— Raised on a farm in Indiana, Janie Fricke began singing in church,
and later turned that talent into a career which began as one of the
marketing industry’s most successful jingle singers.
Long before her success as a country artist, millions of people became
familiar with Fricke’s voice through ads for United Airlines, Coca-Cola,
7-Up, and Red Lobster. She soon became a session singer where she was
singing background in the studio with some of the biggest country stars
of the late 70’s and early 80’s, including Loretta Lynn, Eddie Rabbitt,
Crystal Gayle, Ronnie Milsap, Barbara Mandrell, and Mel Tillis.

After a string of duets with such greats as Merle Haggard and Moe Bandy,
Fricke landed a solo recording contract in the early 80’s and scored
several hit singles, including “Don’t Worry ‘Bout Me Baby,” “He’s a
Heartache” and “You’re Heart’s Not In It.” She won CMA’s coveted “Female
Vocalist of the Year” in 1983 and ’84 and has been nominated for three
Grammy Awards. She has been credited with over 1,600 album projects and
scored 36 hit singles.

“I am so fortunate and honored that my music has meant so much to so
many people throughout the years as I have worked with some great
producers and songwriters.,” says Janie Fricke. “Now, as I get to go out
and sing all those hit songs for the fans at concerts, it really brings
back memories from when I made those records and I am just glad that
the fans continue to come out to the shows to hear them.”
