Who Was the First Female Artist to Have a Number One Country Hit? [VIDEO]
Music history happened on this date back in 1952. This was the first time that a solo female artist hit number one on the country music charts. It was 66 years ago today that the country classic "It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels" by Kitty Wells was on top of the charts and kicked open the doors for female artists. Kitty does not get enough credit for being the pioneer that she was.
I can remember Miss Wells playing at the old Cow Palace when that was still around here in Northern Colorado. Thanks for breaking down the barrier Kitty. Here is that history making single.
