City Girl Turned Country Gal Brings Culture Into the Stable at Gullringstorp Part 2

Most of their most famous songs were from the 30’s and 40’s.  As a young girl and well into my teens, I was attracted to the sounds of the 30’s and 40’s.  I was a bit of an oddity singing songs from that era when other young teens were enjoying Motown artists along with other artist of the day.
