CMA Fest – Jeannie Seely

Splice caught up with Jeannie Seely at CMA Fest in NashvilleTennessee. Check out what she had to say

Nashville, Tennessee (May 8, 2018) 50 year Grand Ole Opry veteran Jeannie Seely is a Grammy winner, country hitmaker, and award-winning songwriter. During her hosting segment on the Grand Ole Opry Friday night, she was presented with an award recognizing her song “Anyone Who Knows What Love Is (Will Understand)” for reaching No. 2 on the Billboard Top TV Songs Chart in January of this year.

Written in 1964 by Seely with Judith Arbuckle, Pat Sheeran and Randy Newman and originally a pop and R&B hit for Irma Thomas, the song has seen much-renewed popularity. It has been used in several TV shows including “Big Little Lies,” “Orphan Black,” “NFL GameDay Morning,” “Here And Now” (on HBO),  and multiple episodes of “Black Mirror,” it has been used in movie trailers for “Moonlight” and “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom,” and it has been recorded by artists like Seal, Boyz II Men, Jessica Brown-Findlay, Samantha Whates – and Jeannie Seely herself (for her latest CD Written In Song).

“It is absolutely amazing to me the way this song just keeps showing up in different genres and uses. One of the reasons, I believe, is the haunting melody, and the other is the vulnerability of the lyrics,” said Jeannie Seely. “Whatever the reason, I’m sure glad that it does, and I’m very grateful to all who have recorded it.”

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.
