Catalogue Number: QLDVD6698
UPC: 022891669890

Country Music International recently referred to Gail Davies as "one of the most important and influential female singer/songwriters to have been involved in country music in the past 20 years." She was the first woman to produce her own records and is cited by current divas Kathy Mattea, Susy Boggus and Pam Tillis as their role model, the person who kicked open so many of the closed doors on Music Row.

Gail began producing her own albums from 1979 on, beginning with The Game on Warner Brothers Records. She sang, wrote and produced a series of successful LPs and hit singles during the 80s, which included a successful attempt to revive bluegrass music on country radio with "Blue Heartache," one of her first Top 10 hits. She delivered as series of brilliantly produced remakes of classic, hillbilly, oldies like "Are You Teasing Me," "Poison Love" and "Singing the Blues" and scored two more Top 10 Billboard hits with "I'll Be There" and "It's a Lovely, Lovely World."

An inspiring performer, Gail Davies is one of the few artists to have ever received a standing ovation at the Grand Ole Opry and has toured with a who's who of artists including George Jones, Neil Young, Willie Nelson, Carl Perkins, George Strait, Waylon Jennings and Glen Campbell.
