Remembering Kitty Wells [VIDEO]

Kitty Wells passed away Monday at the age of 92 after complications from a stroke. Kitty was heralded as the “Queen of Country Music” for many years after becoming the first solo female artist to land a song at #1 on the country music charts.

 

Her real name was Ellen Muriel Deason. She was the first female country artist to release a full-length studio album in 1956. Between 1952 and 1965 she scored 33 top 10 singles.

In 1976 she was elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame and in 1991 received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.

Her success influenced countless other female artists including Loretta Lynn,
