    (May 23, 1959- )
    Born in Cleveland, Ohio
    Daughter of Dottie West
    Solo singles include ‘Jose Cuervo,’ ‘Flight 309 to Tennessee,’ ‘Another Motel Memory,’ ‘Somebody Buy This Cowgirl a Beer,’ and ‘Now There’s You’
    Singles with David Frizzell (brother-in-law) include ‘You’re the Reason God Made Oklahoma,’ ‘A Texas State of Mind,’ ‘Another Honky-Tonk Night on Broadway,’ ‘I Just Came Here to Dance,’ and ‘It’s a Be-Together Night’
    CDs include ‘Carryin’ on the Family Names’ (with David Frizzell), ‘West By West,’ ‘Red Hot,’ and ‘Don’t Make Me Wait on the Moon’
    Technical advisor for ‘Big Dreams and Broken Hearts: The Dottie West Story’ (1995)
    She was born in a state that wasn’t exactly a country music hotbed at the time.
    Of the seven significant awards she achieved between 1980 and 1983, only one was achieved independently of Frizzell.
    Since her mother was among the established performers heavily impacted by huge industry changes – and she herself hadn’t charted for about five years – she retired shortly after that fatal car crash.
    Though not spelled quite the same way, she was named for her mother’s favorite actress.
    She began at age 17 as a backup vocalist in her mother’s show.
    Not only was ‘Jose Cuervo’ a #1 single, it helped spike sales for its namesake tequila.
    She managed to get more than 20 singles into the Billboard Country Music charts.
