Triple Grammy winner, K.T. Oslin, a member of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, has passed away at the age of 78. Our prayers and condolences go out to her family as county music has taken another loss
K.T. Oslin’s 1987 hit “80s Ladies,” had been battling Parkinson’s disease in recent years. Her death was confirmed by the Country Music Association and first reported by friend and country music historian Robert K. Oermann. Oslin had been staying in an assisted living facility since 2016. She was diagnosed with COVID-19 last week, but “it is unclear whether this contributed to her death on Monday morning,” Oermann said.
“I am so sad to hear that K. T. Oslin has passed. She was truly one of the best singers I ever heard. I loved the way she made the words come alive with the expressiveness of her unique voice. Thank God we still have her music to learn from.” – Ricky Skaggs pic.twitter.com/401LndAZDs
