WHERE IS K T OSLIN THESE DAYS ?? SHE NEEDS A COMEBACK !!!!!

Oslin actually believes that her age has worked to her advantage in an industry where youth has traditionally been a prerequisite. "I let people know forty isn't the age to pack it in," she told the In she expressed her gratitude and wonder another way. Now, when she performs, she said, "young 20-year-old boys come up to me and give me flowers. I'm talkin' real cuties." Asked if she regrets all the years she spent in obscurity, Kay Toinette Oslin responded, "I'd rather be starting now than ending now."

Kay Toinette Oslin's sudden success as a vocalist marks a new trend in country music. Well into her forties--and just slightly overweight--Oslin hardly projects the image of beauty and submissiveness long associated with female country singers. Her songs too follow a different path: rather than "standing by her man," she extols the virtues of ogling young cuties and offers tributes to mature womanhood. Oslin labored in obscurity and poverty for more than twenty years, and was on the verge of quitting before her 1987 album, went gold. Since then she has ridden the top of the country charts, both with her debut effort and with her follow-up album,

For a short time in the late '80s, K.T. Oslin was one of the most popular female country singers around. Her worldly, distinctly modern persona was quite unlike any of her peers, and she matched it with utterly contemporary country-pop production, complete with synthesizers. Born Kay Toinette Oslin on May 15, 1942, in Crossett, AR, she soon moved to Mobile, AL, and at age five settled in Houston after the death of her father. Oslin's mother had been an aspiring country singer before being forced to support her family, and she passed along her love of music to her daughter. Oslin studied drama at junior college and during the '60s performed in a folk trio with singer/songwriter Guy Clark and producer David Jones. She later went to Los Angeles to work on an album with Frank Davis, but the sessions were never completed, and she returned to Houston and worked in musical theater. A part in the national touring company of Hello, Dolly! led to a trip to Manhattan and a spot in the chorus of the Broadway version. She remained in New York for a time, appearing in shows, singing demos and commercial jingles, and working on her songwriting. In 1978, she sang harmony on a Guy Clark album and in 1981 released two singles on Elektra as Kay T. Oslin. Neither "Clean Up Your Own Tables" nor "Younger Men (Are Startin' to Catch My Eye)" did well at country radio, which simply wasn't ready for such a feisty, feminist-minded woman -- who was pushing 40 at that.
