Speaking of the Oilers, K.T. Oslin

K.T. reports she was happy to be a
replacement for Tanya Tucker on the
Tammy Wynette tribute album. Seems that
D-I-V-O-R-C-E proceedings with Capitol
was easier to have someone else sing
Your Good Girl's
Gonna Go Bad, a 1967 hit for Tammy.
K.T. got a call in the morning and cut
the song that
afternoon. And she used Tanya's tracks.
So here's how she describes the finished

Oslin and Orchestra Mesh
Versatile stylist and 1988 CMA Female
Vocalist of the Year K.T. Oslin joins
the Nashville Symphony Orchestra this
weekend (Oct. 1 and 2) as they present
the season's pops series opener. To
represent different stages of her
career, Oslin will sing selections
ranging from Broadway music and Gershwin
to '60s favorites.
The outspoken Oslin, whose big hits
include "'80s Ladies," "I'll Always Come
Back" and "Come Next Monday," hasn't
recorded an album since the
critically-acclaimed 1996 release My
Roots Are Showing. Though Oslin was
satisfied with the album, the
"marketplace" and radio reception was

odd might work."
The normally unflappable Oslin went on

over what we are allowed to hear and
makes up our minds as to whether we like
it or not. I resent that gauntlet you
have to run before people get to hear
