ANNOUNCEMENTS

Janet Receives
Rural Roots Archive
CD Award for 2014!


Please click to see a larger version.

From Janet on September 8 in response to the webmaster's questions concerning the award: [This is the] first photo to show from Le Mars Traditional Country Music Association Archives CD [Award] of the Year 2014. It is for the HERE I AM CD. It was taken by Walt Pogue.

[It was awarded to me because it contains] all re-issues of the 1980's and 1990's, and the fact that it is ALL OLD TIME COUNTRY MUSIC FROM THAT ERA - and they liked it.

They missed 'any yodeling' but all of the older cuts of yodeling were re-mastered and put onto the 50 Years CD - so none of that, or same with the old Gospel cuts.

The only reason Who Is This Jesus Person got on this CD is that cut of that song was never on anything but a cassette so it got on there.

Beautiful Award for sure.

Wyoming Rose was there "just because" I wanted to give it another shot.

Everything was old but that one and the Bluebonnet song. It was truly a "bucket list" Item. It began the journey when Phil York completed the project and it was so Good. When I asked Mary to help with the art work, etc, we were on our way.

I will have other photos ASAP. It was a fun time.

 

Janet's Visit To
"John's Place"

In correspondence on September 16, Janet mentioned her early week activities, and included a few words about her trip to "John's Place." They were so moving that this webmaster just had to include them on our "Notes From Janet" page, which you can see by clicking here.

A former Buckaroo, and mentee of both Janet and Devon Dawson (though mostly Miss Dawson, according to Janet), Ginny Mac is on the rise in her career. She appeared on CMT's "A Cowboy Country Christmas," which was broadcast in 2003 and hosted by Clint Black. Janet's number "Santa's Yodeling Song" was featured in that show.

On September 3rd, 2014, AccordianAmerica.com did a very nice write-up on Ginny. You can see it by going to this link. Congratulations Ginny Mac for all your success!

Hayloft Gang Program
Aired on PBS - KERA
In the Dallas Area!


Please click to see a larger version.

Janet sent the following Email on August 23 regarding this program:

SET YOUR DVRS TO WATCH THIS GREAT DOCUMENTARY.

For everyone who isn't old enough to remember how great [were] the early days of 'COWBOY, COUNTRY AND WESTERN SWING AND WHERE IT BEGAN' BE SURE TO WATCH THIS PBS SHOW.

I DID HELP THEM WITH FINDING SOME GREAT OLD STARS AND FURNISHED THEM WITH SOME NEVER SEEN CLIPS OF PATSY MONTANA. YEP, AT THE END THEY PUT JOHN'S AND MY NAME

Also remember that Mikki won the world wide contest and got her BEAUTIFUL MARTIN GUITAR FOR WINNING THE WHOLE THING.

Don't miss it. Janet

Added Janet on August 26:

THIS PROGRAM IS LISTED AS 'THE HAYLOFT GANG' AND IS ALL ABOUT A GREAT EARLY SHOW OF OUR TYPE OF MUSIC.

STARS WHO STARTED THERE WERE GENE AUTRY, PAT BUTTRAM, PATSY MONTANA, GEORGE GOBEL, LULA BELLE AND SCOTTY, THE PRAIRIE RAMBLERS, ETC. THEY WERE ALL THERE FROM THE 1930'S.

Here is the message from Mr. Steve Parry sent earlier:

Hi Janet,

I hope all is well for you. I just wanted to let you know that The Hayloft Gang documentary is going to air on KERA (Dallas PBS) on Thursday, August 28th at 10:00 PM.

Please help us to spread the word to folks down in your part of Texas that might be interested in this program

Also the DVD with Extra content is now available from our website (www.hayloftgang.com).

So happy to see that Mikki Daniel's career is doing so well. We like to think that our Hayloft Gang Video Contest played some small part in her success, and of course, the Martin she won.

I know that your mentoring has been very instrumental to her career.

Take care,
Stephen Parry
Producer: The Hayloft Gang

The above photograph of Mikki is of her NEW HORIZONS WRANGLER AWARD, won April 12th, 2014, and is on her website.

 

Happy Birthday
LeAnn Rimes!

August 28, 2014 is LeAnn's thirty-second birthday! The photo above is from her "Blue" video, and was used in VH1's Twitter feed to advertise "The LeAnn and Eddie Show" on that network.

LeAnn will sing her song "Give" on Sunday, August 31, 9/8c PM on the MDA Telethon. Here is a link to an article which gives some details.

Congratulations LeAnn, and have the most wonderful of birthdays!

 

CHANGES IN
CONTACTING JANET

This webmaster is sorry, but, as explained in our ordering sections on this page and the Orders page, the forms we used to use to contact Janet were generating from 50-75 spam Emails a day. Each one had to be examined closely in case it came from you, one of Janet's fans.

We have therefore removed the forms, but left the Emails with which to contact Janet or Pat Boileson, Fan Club President. We've also included product price information on Janet's new CD, "Here I Am."

 

Two Songs from
Janet's New CD
"Here I Am!"

Picking sample songs from Janet's new CD was a difficult task, as there were so many favorites. Chosen were two that were not already on this website. You can click the little speaker icons to listen.


Who Is this Jesus Person?


Like You Did

Note from the webmaster on "hurtin' songs:" on the inside of Janet's CD, Tex and Mary Schutz refer, with great reverence, to Janet's "crying-hurting" songs. After years of theological studies, this webmaster would like to point out that these songs suggest a Standard of Right-ness.

In each one that Janet wrote, there is the teaching that a happy relationship, with loyalty and dedication, are the Right way to enjoy Romance. Congratulations to Janet for finally meeting her John Ingram--who fulfilled, for her, that teaching.

We will forego placing these on our Audio Page until after the webmaster has upgraded his computer system.

 

Latest News From Janet!

On August 12, Janet sent in several photos from her weekend at the Burtons Bend Music Festival. You can see larger versions of the ones above by simply clicking on them. Below are her words in explanation:

[Here are some] photos from this weekend. The first set has a good photo of a 'fan' [Elna Banzhaf] and [the second] set has Alexa and I on stage.

Got home yesterday about 2 pm and now trying to gather stuff, put up stuff, catch up on emails, gather in a new 'hopefully' Buckaroo and just some rest also. I'm OK. Me

Below is the message Mrs. Banzhaf wrote when she sent in the pictures.

HERE ARE SOME PHOTOS THAT I TOOK YESTERDAY. THE COLOR ISN'T VERY GOOD ON SOME OF THEM DUE TO THE COLORED STAGE LIGHTING BUT ENJOY THEM ANYWAY. I CAN'T THANK YOU ENOUGH FOR SUGGESTING THAT THE TWO OF US HAVE OUR PICTURE TAKEN TOGETHER. IT MEANS THE WORLD TO ME.

THANKS A MILLION FOR THE CD THAT YOU GAVE ME. I HAVEN'T SEEN EITHER OF THEM YET BUT WILL SOON. I'M VERY TIRED TODAY, PICKED UP MY PHOTOS FROM THE FAIR AT NOON AND ATTENDED THE 4-Y STYLE SHOW AT 1:00. I'M READY TO CALL IT A DAY.

I CAN'T IMAGINE HOW EXHAUSTED YOU MUST BE AFTER THE LONG DRIVE TO HOLBROOK, PERFORMING TWO DAYS, ETC. DO KEEP IN TOUCH.

LOVE, YOUR FRIEND, ELNA BANZHAF (BONSHAW)

Janet's Friends at the
2014 CMT Video Awards!

On Wednesday, June 4, 2014, CMT broadcast their annual Video Awards show, and four entertainers attended who have connections to our Janet!

Kacey Musgraves and Lee Ann Womack sang a duet to honor Alan Jackson, and you can see two photos of them above. Amber Carrington was in the audience with her date, Dran Michael of Dran Michael Productions.

The following day, LeAnn Rimes cut the ribbon for the opening ceremonies of CMA Fest, 2014. She tweeted: Thx country fans @CMAFestVIP for the best time I've ever had at CMA Fest. Loved seeing you all. Thanks for all your love and support.

That same day, Kacey tweeted: Wake up. Eat food. Play show with @AlisonKrauss and @willienelson. WHAT IS LIFE?!

As most people know, Janet either mentored or helped in some way LeAnn Rimes, Lee Ann Womack, and Kacey Musgraves. Amber Carrington appeared as a star at the Rodeo City Music Hall, which often featured Janet and was held at the same building as was once her Mesquite Opry. Congratulations to all involved in these beautiful careers.

In Memoriam
John Ingram


Please click to see a larger version.

On December 22, 2010, Janet's husband John Ingram went home to be with the Lord. Just a few days before that, he was with Janet and their granddaughter when this photo was taken. Here are Janet's words:

We all commented that night at how great John looked and how he was able to climb the stairs at the restaurant and how happy he was.

I had not seen this photo until last week. I did not take the camera that night but this photo was taken by Devri McBride. It was her Birthday dinner at a restaurant in Dallas.

How cool is that photo?

You can see all of our tribute information regarding John by clicking either here or on the menu button to the upper left entitled "John." Thank you, Devri, for sharing that picture!
