    "It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels":

    Fewer than 3 minutes of music, but without them, no Patsy Cline and no Loretta Lynn, and Lord knows who else we would have missed.

    Along with "Your Cheatin' Heart" and "Crazy", surely one of the top ten all-time greatest country songs!

    Yes, that was true Country Music as opposed to the so-called Country Music today which is only Rock and Roll sung in a nasal tone.

    She will be missed!

    I am a music lover and will pretty much listen to it all. My husband tells me all the time that he could randomly pick a station over and over again and every time I would be singing the song.

    But I must agree with what has already been said here, THAT was real country music!

    You have NO IDEA how much I LOVE this post!

    I am a huge Lorretta fan and I know without Kitty, Loretta would be an unknown.

    This is from Loretta's site:

    Loretta Remembers Kitty Wells

    Kitty Wells will always be the greatest female country singer of all times. She was my hero. If I had never heard of Kitty Wells, I don’t think I would have been a singer myself. I wanted to sound just like her, but as far as I am concerned, no one will ever be as great as Kitty Wells. She truly is the Queen of Country Music.

    Here is a great picture of Crystal, Kitty, and Loretta
