Grammy-winning songstress Crystal Gayle sits down with Dan Rather in next week’s all-new episode of AXS TV’s “The Big Interview,” airing Tuesday, March 7th, at 8 p.m. ET. During the candid discussion, Gayle opens up about her celebrated career, her most enduring songs, and her relationship with sister…and fellow superstar…Loretta Lynn, among other topics.
One of the most defining attributes of Gayle’s remarkable style is her unique ability to really connect with the songs she sings and she and Rather spend time discussing this topic.
Revealing how she’s been able to develop this skill, Gayle says, “You have to be able to put the words across, the lyrics. You have to have a little bit of acting. It’s really in tone, too… You just go in there and you sing, and you put your heart and soul into it, and hope someone likes it.”
While Gayle and her older sister, Loretta Lynn, have both enjoyed tremendous success in country music, she explains that there really wasn’t any sibling rivalry going on…despite some of the media’s reports.
“We were so busy, both of us, in our careers, that we really didn’t have time to bicker…We really didn’t have problems. Of course, we’re sisters, we can bicker. In the studio, you should hear us when we’re trying to learn a song. But, no, we really did not have the problem. I look up to my sister. We both have flaws in different ways, but… we love each other. We overlook, and that’s why I think our family is so great,” Gayle comments.
