Nashville, TN (Webster & Associates) - In 2007, the long-haired princess of Nashville, CRYSTAL GAYLE will receive the highest honor Hollywood has to offer – a STAR on the Hollywood Walk of Fame!!!

'I have known about the Hollywood Walk Of Fame every since I was little and the first time I went to Hollywood early in my recording years I immediately went to the Hollywood Walk of Fame and walked and seen all the different great American Entertainers,' says Crystal Gayle. 'It is a great honor to be selected to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame with all the great stars that I grew up admiring.'

Strange to think of anyone as young and vibrant as the artist in question as a 'timeless classic' herself-but that indeed describes the course Crystal Gayle's career has taken. Before country was 'cool,' Crystal was 'class'...

In the mid '70's, Crystal was the focal point of her own one hour prime time special on CBS television-a special that earned the glowing praise of viewers and critics alike. Chic, hip, and cool with a romantic mane of hair that swept around her ankles, in one evening of television Crystal Gayle moved country music to the highest platform it had yet reached in the eyes of the viewing and listening nation.

The blue eyed beauty from the Appalachian coal mining town of Paintsville, Kentucky would never again linger in the shadow of being Loretta Lynn's baby sister. Drop dead beautiful and dressed in designer threads, Crystal took country music to town on her arm in the '70's and introduced it to mainstream audiences.

Country, folk, pop, rock 'n roll, Broadway show tunes, gospel...all found equal place in her heart, growing up as the youngest of eight children. Like sister Loretta, Crystal too was a 'coal miners daughter' before she was platinum selling singer and a world class entertainer.

What next emerged was uniquely Crystal. Her hit list of platinum and gold record sales was to be matched only by her awards and accolades. CMA 'Female Vocalist Of The Year,' for two consecutive years, she became a Grammy Award Winner for 'Best Female Vocal Performance,' thanks to her beloved 'Brown Eyes' - a song that she today admits she has never grown tired of singing. Crystal swept the Academy of Country Music Awards for three of their 'Top Female Vocalist' statuettes. As her music and her career path widened to mainstream audiences-so did her accolades. She is the recipient of three 'American Music Awards' -voted by the nation as America's 'Favorite Female Artist.'

Success swept around her as gracefully as her trademarked long hair. Always gracious and generous with her time and talents, Crystal has been awarded the coveted 'Celebration of Light Award' in recognition of her myriad humanitarian efforts-among them the Make-A-Wish Foundation (for whom she has recorded the official theme song) and the Arthritis Foundation, for whom she has served as telethon co-host for several years. Fittingly, the 'Celebration of Light Award' was a presentation in Waterford Crystal.

One of the most fitting honors in her career came in 1999 when 'Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue' was recognized by ASCAP as one being one of the ten most performed songs of the 20th century.
Like fine wine... time has been nothing but kind to Crystal Gayle.
