    It’s hard top believe now, but for a few years Donna Fargo was the biggest thing going. Her two biggest hits (“Happiest Girl In The Whole USA” – #11 pop ; and “Funny Face” – #5 pop) were bigger than any two hits by any other female country singer in the early & mid-1970s, and only Lynn Anderson’s “Rose Garden” (#3 – pop) was a bigger pop hit than “Funny Face” Before being diagnosed with a slower form of multiple sclerosis, Donna Fargo managed 8 pop hits, 6 #1 country records and two songs that stalled out at #2) and six more country top tens

    The 2017 entries are proof that country radio has lost its mind completely and that their audience is not a country audience

    I love listening to Donna Fargo and I agree with you regarding today’s country music, it’s not what I’d call country music at all.
