Out of West Plains, Missouri, came Jan Howard in the 1960’s, eventually becoming one of the most popular female country music stars of her era. She changed her name from Lula Grace Johnson after moving to L.A. in 1953, and hooked up with songwriter Harlan Howard. She married Harlan shortly after they met, and he gave her the push onto the country music scene. He sent demos of her music to several music companies, which gained her notice. She started singing demos for stars such as Johnny Bond and Tex Ritter. In 1959, she recorded “Yankee Go Home” with her new name “Jan Howard.” She released several songs in the early 1960’s dealing with troubled relationships, and her single “What Makes a Man Wander” landed on the Top 30 in 1965. That year, Howard’s success led her to join Bill Anderson’s tours and television programs. The following year, collaboration with Anderson produced the hits "Time Out" and "I Know You're Married (But I Love You Still)."

Even more success found her when Howard released a solo effort “Evil On Your Mind,” which landed in the Top Five. Several other hits followed in that year, including “Bad Seed” and “For Loving You,” a duet with Anderson that hit number one. She joined the Grand Ole Opry in 1971, and by 1977 was a member of the Johnny Cash Show. Two years later, she was touring with Tammy Wynette throughout the U.S. and Great Britain. After releasing two albums in the 1980’s, she wrote a best-selling autobiography titled Sunshine and Shadow, remarried in 1990, and became a regular on the Grand Ole Opry
