Question > Music

What singer had a number 1 hit in 1973, but is perhaps better known from her Emmy-award winning roles on a sketch comedy show, and the subsequent spin-off sitcom?

Answer: Vicki Lawrence. The song was "The Night the Lights Went out in Georgia". The Emmy was for "The Carol Burnett Show", from which her show "Mama's Family" was spun-off.
