Crystal was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry as a member in January 2017 by her sister Loretta Lynn. The Academy of Country Music recognized Crystal with a 2016 Cliffie Stone Pioneer Award for her lifetime achievements in country music. And in 2009 Crystal was honored to receive her own star on the fabled Hollywood Walk of Fame.
These honors are fitting tributes to Crystal who has been a favorite of audiences of country and popular music since attaining national prominence with her first chart records in the mid-seventies. Renowned for her classic recording of her timeless signature song Don’t It Make My Brown Eyes Blue, Crystal also scored with her multi-format hits You’ve Been Talking In Your Sleep, When I Dream, Half the Way and her duet with Eddie Rabbitt, Just You and I. Crystal has released over twenty number one hits and has been awarded numerous times by the Grammy’s, the Country Music Association, the Academy of Country Music, the American Music Awards, and the American Music Operators Association.
Drop dead beautiful and dressed in designer threads, Crystal took country music to town on her arm in the ‘70’s and helped introduce it to mainstream audiences. The result was a career of music and performances that appealed to Crystal’s country audiences and beyond.
While still in school, she signed her first recording contact. Her debut single, “I’ve Cried the Blue Right out of My Eyes,” was written by Loretta and reached the Top 25 on the national country music charts. Three more singles were released over the next three years, all making an impact with radio and listeners.
Her first album project began a roll out of smash singles to come. “Wrong Road Again,” (her first of many hit singles with producer Allen Reynolds) became her debut Top 10 record. “I’ll Get Over You,” became her first #1 single. By her fourth album, “We Must Believe in Magic,” Crystal Gayle became the first female artist in country music history to achieve platinum album sales. Driving the engine of the album was the song that was to become her enduring career signature song: “Don’t It Make My Brown Eyes Blue.”
“Brown Eyes” opened the world’s eyes to Crystal Gayle. She became a familiar name in households, grand and small, from Louisville to Leningrad. The glamour and the mystique of the Crystal Gayle phenomena made her an instantly “in demand” artist. From symphony halls to Carnegie Hall, from the best kept stages in Las Vegas to the prestige of the London Palladium, one word — “Crystal” — crossed musical genres and oceans.
Breaking through the unusual genre boundaries faced by most artists has allowed Crystal Gayle a beautiful advantage: doing projects close to her heart just for the sheer love of the music in question. One of the most meaningful was “Crystal Gayle Sings the Heart & Soul of Hoagy Carmichael,” a stunning, critically acclaimed collection of 15 of the great composer’s favorite classics. “One of my personal career highlights was getting to meet and sing with Hoagy on a television special,” Crystal recalls. Crystal not only breathed new life into the Carmichael classics, but produced the “must have” album of her career that included such immortals as “Stardust” and “Two Sleepy People.”
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 three years. Fittingly, the “Celebration of Light Award” was Waterford Crystal.
Like fine wine…time has been nothing but kind to Crystal Gayle.
