Queen of Country Music Kitty Wells Dies
Wells broke all the rules in 1952 when her hit song, "It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels" saw her become the first female country singer to have a U.S. #1.
The Tennessean reported that country singer Lee Ann Womack said: "She paved the way for generations after her and really made a mark for women in country. It's a tough business for women. She proved that she could sell records and tickets and have hits in a time when that hadn't been proven yet by female acts." more on this story
