Johnny St. Clair is a big believer in keeping with what works. Take a look at country’s latest successes like the film ‘O Brother, Where Art Thou’ and such artists like Brad Paisley and Nickel Creek. It just goes to show the sound that worked for country’s finest taking the stage of the Grand Ole Opry all these years is making a successful return. Johnny St. Clair is an artist who wants to keep country moving forward without losing sight of what made it a unique musical part of America. A native of Lynchburg, Virginia, Johnny began to play the mandolin at the age of 6. A few years later he bought a guitar hoping to emulate people like Elvis, Faron Young and Ray Price. He says, “One of my greatest childhood memories is going to the Grand Ole Opry. During visits to Nashville, my family and I would go to Ernest Tubb’s Record Store and watch the live bands and, somehow, I just knew that I wanted to do that too!” Johnny first took to the stage at 14 as part of a band that played proms and dances. From there, he went on to be a bass player in a bluegrass band called ‘The Hill City Cut Ups’. He played the North Carolina concert circuit for quite a while before he formed the band ‘Western Star’ in 1987. He musical light shone brightly in honky tonks and nightclubs from Florida to Maryland. Later, he fronted for the likes of Keith Whitley and Little Jimmy Dickens. From here, Johnny became an integral part of the Old Dominion Opry as well as a full time performer for the Busch Family Resorts, spending 8 years with their corporate promotions division.

‘Fix It Man’ is a good example of what country should be. Johnny’s voice is a nice cross between Ronnie Milsap’s and Willie Nelson’s musical style. Nine of the 12 songs on this CD are written by Johnny showing his great talent isn’t limited to the presentation of the songs.
