I'm back after a little hiatus (SORRY!) with a Country Ladies special, as a sort of tribute to the recently departed Kitty Wells (who I may have referred to as Kitty Webb in the actual episode, thank you 3am). Featuring Dolly Parton (pictured), Jolie Holland, Emmylou Harris, Patsy Cline, The Dixie Chicks, Hazel Dickens & Alice Gerrard, Loretta Lynn, Gillian Welch, Neko Case and of course, Kitty Wells.
