Janie Fricke Continues to Captivate Audiences with Electrifying Performances

Mar 2 | Posted by: Third Coast Talent

Raised on a farm in Indiana, Janie Fricke began singing in church, and later turned that talent into a career which began as one of the marketing industry's most successful jingle singers. Long before her success as a country artist, millions of people became familiar with Fricke's voice through ads for United Airlines, Coca-Cola, 7-Up and Red Lobster. She soon became a session singer where she was singing background in the studio with some of the biggest country stars including Loretta Lynn, Ronnie Milsap, Barbara Mandrell and Mel Tillis. 

After a string of duets with such greats as Merle Haggard and Moe Bandy, Janie landed a solo recording contract in the early 80's and scored many hit singles including "Don't Worry "Bout Me Baby," "He's A Heartache," "She's Single Again", and "It Ain't Easy Being Easy".  She won CMA's coveted "Female Vocalist of the Year" in 1983 and '84 and has been nominated for three Grammy Awards.  She was the First Female Voice on the Moon and has been credited with over 1600 album projects and scored 36 Hit Singles, including 18 #1 singles.

Sony Music recently made four of Fricke's classic albums available to fans on Spotify, Apple Music and other digital platforms - a rarity for some classic acts.  The First Word in Memory, The Very Best of Janie Fricke, Black & White and Saddle in the Wind can now be found digitally!

"I am so fortunate and honored that my music has meant so much to so many people throughout the years as I have worked with some great producers and songwriters", says Janie Fricke. "Now, as I get to go out and sing all those hit songs for the fans at concerts, it really brings back memories from when I made those records and I am just glad that the fans continue to come out to the shows to hear them."   For more information on Janie Fricke, go to www.janiefricke.com
