I posted an In The Spotlight tribute to her back in 2009 (Click here), but in further tribute to the late, great Queen of Country Music, Kitty Wells, I am posting below two more songs from her classic 1962 Decca Records Christmas album, Christmas Day With Kitty Wells.

Kitty's grandson, Junior Sturdivant, with whom I am acquainted, told me that his grandmother was never quite the same after her husband of 73 years, singer-songwriter Johnnie Wright, died last September. Alas, Kitty is now at peace with her beloved Johnnie. Junior told me it was a lovely funeral and that Ricky Skaggs, among others, sang at the ceremony.

Yet another legend is now gone.

In my 2009 In The Spotlight tribute, I posted 2 of the 4 great original songs from Kitty's 1962 Christmas album: Ole Kris Kringle and Santa's On His Way. Here now in this remembrance post are the other 2 of these great originalsDasher With The Light Upon His Tail and Christmas Ain't Like Christmas Anymore. Enjoy…

Thanks Chip,

Another great voice silenced forever but at least we still have her music to listen to and remember her by.
