Have you ever heard of LaWanda Lindsey? She’s another person out of my musical past that I came to know. Yes, it’s another Country Music video that I’m posting here, but country is my past and just how it is.
I’m guessing LaWanda and I are about the same age now. She was always nice to me—this kid from Vevay, Indiana. Hell, she was just a kid herself.
She had a few hits. Most of them, actually all of them, were on Chart Records, a little label based in Nashville. Then Lindsey hooked up with the Buck Owens group and signed with a big label, Capital Records. This was gonna be the big break for her but somehow that never happened. The singles released didn’t even make the charts. Go figure.
I think in the video clip up above she’s performing on “Hee-Haw,” because of what LaWanda is wearing and because of that canned applause sound, but that’s just a guess.
Now I have to go to spell-check on my computer and tell ‘it’ I’m spelling LaWanda correctly.
