The Pointer Sisters - "Fairytale"

From Youtube:
The song "Fairytale" written by Anita and Bonnie Pointer reached number 13 on the pop charts, and number 37 on the country charts. Based on this success the group was invited to Nashville, Tennessee where they achieved the rare distinction of becoming the first black female singers to perform at the Grand Ole Opry. In 1975 the Pointer Sisters won their first Grammy Award for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal for "Fairytale," and Anita and Bonnie were nominated as songwriters for the Grammy Award for Best Country Song. The song would later be covered by artist such as Elvis Presley.
