Oct. 21 – Heart of Texas Concert

   Grand Ole Opry royalty and Texas traditionalists will grace the stage of Seguin’s Stephen and Mary Birch Texas Theater Saturday, October 21 for two performances at 2:30 and 7:30 p.m.

    Miss Country Soul Jeannie Seely will be joined by Texas Legend Darrell McCall, Mona McCall, Seguin home-town hero Dottsy and Sirius XM disc jockey and singer Dallas Wayne.

    Tickets are $20 and may be purchased at Gift & Gourmet, Keepers, The Seguin Area Chamber of Commerce or on-line at thetexas.org (ticketstothecity.com) by phoning (830) 379-6382.

    On September 16, Miss Seely was honored at the Grand Ole Opry show commemorating her 50 years as a member. Following the success of her 1966 hit “Don’t Touch Me,” she joined the revered show a year later.

    “Being an Opry member and part of that family is a crowning achievement for me,” she said during a recent telephone interview. “And I know I’m very blessed to still be doing what I love -- and that’s singing and writing.”

    The Pennsylvania native spent time in California where she worked at Liberty, Imperial and Four Star Records before making her move to Nashville. Songwriter Hank Cochran who wrote “Don’t Touch Me” and long-time friend Dottie West encouraged her move to Music City. Seely and Cochran were married from 1969-1979. She married Nashville attorney Gene Ward in 2010.

    Ms. Seely related that it actually was in Houston where “Don’t Touch Me” first hit the top of the charts. That career song won her a Grammy award and gave her the confidence she needed to keep honing her craft. She also penned “Leavin and Sayin’ Goodbye” which Faron Young took up the charts. That record earned her a BMI Songwriter’s award.

    “I love Texas,” she said proudly, “as I toured here early on with Ernest Tubb and later with duet partner Jack Greene. I’m hoping to do an album saluting Lone Star State music in the near future.”

    Seely’s latest release, “Written in Song,” contains tracks all penned or co-written by the veteran performer and Opry host. Several of these songs as well as favorite hits will be part of her repertoire when she performs in Seguin.

    Texas Legend Darrell McCall will be included in the show.  Darrell has gained a large following in his 55 plus years in the industry recording standards including “There’s Still A Lot Of Love In San Antone” “It’s The Water” “Down The Road of Daddy’s Dreams” and “Dreams of A Dreamer.”  Darrell is currently working on his biography scheduled to be released in March of 2018.  The book covers his early life, his working with legends like Ray Price and Faron Young to his current status in the industry.     

    Local favorite Dottsy Brodt got her start at Alamo Village near Brackettville before traveling to Nashville and recording Top Ten hits “Storms Never Last” and “After Sweet Memories, Play Born to Lose Again.”

    Dottsy left the music business for a time and worked with autistic and mentally challenged children.

    Her latest project on Heart of Texas Records is “Texas Sensation” and includes a tribute song to her hometown of Seguin.

    She has been inducted as a member of the Country Music Association Texas Hall of Fame and is active in the Seguin community where she serves on the Texas Theater’s Board of Directors.

    Springfield, Missouri native Dallas Wayne is a multitalented singer/songwriter and radio disc jockey and music producer. After touring Europe and recording two albums, Wayne got his start in radio in 1989 and joined Outlaw Country on Sirius satellite radio in 2005.

    When Sirius and XM merged in 2008, Wayne found his true niche as on-air personality and associate format manager for Willie’s Roadhouse. Based in Austin, he can be heard on satellite channels 59 and 60 weekdays.

    Also, he’s a proud new member of the Heart of Texas Records’ family and released his latest project, “Songs the Jukebox Taught Me,” in 2016.

    Seguin’s historic theater opened in 1931 and was a popular showcase for the Western movies of Gene Autry, Roy Rogers and John Wayne.

    A $2.5 million theater restoration project is underway by the City Conservation Society. The theater’s design is part New Vintage, Art Modern and Western Town style with a vintage marquee welcoming visitors to come and experience memory-making family entertainment.
