Songwriter Session: Jeannie Seely with special guest Tim Atwood
Feb 23, 2019
“Miss Country Soul,” as Jeannie Seely is sometimes known, wrote the R&B classic “Anyone Who Knows What Love Is (Will Understand),” a hit for Irma Thomas in 1964. A prolific songwriter, Seely recently released an album of original compositions, Written in Song. Titles include “Enough to Lie,” recorded originally by Ray Price; “My Love for You” originally recorded by Merle Haggard; and “Senses” originally recorded by Willie Nelson. She scored a crossover hit herself with her Grammy-winning performance of the Hank Cochran song “Don’t Touch Me.” Seely has been a member of the Grand Ole Opry cast since 1967, and she is an on-air personality for SiriusXM’s Willie’s Roadhouse channel. She will be accompanied by award-winning pianist Tim Atwood. Presented by SunTrust. Ford Theater. The program will be streamed live at www.countrymusichalloffame.org/streaming.
