Cousin Emmy - hillbilly diva

They don't make divas like this anymore! Cousin Emmy is the complete opposite of the bland, polished to plastic perfection divas we have today. Even her teeth are A Case For Socialized Dentistry. Cousin Emmy is neat and elegant but she's got personality and doesn't have hangups about what she "should" be. She's herself! Who was she? From what country dynasty was she a cousin of? This is why I listened to hillbilly music when I was younger, before it became blatantly commercial. It was "real" and honest. Hokey but real and honest. Cousin Emmy is still alive, aged 98 and on myspace and prob facebook too.
