About Jeannie Seely Among many accolades including honors from Billboard, Cashbox and Record World, Grammy award winning entertainer Jeannie Seely has achieved chart-topping songs as a solo artist, as a duet partner and as a songwriter. Early in her career, Jeannie’s deeply moving vocals earned her the nickname “Miss Country Soul” – a title that’s still used today. Jeannie’s biggest dream came true when she was inducted as a member of the world-famous Grand Ole Opry, becoming the first Pennsylvania native to do so. Jeannie is celebrating her 50th anniversary as a member of the Grand Ole Opry where she paved the way for females in the music business by becoming the first female to regularly host segments of the weekly Opry shows as well as being the first to wear a mini-skirt onstage. Jeannie takes much pride in her involvement and support of musicians’ rights. From her 1966 Top 10 Billboard album The Seely Style to her recent self-produced Written In Song, consisting entirely of songs she’s written, Jeannie’s recordings have spanned six decades and provided enjoyment to country music fans all around the world. In his 2003 book Finding Her Voice: Women In Country Music, music critic Robert K. Oermann wrote, “With her chin-out, tough/tender, heart-of-gold manner, Jeannie Seely remains one of country’s most completely modern female personalities.” And that still holds true today.
