COUNTRY MUSIC LEGEND JEANNIE SEELY SET TO BE FIRST PERFORMER ON GRAND OLE OPRY IN 2016



NASHVILLE, Tenn. (January 1, 2016) – Grammy-award winning and country music legend Jeannie Seely will be the first performer on the Grand Ole Opry from 7:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. CST when the world-famous radio show returns to the Ryman Auditorium tonight.
 
The distinctive-voiced lady, referred to as "Miss Country Soul," has a full slate of appearances and live performances in 2016, including Country's Family Reunion Road Show with Bill Anderson and dates with Mickey Gilley, Johnny Lee, Jimmy Fortune, David Frizzell and T.G. Sheppard.
 
Seely also recently guest hosted and performed on RFD-TV’s top-rated variety show “Larry’s Country Diner.”
 
June 2016 marks the 50th anniversary of Seely's first guest performance on the Grand Ole Opry. At that time her first hit, "Don't Touch Me" (recorded on March 12, 1966), was climbing the country music charts. The following year on September 16, 1967, Seely became an official member of the Grand Ole Opry. Later that year, she would win the 1966 Grammy Award for "Best Country Vocal Performance by a Female" for “Don’t Touch Me.”
 
Seely continues to regularly host and perform on the hallowed stage. “My home continues to be the Grand Ole Opry, and that’s where my heart is,” Seely said, a quote permanently inscribed into the backstage of the Grand Ole Opry House.
 
"I feel very fortunate to be part of the Opry tradition and I truly am indebted to all the wonderful fans that have supported me over the years. If I’m in town and they invite me in - I’ll be there,” Seely said.
 
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. Her deeply moving vocals earned her the nickname of "Miss Country Soul."
