Female Pioneer in Country Music
Margie began her music career in the late 1950’s and continues today. Margie Singleton tried on as many diverse musical roles as any woman then working in the country field. She has recorded for several major labels including Starday, Mercury, United Artists, Monument and Ashley Records. She also recorded duets with George Jones and had several hit duet singles with Faron Young.
Margie was a member and regular on the Louisiana Hayride and also made appearances on The Grand Ole Opry and the Wheeling Jamboree. Even in her heyday, her musical abilities and sensibilities were unjustly underappreciated.
