Whatever Happened To Crystal Gayle

Subscribe to KXRB-AM on

Brenda Gayle Webb was born in Painstville, Kentucky, the little sister of Loretta Webb.

Loretta Webb became the legendary Loretta Lynn.  Brenda Webb became country music superstar Crystal Gayle.

Not a bad country music lineage!

Crystal’s debut sing ‘I’ve Cried The Blue Right Out Of My Eyes’ in1970 was written by Loretta.  While it didn’t crack the Top Ten, it did get people murmuring about Loretta’s little sister.

In the early to mid 1970’s Crystal charted a number of country songs, but it was in 1977 that Crystal moved away from being ‘Loretta’s little sister’ and became a country music star in her own right.

1977 was the year of ‘Don’t It Make My Brown Eyes Blue’.  The song spent a solid month atop the country music charts, peaked at #2 on the pop/rock charts and #4 on the Easy Listening chart.  It also earned Crystal a Grammy and placed her squarely in the hearts of fans around the world.

With 16 #1 hits to her credit, Crystal has placed herself firmly into country music history.  So whatever happened to Crystal Gayle?

Now a mother and grandmother, the 64 year old Crystal Gayle is still singing and touring the world.

Oh…and did you know her older sister is also a country singer?
