Biography

American country music singer. Along with Kitty Wells, she helped set the standard for later women in country music.

Hill had a strong and twangy voice that can be heard in other country singers of the 1960s such as Loretta Lynn and Tammy Wynette. With the success of Kitty Wells and her 1952 hit "It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels", Hill was able to pursue her own career after the profit potential of female singers was realized by record companies.

Hill performed on Louisiana Hayride as The Golden Hillbilly, and the name stuck with her for the rest of her career. Her song "I Let the Stars Get In My Eyes” was a hit in 1953, and made it to the top of the country charts. In 1954, she followed up with two hit duets with singer Justin Tubb, son of Ernest Tubb. Among their hits together are "Looking Back to See" and "Sure Fire Kisses."

She married country singer Carl Smith in 1957 and retired to their horse farm south of Nashville, where she raised their children. In the 1970s, following her husband's retirement, they showed their horses professionally. On 24 February 2005, Hill died from complications of cancer, aged 72.
