Kitty Wells The Queen of Country Music

Het werd tijd om deze koningin te ontdekken. Via The Flying Burrito Brothers, Gram Parsons en Emmylou Harris kwam zij in beeld.

"Ellen Muriel Deason (30 August 1919 – 16 July 2012), known professionally as Kitty Wells, was an American pioneering female country music singer. She broke down a barrier to women in country music with her 1952 hit recording "It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels", which also made her the first female country singer to top the U.S. country charts and turned her into the first female country superstar. “It Wasn’t God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels” would also be her first of several pop crossover hits. Wells is the only artist to be awarded top female vocalist awards for 14 consecutive years. Her chart-topping hits continued until the mid 1960s, paving the way for and inspiring a long list of female country singers who came to prominence in the 1960s." Bron: Wikipedia
