Janet and John Appear Before President Ronald Reagan!

On November 5, 1988, President Reagan visited the Mesquite Rodeo to give a speech, at which Janet and the Mesquite Opry Regulars performed. Janet's husband John took a video of the proceedings, and we have three clips from that event on our video page.

Janet's son, Mark McBride, sang in a video dedicated to our troops during Operation Desert Storm. He performed the song "Cards and Letters" by Sheryl Caddick, and it, too, is now on our video page.


Ever More Songs from Janet's New CD!

We keep adding songs from the Honky Tonk Ballads CD onto our Audio page, bringing the total number, now, to thirteen. Janet sent in photos from the 60s, one featuring herself with then husband Mr. Claude McBride, and the other herself with a DJ and Vern Stovall. We placed them, alternatively, with the first four songs in the "Announcing" section.

Our eventual goal is to include all the Honky Tonk CD numbers for stream-only, as many DJs have expressed an interest in playing them on their station(s). Special thanks goes out to Denny Mager at KAXE-FM in Grand Rapids, Minnesota for his recent request.

You can find high quality pictures from this CD's J-card on our Features page.

We placed ordering details on on our Links page. Just scroll the page down until the frame is totally in view, then scroll the frame to get all of the details!



As part of a "goodie box" for her webmaster at Christmas time, there was a Patsy Montana Songbook dated 1941 from Janet. We began a section displaying excellent historic photos from that songbook on our Patsy Montana page.

Janet and John appeared with Kacey Musgraves at a "going away" concert of sorts before she went to appear on the Nashville Star program. Janet recently sent in the above photo from this event.

We will eventually put captures of these words in our Kacey Musgraves section, but, for now, you can see them, and the text from which they were drawn, by clicking the photos immediately below.


Janet appears regularly at the Annual Campfire Tales Festival in Fort Worth, and this year the Star-Telegram even posted an article about it, which we had a link to when it was still on-line.

Janet sent in examples of her "calling cards" for this event, which we will someday put on her Museum Page, but, for now, you can see by clicking the three photos below.

LeAnn Rimes appeared as a presenter at the April 16, 2007 CMT Music Video Awards. Above is a screen grab from her red carpet interview with Katie Cook.

Below are LeAnn's comments about her red carpet experience.

We left the house at 4:30pm and hit the red carpet by 5:15pm. There were a ton of fans everywhere! I made a stop to sign for everyone before I did my glorious walk for the cameras!

After our walk down the red carpet, where I took pictures with Kelly Pickler and Emerson Drive, Dean and I snuck a quick bite of food in backstage. I then went to my dressing room to find Roseanne Cash sharing it with me, LOVE HER! I ran into Kris Kristofferson, whom always thanks me for recording "Bobby McGee." I continue to tell him it's the best song ever! He shrugs it off, too modest!

You can read LeAnn's entire journal by joining her fan club at the link listed below, and view CMT's page about her at the link below that.

We have updated our Charlotte Autry page to include her three most recent Emails, all dated 2007. Things are happening rather rapidly this year.

What do you do when you're the Yodeling Queen and a group of people (who want to start a website on yodeling) send you pertinent questions about your good self?

Why, answer them of course! Please see our Calendar page for the discussion.

Mr. Mukai Pays Another Visit

Mr. Mukai is the great fan of Janet's who lives in Japan but visited the United States last year just to see Janet perform in person. He returned this year and, once again, saw her with the Buckaroo's in Fort Worth.

Janet will be sending a picture and more information, but, for now, we placed a faxed message just received from Mr. Mukai on our Calendar page as well.



Congratulations Janet for your mention in the current (August, 2006) issue of Texas Highways! Janet talks about the article on our Calendar page.


Cassette Recordings

We recently added six new songs digitized from, and only available on, cassette tapes! The most recent three are under "Announcing" on our audio page, and the others are under "Cassettes."

It is our goal to one day provide all of the cassette songs not yet transferred to CD, as well as all of the LP songs in the same status. Enjoy!

We now have a tribute page on Mike with a couple of photos, his newsletter, a flyer page, some of his excellent writing and more. You can visit it here.

We just added three excellent and classic-style songs from Mike's CDs. You can hear them on our audio page.

We created a new photo album containing forty-three screen-grabs from Mike's DVDs, and you can reference that album on our photo page.

We've digitized some of the performances on Mr. Johnson's two DVD set, and placed them on our Video page.

Janet wrote a few words about her appearance on one of these DVDs, and we quoted her on our Calendar page.


Sandy K. Laughlin

Ms. Laughlin sent us her magnificent CD. She is quite the singer and songwriter. We've placed 3 of her titles on our audio page.
