It's called "Story Songs," Tony Award winner and Grammy nominee Betty Buckley's 17th solo album and it features songs that tell a story. The Texas native has quite a few of her own to tell, from raising cutting horses to recording her first album with T Bone Burnett when the two were teenagers growing up in Fort Worth. Then, there was her stint as Abby Bradford on the hit TV show "Eight Is Enough" and what she considers the highlight of her stellar career, performing what is still her signature song "Memory," as Broadway's original Grizabella, the Glamour Cat in the hit musical "CATS."
FOX's Jane Metzler talks with Buckley about playing a TV stepmom (in her twenties!) on "Eight is Enough" after the death of actress Diana Hyland. She's had memorable roles in numerous movies, from the Oscar-winning "Tender Mercies" to this year's M. Night Shyamalan hit thriller "Split." But there was one award-winning role that got away. Buckley explains. She also discusses her new album and what some might consider a few unusual song choices... Radiohead???
