Contributor’s Note:  On September 16th, 1967, country music legend Jeannie Seely began her long and brilliant career as a star of the Grand Ole Opry.  Referred to as “Miss Country Soul”, Jeannie became the first Pennsylvania native to become a member of the Grand Ole Opry.   Jeannie also became well-known for her songwriting for Four Star Music and became a regular act with an unknown(at the time) Glen Campbell on Hollywood Jamboree.  Jeannie broke out and crossed over with the smash hit “Anyone Who Knows What Love Is”, and that song crossed over on the pop and r&b charts.  Her hit, the Hank Cochran ballad “Don’t Touch Me”, is ranked at No. 97 in the influential country music book “Heartaches By The Number:  Country Music’s 500 Greatest Singles” written by David Cantwell and Bill Friskics-Warren.  On the 123rd episode of The Don’s Hit List with The Don & The Grizz, Jeannie Seely discusses her latest release “An American Classic”, which includes collaborations with Willie Nelson, Lorrie Morgan, Vince Gill and a host of other artists.  Jeannie also reflects on her friendship with Charlie Daniels and her “controversial” song “Can I Sleep In Your Arms Tonight, Mister”.  Fans can find Jeannie Seely at the following locations:
