Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Cathie Taylor was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba on 7/26/1944. As a child Taylor had moved with her family from Canada to Morgan Hill, California. At age 12, a talent contest appearance led to her singing western folk songs on San Francisco's KQED-TV. After some time raising blue-ribbon cows, she landed her own radio show on KPER, Gilroy, CA. Word of her talent spread to Country & Western impresario Cliffie Stone, who invited her to Los Angeles, and guided her early career. Taylor went on to appear on The Breakfast Club, The Tennessee Ernie Ford Show (2/19/59), The Lawrence Welk Show and The Roy Rogers & Dale Evans Show (1962), as well as starring as a singer in Alfred Hitchcock's Presents, Run For Doom (5/17/63). She appeared in the 1963 film Hootenanny Hoot (which also featured Johnny Cash, George Hamilton IV, Judy Henske and many others), sang on Shindig! (9/1/65), and won awards from the Academy of Country Music in 1966 (Most Promising Female Vocalist) and 1968 (Best Female Vocalist).show more
