Lonnie Bartmess singer songwriter introduces a selection of his 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. Lonnie Bartmess has named the great musicians that played the music for this album.
(Drums) John Gardner (bass), Duncan Mullins (lead guitar), Dug Grieves (steel guitar), Sonny Garrish (fiddle), Rob Hajacas (piano & keys), Walt Cunningham (acoustic guitar), Mark Moseley (harmonica), Robert Allen. Background vocals Margie Cates, Monty Allen and Mark Moseley.
Lonnie Bartmess ‘Never Got Over You’
He 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.”
Music Row is a historic district located southwest of downtown Nashville, Tennessee, United States. Widely considered the heart of Nashville’s entertainment industry, Music Row has also become a metonymous nickname for the music industry as a whole, particularly in country music, gospel music and contemporary Christian music.
The Music Row district in Nashville is centred on 16th and 17th Avenues South (called Music Square East and Music Square West respectively within the Music Row area) along with several side streets. Lacy J. Dalton had a hit song in the 1980s about 16th Avenue while the area served as namesake to Dolly Parton’s 1973 composition Down on Music Row. Wikipedia
