Del E. Webb Center for the Performing Arts
After singing with the Statler Brothers for 21 years and releasing five studio albums, Fortune performs a solo acoustic show blending original country songs and Statler classics.

Joining the Statler Brothers in 1982, Fortune quickly lived up to his name. He wrote the group's second No. 1 hit, "Elizabeth," on their 1983 album Today, and followed that with two more No. 1 hits--"My Only Love" (from 1984's Atlanta Blue) and "Too Much On My Heart" (from 1985's Pardners in Rhyme). Fortune also wrote the top-10 hit "Forever" from 1986's Four for the Show and co-wrote the top-10 hit "More Than a Name on the Wall" from 1988's The Greatest Hits.

After the Statler Brothers retired, Jimmy seized the opportunity to launch a solo career to share new music with his fans.

    Jimmy; I have a couple of songs you may want to take a look at.
    A Recitation “Elizabeth was her Name” with soft music in the back ground. True story of my Grandma. I have it on a c.d. Another “On the other Side” I can record it on a cassette tape. I know you have both recorded; this just another view on the songs. I can Mail you copies. Just let me know.
    Sincerely;
    Perry Posey
