Sunday Morning Country Classic Spotlight to Feature Donna Fargo


Country-pop crossover artist Donna Fargo began her string of hits with her self penned signature tune, “Happiest Girl in the Whole USA,”  that was followed by, “Funny Face,” and “Superman.”

Donna was raised on her father’s North Carolina tobacco farm, Yvonne Vaughn was the youngest of four children.  She started her adult life teaching ninth and twelfth grade English in the Los Angeles suburb of Lovina.

That first hit, “Happiest Girl in the Whole USA,” won a Grammy and became the CMA’s single of the year in 1972.  It was the first of thirty-eight singles to hit Billboards Country Chart.  Fargo was stricken with Multiple Sclerosis in 1979.  It caused a serious setback in her performing and recording career.

After several years without a full length recording, in 1992, Fargo began work on her autobiography.  In 2008, Fargo released a new single CD, “We Can Do Better in America.”  Since having left recording albums and singles, she has pursued other careers outside the music business.  She released her forth book in March 2010, “I Thanked God for You Today.”

Join me Sunday morning May 13th for the life and music of Donna Fargo at 11 Am.  Its a segment of the Country Classic Show on 98.1 FM 98 Country from 9 Am to 1 PM every Sunday.
