Past Dates

Ursula West, singer and sweetheart, queen and confidante, with a rare degree of warmth in her singing style that manages to be at once passionate and motherly. Being as intensely genuine as she is talented, her songs often deal with matters other women in country music wouldn’t have discussed in private. In A Legend in My Time, the spirited star tells candidly about the high price of fame and the stressful demands of show business, of friends and family she’s loved and lost, all in her signature friendly, down-home style stamped with old-time simplicity. A loving, determined woman who’s endured poverty, dashed hopes, domestic violence, slandering, heartbreak, unfaithfulness and the unjust terrors of a hard drinking husband, and who’s come through it all triumphant with solitary strength.

“Unflinching … potent…By the end of “A Legend in My Time”, Ursula West not only commands respect, she seems like a dear old friend.”
The New York Times
