Felice Bryant
Birth: Aug. 7, 1925
Death: Apr. 22, 2003

Country Musician/Songwriter. Born on August 7, 1925, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Felice began writing songs as a child. In 1945 at the age of 20 she met her husband Boudleaux Bryant when they formed a songwriting team that would go on to become one of the great songwriting teams of country music. They began by setting music to poetry that Felice had written, and soon afterwards they sent a copy of their song, "Country Boy" to Fred Rose, who bought the song and would go on to found the famous Acuff-Rose Publishing Company. In 1967 they left Acuff-Rose and formed their own company called House of Bryant Publishing Company. They continued writing through the 1970s and in 1979 they released together an album of them singing entitled, "All I Have To Do Is Dream" or "A Touch Of Bryant." In the 1980s it was estimated that they had written over 3000 songs and had sold over 300 million or more copies. In 1986 they were elected to the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame and in 1991 they were elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame. In 1987 Boudleaux died at the age of 67, but Felice continued to perform and write music up until her own death in April 2003 at the age of 77. They wrote songs for the likes of Al Martino, Dean Martin, Little Jimmy Dickens, Elvis Presley, the Beach Boys, the Grateful Dead, Ray Charles, Simon & Garfunkle, Sarah Vaughan, Carl Smith, Jim Reeves, The Everly Brothers, Frankie Laine, Buddy Holly, and Sonny James. Among there songs they wrote were "Hey Joe," "Bye Bye Love," "Problems," "All I Have To Do Is Dream," "Wake Up Little Susie," "Bird Dog," "Rocky Top," "We Could," and "Raining My Heart." (bio by: K)
