Biography

Skeeter Davis was one of country music's best-selling females during the 1960s. Born in Dry Ridge, Kentucky, on December 30, 1931, she recorded her first songs as a member of the Davis Sisters, scoring a Number One hit in 1953 with "I Forgot More Than You'll Ever Know." She shifted her focus to a solo career during the late 1950s and began enjoying even greater acclaim, earning a Grammy nomination for 1959's "Set Him Free" — the first song by a female country artist to receive such an honor — and racking up 10 different Top 10 hits by the time "The End of the World" was released in 1962. The only song in history to peak within the Top 5 of America's country, R&B, easy listening, and Hot 100 charts, "The End of the World" remained Davis' biggest hit throughout the rest of her career, although singles like "Fuel to the Fire," "What Does It Take (To Keep a Man Like You Satisfied)," and "I Can't Believe That It's All Over" kept her name of the Billboard charts through the mid-'70s.
