Sandy Posey – All Hung Up İn Your Green Eyes
Sandy Posey (born June 18, 1944) is an American popular singer, who enjoyed success in the 1960s with singles such as her 1966 recording of Martha Sharpe’s composition, “Single Girl.” She is often described as a country singer, although, like Skeeter Davis (to whom she has been frequently compared) her output has varied.
Later in her career, the term “countrypolitan,” associated with the “Nashville sound”, was sometimes applied. Posey had four hit singles in the United States, three of which peaked at number 12 in the sales charts.
Sandy Posey was born Sandra Lou Posey in Jasper, Alabama. She graduated from high school in West Memphis, AR in 1962. Posey obtained work as a session singer, after she was recommended by an aunt to an acquaintance who worked in television.
In addition to working as a receptionist at a studio in Memphis, she took part in recordings across the Deep South and appeared, for example, on recording sessions produced by Lincoln “Chips” Moman for Elvis Presley and on Percy Sledge’s “When a Man Loves a Woman” (a number one hit in the US in 1966). Other singers whom she backed included Joe Tex, Bobby Goldsboro and Tommy Roe.
