A SPECIAL DAY FOR A SPECIAL LADY IN COUNTRY MUSIC
(Nashville, TN) Jean Shepard, a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Grand Ole Opry, celebrates her birthday, her anniversary to her husband Benny, and her 56th anniversary as a member of the Grand Ole Opry. Jean is the longest continuous member of the Opry.
I do not know of anyone else that has a date on their yearly calendar where they celebrate so many important dates in their lives.
I just spoke with Jean, and she has asked that I send everyone a thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers for her recovery from a foot ailment which kept her from appearing at the Opry and on personal appearances. She wants everyone to know how much she appreciates all of the prayers which were heard and answered. She is feeling great and read for more personal appearances for this year and 2012.
One of the greatest of all of the female artists in country music and still going as strong as ever.
