Finding Her Voice: Kitty Wells Panel at the Country Music Hall of Fame 

Sister Act

Sister Act
With Taylor Swift ruling the charts and taking a fairytale castle on tour, it's easy to forget that there was a time before country music had a woman's touch. The Kitty Wells exhibit drives the point home by paying tribute to country's first female superstar, who dared to record a comeback to Hank Thompson's song about wayward women. This panel discussion--Wells' last appearance before the exhibit closes--will look at what she helped put in motion. Joining her are three singers and songwriters who know a thing or two about women's influence on country music: Carlene Carter, Karen Staley and Chely Wright. Moderators Mary Bufwack and Robert K. Oermann are no slouches in that department either; they wrote the definitive 600-page book on the subject.
