It was early in 1981 that she scored her first number one hit, “Who’s Cheatin Who.”  Her hit making career peaked in 1985 with the smash number one hit “Radio Heart” and two top ten duets with her husband , Wayne Massey, who was an actor. She also recorded duets with Mickey Gilley including the number one hit, “Paradise Tonight” a number one hit in August of 1983.
