Goldie Hill (b. Argolda Voncille Hill January 11, 1933- February 24, 2005)
was an American Country Music Singer. She was one of the first women in Country Music, becoming one of the first women to reach the #1 spot on the Country Music Charts, with her 1953 hit "I Let The Stars Get In My Eyes". Along with Kitty Wells, Goldie Hill set the standard for future women in Country Music, like Patsy Cline, Skeeter Davis, Loretta Lynn, and Dolly Parton.
