Kitty Wells' 100th Birthday

Today (August 30, 2019) would have been American Country trailblazer Kitty Wells' 100th birthday. She was the first female country singer to top the US country charts. Click here for her Wikipedia bio.

We asked a few local artists for their thoughts on the legendary songstress.

Lori Yates
Kitty Wells was the first female country singer to have a million selling number #1 hit. A true maverick, she paved the way for the rest of us.
Ginger St. James
The first lady of many things. From being the first female topping the billboard charts to the first female to headline a tour. This pioneer blazed a trail bright and hot enough for generations of songwriters to feel the impact and see her fire that still burns to this day.
