Earlier this week, I told you all about Studio23Nashville, and of course that Ronnie McDowell was going to be their special guest on the show premiering today. This is great web TV. And, I hope all of you will head over and watch this show with hosts Jennifer Herron and Bryan Cumming, and the special guest on this episode, Ronnie McDowell. Check out the press release below, and head on over to Studio 23 Nashville, by using the link in the release, and get ready to enjoy this fun filled interview/music show.
[Press Release] Entertainer Ronnie McDowell is this week’s spotlight guest on Studio 23 Nashville. Fans can view the episode at www.studio23nashville.com beginning today. McDowell performs and speaks candidly about his life and 40-year career.
The appearance coincides with the upcoming anniversary of Elvis Presley’s birthdate January 8th. The timing is significant since Ronnie McDowell’s first hit was a tribute he wrote and recorded for Elvis, “The King Is Gone.” Elvis has continued to play a big role in McDowell’s successful career with McDowell singing 36 songs on the soundtrack “Elvis,” the Dick Clark-produced television movie that featured Kurt Russell as the performer. He also was the singing voice for the television movie “Elvis And Me”, the ABC television series about the early years of Elvis’ career titled simply “Elvis” as well as, the 1997 Showtime special “Elvis Meets Nixon.” And, most recently, Ronnie McDowell’s artistic talent has created some amazing paintings of Elvis Presley at various life stages and alongside other notable celebrities.
Elvis is only a part of the Ronnie McDowell story though. With over 30 top 40 hits, 13 top ten hits and a couple of number one songs, the charismatic entertainer has quite the legacy. But what fans may not know are the stories behind his role in the U.S. Navy during the Vietnam War or how his close friendship with Conway Twitty influenced a new song. Fans can find out how his artwork led to a deal with Disney and the significance of the number 23, not in relation to Studio 23.
The episode is full of laughs, great music and some chilling revelations of one of the best entertainers around. The show can be viewed for a full week and will remain archived on the site for future viewing.
