tune made popular in the 1980's by both Bonnie Tyler and Juice Newton. With its catching arrangement on Life's Highway, the song has been afforded a whole new life.

"I've always had the highest respect for the harmony of bluegrass music," Jeannie states. With harmony vocal assistance from friends Sharon and Cheryl White, Jeannie revisits the Whites' own 1985 hit, "If It Ain't Love".

On the title track, Jeannie takes Steve Wariner's No.1 hit from 1986 for a ride on her own acoustic journey - with some assistance from Steve himself on guitar.

"I'm extremely proud of all the musicians and artists who contributed their talent to this project", summarizes Jeannie. "I am truly grateful that our paths crossed on Life's Highway.

On November 15, 2003, OMS Records held a "CD Release Party" for Life's Highway in conjunction with the weekly broadcast of the world-famous Midnite Jamboree. Jeannie served as host of the Jamboree and welcomed a long list of special guests that included Charlie Louvin, Jennifer O'Brien, Terri Williams, Uncle Josh Graves, Hugh Moore, Billy Troy, Jean Shepard, and Jack Greene.

Vintage Country
Old But Treasured

Country recordings by Grand Ole Opry star Jeannie Seely span six decades with the release of her CD titled Vintage Country: Old But Treasured. "I love that title," remarked Eddie Stubbs during an interview with Jeannie on his WSM radio show. "Was that your idea?"

"Yes, it was," replied Jeannie, who added with a chuckle, "and like I always joke onstage, I'm speaking about the music when I say old but treasured."

Early in her career, Jeannie's deeply moving vocals earned her the nickname of "Miss Country Soul", a title that is still frequently used. Jeannie's recording of "Don't Touch Me" earned her a Grammy Award for the "Best Country Vocal Performance by a Female", and a live Opry performance of that classic song is included as a bonus track on her new Vintage Country CD.

With one exception, the remaining tracks are all traditional country songs that were previously recorded by others. "As I wrote in the liner notes, it wasn't my intention to 'cover' any of those great performances by some of the most talented artists of our time," explains Jeannie, "but rather to record these wonderful old songs in the way I hear and feel them."

"In talking with my fans," Jeannie continues, "they told me they like to hear a new song every now and then, but they also like to hear things they already know. So that was kind of the basis of how this idea came to be, and that's how many of the songs were chosen. I hope they bring back wonderful memories for others like they have for me."

The classic songs include Jimmy Dickens' 1963 hit "Another Bridge To Burn" written by Harlan Howard, Bobbie Gentry's 1967 Grammy-winning crossover hit "Ode To Billie Joe", Billie Jo Spears' 1975 No. 1 "Blanket On The Ground" and The Kendalls' Grammy-honored 1977 chart-topping hit "Heaven's Just A Sin Away".

With Tim Atwood and Danny Davis, Jeannie recorded duet versions of "Let It Be Me" and "What's Going On In Your World" for the CD project. Both talented vocalists are also accomplished musicians who perform as part of Jeannie's band on the Opry.

Jeannie explains that "Funny How Time Slips Away" came about when she was asked to perform a tribute to Billy Walker on the Tuesday Night Opry following his death. She dedicates the song on her CD to Billy and his wife Bettie, as well as to Charlie Lily and Danny Patton who also died in the fatal accident that occurred in May of 2006.

In addition to Willie Nelson's "Funny How Time Slips Away", her new CD also includes his song "What A Way To Live", a 1968 hit for Johnny Bush that Jeannie frequent performs on the Opry. "I can never sing enough Willie Nelson songs," she's quick to add.

Jeannie says her husband Gene Ward's favorite cut on the new CD is Mickey Newbury's "Makes Me Wonder If I Ever Said Goodbye", a 1976 hit for Johnny Rodriguez. "Mickey is one of the most incredible songwriters of our time," notes Jeannie. I got to know him very well, and I can still picture him writing those haunting, poignant songs on the back of his houseboat at Anchor High Marina in Hendersonville."

"Darktown Strutters' Ball" is known as a pop, jazz, big band and Dixieland tune, but Jeannie elected to record her own interpretation, and the resulting western-swing version became the CD's opening track. "I don't know of anyone else in country music who's ever tackled that song," notes Eddie Stubbs.

"I've known the song as long as I can remember because my Mother used to sing it when I was growing up in Pennsylvania," recalls Jeannie. "And I remember having all my high school girlfriends over one time and my Mother was singing this song and teaching us to dance the Charleston... so it has wonderful memories, and it just feels good."

On an Opry Country Classics show in April 2011, Grand Ole Opry member Larry Gatlin introduced Jeannie Seely to the audience by saying, "When I first moved to this town - Dottie West brought me here in 1971 - the first person I met here was this beautiful, wonderful, incredibly talented woman. We've been dear friends forever. You can't sing a country song better, you can't write one better, than Miss Jeannie Seely."

Jeannie thanked Larry as she took the stage and proceeded to perform a crowd-pleasing rendition of "Darktown Strutters' Ball" from "Vintage Country".

An American Classic

    Written by Penn Pennington and Mitch Ballard, the album's lead-off track includes Jeannie's Opry sisters Sharon and Cheryl White.
    Songwriters Bobby Tomberlin and Steve Wariner completed this song that had been started by Jeannie's close friend and fellow Opry member Dottie West. Steve Wariner sings with Jeannie on the recording.
    This song was composed by songwriter C.W. "Buddy" Kalb Jr. who appeared in a long string of Ray Stevens' music videos ranging from "The Streak" to "Mississippi Squirrel Revival," a song that Buddy also wrote.
    Songwriters Sammy Cahn and Gene De Paul created this classic song. Five versions charted in 1954 and 1955 by vocalists Janet Brace, Jo Stafford, Dinah Washington, Helen Grayco, and The DeCastro Sisters. Many others including The McGuire Sisters have also recorded this standard which Jeannie has always loved.
    This song was written by Country Music Hall of Fame member and Jeannie's ex-husband Hank Cochran after Jeannie started singing "Can I sleep on your boat tonight mister" while trying to get Hank's attention to board their houseboat one night. Jeannie originally recorded the song in 1973 on MCA Records, and it peaked at No. 6 on Billboard's country singles chart. The song was later recorded by Willie Nelson for his classic album Red Headed Stranger.
    Jeannie wrote this song while driving from her farm in Hendersonville to a matinee performance of the Grand Ole Opry. In the process of concentrating on writing the song in her head, Jeannie missed her exit off of Interstate 65 – and she almost missed her Opry spot. Joining Jeannie on this country shuffle is friend and fellow Opry member Rhonda Vincent (whose 2019 No. 1 bluegrass hit "Like I Could" was co-written by Jeannie).
    This song was co-written by Country Music Hall of Fame members Bill Anderson and Roger Miller. Bill joins Jeannie on her new recording of the classic ballad which was a Top 10 hit by Roger Miller in 1961, a Top 10 hit by Jim Reeves in 1969, and a Top 15 hit by Jerry Lee Lewis in 1980.
    Written by Jeannie's fellow SiriusXM Willie's Roadhouse host Dallas Wayne, this song was recorded by Jeannie as a duet with Willie Nelson who sings and plays his famous guitar "Trigger" on the recording. Previous duets by Willie and Jeannie include "You've Been Leaving Me For Years" for the Epic album All-American Cowboys and a duet of "Old Friends" for Jeannie's album Been There…Sung That.
    This tune was written by Don Cusic, the producer of the album. The song is Celtic-flavored with bagpipes, and it harkens back to the British Isles roots of country music. In addition to being a songwriter and producer, Don Cusic is an author, a music historian, and a Curb Professor of Music Industry History at Belmont University where his former students include Jeannie's fellow Opry members Brad Paisley and Chris Young.
    Written by Pebe Sebert and Hugh Moffatt, this song was a Top 15 hit for Joe Sun in 1978 and a No. 1 single for Dolly Parton in 1980. Jeannie previously recorded the song with Jody Payne, Willie Nelson's longtime guitar player. For this album Jeannie recorded the song with Jody's son Waylon Payne, who is also the son of the late country singer Sammi Smith.
    This song was written by Brent Ronen and Jeannie's longtime keyboard player Tim Atwood. Jeannie recorded the song with fellow Opry members Lorrie Morgan on vocals and Vince Gill on guitar. This rockabilly tune features super-slick piano and a fun, rockin' melody.
    A Hank Cochran composition, Jeannie's original version of this song was recorded on March 12, 1966. Within a few weeks the song debuted on the country music charts where it stayed for over five months. Although it held at No. 2 for three weeks on Billboard, the record went to No. 1 on all the other major charts including Cashbox and Record World. It was also a crossover hit on the national pop charts. Today "Don't Touch Me" is considered a standard in country music. Jeannie's recording of the song is ranked at No. 97 in the book Heartaches By the Number: Country Music's 500 Greatest Singles published by the Vanderbilt University Press and the Country Music Foundation Press. On March 2, 1967, "Don't Touch Me" earned Jeannie the 1966 Grammy Award for "Best Country Vocal Performance by a Female." Country versions of "Don't Touch Me" have been recorded by Country Music Hall of Fame members Don Gibson, Tammy Wynette, George Jones, Ray Price, Eddy Arnold, Barbara Mandrell, Roy Clark, and Dottie West. The popularity of "Don't Touch Me" has crossed all musical styles – an R&B version was recorded by Etta James, a folk version by Carolyn Hester, a soul version by Bettye Swann, a pop version by Eleni Mandell, and a reggae version by Nicky Thomas.
    This song was written by former Beatle Paul McCartney who recorded it for his 2007 album Memory Almost Full. The last song recorded for Paul's album and included at the last minute, "Dance Tonight" was nominated for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance at the 2008 Grammy Awards. Jeannie recorded the song as a duet with Country Music Hall of Fame member Ray Stevens.
