As a four-time chart-topping country artist with 19 albums to his credit, including a whopping 72 tracks within the last year alone, John Schneider could quite realistically be counted amongst the most prolific and recognized entertainers of all time. He’s of course known all the world over for hit singles such as “It’s Now Or Never” (the top charting Elvis Presley cover of any genre ever), “Them Good Ol’ Boys Are Bad,” “I’ve Been Around Enough To Know,” “Country Girls,” “It’s A Short Walk from Heaven to Hell,” “I’m Gonna Leave You Tomorrow,” “What’s a Memory Like You (Doing in a Love Like This),” “You’re the Last Thing I Needed Tonight,” “At the Sound of the Tone,” “Take the Long Way Home,” “Love, You Ain’t Seen the Last of Me” and “Ruffled Skirts” right up to “Walk a Mile in My Shoes,” which he performed on the 2018 finale of Dancing with the Stars after personally duking it out for seven highly heralded weeks.
The latter is but a sliver of releasing one song a week that entire year as part of an ambitious project called The Odyssey, which was produced by longtime friend, personal champion, superstar session man and fellow Dukes collaborator Paul Leim, in addition to Greatest Hits…Still! (featuring acoustic re-recordings of several smash hits), plus the holiday EP Merry Christmas Baby. That unstoppable streak continues into 2019 with the announcement of a debut inspirational album slated for this summer, which is sure to expanded upon his remarkable crossover ability into a wide array of artistic territory.
“Coming from a musical theater background, I naturally gravitate toward many different aspects of entertainment. Personally it just seems like the right thing to do. I couldn’t imagine being locked into one area,” he explains of the desire to stay equally involved in music and acting. “The inspirational album is jam packed with a few standards, but also new songs whose intention is to make you think and feel something. The music itself is intentionally more raw, bluesy and edgy. I believe these inspirational songs especially should elicit some sort of physical reaction from the listener. These will do that for sure!”
