Über Crystal Gayle
Crystal Gayle is best known for the wonderful 1977 hit, "Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue." That song helped her get out from under the shadow of older sister Loretta Lynn, and it defines the slick Country Pop sound that was often a recipe for crossover success in the '70s. Since then, she's veered more and more into straight-up New Country territory. Her most recent material features country ballads and spirituals with snap-tight hoedown backup and her trademark sweeping, almost operatic vocals. In 1982 Crystal Gale and Tom Waits recorded a phenomenal soundtrack for Francis Ford Coppola's film "One From the Heart."
