Candy Barr (for Jack the Okie)

Thanks. Makes my day. As you may surmise, I'm from Oklahoma. At the OU-Texas football game in 1958 I was privileged to see Candy perform on the back of a three-ton truck parked in front of the Adolphus Hotel in downtown Dallas. A memorable sight, to say the least, especially for a 20 year old in the big city. She became an animal on stage (or truck). A singer-songwriter named Jerry Riopelle has a song called Candy Barr, recorded in the early 70's that is still one of my favorites. It's worth a listen. Again, thanks.
