This summer marks the anniversary date of the death of the Queen of Country Music...Kitty Wells. she was 92 years old. A marvelous voice that reminds me of Emmylou Harris but of course, she was before her and in fact was well before even Loretta Lynn. I remember seeing her on TV and hearing her on radio in the 50's and 60's.
I can't recall where I was or why I was there but as a kid about 12 years old I found myself in someone's house and remember being in a room for some hours with a record player and lots of LP's. I ran across one that had her picture on the front and decided to play it. I was enthralled at her voice and played if over and over. Not a flashy woman but a gentle, kind and humble sort of singer that had a career span over decades.
Most will not remember Kitty or even have heard of her. I never was that crazy about most country music but there was something about Kitty Wells I enjoyed watching and listening to her. May this fine lady rest in peace.

Yeah, she was real country. Gosh, she was just sensational. She is not for everybody today as her nasally voice would be too rustic for those who grew up listening to the generic voiced talkings heads of TV.
But if you ever want to hear country music then listen to Kitty Wells. If you want pop music then turn on today's female country singers. Are they talented? Yes. Are they country? Not a chance.
