Hartt & Soul Productions Presents: Benefitting One World
Show Time : 7:00 PM
Crystal Gayle is a national treasure. She was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in January 2017 by her sister Loretta Lynn. The Academy of Country Music recognized Gayle with a 2016 Cliffie Stone Pioneer Award for her Lifetime Achievements in Country Music, and in 2009 she was honored to receive her own star on the fabled Hollywood Walk of Fame. These honors are fitting tributes to Gayle who has been a favorite of audiences of country and popular music since attaining national prominence with her first chart records in the mid-seventies. Renowned for her classic recording of her timeless signature song, “Don’t It Make My Brown Eyes Blue,” Gayle also scored with her multi-format hits, “You’ve Been Talking In Your Sleep,” “When I Dream,” “Half the Way,” and her duet with Eddie Rabbitt, “Just You and I.” Gayle has released over 20 number one hits and has been awarded numerous times by the GRAMMYs, the Country Music Association, the Academy of Country Music, the American Music Awards, and the American Music Operators Association. Her earliest roots in country music led to what was at that time in the industry an unusual turn of events: Gayle’s success wave engineered a seamless crossover to mainstream, following the footsteps of Eddy Arnold, Patsy Cline, Ray Price, and so many more of her musical heroes, as well as continuing the path for other great artists such as Shania Twain and Faith Hill.
