Description

Miss Kitty Wells sings her big 1952 #1 hit 'It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels' at the Grand Ole Opry. The songwriter was Jimmy D. Miller.

Kitty Wells, the groundbreaking country music star known as the "Queen of Country", has passed away at age 92, the Associated Press reports. She died Monday after complications from a stroke.

Kitty Wells was born Muriel Ellen Deason in Nashville. She got her start performing in the late 1930s with the duo Johnnie & Jack, which featured her husband, Johnnie Wright. It wasn't until she was 33 years old that she scored her first big hit: 1952's "It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels", a response song to Hank Thompson's "The Wild Side of Life", which contained the lyric "I didn't know God made honky tonk angels." It became the first number one country music chart hit by a solo woman.

Throughout the 50s, 60s, and 70s, Wells scored 35 top 10 hits, and starred in her own TV show. She was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1976 and received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 1991.
