Illinois Country Live at Home - John and Julie Pennell


In this installment of “Illinois Country: Live at Home,” songwriters John and Julie Pennell perform "Your Body Never Forgets," a song they co-wrote for their upcoming album. Both John and Julie were featured throughout Illinois Country – Illinois Public Media’s one-long documentary exploring Illinois’ role in the history of country music.

This spin-off series from WILL-TV showcases country artists with Illinois roots performing their songs—for now, from the safety of their homes as we shelter in place. Many of these artists may appear at a later date in front of a live studio audience on "Illinois Country Live!" from WILL-TV. 

John and Julie Pennell’s new album, called "Keep on Walkin,” debuts June 6, 2020. Visit their website for more information,
