Kitty Wells, the country singer known as the first female superstar of her genre, has died. She was 92.
The Associated Press reported that she passed away peacefully at home Monday following complications from a stroke.
The "Queen of Country Music" had a decades-long music career that began in the 1930s, and her solo recording career spanned from 1952 to the late '70s. She continued touring until 2000.
