She is known as “The Grand Lady of the Grand Ole Opry” . Jean Sheppard is celebrating her 56th year on the show. Jean helped blazed the path for country music’s other top female stars like Reba with a pioneering career that goes back to the 1940s. She teamed up with fellow Hall of Fame member Ferlin Husky in 1953 on “A Dear John Letter,” her first No. 1 country hit and made her the first million-selling female artist in the post-World War II era.
