Rosemary Clooney

Born in Maysville, Rosemary Clooney topped the chart with “Come On-A My House” in 1951. Other hits include “This Ole House” and “Hey There.” Her first film, The Stars Are Singing, premiered at Maysville’s Russell Theater in 1953. She costarred with Bing Crosby in the 1954 classic film White Christmas.

Throughout a singing and acting career that spanned six decades, the acclaimed “girl singer” remained connected to her hometown. In 1999, “Rosie” launched the Rosemary Clooney Music Festival in Maysville, the site of her birth, marriage, and final resting place.
