"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

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.
