This U.S. singer is now in her 80s and she still performs.

When I was just a small child, she did a cover of a song that was first recorded by a cowboy a few years earlier. It became a hit.

1. Who is the singer?
2. What is the song?

Hint #1 - Dec8: If you get the "Cowboy" who first recoded the song, the rest will be easy.

With the age I was going to say Jean Shepard. But google says she was born in 1933.

Slewfoot got it. Patti Page - "The Tennessee Waltz". She recorded in 1950, three years after Cowboy Copas recorded it.

Here birth name is Clara Ann Fowler.

Here she is doing it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Ek3eCbfqp0

Yes, we had thought of Patti Page and the Tennessee Waltz, but hadn't got to the 'cowboy' section, so hadn't included it in the answer - we had to go to town, so left it at that for the time being, until we got back just now.
Have this youtube in my video collection
