Biography
THE PITCH:

Based on a play by Ben Jones (a/k/a Cooter on Dukes of Hazzard & former Congressman), “Ol’ Diz: A Musical Baseball Story" is about legendary Hall-of-Fame baseball pitcher Jay Hanna “Dizzy” Dean and his rollicking journey from barefoot cotton picker to national renown. The music was written by Folk-Blues recording artist David Olney & Smothers Brothers show contributor John Hadley (with contributions from Kevin Welch and Ben Jones). The duo recorded the 11 Americana-themed songs about the play's hero and America's past time in John Hadley’s cabin in Nashville, TN.

Ben Jones has performed a one-man version of “Ol’ Diz” play to live audiences, including two special performances at the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY.

With a recording & performing career spanning four decades, David Olney’s songs have been recorded by Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, Del McCoury, Tim O’Brien, Lonnie Brooks, James King, Slaid Cleaves, Dale Ann Bradley, Ann Rabson, Chatham County Line and others.

John Hadley’s chart-topping songs have been recorded by Waylon Jennings, Wynonna Judd, Garth Brooks, Tricia Yearwood, T. Graham Brown, John Hiatt, George Burns, Dean Miller, The Kingston Trio, Webb Wilder and many others.
