Happy 55th Birthday Patty Loveless
Another country star celebrates a birthday during the “Frog Days of Winter”, 2012. Today, singer Patty Loveless is 55 years old, and we’re featuring Patty’s number one hit back in 1989…”Timber, I’m Falling In Love” on our “Country Classic Double” at 11:30 a.m.
Now, here’s a brief bio, courtesy of wikipedia:
“Patty Loveless (born Patty Lee Ramey, January 4, 1957), is an American country music singer.
Since her emergence on the country music scene in late 1986 with her first (self-titled) album, Loveless has been one of the most popular female singers of the Neotraditional country movement, although she has also recorded albums in the Country pop and Bluegrass genres.
Loveless was born in Pikeville, Kentucky, and was raised in Elkhorn City, Kentucky and Louisville, Kentucky and rose to stardom thanks to her blend of honky tonk and country-rock, not to mention a plaintive, emotional ballad style. Her late-1980s records were generally quite popular, earning her comparisons to Patsy Cline, but most critics agreed that she truly came into her own as an artist in the early 1990s.”
