I forgot, until I rediscovered them just recently, how much I enjoyed these talented female country artists - listening to these songs took my right back to my childhood and the country music I grew up enjoying on shows like the Grand Ole Opry, Crook & Chase, Hee Haw and Nashville Now with Ralph Emery. Ah, memories!
So here are a few of my favorites for you to enjoy:
Patty Loveless -" I Try to Think About Elvis"
Mary Chapin Carpenter - "Down at the Twist and Shout" (I also LOVE "I Feel Lucky" but couldn't find a good video of it).
Tanya Tucker - "Two Sparrows in a Hurricane"
Suzy Bogguss - "Drive South" (I also highly recommend "Someday Soon" "Aces" "Outbound Plane" and "Letting Go" - have a hankie ready for that one, it always makes me cry)
Pam Tillis - "Maybe it was Memphis"
Reba McEntire - "Fancy"
Trisha Yearwood - "She's in Love with the Boy"
Patty Loveless "Blame it on Your..." (I know, another Patty Loveless but I LOVE this song, if I ever get the guts to do karaoke by myself this is one of my go-to songs)
So - what are some of your favorite songs from the country ladies of this era?
