Personalities | Cindy Walker | Cowboys & Playboys | Country

(Songwriter, vocals, 1918–2006)

The sophisticated songs of Cindy Walker were particularly attractive to western-swing performers like Bob Wills, whose recordings helped establish her as one of the top songwriters in country music. From Mart, Texas, Walker also sang, recorded and appeared in films with Texas Jim Lewis. Over time, she concentrated solely on writing and turned out dozens of classics, including ‘Dusty Skies’, ‘Bubbles In My Beer’, ‘You Don’t Know Me’ and many more.
