Kentucky native and Grand Ole Opry member, John Conlee, has one of country music's most recognizable voices. Self-penned and signature hit "Rose Colored Glasses," was the first of over 30 hit singles, most of which charted in the Top 10 or better. Some of the songs from the John Conlee hit list include "Back Side of Thirty, " "Lady Lay Down," "Friday Night Blues," "Common Man," "I'm Only In It For The Love" and "Domestic Life." All of Conlee's hits have that unmistakable common thread - that unique voice. In 2015, Conlee hasn't slowed down and continues to cut songs with substance with the release of Classics 2 that includes a tribute to law enforcement titled "Walkin' Behind the Star."
