In Ottawa, there is a band, that features an almost twin of Patsy. Even with an almost identical voice!

I'm wondering just like Frank C. do Charlie Dick and Julie Fudge have an e-mail address? If so, I'd like to write them both and ask them some questions and just talk with them, Per if you know, please let us know, or if they don't want to give out their e-mail let us know, either way let us know. I would also like to comment on "That's My Desire" it too is not one of my Cline favs but all the Cline has to do is open her mouth and I fall out!!!!!! She could sing the "Star Spangled Banner" or "Take me out to the ballgame" and it would sound original, I don't care what she sings, I like it. She does everything with such class and originality you don't see much of that these days, they don't hold a candle to the Cline!!! Whether she sings a song I like or dislike I still like the way she sings it, I'll listen to it just because it's her voice and no one elses on that recording, that's what makes it so great. Someone needs to get back to me about my question on the shows, if someone knows please let me know. I anxiously await to hear if any of the Patsy shows will be playing in Birmingham, AL so I can go and see it. Thanks a bunch!!!!!!

There I was, laffin' my buns off at Frank's comments, then -- Skeeter Davis! *The* Skeeter Davis? I choked on my coca-cola! Why, in 1967 at a fair, I won a 45rpm of her song, "Timothy". And she looked just beautiful on "Women of Country" the other night. What an honor to have her visit this site! I hope she returns to tell us all she remembers about our sweetheart Patsy! PS - Frank, it's not time for a new song of the week, it ain't Friday yet!:-)

SONG OF THE WEEK COMMENTS: I say the song of the week is only official when Lisa Flood says it is... But having said that, I will comment on "That's My Desire"... It is probably one of my least favorite Patsy songs... It doesn't seem to fit with her other songs, and it seems as if she doesn't like it much either. Almost like she's really not into it too much. Of course, Patsy not being "into" a song still blows away other singers' masterpieces... But I think "That's My Desire" ranks down there. What are some other LEAST favorites? Lisa Flood, we're ready for you to pick the next song of the week. In the meantime, does anyone know if Charlie Dick or Julie Fudge have E-Mail addresses? Cheers! Frank C.

Does anyone know if any of the shows about Patsy will be in my area? I live in Tuscaloosa, AL, in case some of you don't know or ever heard of this place, its the home of the University of Alabama Crimson Tide! Roll Tide!! and the closest place to us that offers big concerts is Birmingham. I have seen where alot of you know a great deal about these shows and I would like to be able to see one, and I don't think I could travel anytime to see one, so I figured it'd better be close to home. I long to see any of the shows, I've heard alot of talk about the "Always-Patsy Cline" and would like to see it or anything I could, but I don't know if they would have any shows in Birmingham. Is there anyone who knows??? I get alot of information off these pages about Patsy and I see how many people are constantly writing, Lisa, Amber, Frank C., Jim Walker, its people like you and Per of course who keep Patsy's legacy alive! I will also volunteer a part in it also!!! I'm a big fan!!! Let's also do all we can to get Patsy's star put on the walk of fame at Opryland park, I've been out there last summer and I walked around looking for Patsy's name and was very disappointed it wasn't there, my friend that was with me said maybe they don't put up stars that have passed on, I said well they have one put up for Hank Williams, Sr. and he has passed on. Not that I'm taking away from Hank, I think Hank is great also, but I would like to see the same gesture for Patsy!!!! Also, I've read the comments made about Patsy's hometown and all I can say is they ought to be ashamed of theirselves, it would be an honor and a privledge to know that I resided in the town she grew up in and I don't think any of those people realize just how lucky they are, and to Hilda all I can say is "You go girl!" I would still be upset with that town also, but I guess you have to go on and try to deal with let downs the best way you know how. She can still give 'em hell about it, but as long as she can still walk around with her head up high and know how many people love her daughter even to this day, Winchester, VA may be only one state but this entire nation and other countries around the world love Patsy always!!!! Thanks for all the music you have left for us and other generations to come to love, we love you and may your songs and legacy never die!!!!!

Amber, baby doll, are you saying... are you saying we should have *two* songs of the week?! Shoot, I was hoping to drag this thing out for at least a couple of years! But if you insist, "That's My Desire" is not one of my tip-top favorites, but it is so romantic! Kinda dreamy! Also, nice to hear a Patsy song about 2 people who love each other instead of love-gone-wrong!

I am a recreation director at a home for the elderly, and this month I will be doing a program on Patsy Cline. I was looking for information on Patsy and found your site. You gave me lots of input that I did not have, and this will definitely add to my program. I am truly a Patsy Cline fan and have been for quite some time, I sing Patsy's songs and love them all. I will be singing four of her songs for my program. This site will go in my favorite places list. Thank you!

Hi! I'd just like to thank Lisa Flood for e-mailing me the words to "Never No More". The reason I didn't know the words is 'coz I've only heard the song once, it was on an episode of "Space Above and Beyond". An interesting way to be introduced to Patsy Cline, don't you think? Anyway, thankyou once again. Jennie Spencer

Hello again. Talked w/ Charlie Dick last nite about the lady singing "Lonely Street" w/ Patsy. He could not remember her name but said that is was recorded in CA around 1989. He said that is really was not supposed to be released. The leasing company messed up. About our song of the week. Just wished The Opry Musuem had a full kinescope for viewing. The 45 second version is too short. Some new news: Amy Barrett w/ the Camden, TN Chamber of Commerece emailed. They will have their Second annual Music Fest June 28-29. Patsy will not be featured as much as last year. Fan club members will try to be there again this year and have something going. Contact me or Amy ( for more info. Amy also has a great tribute booklet w/ lots of rare pictures thanks to Bill and Linda Culver of Battlecreek, MI. Chamber phone # 901-584-8395. Happy Easter and Always Jimmy Walker 3-30-97

SONG OF THE WEEK THOUGHTS... I think "Why Can't He Be You?" is perhaps one of the most underrated Patsy songs ever released. In fact, I think it is FAR superior to the song "She's Got You" which went to number one! What do you think happened with this song that it never made it far on the charts? Frank C.

I recently "discovered" Patsy Cline in an odd manner. I watch a lot of TV and saw that AT&T Worldnet commercial with the two teenagers coming home after a date. Then they are sending each other love notes (via worldnet of course). I just dug the song playing over the commercial. I then went on a mission to find out what that song was. I posted a message in the Music Arts forum on CompuServe and a gentleman thought that it might be "Walkin' After Midnight" by the late Patsy Cline, though he had never seen the commercial. I asked my mother and though she couldn't remember at first, she recalled it when I mentioned that it might be Patsy Cline. What a great song! I managed to capture the commercial on tape the other day when I was taping a TV show that I wanted to watch. I've run that tape over and over again! After browseing thru Per's site, I see that there are two versions of the song; a mono version done in 1956 and a stereo version that was done in August of 1961. Does anybody know which version was used in the commercial? I checked some of the various on-line CD sources and there seem to be dozens of PC CDs out there can anybody recommend one for me to try?

Well, it's Friday, and as day follows night, you know I'll be here! I'm always intrigued when someone asks for Patsy's lyrics, coz she sings them so clearly! Of all of Patsy's songs, there are just 2 lines in "Stupid Cupid" that I have trouble understanding, but that's coz it's a fast song. However, Jennie S., I will happily jot down the lyrics to "Never No More" & e-mail them to you -- I like that song very much myself! Eva B., what a sweet message! I'm sure I have seen fans from Germany post here before, perhaps they will see your message & contact you. Many American fans would LOVE to know where you obtained a copy of "Sweet Dreams"! Mine is just a recording off of Cinemax. Jim W., PLEASE tell me where to listen for a Patsy screw-up in a live recording, coz I haven't heard it yet! What a rarity it would be! Here's our song o' the week, kids: "Why Can't He Be You." Oh, that's a pretty one. A weeper. Do y'all like it, too?

I've been listening Patsy's tune "Crazy" at the first time 4 years ago in the movie "Desert hearts ". In this former times I don't know who are singing this song or who is Patsy Cline... but it was love in the first moment !!! I`ve been interested to know so much about country music and above all about Patsy Cline since this time. Unfortunately, Patsy Cline is not enough well-known in Germany... for example in music shops. That's why I had many efforts to buy all her tune`s or to receive informations about Patsy all over the world. So I'm very proud because I've got about Patsy as follow:

=>original 4 CD produced by "The country music foundation" in 1991.
=>CD "Patsy Cline -The birth of a star" with 17 previously unreleased classic performances (1996 Razor & Tie Entertainment)
=>3 CD (Volume 1 till 3 ) from Rhino Records Inc. in 1989 "Walkin' Dreams", "Hungry for Love" and "The Rockin`Side"
=>3 video cassettes "The real Patsy Cline" from Cabin Fever Entertainment Inc. in 1989 + "Remembering Patsy Cline " from Hallway Entertainment (both with interesting home movies about Patsy... it's great to see Patsy in original!!!) and the movie "Sweet dreams" with Jessica Lange as Patsy
=>an english writing book from Margaret Jones / 1994 "Patsy - The life and times of Patsy".

I can not change informations about Patsy or I can not tell something with someone other fan of Patsy Cline in Germany. It seems the real Patsy Cline fans are only living in the USA!!! Would you like to help me to find contacts with other people who loved Patsy Cline like you and me!!! Please, write me! Patsy will always live in our hearts!!!... "Always and forever"!!! Please, visit my homepage with remembering sides of Patsy Cline.
Yours sincerely, Eva Blaschke

If this gets sent out, I would just like to say - "GOD bless her family". P.S. I sure would like to know the location of The Shenandoah Memorial Park - were Patsy rests. It's one of my dreams (or goals) to visit her! THANXS,B.B.

Frank, Lisa and Amber, my two cents on the "Bill Bailey" from "Sweet Dreams". I think I read that Jessica Lange may have sung that tune. They needed it for the movie. Frank, Patsy was known to cover up screw ups by the band. I have heard a live version were Patsy messes up and the Jordinaires cover her up. On the second verse she gets right. Working w/ the many bands Patsy used she had to be able to cover up mistakes. Only true fans even notice this. On the Kountry Krackers they have a reunion show over Labor Day in Winchester, VA. Bud Armel is still alive and playing. He's great. I had the pleasure of meeting him at his home this past September. He repairs and make guitars. He performs for only special occiasions. For more info on him try e-mailing the Winchester Chamber of Commerence, attn Julie Armel. Julie is related to Bud through marriage and is the Director for the Cham. of Comm. Pull up the Winchester page and email her through them ( Again Always Jimmy Walker PS. I had a chance to the see the AT&T commercial, It is great!

Lex, KY - Sunday, March 23, 1997 at 18:49:04 (MET)
Well, this is more like it! Lotsa activity going on here! Amber, I must confess that I was merely being hopeful in thinking that the "Bill Bailey" in the movie might be Patsy herself. Even the first time I watched "Sweet Dreams", I remember thinking, "Wow, that doesn't sound like Patsy very much" when "Bill Bailey" was sung. After reading what y'all have posted here, I'm *mighty* suspicious now! I like the film "Sweet Dreams" because of its attempt to honor Patsy, but it seems to be filled with so many falsehoods, and it left out so many important aspects! I guess they just wanted to focus on Patsy & Charlie, and even *that* seems mostly fabricated! Actually, I ended up being more impressed with Ed Harris than with Jessica Lange. One of my favorite Ed Harris moments is when he says, "I'll shoot my toe off -- I ain't goin'!" Then the next thing you see, he's on a bus! P.S. Congrats to Kristy!
Lisa Flood <>
- Sunday, March 23, 1997 at 17:53:17 (MET)
Amber, it's definitely not Jessica Lange singing "Bill Bailey" in the movie... And Lisa Flood, I too listened to the live version on CD#3 and I definitely think there are differences between that one and the one in the movie. Only Julie Fudge can supply us with the answer. I also wonder if Julie feels that the movie "Sweet Dreams" accurately portayed her parents? Lisa Flood, regarding your SONG OF THE WEEK, it almost seems as if Patsy realizes that the band screwed up and she attempts to cover up for them, doing a pretty good job of it! Also, the song was one of Patsy's favorites. In fact, I believe that while that was the "B side" of Walkin After Midnight, Patsy wanted it to be the A side! And regarding bands, what was the deal with the Kountry Krackers band? Frank C.

1) Kristie, Many congratulations. It is too cool! Patsy keeps helping and moving us all. I am glad I could been a part. Please let the fan club know what you have accomplished! Have you made the papers?

2) Lisa Flood, You'll soon have another version of "Poor Man's Roses" when MCA releases Cimmaron Ballroom. It was an early favorite of mine.

3) Another acheivement for Patsy is the "American Eagle Award". This entitles the holder to be an automatic member of Country Music Halls of Fame in ea. 50 states and 9 foreing countries. Other performers honored are E. Tubb and W Pierce. This note is from Ann Durand, APC Mid Atlantic Rep.

4) This note from Mel Dick, fan club mgr. "The P C Story" album is now gold and platinum. This makes 5 gold rec. and 2 platinum. These last two items are from the lastest newsletter. If you're a member you can keep up on things like this on Patsy. Try to join.

One last thing, April 3 is around the corner and the fans can't wait to be in Nashville for the Premiere of "Just a Closer Walk...". More news on this in April. "I must make up mind..." Always Jim Walker

Hi everyone! I have a comment about the song "Bill Bailey" that was in the movie "Sweet Dreams." I don't think that Patsy sang that version... You can tell a MAJOR difference between Patsy's voice and the voice of the person that sings that song... I think that it's Jessica Lange that is singing it, actually I think I read somewhere that Jessica sang that song herself! Well, there's my two cents worth :o) If anyone wants to e-mail me about this or anything else, please feel free! Bye for now :o)

I am so shocked to see so many people who love Patsy as much as I do. I have always felt that Patsy was my friend. I can always find a song of hers that fits the emotions I am feeling at that particular time. Her songs always make me feel better and are inspiring. It does my heart good to see that others appreciate her as I do. I must admit I felt some resentment towards LeAnn Rimes when her song "Blue" came out and at the same time I couldn't get away from that song. In my heart I always knew it belonged to Patsy. I just found out that it actually was written for Patsy. I have a feeling that if Patsy had ever gotten around to sing "Blue" it would have been her absolute greatest hit. I recently saw "Always" and it stole my heart. I also have the movie "Sweet Dreams" on video along with all of Patsy's Cd's and tapes. Patsy Cline is the absolute greatest singer of all time. She lives on forever in our hearts and through her music.

Frank C., you just amaze me! First you present us with the same "Blue Christmas" question I myself had been pondering since having watched "Sweet Dreams," and now you present us with the "Bill Bailey" question that has been bugging me! Per may be correct about the live "Bill Bailey" found on the 4-CD set -- I've been listening to it closely to determine if it could be, and I must admit that in the film AND in the live version, Patsy sings "the whole night lo-o-o-o-ong" and "take it home"... can't wait to hear Ms. Fudge's answer! Now, won't someone comment about my song o' the week? Are Patsy's fans *really* so shy??!!

Lisa Flood, I hope I'm not taking away from your "Patsy Song Of the Week"... but I have my own Song Of The Week, and a trivia question that perhaps, only Julie Fudge can answer... In the movie, "Sweet Dreams" Jessica Lange (as Patsy) sings an ultra fast, almost rockin' version of "Bill Bailey (Won't You Please Come Home)... I've never heard that on ANY Patsy CD or LP... Where did it come from? Thanks to Julie Fudge, we know that Jamie Ryan (Charlie Dick's Second Wife) sang "Blue Christmas" and "Rollin In My Sweet Baby's Arms" in the movie. I know it IS Patsy singing "Bill Bailey" in the movie... but where else is that song available? Thanks! Frank

Comment: I haven't had the time to listen to the recording in the movie, but couldn't it be the recording that was made at "The Dixie Jubilee" in East Point, Georgia, on Dec 2, 1961, and that is on the 3rd CD of the 4 CD set? /Per
This was so nice, anyone can see, you put your all into it. She was the best. Thanks

Surely there *must* be some of you "dogies" out there who want to talk about Patsy's songs! I continue to believe that one of the great failings of the film "Sweet Dreams" is the fact that we never got a grasp of how Patsy felt about her music -- it was treated as a peripheral thing. I wonder just how much of that dang movie I can believe, anyway! But here goes, another "song of the week" for us... reaching into the hat... aha! "A Poor Man's Roses (or a Rich Man's Gold)". I think I have 3 versions of this song! I wasn't crazy about it at first, but then it grew on me. Patsy said it was a song that was kind of true to her life. One note of interest: on the 4-CD set, when Patsy sings it live, the boys in the band don't play "will be memories of paradise" the way Patsy usually does, but she is quick to grasp their shortcoming, and "dumbs it down" for them the next time that verse comes around, sings it their way. I'm surprised to learn that Patsy never had her own band! Any comments??

YES!!! I have seen the commercials on TV using Patsy's too! I remember a while back Wal-Mart used "I Fall to Pieces" and then recently I saw a gasoline commercial (I think Amoco) using "So Wrong", and then the other day I saw the AT&T commercial with "Walking After Midnight"... The network aired that commercial about 2-3 times an hour that night! I have to admit it was the first commercial in a long time that I could watch over and over and not get sick of it! I made such a fuss about it that my roomates thought I had lost my mind... but I DIDN'T CARE! It is so overwhelmingly awesome to see and hear America going "Crazy" over our late Country Diva over 30 years since her passing! Patsy Forever!

The music is, of course, fabulous, and the show revolves around a real-life fan who corresponded with Patsy during the height of her career. Thought you'd like to know.

I, too, have noticed Patsy in several commercials on TV recently. I've seen the internet commercial. I've also seen the gasoline commercial that has Patsy singing "So Wrong". It's great to see her in this "new frontier". You know she's something special when she can pull on your heart strings and make you want to buy gas all in the same song!!!!!

PATSY ON TV COMMERCIALS!!! Has anyone else seen the commericial for the Internet (I THINK it's AT&T Wordnet) that has Patsy singing, "Walkin After Midnight" in the background? It's actually a great commercial, and actually has Patsy's voice from 1960 advertising THE INTERNET in 1997, some 37 years later... The music sounds as new and fresh as if it were recorded yesterday! Does anyone know how a big company gets the rights to use Patsy's voice? It was also on a Wal-Mart commercial a while back. Anyone ever think of starting a Patsy Fan E-Mail Mailing List? Frank

Choosing the top Patsy Cline songs is almost impossible! I have NEVER listened to one I didn't like. I was not quite 3 years old when Patsy Cline died, but was fortunate to be introduced to her music at a very early age. I thank my parents for that, and I have passed along her music to my own boys. I have a collection of her songs... many albums and also a CD collection... Did she ever record any Christmas songs? If not, does anyone know why? And if she did, does anyone know where I can find them? Below is a list of my favorite dozen. Man, this was tough! Any of them could be my Number One favorite on any given day!!!

1. "Walking after midnight"
2. "I can see an angel"
3. "If I could see the world"
4. "I fall to pieces"
5. "Sweet dreams (of you)"
6. "Yes, I understand"
7. "Crazy"
8. "You belong to me"
9. "When you need a laugh"
10. "Life's railway to heaven"
11. "Just a closer walk with Thee"
12. "Let the teardrops fall"

Thanks! Blair Terry

I just received my 4-CD Collection & words cannot describe my excitement! Right now I can't stop humming "Stupid Cupid." There's not enough space here to express my joy at finally owning this set! Recently, I saw a review of Patsy's overall career & the critic felt that Patsy was kind of stiff when it came to singing rockabilly. Is it me, am I biased, or is this guy crazy? I never get the impression that PC is EVER ill-at-ease in ANY song!!! Well, it's time to pick another song of the week to discuss (y'all must not have very strong opinions about "You're Stronger Than Me"!). The pick for this week's discussion is.... "Just Out of Reach." Oh, I do love this one. The first impression that comes to mind is that Patsy's voice on this tune sounds so incredibly, totally clear. Any comments, y'all?

Hello, again! Got the e-mail about the move and wanted to visit again. INCREDIBLY WELL DONE! Also, a few notes: I'd like to contact Julie Fudge regarding her entry about the voice of Patsy in "Sweet Dreams"; my nonprofit organization, the Entertainers' Foundation, shares the stage with Nashville's production of "A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline" at The Texas Troubadour Theatre. I'd be most interested in having Jayme on our show, The Nashville Country Showcase!! Show debuts April 3rd! I'm fascinated by the mystery surrounding the pennies on Patsy's grave. I have just learned of this and maybe have a small insight: In May of 1995, my much adored younger brother was killed in an automobile accident in Houston, Texas. The first time I was able to return to his grave following the funeral, a penny fell from my pocket as I was removing a small picture keychain. The phrase, "Penny for your thoughts" immediately came to mind, so I left it there; I leave one every time I visit. Ironically, when I have returned around holidays, his birthday, and the anniversary of his death, there have been several pennies on his grave from others who have started doing the same; I am not in contact with most of these people and had never shared the story. There's more to it, but you get the point. Keep up the great work, and when in Nashville, come see "A Closer Walk"! Charlie Dick is often there and from what I've heard of rehearsals, it's going to be a great show!

I just read Frank's entry and he is on the mark. I think Winchester got on the Pat$y bandwagon only because of the huge interest expressed by her many fans. Patsy was her own woman and was politically incorrect before the term was created and this caused her grief. And there is still quite a bit of jealousy of Patsy felt by Winchester residents, which I noticed when I was there last July. One of her fans at Gaunt's Drug Store told me Hilda Hensley is still pretty angry with the town for its treatment of Patsy. I think Nashville has done more to remember Patsy than any other city.

Hey y'all! I'm a regular visitor to this place & just love to see what folks write about Our Favorite Singer! I thought it might be fun for us to gab about Patsy's songs and what they mean to each of us. Maybe we could talk about a different song every week! I'm pulling a song from a hat at random... and the subject for this week is... "You're Stronger Than Me." Oh, I do like this one. Did you know that you can sing "I Fall to Pieces" along with "You're Stronger Than Me" and they could almost be a great duet piece! Anyone out there have something they'd like to share about this lovely, lovely tune? And while I've got your attention, I'm always turning around in my mind the key words that seem to appear in nearly every Patsy tune. Apart from the obvious "I, you, me, the, a" type of words. My first vote would be for the words "blue" and "true." What do y'all think?!

Sadly enough, Starmail.Com has shut down my official Patsy site, and several other non-paying sites, in their server, apparently due to finacial problems... I don't know if they mean this to be temporary, but frankly I don't care, because I have now deleted the site from their server. So this site in Sweden is now the official (and only) site again. I apologize for any confusion that this may result in, but it's not my fault. Of course it was nice to have that cool URL,, but the main thing is to have a site that works, no matter what the URL is, so therefore I have taken this step. So, bookmark this site if you haven't done that already! Your host:

I wanted to let you all know about a CD on Patsy. Laserlight 15408 has a lady over dubbed w/ Patsy on the song "Lonely Street". I think it may be gospel singer, Vestal Goodman. I have a challenge for all true Patsy fans. I am sure everybody has seen the entries by Sheree and Marnie (Armstrong) requesting letters for the star on the Hollywood walk of fame. I have started a petition w/ friends signing saying they think Patsy deserves a Star. So I'm asking all fans to start one and lets flood the fan club w/ signatures! This would a great way for us to honor and remember Patsy! Please note my new email address. Also remember the premiere "Just a Closer Walk.." April 3. Mildred Keith will be there, hope you can too.

I just got through reading the guestbook, the tribute, the pictures, the crash site, EVERYTHING I COULD GET MY HANDS ON!!!! My husband just bought me this computer so I'm really glad to see a site for Patsy Cline!!! I really love her and her music, I couldn't help but to get sad as I was reading over the tribute and looking at all the pictures, she was so gifted; and I just really can't picture anyone else ever being able to fill her shoes!!! I would just really like to know if Julie and Randy had a hard time growing up without their famous and well loved mom? I know if she were my mom I'd walk tall and feel proud to know that she was my mom, which I'm sure they both do and a whole lot more, it was just a tragedy to them and all her fans, that she had to leave us all so quickly.

I'm like some of the others who wrote; wondering just where she would be in the music world today had she lived? I'm sure she'd be hanging in with the rest of them and giving it her best, it's also amazing to see how popular she is today, well, it's not too hard to imagine-but even today she is still inspiring alot of new artists. I also was glad to find out about the pennies on her grave, I read in a Country Weekly here awhile back about Terri Clark passing through Winchester, VA and she made the bus stop and they all went to Patsy's grave and sang "Amazing Grace" and put pennies on her grave and I couldn't figure out why? So I was also relieved to find out the reason behind it and it is really very loving and meaningful to a person to do that for someone who's passed on.

I've been a Patsy Cline fan for about 15 years now, I'm only 24, I first saw her in "Sweet Dreams", I bought the movie, tapes, posters, everything I could find!! I went to Nashville last summer and went in to Ernest Tubb's record shop and bought a Patsy Cline t-shirt, they had records on her, movies, pictures (real black and whites, I bought one), then I went up the street to Tootsie's where she used to hang out, and the minute I went in, I could feel the magic and history of the place come alive. I went out to Opryland and went into the Grand Ole Opry museum (a must to see!!) they had a whole exhibit on Patsy!! Her clothes, awards, personal items and they even reinvented her living room from her and Charlie's home!! I was so excited, of course I took pictures and recorded it all on my camcorder!!! I know I'm going abit overboard, but when it comes to Patsy Cline it just sorta' happens, I just wish she were still alive so we all could meet her and share with her how much we all love her, but I think she knows!!!!!!! Patsy, if you're listening honey, WE ALL LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think if Patsy were alive today she would be having the last laugh at the town of Winchester, VA. In early 1980, before Patsy's music was reintroduced through the movies, I visited the town of Winchester. At that time, I was already a BIG Patsy fan just from listening to her old albums. At age 20 in 1980, it was not cool to like Patsy music when everyone else was listening to rock and roll (and still some disco)... Anyway, I was shocked at the time to enter the city limits of Wincester and find no mention of Patsy anywhere. There was nothing named after her, no tributes, statues, plaques...nothing! Oh yes, there was one thing, a lovely plaque at the cemetary where Patsy's grave is... Put there and dedicated by her wonderful family. I was shocked that Winchester took more pride in their Apple Blossom Festival than they did in the fact that the world's best singers grew up there!

It was only in the basement of the town library that after much probing I was given a little box with a few photos, letters, magazine and newspaper articles about Patsy. Even then, the librarian looked at me as if I was crazy because I was asking her where the "mementos of Patsy Cline were". That is why today, I am happy to see all of the tributes that the town has now put into place... the highway, the Blvd, etc... However, I also think that Patsy is looking down and laughing at Winchester as the town that only paid tribute to Patsy when she became commercially "cool"!! With Patsy, it was all about the music and her love of her children... with Winchester, it's all about money! HA! Patsy made it so big that even Winchester couldn't afford to ignore her! I'm curious if anyone else has had any similar experiences with Winchester! Keep up the great work with this fine site, Per. You've given me a reason to stay on the Internet! Frank C.

Guelph, ON Canada - 1997

Hello Per and all... Just dropped in and wanted to answer a question I read here in the guestbook. Mr. Frank C. wrote in with a very good question. You have a very good ear and are very attentive, Frank! You asked who was singing "Blue Christmas" in the movie "Sweet Dreams". The answer is a neat little bit of "Patsy" trivia. When they were making the movie they needed someone that could sing for just such a scene. Mr. Owen Bradley picked the person that sang both "Blue Christmas" and "Rollin' In My Sweet Baby's Arms". Her name was Jamey Ryan. She was picked by Owen to sing these parts. Jamey has sung all over the USA, including Hawaii and has been to Canada and the UK. She was a regular on a syndicated television show in the late 60's titled "Del Reeves Country Carnival". Jamey also happens to have been my Dad's second wife. She is a very special person in my life. We have stayed very close.

Per, I have also meant to write you back, and with my schedule you can imagine, I don't get to write as many letters as I wish I could. I know you had asked about the pennies that are on the grave marker. I am sorry but I don't have the proper explanation for them being there. I believe that as people come to visit the grave they want to leave something and so the pennies have been left there, and I would believe, by many people, not just one visitor. (Of course I may be wrong with this explanation). I have also found pieces of money on the marker at my daughter's grave. I'm not sure why. If anyone knows of this "custom", please let us know. Well, nice visiting again. Will try to stop by again soon.

PS...Hello to Sheree and Marnie and all the "squirrels"! Luv Ya!

Comment: Julie, I've just learned about the custom with the pennies from Stewart Neill, who wrote to me about it: The pennies are probably left there by several people, and they represent a link to a loved one who is far away, a link of the heart between two people while they are apart... Stewart learned about this custom from his wife, a southern girl. /Per

Great page with lot's of good information! I'm a musician at the Pleasant Jamboree and there is seldom a night goes by that we don't play one of Patsy's great songs. Although there will never be another Patsy, occasionally someone will come along that reminds us of her. A few years ago a young girl performed on our show and I'll have to admit there was a haunting similarity in the way she sang 'Crazy'. It seems only fitting that yesterday 2/26/97 she would receive a Grammy as best new artist. LeAnn has grown up singing the songs of one of the best female country singers of all times, Patsy Cline.

HELP!!! Who can help me find the answer to this Patsy Cline question??? In the movie Sweet Dreams, Jessica Lange (as Patsy) is seen singing "Blue Christmas" for just a few moments. In the scene, Patsy is singing at a drive-in movie, and people start honking their horns and yelling "Start the Movie"... Well, here's my question: WHO provides the vocals for Jessica Lange in those few moments singing Blue Christmas? While it sounds like Patsy, I don't believe that she ever recorded Blue Christmas. I know that all other songs in the movie are sung by Patsy, but this one baffles me, and it is not listed in the movie song credits. Who has the answer??? Please E-Mail me at Thanks!!! Frank C.

Thank God for bringing Patsy Cline to us, even for the very short time. Three friends and I just opened our tribute to Patsy and friends in Minnesota Valentines Day and it was a huge success. We definately will be doing this for a while. If you know of anyplace looking for this type of performing give us a call. Thanks for this Patsy Cline site. I love reading about her.

I have searched high & low for a home page dedicated to the late Patsy Cline. As popular as she was then (and even now), I expect to find a COMPLETE page documenting her career. Finding your home page on Patsy Cline, I have ended my search. I AM IMPRESSED!!!! So impressed, I have decided to provide a link to your very page. So that our listeners can truly enjoy what she contributed to country music. LONG LIVE PATSY CLINE!!

Thanks for putting the info about her Cash Box chartings. I know the official charts in the music industry are Billboard's, but Cashbox is still used by a good number of those in the music industry. Her other recordings list differently as well on the Cashbox Country charts: "He called me baby" lists as #10, as well as "Leavin' on your mind" lists as #5. No matter what the charts say, all her songs are #1 on the Suboter Hot 100, and as far as I'm concerned, that's all that counts! I'll try to get more info on Cash Box's charts - I'm in the process of moving from Cd Juarez back to El Paso and all my things are in boxes! Any PC fans want to email me, I'm at:

Dear Per and All Fans of Patsy, I was overwhelmed when reading this absolutely fantastic tribute to Patsy Cline. I have spent the last hour reading your guest book and realized just how small our little planet is. These worldwide fans, be they young or old have recognized this truly angelic voice from heaven. All of your kind words and memories have connected universally to make us all very rich. We have experienced Patsy's passion, emotion, joy and pain in her songs. Everybody knows all the words, the lilt of her voice, the fun-loving gal who loved everyone she met.

My parents knew Patsy personnally from her start of her stardom to her tragic finale. Her music still plays in all of our homes. The letters are locked away and treasured forever revealing a homesick mother on the road missing her babies terribly and feeling guilty for following her dream. That takes a strong woman. One that we can all admire and be grateful for dreams. Keep playing her music, join the fan club and send all of your letters to the fan club Pres. Mel Dick (Charlies' brother) to support a "PATSY CLINE" star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. They have been trying for a number or years. Let's see that star shine brightly as a tribute to the one and only Patsy Cline, whom you all love. Thanks!

It sure is great to see so many #1 fans of Patsy's. Before finding this site, I thought I was the only one. One thing's for sure, you sure can't beat her. As for my favorite, it's hard to narrow it down to just one. But I'd have to say that her last studio sessions were the best of her career, from "Faded Love" to "I'll Sail My Ship Alone". They are pure genius, not to mention a piece of Heaven on earth. Thank you so much Per for all the appearent hard's surely appreciated. I would like to hear from other fans as well from across the country (or world). God Bless and take care!!!

I found this site yesterday and was overjoyed to know that there were so many fans who keep Patsy's music alive. There will never be another person like her and she is a legend and inspiration to many young people today. By the way, I just remembered that Country Weekly magazine recently featured an article about Patsy which included rare photos. There was even a photo of Julie with her mom. I was wondering if there are anymore young Patsy fans. I'm 18.

I have really enjoyed all the great info and photos that this site has to offer. I have been a great fan for several years and have managed to collect almost all of the material recorded by Patsy including many live performances that have been released over the last few years. What I am interested in finding now is actual live footage from her television show appearances. I already have both "The Real Patsy Cline" and "Remembering Patsy" which include clips of performances, but what I would really like to find is the whole segments rather than just clips. Can anyone help me????

My father interviewed Patsy many years ago when he was in broadcasting, he said she was one of the nicest persons to talk to, that she made you feel comfortable and at ease while talking. I became a major fan of hers, not through my father, but on my own. I sort of stumbled across her and don't listen to any other music. She was before my time, but feel a great connection with her, maybe her personality, because she stood up for what she believed, she was down to earth, and and made people laugh. I try to be that way. Patsy's true fan's will never let her die!

Will someone please let me know if it is true that Patsy Cline was supposed to sing the song "Blue" that LeAnn Rimes sings? My own oppion is that their will never be another Patsy Cline. I'll always be her number one fan. I also wanted to know if their was a way I could get more information about Patsy. Like a book or movie?

Comment: Yes, Bill Mack, who wrote the song "Blue", wrote it for Patsy, but she didn't get a chance to record it, so Bill Mack sat on it until he could find a female singer that could do the song justice, and that's LeAnn... /Per
What's left to say about Patsy?.....The Best!!!

I was so happy to see all the entries in the guestbook. It's great to know that there are so many other people out there with wonderful taste. I've been a fan for 10 years and know every word of every recorded song that Patsy ever made. I think that she saved my life when I went through a bad patch a few years ago - that voice told me I was not alone. Thank you, Patsy, you are still very much alive in the hearts of millions and you will live for many years to come.

Greetings from Winchester, Virginia, the home of Patsy Cline. There is an article in The Winchester Star, our local paper, concerning Patsy and I thought I would share it with you. The article was written by Don Worthington and is entitled "Potts Resolution To Honor Cline". Here is the article:

State Sen. H. Russell Potts, Jr., R-Winchester, is introducing a resolution to honor the 40th anniversary of singer Patsy Cline's breakthrough appearance on the Arthur Godfrey talent show. The appearance on Godfrey's Jan. 21, 1957, show was one of the big breaks in Cline's country music career. Patsy's mother, Hilda Hensley, and her sister, Sylvia Wilt, are expected to attend a Feb 21 session of the General Assembly in Richmond where Potts will present the resolution. The resolution "encourages the citizens of the Commonwealth to rediscover the brillance of Patsy Cline through her many recordings, which serve as a reminder of her enduring musical legacy".

The rest of the article is just Bio of Patsy. This article appeared in the February 15, 1997 issue of The Winchester Star. I will try to inform you when I come across info on Patsy Cline.

A very intense...and touching site! There will NEVER be another woman to "take the place" of Patsy Cline. Altho, someone may sound almost like her, the power of her voice and the magic she cast upon us...will be untouched. Simple words can not describe how a person feels about Pasty, but a smile and a a good start. "...don't leave me here, in a world filled with dreams that might have been..." Thank you Patsy Cline...for letting me share your happiness and your tears...through your angelic voice. You live my heart!

I've eventually managed to get into the menu where I can sign the Patsy Cline guestbook. I am a very big fan of Patsy Cline and I have six CD's and a number of tapes. Although I am 19 and Patsy was before my time, I will always enjoy listening to her music. I'm just amazed that no one else from Britain has signed the guestbook. I would like to hear from any Patsy Cline fan from anywhere in the world. My E-Mail address is And Per, this is one of the best Internet sites I have seen.
