Priscilla Mitchell Dies

CATEGORY:  News/Obituary

Priscilla Hubbard, known professionally as Priscilla Mitchell has died, just days after her 73rd birthday.

Mitchell had a minor career in country music, only hitting the country top ten once.  That one time was a classic, however:  she sang the woman's part in the 1965 #1 hit "Yes, Mr. Peters" with Roy Drusky.   While recording country during that era she also recorded 60's rock on the Smash label under the pseudonym "Sadina."  Her song "I Want That Boy" was arranged by Ray Stevens.

Mitchell's country music life was more behind the scenes.  In 1959 she married a young guitarist/singer/songwriter named Jerry Reed Hubbard.  When he began recording he used his first and middle names professionally.  They were married until Reed's death from emphysema in 2008.

No cause of death was listed; however, the family requested donations in her memory to a Nashville Hospice.
