Grand Ole Opry legend Jeannie Seely joined the SiriusXM Willie’s Roadhouse family as an air personality five years ago when she made her debut over Memorial Day weekend.
The Grammy winner, country hitmaker and award-winning songwriter recently renewed her contract to continue her weekly show, Sundays with Seely, where she shares intimate conversations with Opry performers and fellow artists.
With her charm and quick wit, she connects listeners with her memories and personal stories.
Sundays with Seely airs on SiriusXM’s Willies Roadhouse (ch. 61) from noon to 4 pm ET Sundays, re-airs at midnight to 4 am ET on Sundays, and is available on the SXM App.
During her five-year tenure, she has hosted and been instrumental on several SiriusXM specials, including Willie’s Roadhouse Virtual Family Christmas, a Prime Country (ch. 58) Town hall featuring Exile, and has been featured as a special guest on the The Beatles Channel’s (ch. 18) The Beatles Y’all Together Now with Tracy Gershon.
Jeannie was also celebrated with An American Classic virtual town hall and album release special.
I look forward to doing the show every Sunday and hearing from so many fans that I wouldn’t have the opportunity to know otherwise.

ABOUT JEANNIE SEELY
Jeannie Seely’s deep, moving vocals earned her the nickname “Miss Country Soul,” a title still used today.
An esteemed singer, songwriter, producer, actress, author and on-air personality, Seely added another title, “Doctor,” to her resume when she was awarded an honorary Doctorate of Arts from Lincoln Memorial University in 2019.
The third female country artist to win a GRAMMY® and the oldest female Grammy-winning artist who is still living.
She is among a select group of country artists who have scored No. 1 hits as a solo artist, duet partner and songwriter.
On September 16, 1967, Seely fulfilled her lifelong dream of joining the Grand Ole Opry®, becoming the first Pennsylvania native to do so.
Nearly 56 years later, Seely makes clear that it’s still a thrill and an honor each time she performs on the world-famous stage, which she has performed over 5300 times.
From her 1966 Top 10 Billboard album, The Seely Style, which featured “Don’t Touch Me,” to her self-produced album, Written in Song, consisting entirely of songs she’s written and recorded for more than 10 Country Music Hall of Fame® members, Seely’s recordings have spanned seven decades.
Seely first appeared on the Billboard charts in 1966, continued to score entries for 13 consecutive years on various Billboard charts, and as recently as 2022, has had a presence on the MusicRow charts. Seely also garnered a No. 1 on the Record World Country Singles chart in 1971 and a No. 1 on the Bluegrass Today chart in 2019.
In his 2003 book, Finding Her Voice: The Saga of Women in Country Music, music critic Robert K. Oermann wrote, “With her chin-out, tough/tender, heart-of-gold manner, Jeannie Seely remains one of Country’s most completely modern female personalities,” and that statement still holds true.
With a strong social media following and over four million views on her YouTube channel, Seely continues expanding her international presence as music sales and fans’ messages pour in.
She appeared in Willie Nelson’s movie Honeysuckle Rose and sang on the film’s RIAA® platinum-certified soundtrack, and for the past four years, Seely has hosted her own show, Sundays with Seely, on SiriusXM’s Willie’s Roadhouse.
She also served as a disc jockey on her own Armed Forces Network Show, which launched after her tour abroad for the troops.
She continues to receive letters of appreciation from American soldiers for her support.
She is also a fierce advocate for musicians’ rights and takes much pride in her involvement and support for the cause.
Nelson, along with Rhonda Vincent, Bill Anderson, Lorrie Morgan, Ray Stevens and many more of her friends, joined Seely for her most recent recording project on Curb Records, An American Classic, which has seen rave reviews and three radio releases.
Most recently, Seely recently won the Song of the Year Award at the Arkansas Country Music Awards and was honored with the Mississippi Career Achievement Award at the Mississippi Music Awards.
