Crystal Gayle: Nobody’s Angel 1988
Born January 9, 1951, in Paintsville, Kentucky, Crystal Gayle moved with her family to Wabash, Indiana, when she was still quite young. Her music career was given a big boost by her older sister, country superstar Loretta Lynn. Loretta thought that Crystal’s real name of Brenda Gail Webb was not quite “classy” enough, and after noticing a sign for the Krystal restaurant chain, she changed the “K” to a “C” and her sister became Crystal Gayle. She recorded her first hit song, “I’ve Cried the Blue (Right Out of My Eyes)”, in 1970, which peaked at #23. In 1974 she signed with United Artists Records and producer Allen Reynolds. Over the next two years she released three albums and had several hit songs, including “This Is My Year for Mexico”, “I’ll Do It All Over Again”, “Wrong Road Again” and “I’ll Get Over You”, her first #1. The next year, 1977, would prove to be a landmark year for her, with the release of her album “We Must Believe in Magic” and the worldwide smash hit, “Don’t It Make My Brown Eyes Blue”, which–along with her almost floor-length hair–made her a household name.
