My Kind of Country

Country music from a fan's point of view since 2008

Happy birthday, Kitty Wells!

My Kind of Country salutes the Queen of Country Music on her 90th birthday. Kitty Wells was the first female artist to have a #1 country hit back in 1952 with “It Wasn’t God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels” and in doing so paved the way for other women such as Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, and Tammy Wynette.   In 1956 she became the first female country artist to release an LP with Kitty Wells’ Country Hit Parade.  She was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1976.  We wish her continued health and happiness and thank her for her invaluable contributions to this genre that we all love.
