Satisfied Mind recorded in 1955 was the first solo of many hits to follow over the years For Jean. Her first charting single was a duo recorded with Ferlin Husky in 1953 called "A Dear John Letter" a country music classic. In 1960 she married Country performer Hawkshaw Hawkins who was killed three years later in the plane crash that also killed Patsy Cline, Cowboy Copas and Randy Hughes the pilot. She later married country music musician and singer Benny Birchfield and they remain married.
Truly a great country music performer, she still performs to this day.
