Country Queen Kitty Wells Dies at 92
The original queen of country music, Kitty Wells is being remembered as an artist who defined the role of women in country music following her death.
FOX News Radio’s Sabrina Sabbagh reports:
(“It Wasn’t God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels”) “It wasn’t God…”
Kitty Wells died in Nashville, where it all began, where she launched into a boys-only club and defined the role of women in modern country music. Her first number one song hit radio in 1952 – “It Wasn’t God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels” reached the #1 spot at the time.
Wells had a string of popular singles in the 50′s – where she was competing against men – then, she was up against fellow female singers like Patsy Cline and Loretta Lynn in the late ’50′s and early ’60′s. Wells continued to tour until her retirement in 2000.
She was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1976 and given a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Recording Academy in ’91. She was 92.
