SOME HISTORY â KATHIE BAILLIE OF BAILLIE AND THE BOYS
Born in New Jersey, raised in Connecticut and Delaware, Kathieâs musical talents were nurtured by her parents, Jim and Kay Baillie. While still in her teens, Kathie began performing at school functions and local cafes, playing acoustic guitar and singing covers of Judy Collins, Joan Baez, and Bonnie Raitt. Influenced by both the folk music scene and the confessional songwriting style of Joni Mitchell, James Taylor and Tim Harden, Kathie developed her own heartfelt style.
In the early 1970âs, Kathie, future husband Michael Bonagura, and his longtime school friend, Alan LeBeouf, formed âBittersweet,â an acoustic trio. Known for their close harmonies and Kathieâs crystalline voice, the trio toured extensively up and down the East Coast performing to sold-out audiences at legendary NYC clubs (The Bottom Line, Folk City, Trax). They released their first single, âPlease Donât Tell Me Goodnightâ under the Big Tree Records/Atlantic imprint in 1975. In addition to their live shows, the group recorded a number of jingles for Burger King, and provided background vocals for acts as diverse as the Ramones.
In 1981, Kathie was invited to Nashville to provide backup vocals for a new project with Ed Bruce. The song, âMy First Taste of Texas,â became a BillBoard #1 hit single and gave Kathie her first taste of Nashville. Music City became their home later that same year, and both Kathie and Michael soon gained recognition as session singers and songwriters. They recorded background vocals on projects for Moe Brandy, Dan Seals, Lynn Anderson, Randy Travis and others. LeBeouf eventually joined the two in Nashville and, after a successful live audition, the trio was signed by RCA Records in 1985. âOh Heart,â the first single by Baillie and the Boys, became the groupâs first top ten hit and their trademark song. They followed with five more albums garnering a total of ten Top Ten country hits, many of which were co-written by Kathie. The critical and commercial success of the groupâs music earned Baillie and the Boys awards and nominations from the Country Music Association, the Academy of Country Music, and the TNN/Music City News Awards. In 1991, Kathie co-hosted the nationally televised Music City News Awards Show with legendary Nashville performers Ray Stevens and Jimmy Dean. For two consecutive seasons during the mid-1990s, Kathie was also a co-host and regular performer on The Nashville Networkâs Yesteryear show.
