    Ok, the women need a vote. Now let's not judge on looks or 'endowments', but talent and/or voice.

    There are a few that stand out in my memory from my childhood, so let's vote on those. Most are still alive and singing, but 2 have left us.

    Let's choose one of the 4 listed based on talent and/or voice.

    Let's see who wins this one. It will only run for 14 days from now, so vote and respond, too, if you want.

    Take care.
    Cheryl

    growing up in illinois and bein forced to watch grand ole opry , heehaw
    buck owens and porter wagoner and whatever else my dad liked to watch
    on sunday afternoons i was introduced to dolly partons voice but at the time didnt care to hear it.
    however after going to live at my grandparents house in arkansas listening to radio was about all i had as a form of music entertainment and i grew to appreciate loretta lynn , tammy wynette , dolly parton to name a few,and i guess dolly had a siren voice to my ears and i found her to be
    in my dreams singing to me :lol: :embarassed: :cool2: .
    seriously on more than one occasion she was in my dreams and her voice still makes me feel like i could go to sleep on a cloud when i hear her sing.
    sha also seems to be a genuinely nice person and for her age she sure looks great.
    by golly i pick dolly:tounge_out:

    I have to go with Dolly. To be consistently as good as she has been is amazing. She also has a wide range of singing styles. The other 3 are in a close second.

    You see they were and are all such great singers that it's too difficult for me to pick just one voice over the other. I finally found a country music station on the radio that plays country music from the 60's 70' and 80's. Now folks that was good country music then and in my book still is!:big_smile: :big_smile:

    I had to choose Patsy, just because... she was one of a kind.

    Dolly would be my second choice... just hearing her makes me smile :lol:

    Normally I'd hate to be repetitive, but NOT in this case.....my vote was cast for the ONE AND ONLY Miss Patsy Cline :cool2:!!! All good choices Cheryl (of course, wouldn't expect any less of ya :wink:). I would have to pick Loretta Lynn as #2 amongst the ones you mentioned :smile2:. When I first saw this thread before reading it, I didn't realize it was a poll; one "new" woman of country and one "historical" woman of country popped immediately into my head - the latter being Patsy, no doubt. There is NOBODY, never has been, never will be, who has her inimitable sound IMO. Although LeeAnn Rimes has been compared to her, and there are many Cline impersonators out there - I don't believe her unique tone and sincere style will ever be duplicated.

    I grew up on three of the the four, but I love them ALL. My mom's a true Coal Miner's Daughter!!! Here's my favs from all four:


    Walkin' After Midnight - Patsy
    Near You - Tammy (w/ George Jones)
    It's All Wrong, But It's Alright - Dolly
    Squaw's On The Warpath - Loretta


    I could definitely list more, but these mean the most to me. Great poll!!!

    I agree with this post. The mold was broken when patsy was born.A lot of people try to imitate her but totally fail. A major loss to country music when she got killed. She was a part of what real country was all about.

    I totally agree w/ Mickey about Patsy, not to mention Cowboy Copas, Hawkshaw Hawkins and the pilot of their aircraft. Although my wife and I weren't born yet, it's hard not to think about the day their plane went down, cause it's my wife's birthday (March 5).

    As I said in my previous post all of them were and/or are excellent singers. I listened to the song"I'm Crazy" from Pastsy Kline,the other night on my radio station that Praise God I found,and the first thought that popped into my mind after listening was"Such a beautiful fine voive,lots of talent,Why did she have to be killed in a plane crash?" Of course,I realize no one can answer that but God.I reckon it was just her time.I agree though my she could really sing!:sad2:

    Walking after Midnight - Patsy Cline


    I go out walking after midnight
    Out in the moonlight just like we used to do
    I'm always walking after midnight searching for you
    I walk for miles along the highway

    Well that's just my way of saying I love you
    I'm always walking after midnight searching for you
    I stopped to see a weeping willow
    Crying on his pillow maybe he's crying for me

    And as the skies turn gloomy
    Night blooms will whisper to me I'm lonesome as I can be
    I go out walking after midnight out in the moonlight
    Just hoping maybe you're somewhere walking after midnight searching for me

    I stopped to see a weeping willow
    Crying on his pillow maybe he's crying for me
    And as the skies turn gloomy
    Night blooms will whisper to me I'm lonesome as I can be

    I'm out walking after midnight out in the moonlight
    Just hoping maybe you're somewhere walking after midnight searching for me


    best song from patsy....and none of the other 3 came close, imho:smile2:

    Gotta go with Patsy. People that dont even listen to country know her songs.
