RIP Kitty Wells 1st lady of Country Music

Loretta Lynn says...
"Kitty Wells was my hero," Lynn said Monday in a statement. "If I had never heard Kitty Wells sing, I don't think I would have been a singer myself."

"The stern resolution in her voice would be echoed in subsequent recordings by Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Tammy Wynette, Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris on through Shania Twain and the Dixie Chicksand still ripples today in assertive songs by Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood."
