After attending the 50th Annual CMA awards I was inspired to start a series to spotlight the very artists I grew up listening to, the artists of yesterday that forged the path, are the idols of today’s country artists and the ones that have left a legacy of great country music. Today, and the second of the series, is about Patsy Cline.
When I think Patsy I think listening to the smooth southern voice of a great songstress. Of hearing these vocals play through a radio in our home growing up- of hearing her songs, just the instrumental tracks playing as my mom would sing along to the music. When I think “Crazy” an image of my mom behind a mic is vivid in my memories. Mom will always one of her biggest fans! I am thankful for her passing down the love of a talented singer to me!
Patsy Cline always and forever will be known as one of country music’s greats, charting songs like “Walkin’ After Midnight”, “Crazy” and “She’s Got You”. Its heartbreaking to know such talent had such a short career, Pasty died in a plane crash in 1963 only 6 years after her big break. We are fortunate enough that her music transcends generations and continues to touch the lives of our up and coming country gals!
