Jeannie C. Riley (born Jeanne Carolyn Stephenson on October 19, 1945 in Anson, Texas) to Oscar and Nora Stephenson is an American country and gospel music singer.

Jeannie C. RileyShe is known for her major 1968 hit “Harper Valley PTA” that made her the first ever female singer to have a song go to No. 1 on both the country and pop music charts. Written by Tom T. Hall, the song was released on the Plantation Records label. At the time, the lyrics were seen as risqué with “attitude” and the attractive Riley was marketed as a sex symbol dressed in an evocative tight mini-skirt and leather Go-Go boots.

She became a much talked about overnight sensation, and the song earned her the Grammy Award for Best Female Country Vocal Performance and the Country Music Association “Single of the Year” award. The song itself was a phenomenon that led to a 1978 motion picture and the 1981 “Harper Valley PTA” television show.

    Wow a blast from the past.
    commenting on classic rock; a music loving friend said: 60s thru 80s stuff, now maybe some 90s too.
    Beatles, Stones, Doors, Eagles, Hendrix, Blondie, Huey Lewis, the list goes on and on…

    I disagree, as far as the original intent.
