Sad news to report.  Country singer Holly Dunn has died at the very young age of 59.  I did not know this, but Holly had been struggling with a rare form of ovarian cancer.  I was a big fan of Holly’s.  I met her a few times, and when I had the chance to talk to her she was so down to earth.  So normal.  Just one of music lovers.  Some times you meet a singer that becomes a little too big for their britches.  Some become so popular that they cannot relate to their fans anymore. But not Holly.  Holly seemed to love and respect every one of her fans.  Holly seemed to be the type that knew that all of us, as fans, put the bread on her table and the clothes on her back.



Holly Dunn did appear in Aberdeen at least once.  The last time was with the Bellamy Brothers at the Ramada.  It was a small venue, but the perfect venue for a couple of artists who have had so many hits, but probably past their prime in their careers. 

Holly Dunn has had many hits, but probably the most important to her was this one.


And now, a mini musical tribute to Holly Dunn.  Gone way too soon at 59.  Beautiful person. Beautiful spirit.  Beautiful music.

Here’s the biggie.

And this next one is probably my favorite song from Holly.

Enjoy the music.  Find her greatest hits album or CD and listen.  You will hear a lot of songs from the 90’s that made Holly Dunn a star.
