Jimmy Fortune toured, sang and performed with the legendary Statler Brothers for 21 years. He joined them first as a temporary replacement for Lew DeWitt, after DeWitt heard him singing at a ski resort and recommended him. Fortune wrote the group’s second #1 hit, “Elizabeth,” on their 1983 album "Today," and followed that with two more #1 hits–“My Only Love” (from 1984s "Atlanta Blue") and “Too Much On My Heart” (from 1985s "Partners in Rhyme"). Fortune also wrote the top-10 hit “Forever” from 1986s "Four for the Show" and co-wrote the top-10 hit “More Than a Name on the Wall” from 1988s "The Greatest Hits." Jimmy has performed in all of the U.S. States, in Canadian Provinces, and in front of audiences as large as 100,000. Jimmy was privileged to perform at the White House on two occasions, once for President Ronald Reagan, and once for President George H. W. Bush. He also presented a special gift to actress Elizabeth Taylor by singing his song “Elizabeth” to her for her birthday celebration.
