R.I.P. Lynn Anderson

Gone at 67. Never one of my real favorites. Seemed too much like Lawrence of Welch’s idea of a country singer. Turned me on to Joe South, though. Also, had even cooler and huger piles of hair than Dolly Parton.

Fascinating note from her obit: her mother Liz wrote the masterpiece “I’m a Lonesome Fugitive” (about the best opening couplet in country, according to me).

Sad note from her obit: apparently she had quite a bit of trouble with the bottle in later years.

See — get the whole title in the hair.
