Before Charley Pride decided to record Country Johnny Mathis’ song, “Music In My Heart”, in 2017 and release the album of the same name, Country Johnny Mathis had recorded it in 1972 with the legendary Jordanaires singing background vocals. The Jordanaires are known not only for their solo career but became popular for providing background vocals for Elvis Presley, in live appearances, recordings and feature films from 1956 to 1972. This recording also had the A-list players on the session with studio musicians like “Pig” Robbins (piano), Pete Wade (guitar), Johnny Gimble (fiddle), Weldon Myrick (steel guitar), Buddy Harmon (drums), Bob Moore (bass) and Harold Bradley (guitar).
Now fans of Country Johnny Mathis can hear the original songwriter version of “Music In My Heart” when the song releases to all digital streaming platforms on February 5th, 2021.
