My coworker mentioned that. I did not know who she was so he played a video of her singing.

Sounds like all the King's horses and all the King's men could never put her back together again.

From the daze when new country releases were still worth listening to. (I bought the Columbia 45 back in the 70's.)

I will never unlove her tallent.

hmmmmm.... that sounds to me like she was basically in congestive heart failure mode. she was only 67. I wonder what brought it on so early.

Wikipedia said she struggled with alcohol. She apparently had numerous traffic accidents while driving under the influence.

poor girl, I hope she is in 7th heaven now :) ironic that her big hit was "I never promised you a rose garden."

I think "rose garden" was the first song in my collection.
