NASHVILLE, TN. ( - Leon Seiter (cider) was inducted in to America's Old Time Country Music Hall of Fame this month in Missouri Valley, IA. The induction ceremony was held at the 29th National Old Time Country Music Festival.

Leon has been singing in honky-tonks since the early 60's. This traditional country artist began receiving national attention in country music circles when his record, Sentenced to Live, received national airplay in the United States, Canada, Germany, and France. Leon has since had five nationally charting singles, including "You Can Always Count on Me", "Love Is Just a Game", and "Under You Spell Again" from his current album, In the Shadows of a Honky Tonk.

Leon has had the pleasure of opening major concert tours across the nation with several top entertainers in the world of country music, such as George Jones, Hank Williams Jr., Porter Wagoner, Tanya Tucker, Tom T. Hall, Tammy Wynette, Mel Tillis, Loretta Lynn, Little Jimmy Dickens, and Tex Ritter. Citing Hank Williams, Ernest Tubb, Marty Robbins, and Johnny Cash as his inspirations, Leon's songs of pain, sorrow, love, and country life are a refreshing addition to the country pop artists on today's country radio.

Leon's wit and charm has landed him on countless television and radio talk shows, including The Ralph Emery Show. It also aided in his induction in to the Michigan Country Music Hall of Fame in June of 2000.
For more information or a copy of the induction certificate, contact Laura at An MP3 of his current single, Where True Love Waits For Me, is also available.
