Brook Wallace Credits
Janet in Magazine Article!

On March 25 of this year, Brook Wallace announced an article written four weeks previously in the Cleburne Times-Review by Matt Smith. The title is "Musical chameleon," and in it Brook credits our Janet, Devon Dawson, and the Buckaroos.

Here is a snippet from that article: Wallace credits Devon Dawson and Janet McBride with helping her perfect her craft and stage presence. Wallace, from the age of 8 or so, participated in Fort Worth’s Cowtown Opry’s Buckaroo Club, a program aimed at mentoring youth in the Texas heritage music derived from cattle ranching culture.

You can read the entire article by clicking here. Congratulations, Brook, on this well-deserved publicity, and thank you for mentioning our Janet!

Fan Club News!

Pat Boileson recently mailed out the **Spring 2015** Fan Club Newsletter. This newsletter honors Ms. Darline Zipf, a friend of Janet's, Pat's, and Patsy Montana's. Ms. Zipf passed away Feburary 18th. To remember her best, the newsletter reprints the article originally published December of 2010, and written about Darlene by our Janet.

Also, Janet wrote, especially for this and the next newsletter, her answer to the question: "when did I decide I could be a mentor?" It is a two-part series, with the second installment in the next edition.

Plus, Pat features a photo of Janet in the ACM's "This Is Country" book and, beside it, Janet's 1963 award. In addition, for Fan Club members there is special pricing on some of Janet's music during April of 2015.

Thank you, as always, Ms. Pat for your hard work regarding Janet, and congratulations on your own musical success!


Janet Remembers Jimmy Dickens

Please click to see a larger version.

Sadly, we lost the artist known as "Little Jimmy Dickens" on January 2, 2015--just days after his final appearance at the Grand Ole Opry. On January 5, Janet sent me these words of tribute:

I was a fan of Little Jimmy Dickens from the first time I heard his recordings on any radio station. He sang every song like he had lived it and most of the time he had.

Take An Old Cold Tater And Wait, Out Behind The Barn, Little But I'm Loud, Raggedy Ann, There's No Place Like Home On Christmas were never sung better than Little Jim.


I treasured the times that I was able to actually meet up and talk with him. It seems to me he was always there. Now I know there will never be another like LITTLE JIMMY DICKENS.


From the Webmaster...

The last update to this website took place mid-September, 2014. After a couple of weeks of illness, this webmaster was admitted to the hospital for emergency care to remove stones from his duodenum. They had gathered and begun to press against his liver.

Janet was quite kind in keeping our web relationship going without pressing for site additions. Things are gradually healing, for which I am grateful.

We have updated just now the Home, Calendar, and From Janet pages. The previous notes are placed on the Notes for 2014 page. Previous announcements on this Home page are now on our Features page.

Exciting times are ahead. Very soon we plan to upgrade this computer to Windows 7, then add movie maker equipment with which to publish a few of Janet's archived videos from the Mesquite Opry.

Thank you all for your continued patience during this time, and for your continued love of Janet McBride!


FYI: we also have recent information on some of Janet's mentees. You can go to that section of this page by clicking here.


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.



Janet's new CD "Here I Am" is now out of production and ready for purchase! On it are twenty-seven songs, with one brand new release.

The new number is "The Lottery," listed as song #17. The rest have been remastered and re-issued, the mastering done by the late Phil York, who produced Willie Nelson's "Red Headed Stranger."

To order this CD from Janet, just send $15 PPD to the address listed immediately below:

Janet McBride
P.O. BOX 850351
MESQUITE, TX 75185-0351

You can contact Janet via her Email by clicking here.

Janet previously forwarded pictures of the front and back of this CD, which was produced by her friend Mary Schutz. With both photos you can click for larger versions.

There is a story to tell about "Here I Am" -- why Janet chose the songs she did, where they came from, and more. We plan to present that story, in detail, after the webmaster upgrades his computer system.


Janet's Original Song
"A Cowgirl's Dream"
Featuring Patsy Montana
A Video on YouTube!

Says Janet: This is just finished. Mary Schutz did the work. The young girl is Mikki Daniel.

Check out all of the clips of Patsy which are some of the stuff we pulled from the 16mm and 8mm film in her closet. Just too cool.

You can view this video by clicking here.

You can see what Mikki wrote about Janet in her "First-Quarter" 2014 Newsletter on our new Mikki Daniel tribute page here.

There are, obviously, many things to add about the making of this video. As with the new CD above, that information will be coming soon. In the meantime, you can see what Janet wrote about the creation of her song "Yodeler's Dream" (posted on Roy Tucker's website) by clicking this link.


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!

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."
