Jeannie Seely Recognized at Grand Ole Opry for Billboard Top TV Songs Chart Placement

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (May 8, 2018) – 50 year Grand Ole Opry veteran Jeannie Seely
is a Grammy winner, country hitmaker and award-winning songwriter.
During her hosting segment on the Grand Ole Opry Friday night, she was
presented with an award recognizing her song “Anyone Who Knows What Love
Is (Will Understand)” for reaching No. 2 on the Billboard Top TV Songs Chart in January of this year.

Written in 1964 by Seely with Judith Arbuckle, Pat Sheeran and Randy
Newman and originally a pop and R&B hit for Irma Thomas, the song
has seen much renewed popularity. It has been used in several TV shows
including “Big Little Lies,” “Orphan Black,” “NFL GameDay Morning,”
“Here And Now” (on HBO),  and multiple episodes of “Black Mirror,” it
has been used in movie trailers for “Moonlight” and “Jurassic World:
Fallen Kingdom,” and it has been recorded by artists like Seal, Boyz II
Men, Jessica Brown-Findlay, Samantha Whates – and Jeannie Seely herself
(for her latest CD Written In Song).

“It is absolutely amazing to me the way this song just keeps showing up
in different genres and uses. One of the reasons, I believe, is the
haunting melody, and the other is the vulnerability of the lyrics,” said
Jeannie Seely. “Whatever the reason, I’m sure glad that it does, and
I’m very grateful to all who have recorded it.”
