Married to Rodney Crowell at one time, does anyone know wether or not they had children? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.128.43.150 (talk) 19:07, 26 May 2010 (UTC)

Try reading the article. It's in there. Cresix (talk) 04:07, 7 August 2010 (UTC)

Questioning Categorisation[edit]

The 'American Atheist' tag does not have sources in the text, and if it did have sources in the source material, it has been removed since citation; ergo, it seems that even if this category is correct, if she is in fact atheist, there are not references cited to support this, per "Encyclopedic content must be verifiable". I'm proposing either verification or removal. Thank you. Fraoch Dubh (talk) 00:47, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

GA review (see here for criteria)
  1. It is reasonably well written.
    a (prose): b (MoS for lead, layout, word choice, fiction, and lists):
    Number signs generally aren't allowed in text; for instance, #1 should be written out as No. 1 or number one. Otherwise, I see no formatting issues.
  2. It is factually accurate and verifiable.
    a (references): b (citations to reliable sources): c (OR):
    See below; I had several issues with the citation, but adding them in bullet form breaks the GAList template.
  3. It is broad in its coverage.
    a (major aspects): b (focused):
    I don't think that the article discusses her 1980s material fully enough. This was the peak of her career, and it could easily be split into album-by-album detail. I was able to go into album-by-album detail on GAs for far less prolific artists, such as Joe Diffie. Also, does she have a middle name? If so, it should be added to the article.
  4. It follows the neutral point of view policy.
    Fair representation without bias:
  5. It is stable.
    No edit wars, etc.:
  6. It is illustrated by images, where possible and appropriate.
    a (images are tagged and non-free images have fair use rationales): b (appropriate use with suitable captions):
    Right now five images may seem like overkill, but if the article is lengthened per my suggestion, it'd probably be better off.
  7. Overall:
    Pass/Fail:
    The article still has a long way to go. As I said, use citation templates, weed out the bad references, and add more information on the segment for her 1980s career. I could probably take a whack at the expansion myself at some point.
Issues with sourcing
  • Source #4 (CountryWorks.com) is a 404.
  • Source #7 (Musician Guide) has been deemed unreliable in past GANs because the site lacks an editorial policy.
  • Source #17 (Legacy Recordings) seems to be just a directory listing. Could a better source be found?
  • I removed one source that was a Wikipedia mirror.
  • Source #21 (WNYC.org) is also a 404.
  • Some sources are formatted as bare links. I would also recommend using citation templates such as {{Cite web}} for neatness.
  • Finally, there was an interview in the external links which I removed, since it was almost singlehandedly spammed on several articles.
