Carrie Sings Country
Most folks don t know that Sissy Spacek's first foray into showbiz was as a singer; back in 1969 she recorded a single under the name Rainbow damning John Lennon for his racy Two Virgins album cover in the song, "John, You Went Too Far This Time". I believe I included it in one of my podcasts. It was treated as a novelty tune and it didn't too much other than be released. It wasn't until 14 years later, as she sang her way through the country music catalogue of Loretta Lynn that Miss Spacek would release a more solid recording. On the heels of her Oscar winning role as the Coal Miner s Daughter, Sissy released a full-fledged country album. Not only did this album spawn a hit single with "Lonely but Only for You", but it was produced by Rodney Crowell with guest artists Rosanne Cash and Vince Gill! Extremely impressive for a celebrity recording. Here is that album made by Sissy Spacek back in 1980. Here is "Hanging Up My Heart". Enjoy!
