John Conlee 07012015Country legend John Conlee (Mr. Rose Colored Glasses), a regular performer at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville will be performing  on Saturday, July 25 at Cocke County High School, Newport, TN.

During John Conlee’s 35 year career in Country Music, he has brought to audiences such classic songs as: “Rose Colored Glasses” (John’s signature song), “Friday Night Blues”, “Backside of 30”, “Common Man”, “Miss Emily’s Picture”, “I Don’t Remember Lovin’ You”, and more.

Conlee’s fans are excited that he has returned to radio with a new single “Walkin’ Behind The Star”, released on his own RCR (Rose Colored Records) Label. This song was written by Nashville recording veterans Ronnie Scaife and Pil Thomas and the lyrics were inspired by Phil’s grandfather and great-grandfather both of whom served in their local sheriff’s department. The song had yet to be cut until recent events made the it timely,  the song was pitched to the Grand Ole Opry star, who was touched by the song’s honesty.  “Recent deadly attacks against the people who keep us safe is unprecedented in America and I wanted to sing this song in honor of their sacrifice and willingness to serve,” Conlee said. The new CD will feature new material along with many of Conlee’s latter classics.

Conlee recently celebrated the 36th anniversary of his breakthrough hit “Rose Colored Glasses,” and can be found on tour throughout 2015 as well as on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry, where he has been a member since 1981.
