John Conlee will be on stage October 1 at the Decatur Civic Center.


DECATUR – After nearly 40 years of touring the United States, the country music artist John conlee continues to travel, eager to meet his audience.

He is just as excited as the audience.

“We are out of containment, hopefully forever,” he said.

Conlee will be on stage on Friday October 1 at Decatur Civic Center.

The song “Rose Colored Glasses” gave Conlee his first hit in 1978. “I’ve been doing it full time since then,” he said.

Over 30 hits later, he continues to record and perform.

“Our challenge, we can’t get them all in one show,” Conlee said. “We try to reach the principals who are the most questioned. Whatever I can’t seem to do, I’ll hear about it in the autograph line after the show. But it’s a wonderful problem to have.

Conlee promised the classics from her tracklist including “Backside of Thirty”, “Old School”, “I Don’t Remember Loving You” and “I’m Only in it for the Love”.

Throughout the show, Conlee plans to mix a few new songs with some gospel classics.

“It’s a bit of everything,” he says.

One of his last songs, “Walking Behind the Star”, is dedicated to law enforcement.

When he’s not on the road, Conlee lives in Nashville, Tenn., Where he spends his time playing on the Grand Olé Opry and in his church, Cornerstone of Nashville.

Music occupies most of his shows; however, Conlee often discusses songwriters and their importance to her career.

“And during the show, I open up and let people in the crowd ask me questions,” he said. “After the show is over, I hang out for autographs and photos. Mingling with people is what makes it different for us, to be one and one with the crowd.
