Lacy J. Dalton Was One Of The Biggest Country Stars In The 1980′s

I was working at KKAA radio in Aberdeen, S.D. when I first was introduced to Lacy J. Dalton.

Oh, not literally introduced.  I’ve never met the lady.  But I’ve always felt you can get to know an artist through the songs they write and sing.

So then, in 1980 I was introduced to Lacy J. Dalton through her first major hit, ‘Hard Times’.  It kind of, I don’t know…put things into perspective.  If you haven’t heard it, I have a treat for you.  If you remember it, let’s enjoy it again.

It’s always hard to tell if a ‘new artist’ has staying power.  I’ve heard it said that, as hard as it is to make it to the top, it’s even harder to stay there.  So, would Lacy J. Dalton be a proverbial ‘One-Hit-Wonder‘?

Absolutely not.  With nearly 20 chart singles including several Top 10′s, Lacy J. Dalton was one of the biggest Country Star’s of the decade.  1981′s ‘Takin’ It Easy’ solidified her position in Country Music at the time, and has made her one of our favorites here at Classic Country KXRB.

But truth be known, my all-time favorite of Lacy is the one featured in the video at the top of this page, ’16th Avenue’ from 1982.  It’s one of those song’s (and there aren’t many) that I can listen to over and over all these many years later.

So…whatever happened to Lacy J. Dalton?

Well according to her official website http://www.lacyjdalton.com/ she’s recording new music!  At the age of 67, this Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania native is still writing, recording, and playing shows.

Now that’s what I call great news!  Lacy J. Dalton has one of the most distinctive voices in the history of Country Music!
