Born in 1933 in Montreal, Quebec, country artist Stu Phillips grew up listening to the Grand Ole Opry as a child and fell in love with the show and country music. Thirty-four years later, he gained the high honor of becoming a member of the Opry himself. At an early age, he created his own band, playing at local events. He worked part-time at a radio station as radio announcer, producer, engineer and disc jockey. While on the air, he hosted a variety of shows, like Stu for Breakfast, Town and Country and Cowtown Jamobree. He moved from radio to television as the host of The Outrider and Red River Jamboree.
He also worked as a recording artist, releasing his Echoes of the Canadian Foothills album. After four more years in TV, he moved to Nashville in 1965. There, he found success as an artist, releasing albums like the Number Fourteen Singin’ and Number Thirty-Six Grassroots Country. In 1967, he was invited to join the Grand Ole Opry.
Parnell has released several charting singles, including the Number One Canadian Country single “Kathy Keep Playing” and the Number One Country Adult Contemporary single “Feels Like Lovin’.” He has charted on the U.S. Country charts as well, with Top 40 hits like “Bracero,” “The Great El Tigre (The Tiger),” “Vin Rosé” and “Juanita Jones.”
On top of being an active member of the Grand Ole Opry, Phillips has also been inducted into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame.
