For my money, this is one of the best video interpretations of a classic song ever done; it adds a new dimension to the story being told in the original. The song itself flew in the face of almost everything country music was all about back then. K.T. Oslin, like Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson and other new voices, changed everything. 80’s Ladies won the County Music Association Song of the Year in 1988 and was named Female Vocalist of the Year in 1989.
