Fred Stobaugh did not expect to become a star at the age of 96, but after penning a song to his late wife Lorraine and submitting it to Green Shoe Studio in a singer/songwriter contest, he did just that.
The team at Green Shoe Studio announced on Sept. 16 that "Sweet Lorraine" songwriter Fred Stobaugh will appear on “The View” Thursday, Sept. 19 and on “Fox and Friends” on Friday, Sept. 20 to talk about the song and video “Sweet Lorraine” created from lyrics.
The lyrics of "Sweet Lorraine" inspired Green Shoe Studio to create a song and video after Fred entered an online their singer/songwriter contest earlier this summer. The song was such a hit that Fred Stobaugh has become the oldest songwriter to chart a hit on the Billboard Hot 100.
Fred and Lorraine met in 1938 and were married two years later. After Lorraine passed away earlier this year, Fred wrote the “Sweet Lorraine” one night and says the song “just come right to me” and the song “just fit her.”
Fred Stobaugh decided to send the song to Green Shoe Studio via mail after seeing an ad in the newspaper. From the start the lyrics to the song touched the hearts of the Green Shoe Studio team. They took the lyrics and turned them into song recorded by professional musicians.
Find out more about Fred and Lorraine Stoboaugh’s amazing love story and the song that led Fred to become a hit songwriter at the age of 96 when he appears on “The View” Sept. 19 and “Fox and Friends” Sept. 20 or visit the Green Shoe Studio YouTube channel.
