Johnny Anthony started singing in clubs in Baltimore at 8 years old. The owner of Zebelon’s Lounge took Johnny under his wing and managed him for the next 10 years. Whitey Johnson was his name. During that time he took Johnny to Warrenton, VA to enter a singing contest, where Johnny took first place 2 years in a row at ages 12 & 13.
When Johnny turned 18 he traveled with the Grand Ole Opry on tour with Rudy Calicut who promoted the world’s biggest indoor country music show at the time with Kenny Rodgers headlining.
