In the hallowed halls of country music greats, no one stands more regal nor wears a crown with more worldly grace than the undisputed "Queen Of Country Music"-Kitty Wells.
Kitty's accession to her queenly throne of country music dates from 1952, for it was in that year that she recorded It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels. Almost overnight her Decca recording soared to the top with sales of over one million copies and skyrocketed this heretofore virtually unknown entertainer into a role of stardom, and widespread recognition as "Queen Of Country Music"—a role and title that have gone unchallenged for more than a decade and made her a legend in her own time.
Compiling this collection of KITTY WELLS' GREATEST HITS was no easy task, for her recording successes through the years have filled many albums. Her records are heard and loved wherever country fans congregate, for they so well tell the story of this truly wonderful woman and artist who has won every award and accolade her loyal subjects can bestow. And yet, despite her tremendous success Kitty Wells is, in the words of Tennessee's former Governor Frank Clement, "an outstanding wife and mother, in keeping with the traditions of Southern womanhood."
Through the years. Kitty has given the world many great songs, as this collection of some of her greatest hits confirms. Her many Decca albums and singles are a true "hit parade" of the country music story. And with the re-•tease of KITTY WELLS' GREATEST HITS, another chapter is unfolded as the "Queen Of Country Music" continues to reign supreme.
