No. 48: Crystal Gayle, ‘Don’t Make My Brown Eyes Blue’ – Top 100 Country Songs

Don't Make My Brown Eyes Blue
United Artists

This jazzy ballad from Crystal Gayle was a No. 1 hit and also enjoyed crossover success in 1977 and 1978. Song No. 48 on the Top 100 Country Songs list would also earn Gayle a Grammy and later be named one of the most-played songs of the 20th century.

The album ‘Don’t Make My Brown Eyes Blue’ became the first for a female country artist to go platinum for one million units sold. While Gayle was already a popular voice before the song’s release, the hit would help her to be one of the most important female singers of the ’70s and ’80s.
