Mel McDaniel

Melvin Huston McDaniel (September 6, 1942 – March 31, 2011) was an American country music artist. Several of his top hits were released in the 1980s, including “Louisiana Saturday Night”, “Big Ole Brew”, “Stand Up”, “Baby’s Got Her Blue Jeans On”, that last of which reached number one on the country chart.

It is said that he was inspired to play music after seeing Elvis Presley on television. His first interest in music was when he learned the trumpet in the fourth grade, and later, the guitar. At age 14, he taught himself to play “Frankie and Johnny” and performed at a high-school talent contest. He played in several local bands, and after graduation, began working as a musician in clubs. It was during this time that wrote and produced his first single, “Lazy Me”.

Mel McDaniel signed to Capitol Records in 1976 and released his first single, “Have a Dream on Me”, but his career finally took off with “Louisiana Saturday Night” in 1981. In early 1985 he scored his only number one hit with “Baby’s Got Her Blue Jeans On”
