The Year you were born Round 7 Theme: The Year 1960 any Genre: Don't look now but I'm singing Rhythm and Blues... and a gender bender to boot.... I getting use to winging it and being out of the country genre for awhile.. but we all know that's my favorite music... "You Talk Too Much" is a 1960 single by Joe Jones. Was written by Fats Domino's brother-in-law, Reginald Hall, Fats actually turned down the song. Joe Jones (12 August 1926, New Orleans, Louisiana – 27 November 2005, Los Angeles, California, not to be confused with guitarist Ivan "Boogaloo Joe" Jones) was an American R&B singer, songwriter and arranger. Jones is also generally credited with discovering The Dixie Cups. As a singer, Jones' greatest hit was the Top Five 1960 R&B hit "You Talk Too Much" that also reached #3 on the pop chart. Joe Jones claimed to have composed many songs, including the song "Iko Iko", which appeared in the opening sequences of the film Rain Man. Although his claims were originally successful, a federal jury and then Court of Appeals ruled that Jones did not write "Iko Iko" and that his claims were fraudulent, and that the true writers were the band he managed, The Dixie Cups. . The Dixie Cups hired music attorney Oren Warshavsky, who had previously won a case demonstrating that Jones fraudulently claimed ownership of another Mardi Gras classic song, "It Ain't My Fault." . Jones also failed in his bid to claim ownership (though not as an author) to yet another Mardi Gras classic song, "Carnival Time.". Jones died from complications from quadruple bypass surgery.
The Year you were born Round 7 Bonus Song.. Harmony Choose any song in the person chosen for you in their already recorded songs.. Well,, It wouldn't matter what I choose I do not do harmony thats why I the better half does it. In fact I have him to thank for the little that I tried.. Hope it's not to bad.. "The Fugitive" by Merle Haggard Merle Ronald Haggard (born April 6, 1937) is an American country music singer, guitarist, instrumentalist, and songwriter. Along with Buck Owens, Haggard and his band The Strangers helped create the Bakersfield Sound, which is characterized by the unique twang of Fender Telecaster guitars, vocal harmonies, and a rough edge not heard on the more polished Nashville Sound recordings of the same era. By the 1970s, Haggard was aligned with the growing outlaw country movement, and has continued to release successful albums through the 1990s and into the 2000s. His songs display unflinching personal honesty about such universal themes as love, loss, patriotism, regret and redemption. In 1997, Merle Haggard was inducted into the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame for his song "Okie from Muskogee". Thanks for my singing partner for laying down this wonderful track..

My Favorite Country Top Female Artist Contest: Round #1 Martina McBride "(I Never Promised You a) Rose Garden" was the title of a song written by Joe South, that is best known as recorded by country singer Lynn Anderson.

Anderson's recording sold over 16 million copies and has since become a country/pop music standard. Martina McBride's version In 2005, Martina McBride included the song on her album of covers, Timeless. This album featured classic Country songs from over the years, including "Rose Garden". McBride decided to release her version as a single. Her version brought McBride all the way to the Country Top 20, and brought her a hit. Most critics and fans predicted it would be a hit for McBride, but it would have been unrealistic for anyone to have expected it to be the monster hit it was for Lynn Anderson, reaching the #1 spot in 16 countries worldwide.

It was also later featured on "Leann Rimes: Greatest Hits". "Holiday in Your Heart" Promotion " On the Side of Angels" was featured in the 1997 TV movie "Holiday in Your Heart", which starred Leann herself. Being in the movie caused the song to gain unexpected success and noticement, which caused some to consider the song as an "unofficial/promotional single". The live performance of the song from the movie has been misinterpreted on YouTube,often circulating around with the label "music video". Musical style "On the Side of Angels" is a Christian/Love song. It is a slow ballad with very strong vocals and a powerful meaning. Margaret LeAnn Rimes, known simply as LeAnn Rimes, (born August 29, 1982) is an American singer-songwriter and actress, best known for her work in country music. She is best known for her rich vocals similar to legendary country music singer Patsy Cline, and her rise to fame at the age of 13, becoming the youngest country music star since Tanya Tucker in 1972.

The album's lead single of the same name (originally intended to be recorded by Patsy Cline in the early 1960s) became a Top 10 hit. With immediate success, Rimes attained widespread national acclaim for her similarities to Cline's vocal style. When Rimes released her sophomore studio effort in 1997, You Light up My Life: Inspirational Songs, Rimes went more towards country pop material, which would set the trend for a string of albums that would be released into the next decade. LeAnn Rimes is the youngest person to win a Grammy, and the first country singer to win the Grammy Award for Best New Artist. Since her debut, Rimes has won many major industry awards, which include two Grammies, three ACMs, one CMA, twelve Billboard Music Awards, and one American Music award. In addition, Rimes has also released ten studio albums and four compilation albums through her record label of 13 years, Asylum-Curb, and placed over 40 singles on American and international charts since 1996.

In the Style of Jo Dee Messina

"Because You Love Me" by Jo-Dee Messina. I simply love this artist As when I first started out back in 1989 I met Jo-Dee when she was just 18yrs old. Jo-Dee and my family had spent many a night on the same night club stage.. Singing at Jams, and social events both outside and in.. (see profile of slide show). Born in Holliston, Massachusetts, Jo Dee was first attracted to country music after hearing the recordings of Alabama and Hank Williams, Jr. As for her love for country music, it grew as fast as her respect for its heroes. Dolly Parton and Loretta Lynn, the strong women of country, that wrote and sang from the heart, and Reba McEntire, the hard-working, blue-collar girl whom Jo Dee related to best. At six, Jo Dee had her first public performance and from there on she was hooked. Thirteen brought a band that she had formed and more experience performing throughout clubs in the Northeast. Where I was born and raised and joined her many a time a various night clubs and Jamborees with my Son (Mattik1783) and the better half (theunknownsinger1986) Jo Dee did what she had to, to perform - booking and marketing her own shows, lugging gear and keeping the books. "Boy I remember those days"! At 19, she made the difficult decision to move to Nashville. She didn’t know a soul, had no grand plan, but what she did know, was that she wanted to sing. It was there that Jo Dee would lay down roots and chase her dream. Messina was born Jo Dee Marie Messina on August 25, 1970, in Framingham, Massachusetts. She was raised in Holliston, Massachusetts, by Vincent and Mary Messina, and had two sisters, Terese and Marianne, as well as a brother named Vincent. Messina had a variety of Country music influences, which included Patsy Cline, Reba McEntire, and The Judds. She soon started performing live, and by age 16 she was playing local clubs with a rhythm section made up of her brother and sister. The family band played up until Messina was in her late teens. Realizing that living in the Northeast would limit her chances of achieving Country music stardom, Messina moved to Nashville at age 19.To support herself, Messina worked various temp jobs, including computer programming and accounting. In her spare time, she entered talent contests around Nashville. One win led to a regular gig on the radio show Live at Libby's, which in turn caught the interest of producer Byron Gallimore, who helped her assemble a demo tape. Gallimore was also working with the young Tim McGraw around the same time, and Messina befriended him. Backstage at one of his concerts, Messina met an executive from his label, Curb, and jokingly suggested that they needed a redhead. With the help of fellow Curb producer James Stroud, Messina was then signed to the record label. Gallimore and McGraw would later become co-producers of Messina's studio albums under Curb. In 1996, she released her self-titled debut, produced by Byron Gallimore and Tim McGraw. The album gave Messina two Top 10 hits and set the stage for her breakthrough, I’m Alright. Released in 1998, the first three single releases from the album all went to #1 - “Bye Bye,” “I’m Alright,” and “Stand Beside Me,” as well as a fourth single, “Lesson In Leavin’,” which peaked and stayed at #2 for seven consecutive weeks. In 1998, Messina released her sophomore album, I'm Alright. The album spawned three #1 hit singles on the Billboard Country Chart in 1998, beginning with "Bye, Bye" ,then followed by the title track and then with "Stand Beside Me," all three of which charted on the Billboard Hot 100 as well. The fourth single, "Lesson in Leavin", was a cover of the #1 Country hit by Dottie West in 1980. The song peaked at #2 for 7 weeks (behind Lonestar's huge #1 hit "Amazed)." In 1999, she had another Top 10 hit from the album titled "Because You Love Me," which peaked at #8 on the Billboard Country Chart. The following year, she won the Country Music Association's "Horizon award," which is awarded to new Country music artists. She also won Billboard magazine's "Most Played Female at Country Radio" and also won three major awards from the Boston Music Awards, located in her home state of Massachusetts. Messina's album also became her biggest-selling album to date, selling an excess of two million copies in the United States, receiving a certification of 2× Platinum by the RIAA. Around the same time, Messina had guest roles on the television shows, Crash and Burn, Nash Bridges and Touched by an Angel. She guest-starred on the series a couple of years earlier and stayed in touch with the show's producer/creator. In the episode titled "Bring On the Rain" (named after Messina's hit song), she appeared as Annie, the single mother of a teenage girl. In 1999, Jo Dee released Burn, her first #1 album. The multi-platinum effort, contributed two more #1’s to Jo Dee’s collection, the huge crossover hit “Bring On The Rain” I also sang this one...<a href="http://www.singsnap.com/snap/r/bbe93172"><font color="darkgreen">"click here to listen "<a/><font color="dimgrey"> and “That’s The Way,” as well as two other Top 10’s – “Burn” and “Downtime.” Messina went on to release her favorite Christmas songs on A Joyful Noise, released in 2002, and later a Greatest Hits collection that debuted at #1 on the charts, her second #1 album. Jo-Dee has many more years of success .. To long to list here..As of the present she had their first child, son Noah Roger Deffenbaugh, on January 19, 2009, in Nashville. She is currently on tour in Florida.. Oh Yeh! Think I might get the better half to take me to her up coming gig..
