Internationally acclaimed singer/songwriter Clelia Adams has been under the radar for some years due to ill health. She was finally diagnosed with a brain tumour, thankfully benign and operated on successfully in March 2018.
Clelia sincerely thanks the Australian and International country music community for keeping her music alive on the airwaves with Back In Baby's Arms, a re-release from 2005 on her new CLASSIC HITS CD, a charting hit all over again in Australia and Europe in 2018.
As Clelia recovers her health and voice, she has decided to re-release one of her favourite songs of all time, Honky Tonk Stardust Cowboy, also taken from her CLASSIC HITS CD, which has 22 of her hits songs from the past 17 years. It was a massive international hit for Clelia in 2010, reaching #2 on the ECMA chart in Europe, #10 on Country Tracks chart, & #2 on Hot FM Mildura chart.
The song has an interesting history. Recorded by Lefty Frizzell in the 60's, Jonathan Edwards in the 70's and George Strait in the 80s. It was not a hit for any of them. Songwriter Darryl Staedtler contacted Clelia at the time to thank her for finally making Honky Tonk Stardust Cowboy a hit for him, and to compliment her on her vocals, saying "If you'd been around in the 60's, you'd have given Loretta Lyn a run for her money". High praise indeed!
