"The fact that her music seems timeless brings a whole new group in every generation that keeps her alive. Her career was a small amount of years, and she had lots of accolades, but I don't think she imagined the things that would come after she died."

Patsy Cline's daughter, Julie Fudge



It's Friday night. Time to unwind with our regular Friday night feature on This Just In.

The weekend has finally arrived.

The sun is about to set.

The evening sky has erupted. 

Let's smooth our way into Saturday and Sunday.


From cmt.com:

Patsy Cline was tired, battling a cold and aching to see her kids when her plane crashed in Camden, Tenn., the rainy evening of March 5, 1963. Singer-songwriter Roger Miller, who was among the first to find the wreckage early the next morning, reported that the plane’s single engine lay at the bottom of a large crater, suggesting that the Piper Comanche had plunged to earth at full speed.

Dying with Cline that day were fellow Grand Ole Opry stars Hawkshaw Hawkins and Cowboy Copas and the plane’s pilot, Randy Hughes, who was also Cline’s manager and Copas’ son-in-law.


Patsy Cline was 30 years old when she died. Tonight, we remember that great country voice that crossed into pop.

From 1948-1958, Arthur Godfrey hosted “Arthur Godfrey’s Talent Scouts” on television. The “scouts” would bring their discoveries to a NY theater to perform before a live studio audience. At the end of each program the audience would pick the winner through the use of an applause meter.

Pat Boone, Tony Bennett, Eddie Fisher, Connie Francis, Leslie Uggams, Lenny Bruce, Steve Lawrence, Connie Francis, and Roy Clark all appeared on Godfrey’s show.

On January 21, 1957, Patsy Cline’s mother, Hilda Hensley was the scout. Cline, a young vocalist who actually had been singing for some time did a recent recording of hers. Godfrey’s staff insisted Cline dump the cowgirl attire. So she appeared in a cocktail dress. Cline was a winner and went on to stardom with this, her very first hit.

Goodnight everyone!


 "I understand that artists and critics make a big deal over the Grammys. But when I go to my shows and I'm selling out arenas in London, and when I'm in Australia and Japan, there aren't any Grammys there. There are human beings who I've touched. There are human beings who are inspired by me, who I love dearly. And that's what my career is based on."
Nicky Minaj

Goodnight everyone!


"I just keep thinking back to when you're in second grade and you sing at your talent show the first time and people joke around and they say, 'Oh, maybe we'll see you at the Grammys someday.' That just seems like an impossible dream. I just feel like I'm standing here accepting an impossible dream right now and I thank you so much for that."

Taylor Swift, accepting the Grammy for best country album in 2010
