A jack of all trades, John swooped America off their feet with his unequivocal performance as Bo Duke,
but what they never were anticipating was his unique musical talent. It was in the early 80’s that John
would sign with Scotti Brothers Label and unleash his debut full-length, Now or Never, which peaked at
#8 on the US Country Billboard charts. Also from the album came “It’s Now or Never,” a remake of the
Elvis Presley hit, which peaked at #4 on the US Country Billboard charts in 1981 and remains the top
charting Elvis cover of all time in any genre to date. Continuing to release albums year after year, John
unleashed Quiet Man and If You Believe and in 1984, signed with MCA Nashville. Through MCA
Nashville, John released Too Good to Stop Now which included his first #1 hits, “I’ve Been Around
Enough to Know” and “Country Girls,” also peaking at #1 on the CAN Country music charts, cementing
his way into the country music world. The following year, John unleashed Tryin’ To Outrun the Wind,
followed by A Memory Like You which debuted at #1 on the US Country Billboard charts, a first for him.
Off the pinnacle album A Memory Like You came “What’s a Memory Like You (Doing In A Love Like
This)” and “You’re The Last Thing I Needed Tonight,” singles which both peaked at #1 on the US
Country Billboard charts and CAN Country. In the late 80’s, John continued unleashing albums including
his quintessential Greatest Hits record. Taking some time off to pursue acting opportunities, he would
return with Worth The Wait, John’s Acoustic Christmas, The Promise and his most recent album, Home
For Christmas, with The Dukes of Hazzard co-star, Tom Wopat in 2014.
