The Original Country Gold With Rowdy Yates Features Girl Power in Country This Weekend
If you have a favorite country song, or two, that you haven’t heard in awhile, chances are that Rowdy Yates has it and will play it for you weekends on The Original Country Gold with Rowdy Yates, Saturday nights from 7 to midnight and Sunday mornings from 6-11.
This week Rowdy will shine the spotlight on one of the many talented female artists who gave rise to girl power in country music in the Seventies. Crystal Gayle had 20 number one hits and six gold albums during the Seventies and the Eighties. She also made history by being the first female country artist to have a platinum album, her 1977 album 'We Must Believe in Magic" achieving that milestone. Throughout her career, she received 4 ACM awards, 4 American Music awards, 2 CMA awards, and 1 Grammy. Crystal is also Loretta Lynn's sister and is famous for her almost floor-length long hair.
Her voice is beautiful and she is always so elegant. I heard her songs over and over while I was growing up because at least one of my uncles had a major crush on her. Here's just a few of her hits you can hear this weekend with Rowdy Yates.
This is probably one of her best known songs, released in 1977, it went on to become #1 on the country and pop charts and earned her a Grammy. 'Don't it Make my Brown Eyes Blue'.
From 1981, title track of 'When I Dream'.
Another of her #1 songs, 'Talking in Your Sleep'
Don't miss The Original Country Gold with Rowdy Yates Saturday night starting at 7 pm and again on Sunday morning beginning at 6 on 94.3/97.3 The Wolf.
