Highway Heroine Bakersfield Twang backed by the Buckaroos!

Got your ears on? This album collects Kay Adams’ live studio cuts from the Buck Owens Ranch Show.Along with Tammy, Patsy and Loretta, Kay was one of country’s first female artists who elevated women in the genre. Gritty and country-to-the-bone, let this one spin & cut a rug!

Pressed on pink vinyl!

Most of the Ranch Show songs Adams didn’t draw from her regular repertoire were tunes recorded by Buck Owens at some point, including “We’re Gonna Let the Good Times Roll,” “Number One Heel,” “Down, Down, Down,” and “Loose Talk.” But her Ranch Show renditions reveal a singer just as deserving of Bakersfield royalty status as the head honcho himself. She’s indomitable, inconsolable, or incorrigible as the moment demands. And whichever emotion she conveys, she achieves a pope-on-a-polygraph level of believability. Adams’ Ranch Show recordings are a hell of a legacy all on their own.

When Adams tucks into “Silver Threads and Golden Needles,” things come full circle in multiple ways. “That was the first song I ever sang for Dave Stogner, and I used to sing that with my dad’s band,” she explains. That crucial catch in her voice signified that she was still every bit the Vernon-bred country girl who chimed in on her father’s gigs. But she was also the loud, proud woman unafraid to rock that tune up years before Linda Ronstadt tackled it.
