I spent most of my life trying to become a Country Music star, and couldn't get the job done! I sing only occasionally now but am still doing some songwriting. I have been an office temp for a temp agency for the past 15 years. DIANE JORDAN Born in Hastings, Nebraska and raised in the nearby small town of Sutton, Diane was the youngest of four children born to a former country school teacher and a popcorn farmer. She knew by the age of seven that she wanted to be a singer. When her older sister moved to Nashville, 14 year old Diane came for a visit and soon landed a recording contract with ABC Paramount. Her first record, "Come On and Dance With Me," was produced by Felton Jarvis, who later produced Elvis. Later singles were "Padre" on Monument Records, "Thanks for These Memories" on Jack O'Diamond Records, the Marty Robbins penned/produced "The Way I Loved You Best" on Columbia Records (Marty offered to produce her after seeing her perform as opening act on his show in Denver), "Get Ready for My World" on Columbia Records and "They're Not Losing You" on Grand Prix Records, whose roster included Danny White, the famous Dallas Cowboy. Touring, always fun for Diane, took her to Holland, Denmark, Belgium, England, Italy, and France as well as across the US and Canada. She entertained on US military bases in Japan, Iwo Jima, Marcus Island, Germany, Labrador, Greenland, Puerto Rico and Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. She was featured with Stu Phillips at Opryland Theme Park during one season and made many guest performances on the Grand Ole Opry, even earning three of the Opry's rare encores. Favorite engagements were a month long stint at the Hacienda Hotel in Las Vegas with the Tommy Cash Show and nine “Country Cruises” to the Caribbean. She was the first American entertainer to appear on the "Best of British" show at the Silk Cut Festival of Country Music at Wembly Stadium, London. The versatile entertainer has performed not only with country music stars, such as Marty Robbins, Faron Young, Hank Snow, Hank Thompson, Ernest Tubb, Justin Tubb, Porter Wagoner, Kitty Wells, Don Gibson, Mel Tillis, Ronnie McDowell, Leroy Van Dyke, Charlie Daniels, Billy Joe Royal, Eddie Raven, Cal Smith, T.G. Sheppard, Freddie Weller and Glen Campbell, but also on Celebrity Golf Tournament shows with Rock 'n Roll "Golden Oldie" acts including The Diamonds, The Drifters, Frankie Avalon, Fabian, Bobby Rydell, Ronnie Dove, Johnny Tillotson and Ray Peterson. She was a featured singer with Nashville's Louis Brown Orchestra on many private party and country club engagements. Diane appeared in Alabama's video, "Touch Me When We're Dancing" and the Hank Williams Jr. video, "We Are Young Country." She was in a comedy skit with The Statler Brothers on the nationally televised Music City News Country Music Awards in the late 80s. Other television credits include TNN's "Nashville Now" and “Wrap Around Nashville" and the syndicated "Pop Goes the Country" and "That Nashville Music." She was featured for a year on the Louisville based syndicated "Music Place” hosted by Grand Ole Opry's Stu Phillips. Diane was a frequent guest on WSMV-TV's "The Ralph Emery Show" (then the highest rated local morning show in the US), even donning a swimsuit to serve as the program's Outhouse Queen, presiding for three years over its infamous outhouse races. She was featured in a 1977 documentary film, "That's Country," which was narrated by veteran TV actor, Lorne Greene, with whom she attended the movie's premiere in Halifax, Nova Scotia. In November of 2002, "Monster and the Stripper," a late 60s cult classic movie in which Diane played a chorine, was shown at the Nashville Independent Film Festival. She has done some modeling and commercial work for Lingerie Lady, Barber King Hair Cutters, and Joker Poker as well as jingles, including a duet for Schlitz Malt Liquor with Faron Young. Diane is now concentrating on songwriting. She was co-writing with the late Merle Kilgore, veteran writer of such hits as “Ring of Fire” and “Wolverton Mountain” until his death in 2005. A vegetarian since childhood, Diane is interested in nutrition and natural “cures.” Her July 26 birthday makes her a Leo, the sign of charisma and success in the spotlight. Diane says, "I'm still hoping to be a late bloomer!"
