Oct. 22, 2012. The Walker Center, on the campus of Wilkes Community College, will present Crystal Gayle on Oct. 26 at 8 p.m. This performance is sponsored by InterFlex Group. Crystal Gayle, as well known for her long flowing hair as for her supple voice, will present her classic soft ballads and country-pop hits, including “Don’t It Make My Brown Eyes Blue,” “You’ve Been Talking in Your Sleep,” “When I Dream,” “Half the Way” and “Just You and I,” which she originally recorded with Eddie Rabbitt.
Gayle has released over 20 number one hits and has been awarded numerous times by the Grammy’s, the Country Music Association, the Academy of Country Music, the American Music Awards, and the American Music Operators Association. In 2009 she was honored to receive her own star on the fabled Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Gayle’s two successful inspirational albums led to her 2009 induction into the Christian Music Hall of Fame. And her musical versatility doesn’t end there. She contributed songs to three Grammy-winning children’s albums including “Sesame Country,” a duet with Big Bird, and recorded a solo children’s album, “In My Arms,” a collection of lullabies that perfectly suits her warm vocals.
A limited number of tickets are available for this performance. For more information, or to purchase tickets, contact the Walker Center Box Office at 336-838-6260 or [email protected].
