Living country legend Jan Howard celebrates her birthday today, March 13. She is a veteran member of the Grand Ole Opry for the past 45 years.
Dubbed as the "Classiest Lady in Country Music," Howard is a veterans' advocate, published author, solo artist, demo singer, background vocalist, duet partner, songwriter and multifaceted entertainer.
She has been performing at the hallowed Grand Ole Opry stage for well over 55 years. She is the oldest female member of the Grand Ole Opry, though she may be the "youngest-spirited" female artist there. For Howard, "age is just a number," and rightfully so.
Her career started as a demo singer, where she was the first singer to record such classics as "I Fall to Pieces," "Heartaches by the Number" and "She's Got You," among many others. She has been nominated for two Grammy awards for "Evil On Your Mind" and "My Son."
A distinguished songwriter in her own right, her songs have been recorded by such country legends as Tammy Wynette, Conway Twitty, Kitty Wells and Johnny Cash.
A few years ago, Digital Journal selected Jan Howard as one of its five overdue female artists for induction into the prestigious Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.
