NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) — Iconic singer-songwriter K.T. Oslin has passed away at the age of 78.

The "80's ladies" singer won Grammys, CMA Awards and ACM Awards throughout her career.

Oslin was honored at the CMA Awards in 1988 for Female Vocalist of the Year and Song of the Year. She was voted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2018.

“K.T. Oslin had one of the most soulful voices in Country Music and was a strong influence for women with her hit ‘80's Ladies’. I was fortunate to work with K.T. on a number of television shows in the late 90s. She was always gracious to the crews and up-and-coming talent performing alongside her. She truly had one of the best voices in the history of our format. Our thoughts go out to her loved ones at this difficult time," said Sarah Trahern, CEO of the Country Music Association.

Oslin was also inducted into the Texas Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2014.
