Length of Suspension[edit]

I'm working on merging the two articles and note an inconsistency as to how long she was suspended from the Opry. This article said two years, the Mary Frances Penick article said two years, the AP obituary says "more than a year". I've deleted the time reference here until someone can clarify.

I merged the article here with the one under her real name. Mostly were the same, so I only needed to move a few grafs. Please let me know if I deleted something. PedanticallySpeaking 16:12, Sep 23, 2004 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Essential-Skeeter-Davis-28sq-300.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Essential-Skeeter-Davis-28sq-300.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

potential sources[edit]

Just dumping these here for now, but they look like they should be able to provide sources for much of the content in the article. -- TRPoD aka The Red Pen of Doom 02:00, 11 November 2013 (UTC)


Did she write these songs? One looks in vain through the article for mention of who did. (talk) 12:32, 1 June 2017 (UTC)

Referenced elsewhere[edit]

Skeeter Davis is mentioned in the Bethesda video game Fallout 4 and the song, "The End of the World" is played in-game by a game radio station named Diamond City Radio. The DJ mentions her name and introduces the song. There is an album "Diamond City Radio" available on Amazon. There is also a Wiki that discusses this music. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Retrogamergirl (talkcontribs) 15:16, 6 June 2018 (UTC)


Text: "This song was likely the first popular example of Sound on Sound where the erase magnet was disabled and the artist sang along with the recording or the original recording was mixed with the live artist voice and re-recorded, Therefore, it sounds like a duet in places." not only is idle speculation but ignores the fact that Les Paul was using the technique over a decade earlier. Also it's an erase head, not a "magnet", and that's not how it works anyway. It couldn't work that way. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:16, 11 June 2020 (UTC)
