The "Wonder Woman" look is probably due to the wig that she wore to cover the scarring that she suffered in an almost-fatal 1961 auto accident, and the headband that she wore to relieve pressure on her forehead, if the Wikipedia bio is to be believed. "Crazy" was her first hit after the accident.

For some "atypical" current country music, try Robert Earl Keen's "The Party Never Ends". Situations like 'playing at the World Bluegrass Festival on a handful of cheap methamphetamines, and coming in second' because "we could play faster than anybody else in the competition."

Re: the ribbon around Patsy's head

Actually, this was a popular hair style in the early 60s. If you will look around, you can find photos of Jackie Kennedy, Elizabeth Taylor, and many high-profile women wearing ribbons in this way.

Love the faux fireplace Hollywood set design. I can hear it now... "It's a country song. Whataya mean what country! This one moron. Whataya got? Steer horns and a rifle?! OK, sure. Any thing beer related? I here they like beer. Steins?! Are those from this country? You sure? We're running out of time, just toss them up there."
