John Conlee has been a member of the Grand Ole Opry since 1981. His success began in the late 1970's. In March of 1978, he released "Rose Colored Glasses," a song Conlee wrote, which became a huge hit as well as his signature song. In January of 1979, he released "Back Side Of Thirty" which went on to become a No. 1 record, and the hits continued to roll. The John Conlee hit list includes songs such as "Lady Lay Down," "Before My Time," "Friday Night Blues," "Miss Emily's Picture," "Busted," "I Don't Remember Loving You," "Common Man," "I'm Only In It For The Love," "In My Eyes," "As Long As I'm Rocking With You," "Years After You," "Domestic Life," "Mama's Rockin' Chair," "Hit The Ground Runnin'" and "Fellow Travelers." Overall, there have been 29 single releases throughout the years with 26 of them charting in the top 20 or better. Eight of those 26 have reached the coveted No. 1 spot on the national country charts. All of Conlee's hits have that unmistakable common thread - that unique voice.
