One of the all-time Bubbles in the Think Tank faves, Skeeter Davis, passed away today from a many year battle with breast cancer. People have asked over the years just why some old country singer like Skeeter would be so loved by a silly show like BITTT. When you take the time to look back over her huge catalog (weâ€™ve got 24 albums and still donâ€™t have them all!), youâ€™ll find that Skeeter had a great sense of humor. She could laugh at a song or at herself, then follow it up with the most heart wrenching song youâ€™ve ever heard. Just a Kentucky girl like me, hearing Skeeterâ€™s voice always took me back to the only part I liked when I would spend those hot Sunday mornings in an Estill County church.
Take a look at some of her album covers below and youâ€™ll see why the JF and I always held up the pictures to the microphone when a Skeeter song would find its way in to any one of our many theme shows: cats, dogs, spring, and so many more. You can learn more about Skeeter and see other fabulous album covers at http://www.ronstadt-linda.com/skeeterdavis/index.html.
Be sure to tune in tonight for a special tribute to Skeeter, featuring some all time Think Tank classics. Maybe youâ€™ll even be lucky enough to have a link to them later in the week.
