John Conlee Rose Colored Glasses

Conlee moved to Nashville, Tennessee, in pursuit of a musical career, signing to ABC Records in 1976 by 1971. He charted for the first time in 1978 with “Rose Colored Glasses,” a No. 5 hit on the Billboard Hot Country Singles (now Hot Country Songs) charts, as well as the title track to his 1978 debut album. The album would go on to produce his first two number one hits in “Lady Lay Down” and “Backside of Thirty.”

Conlee released his 1979 album Forever on MCA following ABC’s merger with MCA Records. The album’s singles, “Before My Time” and “Baby, You’re Something,” respectively reached No. 2 and No. 7. A second MCA release, Friday Night Blues, produced two more No. 2 hits in the title track and “She Can’t Say That Anymore,” followed by the No. 12 “What I Had with You.” 1981’s With Love accounted for yet another No. 2 in “Miss Emily’s Picture.”

He donated his performance of “Rose Colored Glasses” at a concert at the Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville to benefit the Lymphatic Research Foundation (New York) in 2005. He sang his signature song and auctioned off a pair of “rose colored glasses” with the proceeds going to LRF.
