Miami, Florida (PRWEB) July 17, 2012
Country music mourns the loss of such an unbelievable talent Kitty Wells. Wells died Monday from complications of a stroke at her Nashville home. She was 92. She was best known for such hits as “It Wasn’t God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels.”
Wells also recorded 50 albums in her lifetime and had 25 Top 10 country hits. She was inducted into the Country Music Hall Of Fame in 1976. Remembering other celebrities we have lost this year.
"Wells died Monday from complications of a stroke at her Nashville home. She was 92. A housewife in a gingham dress, she’d hardly looked the part of feminist ground breaker. But she was. Her breakout hit in 1952, “It Wasn’t God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels,” was an answer song written by Johnny D. Miller in response to Hank Thompson’s hit, “The Wild Side of Life.” In that song, Thompson blamed “a honky tonk angel” for breaking up his marriage.
"Backed by the plaintive whine of a steel guitar, Wells sang, “Too many times married men think they’re still single. That has caused many a good girl to go wrong.”

A representative of GreenBeanBuddy.com stats that Wells was such an influence on her fans but she also had a huge impact on some of today’s country music singers such as Taylor Swift who tweeted her respects by saying that without Kitty Wells there would be no Taylor Swift.
It’s rather unfortunate that these superstars had to pass but as the old saying goes all good things have to come to an end which is why everyone should value their health and take better care of themselves to avoid some of the health issues that these celebrities went through.
Cancer and strokes have all been linked to smoking tobacco cigarettes which is why Green Bean Buddy has looked into the Solar Cigarette electronic cigarette to help smokers fight their nicotine cravings and help them lose weight.
