The Women of Southern Songbirds - Wilma Lee Cooper

The Women of Southern Songbirds

Wilma Lee Cooper:

Valley Head, West Virginia is the small town where Wilma Lee Cooper, then a Leary, first learned to sing. The church where her father was a minister nurtured her strong singing voice and gospel repertoire. Her family's gospel group represented the state of West Virginia at the National Folk Festival in Washington, D.C., in 1932. Wilma Lee with her husband Stoney Cooper made country music history on live radio shows throughout the southern U.S. They had a prolific recording career, and performed for years on the Grand Ole Opry, where Wilma Lee continues to appear today.
