Info zu Softly and Tenderly (Remastered)

Country Gospel from this veteran recording artist who grew up in the Ozark Mountains singing in old country churches and now takes you back to the real sound of Gospel that's recorded in a historic 150 year old Ozark Church.

Of all the albums that Stan Hitchcock has recorded in his 43 years as an entertainer, this is his favorite and one that has a special place in his heart.

It features the traditional, old wooden church sound that he grew up with and that carry so many memories of a young man growing up. On the last few selections of this cd Ronnie Reno plays guitar with Stan and sings tenor harmony. "Softly and Tenderly from the Old Country Church" is a collection of some of Stan's favorite songs. Parts of the cd were recorded in an 150 year old church in the Ozark Mountains and include some stories of where the songs came from in Stan's life.

Stan started playing and singing for audiences when he was 12 years old, first at churches in the Ozark Mountains where he was raised, and then on Radio Station KWTO in Springfield, Missouri.

Stan moved to Nashville in 1962 and started recording and touring. He enjoyed many chart records from 1962 to 1982 and developed a strong worldwide audience for his music, stage appearances and television shows.

He starred in his own nationwide television show, "The Stan Hitchcock Show". from 1964 to 1972 and then went on to head up the team that started Country Music Television (CMT) and ran that network from 1984 to 1991.

Stan is currently the Chairman/CEO of a new cable, satellite and broadband delivered network called "BlueHighways TV" with offices in Hendersonville, Tennessee.

Stan and his family live on a farm in Sumner County, Tennessee and raise Missouri Foxtrotter horses for trailriding.

Stanley Edward Hitchcock
21 March 1936, Pleasant Hope, near Kansas City, Missouri, USA. In 1940, Hitchcock’s family relocated to a farm in Springfield. He was taught the guitar as a boy and first appeared on a local talent show in 1948. He performed regularly during his teens on KWTO and WTTS Springfield. After completing his education, he enlisted in the US Navy where he formed a country band that entertained on ship and at various countries the ship visited including Japan. When he was discharged four years later, he became involved with the Good Samaritan Boys Ranch, an organisation who aimed to help neglected and homeless children. Hitchcock sang gospel music over various radio stations to raise funds for the project. He made his first recordings, in 1961, for Don Law at Columbia Records but failed to gain his first chart entries, ‘She’s Looking Good’ and ‘Rings’, until he moved to the Epic label in 1967. (He was seemingly the first country singer on that label). After two more minor hits, he made the Top 17 with ‘Honey I’m Home’ (his biggest hit) in 1969. After ‘Call Me Gone’ the next year, he did just that and departed to GRT, where he managed only two Top 60 entries before, in 1973 and 1974, achieving three minor hits on Cinnamon. In 1978, he moved labels again to MMI, where he managed to chart ‘Falling’ (number 100) and a duet with Sue Richards, ‘Finders Keepers Losers Weepers’ (number 85). His final chart entry, ‘She Sings Amazing Grace’, arrived in 1981 on the Ramblin’ label but he later recorded an album for Audiograph Alive.

During his career Hitchcock has achieved far more success from radio and television work than from his recordings. After working as a disc jockey on KWTO and KTTS, he moved to Nashville in 1962, where he hosted the WLAC-TV morning show and also guested on most of the top programmes. Between 1964 and 1970, he presented The Stan Hitchcock Show which was syndicated and between 1979 and 1983, he hosted Stan Hitchcock From The Ozarks and also started the Heart To Heart programme. In 1982, he was an important member of the team that founded CMT (initially called CMTV) and headed the Nashville operations of the organisation. When CMT was sold, in 1991, to Gaylord Entertainment, Hitchcock relocated to Branson, Missouri, where he became founder, president and chairman of the cable television channel Americana Television Network, that presented round-the-clock programmes featuring a wide selection of all forms of American folk, country, gospel, bluegrass and blues. Hitchcock continues to be active within the industry but mainly in administrative work.
