Kitty Wells’ 1955 Performance Of ‘Making Believe’ Caught On Tape

The Queen of Country Music will ignite your passion for classic country twang with this amazing performance.

A pioneer of female country music, Kitty Wells successfully broke down the female barrier for country music when she released “It Wasn’t God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels” in 1952.

According to Billboard, Wells is one of the top ten most successful female country vocalists and is the third country artists to receive the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. Prior to Wells’ successes, record companies were widely reluctant to publish albums by female country artists.

Released in 1955, “Making Believe” raced to the top of the country music charts and has become a staple in the classic country genre. It consistently ranks on the lists of greatest country songs and has been covered by a growing list of artists including an awe-inspiring duet by Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty.
