JOHN CONLEE SET TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM CLASSICS 2 ON APRIL 7

John Conlee - Classics 2

New Single “Walkin’ Behind The Star” pays tribute to those keeping America safe
 

NASHVILLE,
Tenn. (March 10, 2015) – Fans of one of Country Music’s most
distinctive song stylists have new reason to exclaim with delight as
veteran performer John Conlee returns to the radio with the emotional
single “Walkin’ Behind The Star,” released on his own RCR (Rose Colored
Records) label.

The song was written by Nashville industry veterans Ronnie Scaife and
Phil Thomas, who collaborated on the Johnny Paycheck hits “Colorado
Cool Aid” and “Me and the IRS” together. The touching lyrics were
inspired by Phil’s grandfather and great-grandfather, both of whom
served in their local sheriff’s department. The song had yet to be cut
until recent events made the song a little timelier, and the song was
pitched to the Grand Ole Opry star, who was touched by the song’s
honesty.

“Recent deadly attacks against the people who keep us safe is
unprecedented in America and I wanted to sing this song in honor of
their sacrifice and willingness to serve,” says Conlee.

“Walkin’ Behind The Star,“ can be found on his upcoming release Classics 2,
which will feature some new material along with many of Conlee’s latter
classics. The set features Conlee hits such as “Harmony,” “Mama’s
Rockin’ Chair” and “Hit The Ground Runnin,” which are being issued on CD
for the first time since their releases on Columbia and 16th Avenue
Records.

Conlee recently celebrated the 36th anniversary of his breakthrough
hit “Rose Colored Glasses,” and can be found on the road throughout 2015
as well as the stage of the Grand Ole Opry, where he has been a member
since 1981.
