GRAMMY® award-winning country music legend Jeannie Seely, who is known

first album since 2011’s Vintage Country. WRITTEN IN SONG, which includes 14 tracks all co-written or self-penned by Seely, hits retailers January 13. Click HERE to pre-order WRITTEN IN SONG.
WRITTEN IN SONG, distributed by Smith Music Group, includes
14 songs recorded by country legends like Merle Haggard (“Life of a
Rodeo Cowboy), Dottie West (“He’s All I Need”), Ernest Tubb (“Sometimes I
Do”), Ray Price (“Enough to Lie”) and more.
Seely brings back the traditional country sound that fans have been
longing for. Standout tracks include “Leavin’ & Sayin’ Goodbye”
featuring special guests Kenny and Tess Sears, “Senses” with guest
Connie Smith and Marty Stuart and “We’re Still Hangin’ In There Ain’t We
Jessi” with Jan Howard and Jessi Colter.
“WRITTEN IN SONG is such an exciting project for me for many
reasons,” states Seely. “It consists of 14 songs that I have written
over the years, most of them recorded by my peers and my heroes. It’s
also very rewarding to know that these songs have stood the test of time
and are just as viable today. I am extremely grateful to the musicians
and singers who made them sound brand new.”
Along with dozens of accolades, including awards from Billboard,
Cashbox and Record World, Seely has achieved No. 1 songs as a solo
artist, as a duet partner and as a songwriter.
“Miss Country Soul” Jeannie Seely is a GRAMMY® award-winning artist
who has been recording and performing for more than six decades. A
Pennsylvania native, Seely moved to LA where she met many songwriters
including Dottie West who ultimately encouraged her to move to
Nashville. Within a month, Porter Wagoner hired her as the female singer
for his road and television series. On September 16, 1967, Seely’s
biggest dream came true when she became the first Pennsylvania native to
become a member of the world famous Grand Ole Opry. Seely subsequently
became the first female to regularly host segments of the weekly Opry
shows. She’s also credited for changing the image of female country
performers by being the first to wear a mini-skirt on the Opry stage. On
March 2, 1967, the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences
honored Jeannie with the 1966 GRAMMY® Award for the “Best Country Vocal
Performance by a Female.”
A BMI-awarded songwriter, Seely’s songs have been recorded by Country
Music Hall of Fame members Faron Young, Merle Haggard, Connie Smith,
Ray Price, Willie Nelson, Ernest Tubb and Little Jimmy Dickens, as well
as by many other artists including Doyle Lawson, Lorrie Morgan and Irma
Thomas. Along with placing records on the Billboard country singles
chart for 13 consecutive years, Seely also served as a radio disc jockey
on her own Armed Forces Network Show.
