43 years ago today, Dottie West was a guest on “The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour”. Dottie and Glen performed together on the show and sang “Rocky Top”. Glen was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame nine years ago in 2005. Shouldn’t it be Dottie’s turn by now?

Oddly enough, in November of 2012, the Country Music Hall of Fame opened an exhibit called “Dottie West: Country Sunshine” which lasted through May of 2013.  However, the exhibit and its popularity did not lead to official induction into the Hall.  Will 2014 be the year?

Dottie West enjoyed a 40-year career in music.  She won a Grammy in 1965 for Best Female Country Vocal Performance for “Here Comes My Baby.”   She won back to back CMA Vocal Duo of the Year Awards from with Kenny Rogers in 1978 and 1979.  And in 2002, CMT named Dottie #23 on its list of the 40 Greatest Women of Country Music.

Though Dottie started releasing singles in the 1960′s, she actually didn’t achieve her first solo #1 until 1980 with “Lesson in Leavin.” She followed that with another #1 hit, “Are You Happy Baby?”

She had three #1′s with Kenny Rogers: “Every Time Two Fools Collide,” “All I Ever Need is You,” and “What Are We Doin’ in Love.”

Dottie died tragically in August of 1991.  She was involved in a fatal car crash on the Briley Parkway in Nashville.  She was en route to a performance at The Grand Ole Opry.
