It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels 1952
Written by J.D. Miller

Kitty Wells

"It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels" is a 1952 country song written by J.D. Miller, and originally recorded by Kitty Wells. It was an answer song to the Hank Thompson hit "The Wild Side of Life."

The song — which blamed unfaithful men for creating unfaithful women — became the first No. 1 Billboard country hit for a solo female artist. In addition to helping establish Wells as the country music's first major female star, "It Wasn't God ..." paved the way for other female artists, particularly Loretta Lynn and Tammy Wynette, and songs where women defied the typical stereotype of being submissive to men and putting up with their oft-infidel ways.
