Grand Ole Opry artist Patti Page, born Clara Ann Fowler in 1927, has become one of the best-selling female artists of the 1950s with more than 100 million records sold. When she was eighteen, Fowler became a singer on a radio station in Tulsa, where she was dubbed “Pattie Page,” after the program’s sponsor the “Page Milk Company.” After her stint on the program, Page moved on to tour with the “Jimmy Joy Band” and, later,” Benny Goodman. In the late 40s, she signed with Mercury Records and became the label’s “girl singer.”
Throughout her career, Page has had a long line of successful hits, including four Number One singles. These singles were “All My Love (Bolero),” “Tennessee Waltz,” “I Went to Your Wedding” and “(How Much Is That) Doggie in the Window.”
Page’s style has incorporated traditional pop music, jazz melodies and a country arrangement. Her sound has been introduced to other artists, including Bing Crosby and The Andrews Sisters, both of which incorporated the same country arrangement into several of their own songs.
Page passed away on January 1, 2013 at eighty-five.
