I’m now in a new year for me, and your still in my furniture, with 1953 Births And Deaths. This time is different than before, I’m doing three new performers, on my website, but one of my favorite performers died this year, and that’s a first for my website.

Crystal Gayle Part Three

Have you ever wondered what she’s doing since the 1980’s, well you don’t have to wonder any longer, for it’s right here in Crystal Gayle Part Three

1990 Present: Later Career


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. Gayle subsequently recorded numerous specialty projects. She released two gospel albums Someday (1995) as well as He Is Beautiful (1997 ). In 1999, she released the tribute album, Crystal Gayle Sings the Heart and

Crystal Gayle Part Two

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...

Juice Newton Part Two

Juice Newton Part Two

Juice Newton Part Two

She was my very first Country and Western singer and performer (she writes music, so she’s not just some singer with a pretty face, that you see now a-days), and I have all of her albums on vinyl, and now, I’m doing Juice Newton Part Two.

From Pop To Country

Newton had constantly been reasonably popular in country music; she replied to her subsiding popularity in the pop market by targeting her next album, 1985‘s Old Flame, entirely to country audiences. The strategic move  was a success; the album renewed her career, reached No. 12 on the Billboard album chart and included six Top-10 country hits, including the No. 1s You Make Me Want to Make You Mine, Hurt, as well as Both to Each Other (Friends and Lovers)

Films Of 1952

Three good Films Of 1952, which I’ll watch later tonight, but not much else that I would watch, even though some of the people that I typed about, are in them, the movies themselves aren’t that memorable or worth watching. Hollywood was just throwing in singers and actors, but not throwing in story, but their learn their mistake when the younger generation become teenagers, but that’s not not going to happen until 1955.

  • Aaron Slick from Punkin Crick starring Alan Young, Dinah Shore, Robert Merrill and Adele Jergens. Directed by Claude Binyon.
  • Affair in Trinidad starring Rita Hayworth and Glenn Ford
  • April in Paris starring Doris Day and Ray Bolger

Juice Newton Part One

She’s the only one, that I like, who was born in 1952, which this year will be short, however, Juice Newton Part One, will be sweet.

Judy Kay Juice Newton (birthed February 18, 1952) is an American pop and also country (which I think she invented Country Pop, because her hit songs is on both categories at the same time), singer, songwriter, and also musician. As of this date, Newton has received five Grammy Award nominations in the Pop and Country  Best Female Singer categories  winning once in 1983  along with an ACM Award for Top New Female Artist and two Billboard Female Album Musician of the Year awards (won back to back). Newton‘s various other awards consist of a People‘s Choice Award for Best...

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...
