You might say Shelly West came upon her incredible country music singing talent honestly.  After all, her Mom Dottie was one of country music's biggest star's!

But Shelly didn't just live off her famous Mom, she had a very successful career of her own, garnering a solo #1 hit in 1983 with "Jose Cuervo" and of course her duet hit's with David Frizzell, including the smash #1 hit  "You're The Reason God Made Oklahoma".

 

 

David is, of course, the brother of country music legend Lefty Frizzell, so their was some might fine country music blood running through the vein's of these country stars!

So whatever happened to Shelly West?

I am happy to say....nothing bad! Shelly is semi-retired from the music business and doing well at age 56.

By the way, check out all the classic country star's in this video of Shelly singing her biggest solo hit.  How many can you count and identify?
