Jeannie C. Riley was born Jeanne Carolyn Stephenson in 1945 in Stamford, Texas. Her childhood was lonely but competitive, and focused on singing – at first into her hairbrush, then on the local Jones County Jamboree. She moved to Nashville in 1966 with her husband and a six month old daughter, Kim. She was turned down by Monument and Capitol and messed around by undelivered promises from other labels. Her 1981 autobiography called out the casting couch processes in Nashville years before “Me Too” came along. Johnny Cash wrote the introduction: “She was a diamond in the rough... Her story is a textbook example of what many girls have come through in order to ‘make it’ in the Nashville music community.” In 1968 she was heard by producer Shelby Singleton. His vision saw how her voice and personality could bring alive a story song by Tom T. Hall about a woman calling out the various small town hypocrites who were criticising her. He saw Harper Valley P.T.A. as a hit single, an album, a movie and a TV series - all of which came to pass. When Jeannie recorded Harper Valley, she said: ”There wasn’t a sound as the last echoes of the guitars faded. Then I heard one of the musicians say, ‘Great God A’mighty’.” Everyone in the room was now hearing what Shelby had envisioned. Legend has it that half the music people in Nashville came in to hear the playbacks. Within a month, her song was number one on the national Hot 100 chart, and number one country, and she was on TV for American Bandstand and the Bing Crosby Show. Soon she was awarded the CMA Song Of The Year and nominated as the Best Female Performer at the Grammies. She was earning 30 grand in Vegas and had her picture made with Elvis Presley. HE came to see HER. From 1969 onwards she formed a band and had a tour bus. She said, “I was virtually living on my bus,” as husband Mickey Riley drove her entourage down the honky tonk highway. Even though the highway took her first to the top of the pop charts, to national and international TV, and to Vegas, she was still as country as they come. She said, “I took every engagement that came along – state fairs, concerts, night clubs, dinner clubs, and joints.”
