A “Cowboy’s Sweetheart”: Kathy Dell’s Musical Career in the Crossroads Region of South
The Center for Texas Music History
The history of American country music is often thought of in terms of its many stars. But for every performer who has made it big in Nashville, New York, or Hollywood, there are many other singers, songwriters, and musicians with equal or even greater talent who never became famous but who had the same dedication, commitment, and desire to entertain as their better-known colleagues. The role of these less-well-known artists in the nation's musical history is as worthy of documentation as any, since they are perhaps the real heartbeat of the music.
