‘The Brady Bunch’ Actress Maureen McCormick Previously Spoke About Her Music Career
During a 1995 interview with Entertainment Weekly, The Brady Bunch star Maureen McCormick spoke about her music career and her country album When You Get A little Lonely.
“I can just hear Jan, ‘Marcia, Marcia, Marcia! She has everything. The groovy guys, the debate club awards, the cool swingy hair, and now this!’” McCormick declared about her The Brady Bunch sister.
Speaking about the album, The Brady Bunch actress explained that she actually was contacted by a recording company 20 years prior to the album’s release. “I was offered a country recording contract, but turned it down to go to UCLA. I was always sorry.
The Brady Bunch star notably made her public singing debut in the Brady band. “We weren’t the Partridge Family!” McCormick admitted. She also said her life was not like her character’s. “I couldn’t even get a date to the prom. [My husband] Michael had never seen the show when we met. It was great. No preconceptions.”
Also speaking about how Rosie O’Donnell contributed to her landing a role on the Broadway production of Grease, The Brady Bunch icon stated, “She is, hands down, my biggest fan. We had the same singing teacher and ran into each other. She was, ‘Oh, my gosh! Marcia Brady!’”
McCormick stated that O’Donnell actually recommended her to replace the comedy as Rizzo. As thanks, McCormick gave O’Donnell her Cindy Brady’s Kitty Carry-All doll. “Rosie went out of her mind.”
In regards to any music gigs on her schedule, McCormick added, “Susan Olsen [Cindy] and Chris Knight [Peter] are both getting married this summer. Maybe I’ll get to do a little number.”
