Country clanger on Pointless

Typical of the BBC's lukewarm attention to Country musicdetail, they dropped a clanger on this evening's "Pointless" TV quiz series. The final question asked for Female members of the Country Music Hall Of Fame. Whilst the contestants offered knowledgeable, if incorrect, guesses at Nanci Griffith, KT Oslin and Mary Chapin Carpenter, the pointless answers included Emmylou Harris, Reba McEntire and Connie B.Gay!
Connie B Gay, elected in 1980, was a radio broadcaster, artist manager, and founding president of the Country Music Association, and very much a male. Oops!
