Johnny McCullah came to The Villages from Ohio several years ago.
He never dreamed he’d be a singer.
Here in The Villages, he started a lawn care business.
And then about four years ago, he auditioned at “Villagers Got Talent ” at Katie Belle’s. He did well. Much better than he thought, he’d do.
And that’s when Villages legend Tony D stepped in with a word of encouragement. It made all the difference.
The lawn care business has been sold. Johnny McCullah is – officially – a full-time singer.
“He never even sang in the shower. This came out of nowhere,” said wife Teresa. Johnny still jokingly calls himself “shaky.” If he held a microphone, sometimes his hands would shake. So he uses a headset. Problem solved. He has developed a loyal following in The Villages.
“The whole family is so nice,” said fan Nancy Dodge of the Village of Rio Grande. “He’s an A-1 person.”
Johnny can certainly coax women — and men — out onto the dance floor. A little bit of Conway. A little bit of Billy Ray Cyrus. And a healthy dose of Elvis.
The Villages has become the great city of re-invention. And Johnny McCullah is celebrating every minute of it.
