GAYLE Earline: Traditional Sugar

Gayla Earline is announced as a gospel singer (or christian country music) has successfully focused its

career in this style. She would have turned with Carl Perkins, Willie Nelson or Hank Thompson would

have done the first part of Concert by Gene Watson, Collin Raye and would have occurred at the Grand

Ol! Opry. Is probably true, anyway here is his first album of country not religious and c! is a success! It

is enrtegistré and produced by his Gene Crain husband who also accompanies the pedal steel guitar

the bass, rhythm guitar and backing vocals. But there has room for Larry Franklin fiddle or for a

drummer, a guitarist and pianist. The first title clearly announces the color


They Were Right by Gayla compound is a pure honky-tonk to old as we recorded long ago in

Nashville and as it does even in Texas. Gayla resumed in the genus classical Pick Me Up On Your Way

Down (1958), Country Town is a honky-tonk rapid compound in respect of tradition.

Leavin! And Savin! Goodbye was a Top 10 for Faron Young 1971. Touch My Heart, composed by

Johnny Paycheck was a good success for Ray Price in 1966. From classic country well. In the same

style you are entitled to recovery of Am I That Easy To Forget Carl Belew (1959). Hold Me Darlin!

could be a resumption of 60! S but is Gayla l! author. Once A Day was a No. 1 for Conny Smith (later

Mrs. Marty Stuart) in 1964. Add yet Kaw Liga by Hank Williams and I Love You A Thousand Ways by

Lefty Frizzell (1951) of which there are versions moultes (Willie Nelson, John Anderson, etc..). And it

gets better: Gayla Earline is very strong by calling Wherever a western swing larger than

life,Traditional and Sugar for the fi nal, a western swing close rock and roll. Fi nally a third western

swing (too bad George Strait does not read this) is another that An incisive Right Or Wrong

resumption of which was No. 1 in 1984 when George he could still make this style of music. If you

agree readily that the guitars are replaced as a tool main by the pedal steel guitar and the fi ddle, and if

country music such that "it is practiced in the 50's or 60's your cup of tea, then this will be your album

of the year. (JD)

PS: But what makes me the most is first to have (perhaps) discovered Gayla Earline Bernard Boyat

before ...
