RIP: Precious Bryant, blues singer

From the Ledger Enquirer (via Dust-to-Digital):

Blues singer Precious Bussey Bryant, who grew up in a family of musicians and honed her craft at country get-togethers, died Saturday at The Medical Center in Columbus. She was 71.

“She was always cheerful,” said Zola Bussey Goodwin, her sister and a member of the Bussey Sisters before Bryant found a niche playing the guitar and singing the blues.

Some of the popular sounds from Bryant include “Black Rat,” “I Can’t Stand To See You Go,” “You can Have My Husband But Please Don’t Mess With My Man,” and a version of “When the Saints Go Marching In.”
