With Forever Young, Kitty Wells proved she was just that. Recorded for the Capricorn label, this record paired Kitty Wells with Southern rock's leading musicians. Wells had her first #1 hit with "It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels" in 1952, but she holds her own against the energetic backing. The singer does amazing work as she reaches across genres with versions of songs by Otis Redding ("I've Been Loving You Too Long"), Aretha Franklin ("Do Right Woman, Do Right Man"), and Bob Dylan ("Forever Young").
