Country music singer Crystal Gayle, best known for her 1977 hit “Don’t Make My Brown Eyes Blue,” is set to perform at the Performing Arts Center (PAC) in Santa Clarita this weekend.
Gayle, who has won several awards including a Grammy and three American Music Awards, is scheduled to perform at College of the Canyons’ PAC on Saturday at 8 pm in Santa Clarita.
“What we do is we just have fun, and that’s the most important part,” Gayle said in an interview on the Hometown Morning Show. “We’ll get out there and do songs, and I do songs that are off my latest album ‘You Don’t Know Me’ which is classic country.”
Over the span of her career, which took off in the 70’s, Gayle has earned five Academy of Country Music awards and two Country Music Awards, according to the PAC.
In 2009, Gayle had a star placed on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in her honor.
She was also the first female country artist to go platinum, according to Biography.
On the Hometown Morning Show, Gayle spoke about the death of fellow country music performer Naomi Judd, who passed away on Saturday.
“We never performed in the sense of singing together… we were more friends,” Gayle said. “We’re close as entertainers, but being both from Kentucky, we had a special bond.”
Gayle talked about her iconic long hair, which has made her easy to identify over the years.
“I keep saying I’m gonna do a little book or a video showing how I dealt with hair,” Gayle said at the Hometown Morning Show. “It’s still below the knees and I say I should just cut it but it’s hard to get rid of something that’s been with you.”
