Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Jenny Lou Carson, (January 13, 1915-December 16, 1978), born Virginia Lucille Overstake, was an American country music singer-songwriter and the first woman to write a No. 1 country music hit. From 1945 to 1955 she was one of the most prolific songwriters in country music. The second of six children of Herschel Jewel Overstake and Helen Elizabeth Nalefski, she was born in Decatur, Illinois. She was raised in Decatur in modest surroundings. She learned to work early in life and was expected to do chores around the house. Her father had a strict, no-nonsense personality who instilled a strong work ethic and a fierce win-at-any-cost sense of competition in his children.show more
