Song of the Day: Jeannie C. Riley, “Harper Valley PTA”

Country and gospel chanteuse Jeannie C. Riley is 77 years young today. She’s most popular for her 1968 crossover hit, “Harper Valley PTA,” which reached #1 on both the Hot 100 and Country charts in the US as well as #1 on the Pop and Country charts in Canada.
