Gayle released two more studio albums throughout the 1990s: Ain’t Gonna Worry (1990) produced by Allen Reynolds and also Three Good Reasons (1992) Both albums failed to chart and also their singles all failed to reestablish Gayle at country radio, which by this point had actually abandoned older musicians of all kinds.

I’m ready to begin Crystal Gayle Part Two, because I have a new album that I believe you will like to listen to. Also I found new information about her, which is more important.

1977 1989: Crossover

Believing Gayle was positioned for a larger breakthrough, Reynolds urged her to record the jazz-flavored ballad, Don’t It Make My Brown Eyes Blue. The song ended up being the most successful of Gayle‘s career, spending four weeks atop the country chart. The song reached Number 1 on the Cashbox Top 100 Singles pop chart, became her greatest hit on the Billboard Hot 100 (No. 2), peaked at No. 4 AC as well as gained considerable airplay worldwide. Gayle earned a Grammy Award for Best Female Country Vocal Performance...

John Mellencamp Part One

I’m doing someone new to my website, and from the title. John Mellencamp Part One, I think you know who it is.

John Mellencamp

John J. Mellencamp born October 7, 1951), formerly known as Johnny Cougar, John Cougar, and also John Cougar Mellencamp, is an American musician, singer-songwriter, painter, and also actor. He is recognized for his catchy, populist brand of heartland rock, which  stresses traditional instrumentation. Mellencamp rose to fame in the 1980s while developing an almost startlingly plainspoken writing style that, beginning in 1982, generated a string of Top 10 singles, including Hurts So Good, Jack & Diane, Crumblin Down, Pink Houses, Lonely Ol’Night, Small Town, R.O.C.K. in t...

Musical Films Of 1951

Musical Films Of 1951

Musical Films Of 1951

The only reason why I do a post of movies, is for the music (and I might have an album of a particular film), so that’s why I’m doing Musical Films Of 1951. however the 1950’s movies aren’t like the 1940’s. It’s for, the TV Shows. People stayed home and something which is free entertainment, then to go out and buy a ticket, popcorn, soda, and a parking lot. Besides, with everything, people tend to get bored of the same thing. Hollywood studios had competition, again. first with Radio Shows, the movie industry put sound in their movies, and won that battle, as well as having contracts with actors for several years and in their contracts, they couldn’t go on broadcast, which means Radio and TV.

I’ve completed my Three Part blog with this one called Luther Vandross Part Three. I hope you enjoy it and come back again, and read the other two Parts.

Personal Life

Vandross never married and had no children. His older siblings all predeceased him.
Vandross‘s sexual orientation was a subject of media speculation.

According to Gene Davis, a television producer who worked with Vandross, Everybody in the business knew that Luther was gay. In 2006, Bruce Vilanch, a friend and colleague of Vandross, told Out magazine, He said to me, No one knows I‘m in the life.
