Queen Kitty Wells Passes
Kitty Wells, the first female superstar of country music, has died. Her family says the 92-year-old Wells died yesterday at home after complications from a stroke. Wells took “It Wasn’t God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels” to the top of the country chart in 1952 — the first woman soloist to hit that mark. Wells recorded about 50 albums, had 25 Top 10 country hits and toured from the late 1930s until she quit the road in 2000.
