Ronnie McDowell is a musician of international renown. A fixture of country music since his 1977 breakthrough hit "The King Is Gone," McDowell may be best known for his songs "Older Women" and "You're Gonna Ruin My Bad Reputation," which each reached #1 on national country charts. He has recorded more than twenty studio albums in his career, and continues to tour to with his band the Rhythm Kings. McDowell has appeared on numerous radio and television programs, including Grand Ole Opry and Dick Clark's American Bandstand.
