Jeannie Seely

An American country singer,composer.

Seely is an American Country Music Singer and Grand Ole Opry star, who is best-known for her 1966 Grammy award-winning Country hit, "Don't Touch Me", which went to No. 1 on three Country charts.

She was one of Country music's most successfull and most influential female vocalists of the 60s.

She was born in Titusville, Pennsylvania in 1940. This was the town where the world's first oil well was drilled in 1859. She was the youngest of four children.

Seely got a recording contract of her own from Challenge Records. Songwriter, Hank Cochran was impressed with Seely's talents and though she should move to Nashville to peruse a career in Country Music, but Seely didn't think she was ready yet.

One of the first songs recorded then was her husband's self-penned, "Don't Touch Me". The song was then released and turned Seely into a major Country star, spending over five months on the Country charts.

Seely still remains a member of the Grand Ole Opry and lives close by the Opry.
