ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
There are a few names that come to mind when you think of, "traditional", country music and radio, but only one name stands out in particular and that is, "Mr. Country Gold", J.D. Higgins. A gentleman whose charm and personality shine as brightly as his beautiful white hair.

John David Higgins, Jr. and the lovely Iva Lee Williams Higgins have been happily married for 41 years, and reside in Sparta, NC. They had one precious daughter, Leann, whose life was lost in an automobile accident on August 12, 2002. She was 28 years old. J.D. and Iva have 3 beautiful granddaughters, Shayla, Payton & Kelsey, whom they love and cherish. J.D. also has a wonderful, loving brother and sister-in-law, Jim and Michelle Higgins, who reside in Raleigh, North Carolina.

J.D. has been involved in country music for almost 50 years. He put his first band together when he was 15 years old called, The Quarter Notes. In the early 1960's, he formed the Group, Johnny Dee and the Continentals. They recorded several records, two in particular called, "A Tribute To President Kennedy", and "Man With A Broken Heart". J.D. played drums and worked local events and dances around his hometown of Sparta, NC. The band played on WPAQ's Merry Go Round in Mt. Airy, NC and WBOB in Galax, VA. He was attending Radio School in Charlotte, NC when he first saw the George Jones Show, and nothing was ever the same. J.D. has appeared on many TV shows, including the Don McGraw Show in Roanoke, VA, Top Of The Morning with Don Reno & Red Smiley, The Arthur Smith Show, The Tommy Faile Show in Charlotte, NC, Bob Smallwood's Pickin Time in Abingdon, VA, Jimmy Snow's Gospel Country, and Ron Campbell's Old Time Gospel Sing, in Nashville, TN. Radio shows include, The Midnight Jamboree,- Ernest Tubb Record Shop, Eddie Stubbs Radio Show on WSM, and Opry Star Spotlight with Haril Hensley. He recorded several single records back in 1973 in the late, great Faron Young's studio in Nashville, TN. Later he had a very successful album "On My Way Up" in 1976, and also began promoting Country Music Shows, in 1976. Country music legend, Billy Grammer, produced several of J.D.'s records in the early 1970's. J.D. started his famed radio program, J.D.'s Country Gold & Top Notch Grass, on WBRF 98.1, Galax, VA, in July 1994, which can be heard on Saturday mornings from 8:00am to 10:00am. J.D., along with Del Reeves, brought Country and Bluegrass music to Sparta, NC for 10 years, known as The Del Reeves Homecoming. He has worked with 47 members of the Grand Ole Opry, at last count, many of which have been on his shows. He now has two outstanding CD's "Mr. Country Gold Sings Pure Country" and a heart warming Gospel CD "Mr. Country Gold Sings Gospel Favorites From My Heart To Your House". All a "MUST", for your CD collection.

He later formed his current band, The Country Express, which have been royally entertaining their audiences for over 25 years, and still going strong...
