country stars

 

Lucinda followed in her Father’s footsteps through poetry,

George Jones drank too much, Tammy Wynette forgave too much.

Loretta Lynn the coal miner’s daughter was given orange drapes by Patsy Cline. And her Conway Twitty’s real name was Harold Jenkins.

I wonder if Peggy Lee asked Is that all there is? at that final moment.

Emmylou met Gram Parsons waiting tables in a DC bar.
