Kitty Wells Joins Honky Tonk Angels

Her "It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels" in 1952 was the first No. 1 hit by a woman soloist on the country music charts and dashed the notion that women couldn't be headliners. Billboard magazine had been charting country singles for about eight years at that time.
Stolen whole.Of course, it was an answer song, to a number that deserved an answer.And two of our favorite hick tunes, written by Harlan Howard.

Popularity. Like Junior High. This is mostly because I'm curious. You should all be ashamed.
