Meet Millie and Dolly Good

Millie and Dolly Good, also known as The Girls of the Golden West, were one (or I guess I should say two) of a very few female country artists of their time. When they first started out, it was suggested they were born and raised in Muleshoe, Texas, but they actually were from Illinois. They started recording in the early 1930's for Bluebird Records. Throughout the 30's and 40's the girls made hundreds of personal appearances at state fairs and radio stations throughout the south, where they would sing and yodel. Although they stopped performing in the late 40's, their influence lived on with future singers who they inspired, like Kitty Wells and Patsy Cline. Their recordings are so cool!! Very primitive and basic.
