Nashville - Grammy-winning country star Jeannie Seely will be the first performer on the Grand Ole Opry stage on Jan. 1 at the historic Ryman Auditorium.
Seely, who is affectionately known as "Miss Country Soul," will also be appearingin in Country's Family Reunion Road Show with Country Music Hall of Famer Bill Anderson, as well as such veteran country artists as Mickey Gilley, Johnny Lee, Jimmy Fortune, David Frizzell and T.G. Sheppard.
The acclaimed songstress recently served as a guest host for the variety show, Larry's Country Diner. In 2014, Seely made Digital Journal's list of "Top 5 Overdue Female Artists for Country Music Hall of Fame induction."
Most impressive about Seely is this upcoming June will mark her 50th year anniversary since her first guest performance on the hallowed Grand Ole Opry. That took place at a time when her debut hit, "Don't Touch Me," was making its way up the country charts.
One year later, on Sept. 16, 1967, Seely became a member of the Grand Ole Opry family, and she would subsequently win the 1966 Grammy award for "Best Female Country Vocal Performance" for "Don't Touch Me."
