Sunday Morning Classic Spotlight to Feature Ronnie McDowell
Ronnie McDowell took a giant step from near obscurity into the big time with his 1977 tribute to Elvis Presley “The King is Gone.” That hit gained air play on Country and Pop Radio stations all across the great USA, and even around the world.
McDowell co-wrote “The King is Gone” with Lee Morgan. It opened the door to a career that has produced eighteen top country hits and created a famously loyal fan following. 1979 “Wandering Eyes” hit number two, “Older Women” hit number one. In 1987 he recorded a remake of Conway Twitty’s massive 1958 hit “It’s Only Make Believe” with Conway providing a guest vocal.
Ronnie McDowell resides in Hendersonville, Tennessee. He has five children. McDowell still tours and enjoys painting as a hobby.
