Back before when the new generation country music queens like Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert started to rule the kingdom, there were three legends. They are the country music queens who reigned supreme in their “queendoms“, and they are popularly known as the Honky Tonk Angels.

A girl group collaboration in the early 1990s, the Honky Tonk Angels consist of American country music goddesses Dolly Parton, Tammy Wynette, and Loretta Lynn. It also refers to their collaborative studio album which was released by Columbia Records on November 2, 1993. Parton co-produced the said album with friends and record producers Owen Bradley and Steve Buckingham.

The Honky Tonk Angels were indeed the dream girl group in country music country fans could ever ask for. Vocal powerhouses Parton, Wynette and Lynn just sound magical and divine. Their voices, music, and overall, their instrument when combined together is perfection.

The album, Honky Tonk Angels, includes 12 singles which are mostly covers. To note, it spent 24 weeks at no. 6 on the Billboard Country Album chart. One of the songs in the album, “Silver Threads and Golden Needles” is a country female vocalist staple. Also, it is actually their most notable covered song together accompanied by an amusing music video one cannot resist watching!

When the Honky Tonk Angels released their collaborative album in 1993, only one single was aired on the radio. It was “Silver Threads and Golden Needles“. Sadly, the song did not get a lot of airplay.

Despite the low airplay, the trio made and released an accompanying music video for the song. Interestingly, the result was rather amazing. Actually, the three angels decided to include all their male country music friends. In a spoof, they portrayed how hard it is to meet the ladies backstage to see them at a show.

In the music video, the Honky Tonk Angels are visited by their male friends (who are also country music singers) namely, Ricky Skaggs, Rodney Crowell, Bill Anderson, Jim Nabors, Little Jimmy Dickens, Marty Stuart and Ronnie Milsap. All of them, however, fail to enter the room and talk with the ladies. Eventually, it is only country music producer Chet Atkins who managed to enter and talk with the ladies.
