Tribute to Patti Page produced by Mike Cameron with Annie Ellicott: Unforgettable songs like “Tennessee Waltz” and “(How Much Is That) Doggie in the Window” made Patti Page the best-selling female singer of the 1950s and a star who would spend much of the rest of her life traveling the world. Page died on New Year’s Day in Encinitas, California, ending one of pop music’s most diverse careers. She was 85 and just five weeks away from being honored at the Grammy Awards with a Lifetime Achievement Award from The Recording Academy.
Page achieved several career milestones in American pop culture, but she’ll be remembered for indelible hits that crossed the artificial categorizations of music and remained atop the charts for months to reach a truly national audience. “Tennessee Waltz” scored the rare achievement of reaching No. 1 on the pop, country and R&B charts simultaneously and was officially adopted as one of two official songs by the state of Tennessee. Its reach was so powerful; six other artists reached the charts the following year with covers. Page was one of the last surviving American singers who was popular in the pre-Elvis Presley era when songs on the pop charts leaned more toward innocence than rock `n’ roll’s overt obsession with sex.
Page proved herself something of a match for the rockers, continuing to place songs on the charts into the 1960s. “I was a kid from Oklahoma who never wanted to be a singer, but was told I could sing,” she said in a 1999 interview. “And things snowballed.” She received the Pioneer Award from the Academy of Country Music in 1980, and is also is an inducted member of the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame. Produced by Mike Cameron, the “Tribute to Patti Page” honors the musical icon with Oklahoma roots. – Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame, 111 E First, Upper Level. Thursday night at 7:00 p.m.
