    Biography

    Originally named Charlotte, Charly McClain was given her masculine
    moniker by neighborhood friends in Memphis, and she also used it when
    she started playing hotel lounges. When Epic Records decided it sounded
    catchier than Charlotte, it became a permanent professional banner.
    McClain's father had tuberculosis when she was eight, and, since she was
    under age for visitation rights at the hospital, she had to communicate with
    him through a tape recorder. That inspired her interest in recording, and by
    age 17 she was a regular on the club circuit. Signed to her first recording
    contract in 1976, McClain's distinct vocal sound provided an edge in
    recognizability — as did her appearance. She hit country's Top Ten for the
    first time in 1978 with "That's What You Do to Me," followed up with 1980's
    "Men," and hit the top spot one year later with "Who's Cheatin' Who." She
    stayed in the upper reaches during 1982 with "Dancing Your Memory Away"
    and "The Very Best Is You," then hit number one again in 1983 with her
    Mickey Gilley duet "Paradise Tonight." McClain married former soap star
    Wayne Massey in 1984, and their own duet ("With Just One Look in Your
    Eyes") reached number five. Her last number one came with 1985's "Radio
    Heart," but she continued to chart until her last recording came in 1989.
