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