NASHVILLE (Reuters) - Kitty Wells, the "Queen of Country Music," died this morning at her home in Nashville surrounded by family members, of complications from a stroke. She was 92.

Among those mourning her today was Loretta Lynn, whose own rise to popularity came after Wells opened the doors for strong female voices in country music. "Kitty Wells will always be the greatest female country singer of all times," said Lynn in a statement released on her web site.

"She was my hero. If I had never heard of Kitty Wells, I don't think I would have been a singer myself. I wanted to sound just like her, but as far as I am concerned, no one will ever be as great as Kitty Wells.

"She truly is the Queen of Country Music."

Wells, born as Ellen Muriel Deason Wright, actually began performing on local radio in Nashville, but her ascent to stage stardom began in 1937 with husband Johnnie, half of the duo Johnnie & Jack. He died in 2011.

She was the first female singer to reach the top of the country charts with her 1952 song "It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels," an answer to Hank Thompson's "The Wild Side of Life," which made the argument God indeed makes such angels.

Wells was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1976.



Thats one of my Favorite Kitty Wells songs, She was truly a Great singer Rest in Peace Kitty, My thoughts and prayers are with her family

I am sorry to hear of her passing.

I got in trouble once late one night. I had been put to bed, probably age 10, when I said in the dark "Kitty Wells". My Grandmother yelled, she was so frightened. She expected me to be asleep already. She asked me why on earth had I said that. I said " I like that name, one of these days I want a horse named Kitty Wells."
" Ginger, go to sleep!" was all my grandmother said. cowboyR

I Bought a Biography of Kitty Wells in a Thrift Store today. Once i got home i noticed it was a Signed book by Kitty Wells and Johnny Wright (Her husband also a singer) Its been done with a marker so its not just a copy of their signature but there is the possibility that they are fake signatures But i am pretty impressed none the less.Smile
