Page started singing way back in 1947, becoming the first successful artist for Mercury Records. She'll likely be remembered most for the tracks "Tennessee Waltz" and "(How Much Is That) Doggie in the Window."

The artist achieved 19 gold singles and 14 platinum singles over the course of an impressive career, while also starring on her own TV show.

In 1979, Page was earned the Pioneer Award by the Academy of Country Music and she inducted into the Grammy Awards Hall of Fame nine years later.

The singer is survived by her son, Daniel O'Curran, daughter, Kathleen Ginn and sister, Peggy Layton. We send them our thoughts and prayers.
