Introducing a selection of Lonnie Bartmess country music songs promoted with Hillcrest Music Canada. “Juliana is based on the Juliana hotel in Ada Oklahoma where I ventured a time or two as a teen before I joined the Marines between the mid and late sixties. The hotel has been torn down since and the corner of Rennie and Main has been named Juliana Park with a granite marker that has Juliana Park engraved. Nice little (piece) of history.” I want to name the great musicians that played the music for this album.
Country Music Musician Lonnie Bartmess

Lonnie recorded his album at Sound Studio, Nashville,Tn (produced by Tom Holland, who also played the shaker on Yolonda). ‘Never Got Over You’ is about a man that just simply can’t get on with his life because he is still in love with a woman named Yolonda.’
‘Over There’ is a song I wrote about myself. It obviously relates to depression, pain and survivor guilt. I know lots of vets that feel the same.’

‘Too Lonely Tonight’ I wrote one night when I was camped out on the side of a hill all by myself. It was just too lonely.’
