8 August 1950, Toledo, Ohio, USA. The 90s country singer Jamie O’Hara had already enjoyed a certain amount of success with the O’Kanes with Kieran Kane when the duo split up in 1989. Prior to that he had been a halfback footballer, but had to retire following a knee injury. He went to Nashville and became a writer for Tree Publishing. O’Hara wrote ‘Wandering Eyes’ and ‘Older Women’ for Ronnie McDowell and ‘For Reasons I’ve Forgotten’ for Trisha Yearwood. His own version was included on his 1994 debut Rise Above It, which was produced by Garth Fundis. The album also included ‘50, 000 Names’, a song about the wall in Washington listing those who died in Vietnam.

O’Hara subsequently concentrated on writing material for other artists, including Shelby Lynne and Gary Allan, but returned to the studio in the new millennium to record the excellent Beautiful Obsession.
