Jenny Lou Carson-200

December 16, 2017

16th December – remembering feisty country music singer-songwriter Jenny Lou Carson, (January 13, 1915–December 16, 1978, born Virginia Lucille Overstake).  She was the first woman to write a No. 1 country music hit (Jealous Heart)  and was one of the most prolific songwriters in country music, other classics included Let Me Go Lover, A Penny For Your Thoughts and I’d Trade All My tomorrows. Also had a good country voice, achieving wide popularity popular in the war years with songs aimed at servicemen (hence the “Radio Chin Up Girl” sobriquet) and later as featured vocalist with several top groups. The Country Music Archive have compiled this selection, nice selection reflecting her great voice and versatility.
