Ronnie McDowell had his first chart success with a song called the “King Is Gone.”  It was a tribute to Elvis Presley, released shortly after the death of the King of Rock and Roll. That was all that Ronnie needed to jump start his career into country music from 1979 until 1986 McDowell had chart toppers like; “Older Women,” “You’re Gonna Ruin My Bad Reputation” and “Watchin Girls Go By” just to name a few. Now Ronnie has a new song A Single Woman and he hopes to it makes it on the charts again.

Ronnie McDowell seemed to have a lot of chart success by the mid 80’s he had racked up songs like “Personally,” “You Made A Wanted Man Of Me,” “All Tied Up,” and “In A New York Minute.” Moving to Curb Records in 1986, his current label to date, McDowell scored a Top 10 hit with “It’s Only Make Believe,” a duet with Conway Twitty on what was Twitty’s breakthrough hit from 1958. Two years later Ronnie teamed up with Jerry Lee Lewis for a rocking duet that McDowell wrote called,”You’re Never Too Old To Rock N’ Roll.” Then he went on to record his version of the pop standard “Unchained Melody,” which became a #1 country music video for Ronnie.

Is Ronnie McDowell back in the mainstream of country music? Only time and the charts will tell. Here’s a look back to when Ronnie was catapulted to the top of the charts and was on every television show from 1979 till around 1986 when his career fell from the mainstream. The one song he was criticized for was ‘The King is Gone’ many thought McDowell wanted to take the Kings throne in his absence.
