40 Glamorous Photos of Crystal Gayle in the 1970s and ’80s

Born 1951 as Brenda Gail Webb in Paintsville, Kentucky, American country music singer and songwriter Crystal Gayle began her career in the 1960s performing in the background of her siblings' bands, most notably Loretta Lynn. Lynn helped her sign a recording contract with Decca Records in 1970.


In 1975, “Wrong Road Again” became Gayle's first major hit. However, it was in 1977 when Gayle achieved her biggest success with the single “Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue”. The song topped the Billboard country chart, crossed over to the top five of the Billboard Hot 100, and became a major international hit. She continued having major country pop success from the late 1970s and through late 1980s. Her biggest hits included “Ready for the Times to Get Better” (1977), “Talking in Your Sleep” (1978), “Half the Way” (1979) and “You and I” (1982).

Gayle has won one Grammy Award and has been nominated for several others since the 1970s. She has also won five Academy of Country Music awards; those awards include receiving the Cliffie Stone Pioneer Award in 2016.

In addition, she has won two Country Music Association awards and three American Music Awards. Rolling Stone ranked her among the 100 greatest country artists of all time and CMT ranked her within their list of the 40 greatest women of country music.

Gayle has her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and was inducted as a member of the Grand Ole Opry in 2017.
