Best known for his visual and vocal resemblance to Elvis Presley, Ronnie McDowell enjoyed a series of Top Ten hits during the first half of the ‘80s. He was born in 1950 and raised in the small town of Portland, TN. He started singing publicly while serving in the Navy in the Philippines. He hit big in 1977 with “The King Is Gone”, a tribute to Presley written immediately after the singer’s death. McDowell capitalized on the exposure to land another hit, “I Love You, I Love You, I Love You” in 1978. The following year he was tapped to sing the vocals for an Elvis movie starring Kurt Russell. Other hits by Ronnie include “Older Women”, “Wandering Eyes”, “Watchin’ Girls Go By”, “You Made a Wanted Man of Me”, “In a New York Minute” and “You’re Gonna Ruin My Bad Reputation”.
