It Wasn’t God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels
This timeless tune was Wells’ brave response to Hank Thompson’s hit “The Wild Side of Life,” giving cheating men some of the blame for causing women to stray. “It Wasn’t God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels” raced to the top of country charts and helped Wells earn a female artist’s first, top-ranked single. The record even crossed over, peaking at No. 27 on Billboard’s pop chart.
