“The response we got last time was so positive, I just knew we had to make this an annual event!! At this time of year we seem to be more aware of those in need in our community and I felt like this was one area being overlooked,” exclaimed Jeannie Seely. “Not only do these wonderful little animals need and deserve attention, so do the wonderful people who care for them! They work so hard and it’s more difficult when you don’t have what you need to work with. It was so rewarding to see their excitement to not only receive the supplies but to know we all appreciate them. We hope you can join us for some Christmas cheer and support this worthy cause!”
“We are honored to have Jeannie Seely on the Midnite Jamboree hosting this incredible benefit for the Old Friends Dog Rescue. Her helping hand has such a far reach it truly is inspirational. With the Jamboree being a platform known for helping artists I feel it is a real fit to host this heartfelt event,” stated Midnite Jamboree’s Ernest Dale Tubb III. “Pets have always been a part of my household and being able to support the less fortunate ones warms my heart.”

About Ernest Tubb Midnite Jamboree:
The Midnite Jamboree was a radio program aired from May 3, 1947 through May 7, 2022 on WSM in Nashville, Tennessee. It was launched by country musician Ernest Tubb. The program was recorded from Ernest Tubb Record Shop in Nashville, Tennessee each Saturday. Through a brokered programming arrangement with Ernest Tubb Record Shop, the Jamboree aired following the Grand Ole Opry; as the program’s name implied, it aired at midnight Central Time. In its later years, the Midnite Jamboree was billed as “the second longest running radio show in history.” On March 11, 2022, the owners of Ernest Tubb Record Shop announced that it would be going out of business in the spring, ending the program. A special broadcast was recorded on the program’s 75th anniversary on May 3, 2022 and broadcast on WSM the following Saturday; that would be the final new episode, as the store closed that week.
About Jeannie Seely: Jeannie Seely’s deep, moving vocals earned her the nickname of “Miss Country Soul,” a title that’s still used today. An esteemed singer, songwriter, producer, actress, author and on-air personality, Seely added another title, “Doctor,” to her resume when she was awarded an honorary Doctorate of Arts from Lincoln Memorial University in 2019. The third female country artist to win a GRAMMY® is also among a select group of country artists who have scored No. 1 hits as a solo artist, duet partner and songwriter. On September 16, 1967, Seely fulfilled her lifelong dream of joining the Grand Ole Opry®, becoming the first Pennsylvania native to do so. 55 years later, Seely makes clear that it’s still a thrill and an honor each time she performs on the world-famous stage. From her 1966 Top 10 Billboard album, The Seely Style, which featured “Don’t Touch Me,” to her self-produced album, Written in Song, consisting entirely of songs she’s written and recorded for more than 10 Country Music Hall of Fame® members, Seely’s recordings have spanned seven decades. Seely first appeared on the Billboard charts in 1966, continued to score entries for 13 consecutive years on various Billboard charts, and as recently as 2022, has had a presence on the MusicRow charts. Seely also garnered a No. 1 on the Record World Country Singles chart in 1971 as well as a No. 1 on the Bluegrass Today chart in 2019. In his 2003 book, Finding Her Voice: The Saga of Women in Country Music, music critic Robert K. Oermann wrote, “With her chin-out, tough/tender, heart-of-gold manner, Jeannie Seely remains one of Country’s most completely modern female personalities,” and that statement still holds true. With a strong social media following and over four million views on her YouTube channel, Seely continues to expand her international presence as music sales and messages from fans worldwide pour in. She appeared in Willie Nelson’s movie Honeysuckle Rose and sang on the film’s RIAA® platinum-certified soundtrack, and for the past four years, Seely has hosted her own show, Sundays with Seely on SiriusXM’s Willie’s Roadhouse. She also served as a disc jockey on her own Armed Forces Network Show, which launched after her tour abroad for the troops. Seely continues to receive letters of appreciation from American soldiers for her support. She is also a fierce advocate for musicians’ rights and takes much pride in her involvement and support for the cause. Nelson, along with Rhonda Vincent, Bill Anderson, Lorrie Morgan, Ray Stevens and many more of her friends, joined Seely for her current project on Curb Records, An American Classic, which has seen rave reviews and three radio releases. Most recently, Seely won the Song of the Year Award at the Arkansas Country Music Awards.
