The death has been announced of the American Queen of Country, Kitty Wells.
The hit that brought her to the big time in the 1950s was It Wasn’t God Who Made Hony Tonk Angels, which is just one hell of a song title. The song itself was a reply a song by Hank Thompson, Wild Side of Life, and in her rebuke she attacked the view that it was women who are t blame for affairs and marriage breakdowns. Her song was banned, but hit a chord.
