Nashville - On March 27, country music living legend Jan Howard has celebrated her 45-year anniversary as a member of the Grand Ole Opry.
Howard became a member of the Opry family on March 27, 1971, though she has been performing on the hallowed stage since 1960. This milestone comes two weeks after she celebrated her birthday. Howard is the oldest female member of the Grand Ole Opry, though she believes that age is only a number.
She has been affectionately dubbed as the "Classiest Lady in Country Music." She collaborated with country star Bill Anderson on multiple occasions, and their duet "For Loving You" stayed at No. 1 for four weeks on the Billboard Hot Country Singles charts back in 1968.
In 1960, Billboard Magazine named Howard as its "Most Promising Female Country Artist"; moreover, she went on to receive three Country Music Association (CMA) nominations for "Vocal Duo of the Year" with Bill Anderson in 1968, 1970 and 1971.
