Goldie Hill (January 11, 1933–February 24, 2005), born Argolda Voncile Hill, was an American country music singer. She was one of the first women in country music, becoming one of the first women to reach the top of the country music charts with her number-one 1953 hit, "I Let the Stars Get In My Eyes". Along with Kitty Wells, she set the standard for future women in country music, such as Patsy Cline, Skeeter Davis, Loretta Lynn and Dolly Parton.
The Texas-born Hill might have had a long career in country music had she stuck with it. Some music critics said she had a strong and twangy voice that can be heard in some other country singers of the 1960s like Loretta Lynn and Tammy Wynette. With the success of Kitty Wells and her massive 1952 hit "It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels", Hill was able to pursue her own career after record companies realized from the success of Wells' hit that women could indeed sell records.
