Jeannie C. Riley
BiographyJeannie C. Riley is best known for "Harper Valley P.T.A," a cut from a strange little concept album that became an instant classic and spawned a TV movie a few years later with belly-button queen Barbara Eden playing the "liberated" mom outraged at her uptight, two-faced townsfolk. Riley's got a sharp, nasal voice with a pronounced twang, well suited to country music. In the mid '70s, she turned to God and has since had a stable career in CCM, singing country-flavored Gospel songs with a polished but rootsy backing band.
