A Short Barbara Blevins Biography
Barbara Birkla Blevins was born may 31, 1942, in Mt. Carmel, ill. moved to Pecos, TX. in the late 50’s, graduated in 1961.I’ve always been interested in writing music, but was too busy working and raising a family. In the early 90’s, I became serious about becoming a song writer and was encouraged by the 2 B’s, Clyde and Keith. I became the 3rd B. When the album Reflections was being produced into Keith’s first CD, we flew to Nashville to meet with Keith and get acquainted with Kitty Wells and Johnny Wright. At that time Keith was opening the show for Kitty and Johnny. We were invited to ride the tour bus with Kitty, Johnny and Keith to the WSM radio station at Ernest Tubb record shop. When the bus arrived at the WSM radio station, I noticed a young woman waiting and holding several 78 rpm record covers as MS. Kitty Wells stepped off the bus, this girl approached her and trembled as she asked Kitty to autograph them for her. Later on we learned that this dedicated fan with 3 children, drove all night and most of the day, just to meet and hear Kitty Wells. She was from West Virginia and grew up listening to MS. Kitty records. When they arrived at Ernest Tubb record shop, hungry and tired, afraid they wouldn’t get a parking place, she had the kids to sit in the parking space and save it while she went to a nearby McDonald’s for burgers and fries, that is what I call a truly dedicated fan. That’s the kind of fan we would like to have. In the future I plan on working and writing with the 2-b’s.
