Patty Loveless Career

Having grown up listening to the music of the Grand Ole Opry both in Pikeville, and then in Louisville, Roger had moved to Nashville in 1970 and became a producer with The Porter Wagoner Show.

When they arrived in Nashville, Roger went to Porter Wagoner’s office without an appointment and managed to introduce his sister to Wagoner. He was able to convince Wagoner to listen to his sister sing, and she performed a song she wrote for their father, John, called Sounds of Loneliness. To their surprise, Wagoner thumped his hand on his desk and said he was going to help her out.

Wagoner introduced them to his singing partner at the time, Dolly Parton, and encouraged her to go back home and finish school, although he did invite her to travel with him and Dolly Parton on weekends during the summer.

After graduation from Fairdale High School in Louisville, Kentucky, in 1975 Patty Ramey became a full-time member of the Wilburn Brother’s band as their lead female singer. She met Wilburn’s new drummer, Terry Lovelace who came from a small town in western North Carolina, Kings Mountain, and shared many things in common with Loveless.

At first, Patty kept her friendship and her growing relationship with Lovelace a secret from the Wilburn’s. However, eventually, Doyle Wilburn learned about it and asked Patty to break it off. However, Ramey, being the rebellious teenager, instead of quit the Wilburn’s and left with her boyfriend for western North Carolina.

In North Carolina, Patty and her husband Terry played in a circuit of small bars and concert halls. She sang covers of late 70s rock songs, along with Linda Ronstadt and Bonnie Raitt tunes, with the occasional country song. (After her marriage, she adopted the professional name, Patty Loveless, as not to draw any connection to adult film actress Linda Lovelace.

Loveless and her husband eventually divorced amicably in 1986. She contacted her brother Roger to help her get back to Nashville. After being in the rock ‘n’ roll scene for so long she felt completely out of the country-music loop but wanted to sing country music again. Roger helped his sister cut a five-song demo tape, one of them being a rough cut of her self-penned song “I Did”, which she first wrote as a teenager, then later included on her first album. Roger Ramey then began to spread the word around about her talent.

After Roger was successful in signing Loveless to MCA, Tony Brown brought in one of his top producers, Emory Gordy Jr., to help develop Loveless for MCA. Together, they produced a series of songs for her, and all of them were released to radio stations with varying degrees of success. MCA released her first single, Lonely Days, Lonely Nights on December 7, 1985, charting on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for 8 weeks, reaching No. 46 on January 25, 1986.

After her release from Sony Nashville, in 2006 Loveless sang a duet with Bob Seger on his Face the Promise album, also collaborating with Solomon Burke on his Nashville album and performing a duet, “Out of My Mind”, with Vince Gill on his album These Days. This was their first recorded duet since “My Kind of Woman, My Kind of Man”, which they recorded in 1998.

She took a two-year sabbatical from touring in 2006 and 2007 to heal from the loss of her mother & mother-in-law and enjoy a home life with husband Emory Gordy, Jr., though she & Gordy performed several times at the Grand Ole Opry and did a couple of guest appearances at other shows. In 2007, Loveless was also a judge for the 6th annual Independent Music Awards to support independent artists’ careers. Loveless was inducted into The Kentucky Music Hall of Fame on April 7, 2011.

On June 25, 2019, The New York Times Magazine listed Patty Loveless among hundreds of artists whose material was reportedly destroyed in the 2008 Universal fire.
