Country Music Clothing 3, or Silver Threads and Golden Needles

Miss Minnie Pearl
Well, there's really not a "best" in this series--all the stuff was amazing & a thrill to see in Nashville, but this is sort of the best: the women's outfits!  Not quite as flashy as the men's clothing, and some of them were really not at all photogenic; the lighting on the outfits was great for looking, not so great for photographing.  Anyway, you'll enjoy these, I'm sure, and the music to go along with it...

Porter Wagoner & Dolly Parton
I couldn't get a good shot of the one Wanda Jackson dress at the Country Music Hall of Fame, but here's an amazing video of her singing Hard-Headed Woman, which was playing on a loop (with some other great dancing stuff--Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis, etc.).  Look at her dress...and her dance moves really show off that fringe!  She's still performing, btw here she is w/ Jack White on Letterman a while back, singing Shakin' All Over, and still wearing fringe. Go Wanda!

If you need more music to get you thru this tour, here's Loretta Lynn singing another of my favorites, You Ain't Woman Enough (To Take My Man).  I cannot resist that song.

Ernest Tubb's guitars always had this on the back!
Here's one of Ernest's hits, Drivin' Nails in My Coffin (Over You), a great example of Texas swing...find out more about Ernest, his record shops, the Midnite Jamboree shows, live from his record shops (there's an audio archive), or his 1970s tour bus at the Ernest Tubb Record Shops site.
