On June 22, 2000, The Country Music Hall of Fame held a reception for the music industry and the press for the a new exhibit they have on Patsy Cline. The exhibit is the last one done before they go into the new building in May 2001. The exhibit features the letters Patsy wrote to Treva Miller. There are actual letters on display onlong with memorabilia from the contents of the letters. Some of the letters and postcards are blown up to make up the background for the displays. Other items on display are one of Patsy's cowgirl outfits, a card sent to Owen Bradley, Treva's scrapbook and many rare photos. Several photos are not published. 5 of her kinescopes from the late 50's are being shown in their entirety. Authors Mike Freeman and Cindy Hazen came to tell the history of the letters, plus read some lines. Mandy Barnett came to sing "Faded Love" and also to support the show "APC". Fan club members, Mark Ogletree, Lynn Aurelius (and family) and I, were onhand for the evening. MCA Chairman, Bruce Hinton, came to speak about Patsy's continued popularity and sales. WSM Prg. Mgr, Kyle Kantrill was on hand to speak about Patsy's Opry membership. Both companies are supporters of this event. Mrs. Owen Bradley, Julie Fudge, Michelle Conner (Julie's daughter) and Charlie were all here. Always, Jimmy Walker

I just had to write and encourage everyone to go see "Always Patsy Cline" at the Ryman. Mandy's voice and performance is unbelievable. Tere is a comedic genius. They had the audience laughing, cheering, crying and then laughing some more. The show being at the Ryman made it special. At times it was almost chilling listening to Mandy's voice. She would definitely make Patsy proud. Mandy and Tere also signed autographs and took pictures with us. We ran into Jimmy Walker at Opry Mills. It was great seeing him again. Tammy Barnes

Comment: The thing that differs the Sep. 10, 1962 session (in which that song was recorded) from others, is that Millie Kirkham sings with the Jordanaires, so that is probably the voice you hear. The other songs recorded during that session are "Tra le la le la triangle" and "That's how a heartache begins". /Per
This is a wonderful website, my two favorite female singers are Patsy Cline and Loretta Lynn. And my most watched videos that I own are "Sweet Dreams" and "Coal Miner's Daughter". I have two copies of each in case I wear one out... Does anyone know where her children and family are now, and is Patsy a grandmother in Heaven? Could I get an emailed answer to my home email if someone knows the answer to my question. I haven't been feeling good lately so I don't surf the internet much. Thank anyone so much... Patsy Cline fan forever. Nanny

Comment: Yes, Patsy is a grandmother in Heaven. And an e-mail is on its way! /Per
I am a huge collector of Patsy Cline. I try to purchase ANYTHING that has to do with her. I have some rare recordings of her on army recruitment programs, etc that I treasure. If ANYBODY has ANYTHING that they would remotely consider as "rare"...would you let me know because I would be interested in trading. Even rare television performances are interesting and collectable to me. I recently saw a program on VH1 called "The 100 Women of Rock and Roll" and it showed a clip of Patsy singing "Walking After Midnight" on the Ranch Party program. It looked like her performance of "I've Loved and Lost Again". WHERE CAN I GET THAT? Did anyone record it? I love her music SO MUCH and I REFUSE to believe that I have everything "out there".

The first time I heard patsy I melted. I didn't know much about her until the movies came out but I'd always heard of her. But once I did hear her voice it was like magic to me. I'm a fan forever now. If she were still alive today she'd be a mega superstar, even in her advanced years. No doubt about it. I have to stop and pause whenever I hear her songs on the radio. I never will get enough of her voice.

Comment: It says at the very beginning of the main page: "Deceased: March 5, 1963, near Camden, TN." And further down, at the end of the "Patsy's life" block, you have the story about what happened during Patsy's last three days, and that the plane took off from Dyersburg at 6.07 pm. What it doesn't say there, is that Patsy's watch stopped at 6.35 pm... /Per
Does anyone know who sings with Patsy on the song LONELY STREET. Those two women blended together so perfectly, it's a beautiful song. I get goose bumps listening to it. I listen to it over and over,now it's become my all time favorite by Patsy. I just wish they would have sang together more than one song. So if anyone knows her name please let me know, I would like to hear more by her. Thanks a lot. P.S. Patsy is still the greatest.

Comment: No one knows who that woman is. As far as I know, that recording was made as an experiment, and it wasn't meant to be released at all. That woman's voice was overdubbed over Patsy's original recording, probably sometime during the eighties. This overdub version is available on the LaserLight 3-CD set, and six or seven other songs in that set have been overdubbed (destroyed, if you will) with a fiddle that wasn't on the original recordings. /Per

ATTENTION LOYAL PATSY CLINE FANS: I have just been informed about something that I think is a total disgrace to the memory of Patsy Cline. As many of you know, the tragic hour that Patsy Cline was killed she was wearing her famous gold "chug-a-boots". These boots were featured on the "Patsy Cline Showcase with the Jordinaires" and most recently on the "Patsy Cline - Heartaches" CD. It has been reported to me that some tasteless person has reportedly displayed these boots in a display case in Wisconsin. (No doubt about it, the person who found them had to be a scavenger at the crash site!) I was informed about this by Lisa ("The Homesick Texan") of the "Patsified!" web-site. She has agreed to keep me informed, and plans to post a petetion on her website to remove the boots, if indeed the rumor is true. She found out through a highly reliable source of The Patsy Cline Fan Club Organization. If indeed a petition is put out, I certainly encourage you to sign it. To myself and many other loyal Patsy Cline fans, we prefer to remember her legacy, not her final moments. I feel that this calls out for respect not only for Patsy Cline, but her family as well. We'll keep you posted! Long live the memory of America's beloved, one and only Patsy Cline. God Bless You all and Thanks again for such a wonderful website, Per! Your Friend, Jared

Hidey ya'll! I am 16 years old and I perform Patsy Cline's music all over the place, and sometimes I even get to dress like her, which is always lots of fun. I just wanted to share that though I didn't get to live in her day, she has still made such an impact on my life. I started listening to her when I was 4, and then I started just learning all her songs, and I even started trying to make up my own. Now that I am older people have actually said to me that everytime they hear me sing they can't help but believe it's Patsy up there... Wow, that is such a compliment and I could not ask for more. It is so wonderful how through all of the fans that her spirit has lived on and continues to grow even more so. I have the dream of one day being there on that Grand Ole Opry stage, and I will do it one of these days by golly, and I just thank the Lord above that I was introduced to the music and spirit of the most talented artist of all time. I truly believe that it has opened many doors and opportunies for me and many other singers out there too. God Bless you all.

Howdy all, I see in the recent issue of Country Weekly (with Tammy Wynette on the cover) that they did a splendid review of "True Love - A Standards Collection". This writer loved Patsy's vocals and praised MCA for doing this collection. Shows her versatility. Kristi, congratulations! Glad you stopped by to let us know how things are going. Always, Jimmy

Hey Guys... Remember me??? It's been a long time since I have been here, it really brings back memories. For those of you I don't know, I'll introduce myself: My name is Kristy Barnes, I just graduated from High School on the 21 of May. My freshman year I did a history day project on Patsy and made it all the way to the National competiton. I also won a four year scholarship with my project. I will be attending SEMO University in the fall, majoring in music education and minoring in history. Basically Patsy is putting me through college :-)!!! I just thought I would stop in and say hi!

Hi folks... After a long absence I have decided to write to the forum. Listening to the "True Love" CD. Is it absolutely fabulous or what!! I think y'all will agree when I say that a Patsy song is as good or better than an antidepressant. I think her voice has that power to make a person feel up when they are down. I sure wish I could give ole Patsy a gigantic hug and tell her how much I adore her... Patsy we love ya, gal! Y'all take care!! Wade

Well, I have added such a feature now. Go here if you want to check it out. It works much like the Fan Forum, and the entries will be added manually by me. Thanks, Helen!

Hey all! Pam, I bought a copy of the picture some years back from a guy in CA. He did not know who the boy was. I would say the child of a fan. People do wonder if it might be Randy Dick, which it is not. Bernard, my sentiments exactly (it is Patsy that is great). Off subject: Ray Price has a new project out, oh I forget the title and it is in the car. "Prisoner of Love" maybe. It is pop material that he recorded a couple years back. The Nashville sound without the steel guitar and fiddles. Mandy Barnett does harmony vocals. Did you all see the news on the news page? Patsy's letters on display!!! Have a good one. Always, Jimmy 5-18-00

When I was fifteen, I was trying to sing a song I had always heard my father sing, which was "Heartaches". I didn't know the words. I heard my father tell my mother to let me listen to the 8 tracks, because I was ruining the song by not knowing the words. Since then I had begun a love affair for her songs. Her delivery and depth of emotion was chilling and raw. In 1993 my father was dying in the hospital and while visiting him and making our piece with one another. He had told me that he could not believe, how much I had sounded like Patsy and that I made him proud, to hear me sing the right words to her music that he love so much. He told me then that she died March 5, 1963 and while I was born March 13, 1964, that somehow I had made a connection or maybe she channels through me, with regard to the emotion and depth. Well, I inturn thanked him, for it was his melody that he held dear, that I picked up on and I will never let it go, my children who are 12 and 4 know her body of work through me. That is the way they will be connected to their grandfather, through the love and emotion of a real person, Patsy Cline. May my father and Patsy and who all have passed before me, may they always feel that peace! Thanks for letting me share my memory!

I have a question I hope someone can answer. I have just gotten my copy of the "True Love, A Standards Collection" CD. On the inside is a picture of Patsy in her cowgirl attire kneeling down beside a cute little boy. It is a great picture and I wonder where it was taken and who the little boy is. It would be a great picture for this site. The CD is wonderful! I have all these songs scattered on different CDs, and it is great to have them together on one CD. Patsy outshines two Pros {Bing and Judy, and I love then both} with "True love" and "You made me love you". All of the songs are great!

Dear Per and other Patsy fans: Hello. I'm needing the help of everyone that reads this. I hope to find a picture of Patsy that I saw in one of the Earnest Tubb record shops in Nashville. The picture is one of my favorites. Per said the site would try and post a link to show you the only poor snapshot of the picture I have. Hoping someone out there has the picture and is willing to share a copy via the web. Also I know there are rules and copyrights on pictures so I'm not looking to get anyone in trouble. Please share the picture if you have the go ahead from the right people. Thanks again, and Per, thank you for your help! As always the site is very informative.

She is my favorite singer of all time. I heard her singing on the radio when I was 27 in 1984, and I thought this is the best voice I have heard of a woman ever. She was singing "I Fall to Pieces". I asked my mother about her, and she told me about her, and I have been a fan every since. I have a tape of her greatest hits, and it's one of the many I've bought since 1984, due to the fact that I wear the tapes out. She will a hundred years from now be appreciated for that great voice. A real and classy lady. No woman singer compares to her.

Hi everybody! I know that many Patsy Cline fans are Jim Reeves fans also. So I hope you don't mind if I drop in on your wonderful site to share some fantastic news! It's been a long time since fans of Jim's had anything new to listen to. But now there is a great new CD coming out that contains 13 UNISSUED "overdubs" that Mary Reeves had done before her death last November. The music is incredibly beautiful and sounds as current as if it were done today! None of these has ever been heard by fans before (though some had been overdubbed previously, these are entirely new versions). If you'd like to check it out, visit me at BEST WISHES to all of you. We're all big Patsy fans too!

The same portion of "Moonlighting" appeared on A&E TV last week but I didn't have time to write down any of the words. I like the song, but can't remember any part of it.

Or how I can find out information about it, or where I can get other items for my collection. Came across an album at a flea market last weekend, still in the rapper, never opened. The lady said, "Oh give me .50". I got it and ran with it. Any information of where I can get memorabilia of her or actual items of hers would be greatly appreciated. Sincerely: A loyal Patsy Fan.

Patsy Cline was, is, and will always be the greatest. I wrote a poem for Patsy and I want to share it.

"Live Tonight"

The sign on the marquee says, "Live Tonight",
but the lights, they have been dimmed,
for the stage it will be empty, and the curtains have been trimmed.

The plane was lost in Tenneessee,
and the golden voice was stilled,
the disc jockey held back the tears,
as he announced that Patsy Cline was killed.

Country stars and fans alike,
were saddened by the news,
for a woman whose love of life,
was to sing the country blues.

The Grand Ole Opry is silent,
at the loss of a good friend,
but the music from this country star,
will last till time does end.

The sign on the marquee says, "Live Tonight",
and Patsy Cline will sing,
for the Lord so loved her beautiful voice,
that to Heaven, Patsy, he did bring.

Hello! How is everyone doing? Great I hope! I had a question and maybe someone can help me on this. About 5 years ago, my Uncle was at a flea market in Ohio when he found this Patsy Cline poster for sale. It's red and white and had: "In Person, Patsy Cline" Sunday March 3, 1963 Memorial Building, Kansas City, Kansas. 7:00-8:30 p.m. Benefit for Jack Call. Special Guests include: Hawkshaw Hawkins, Dottie West, Cowboy Copas, George Jones, Billy Walker. If I recall correctly, a few people have posted about having the same poster, but in different colors. I have no clue if this poster is authentic or not? But the poster is very very old looking, with wrinkles and four tack holes in each corner, that look like it was hanging on something, because the holes are a little bigger than tack holes. If anyone has any info or input on the poster, could they email me? Thanks :o) I also have a picture of it too, if that helps.

Next, I want to thank everyone for writing me, asking for CDs. Although there are a few people that have asked for CDs and haven't got any yet. I'm sorry about that :o( Since we all have computers, I think we can safely say that our computers have crashed. Actually, mine have crashed numerous times, so I lost all the information of addresses and such. So, if anyone emailed me with requests for CDs, please email me back, and I'll get right on them :o) Thanks. As of right now, I'm making a video for a talent show called, "Your Big Break". It's on ABC everyone Saturday night, 7:00 eastern time. What the show does is, you keep a singer you sound like, if they pick you, they fly you out to LA, to film the show, they have makeup artists make you up as that singer, and after you sing the song, the audinece votes for the winner. If you win, you go onto the semi-finals!!!!!! So, that's what I'm going for.

And, I've got some other good news. I'm still trying for the Rosie O'Donnell Show. Actually, I have a friend in Savannah, GA who became friends with Rosie about two years ago, her name is Gini, and she met Rosie on the show, when Gini did the opening announcements on the show....anyways, they became friends and Rosie invites Gini to a show every May, when Rosie takes the show to Orlando, FL. Ok, to make a long story short...Gini is going to ask Rosie's assistant to send her 2 extra tickets and she is going to give them to me and my mother, so that I can give Rosie a CD personally!!!!!!! And Rosie, loves Patsy, Gini tells me!!!!!! I'm sooo excited, this is what I've been waiting for. So I just had to share that with you all. Thanks for reading this and I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter!!!! Take care! Always, Erica Dawn

Comment: Regarding the poster: I don't think that it is authentic, because as far as I know, there are no original posters with Patsy's name on it, from her last concert in Kansas City. Patsy decided to go there only a few days before the concert, so there was no time to print them. They are most likely made after Patsy's death. Anyway, I hope you get on those shows! Good luck, Erica! /Per

I'm from Toronto, Canada and a friend of mine briefly heard something about a Patsy Cline tribute sometime this month, here in Toronto. She can't find any more information on it, so if anyone can be of any help at all, it would be appreciated. Thanks!!!

For anyone who doesn't have it, there are songs on there like "Crazy", "I fall to pieces", "She's got you", "Faded love", "Leaving on your mind", "Your cheating heart" and finally "Lovesick blues". I know Hank Williams recorded those songs first. I heard that Patsy recorded "Lovesick blues". Is this true? If anyone could give me this info I would appriciate it. Per, did you change email addresses? I thought I'd saw another one on another page. Take care, Robyn

Comment: Hank Williams wrote and recorded "Your cheating heart", and he also recorded "Lovesick blues", but none of the others. And yes, Patsy recorded "Lovesick blues". Regarding my e-mail addresses: I have two. One at work and one at home. My address at work is, and at home I have the address /Per
Hello to everyone, and just wanted to say that I went and saw the Hank & Patsy tribute show last night that I posted on here about a few weeks ago and it was great. Duff Macdonald who played Hank Williams was great, and Marie Botrell who was Patsy was great as well. Please go out and see this show if you can. It was interesting and entertaining...believe to hear from other Patsy admirers...Take care and bye for now...CLINELY ALWAYS, Jacki

Wow!!!! Great site and a wonderful tribute to the great Patsy Cline. I was born 3/6/62 and grew up with her beautiful voice. I also sing her songs and have done recordings. One of my favorite songs is "Someday (you'll want me to want you)" and "I fall to pieces" and of course "Crazy" and "Sweet dreams" are way up there on by list of favorites.I was born and raised in Madison, West Virginia, and have been singing since I was 5 years old. Patsy Cline's songs were always my favorite and my family was amazed by my vocal ability being so young and all, but I never pursued any sort of career in the music industry. Patsy Clines songs and her pure sweet voice will live on forever.

HEY NOW! Well, 1st of all, where you fill in what City you live in - needs to have more than 15 spaces... What if I live in Truth Or Consequences, NM?!?!?! 2ndly - no specific directions to Patsy's crash site. Major negative. Lastly: Other than no directions, a very nice and informing site! Bye :)

When it comes to the 15 characters for the city, it is the first time in almost four years, that someone has mentioned it, so I don't think that it is a major problem... :-) /Per
Hi Patsy Cline fans! My group, called "Het Gebroken Oor", wants to do a Patsy Cline song called "Hungry for Love". We would be greatly helped by someone who has the sheet music for us. We didn't find it here in the Netherlands. So is there a Patsy Cline fan who has the sheet music to "Hungry for Love"?

Hello everyone, I just wanted to say how neat is was for me to learn that I was related to the late (great) Patsy Cline! I can remember seeing an autographed picture of her hanging on a wall in our home that read: "To my cousin Sandra, Love, Patsy Cline"! As I got a little older, not being a country music lover much, I finally asked my mother who was that lady in the picture, and that's when she told me the neatest story of how we were related to Patsy on my mom's father's side of the Newlin family who like Patsy was also from Winchester, Virginia. In fact, my mom would tell me how (before) Patsy got famous, she would like to sing a song or two at family functions or picnics! But, my mom was only 12 or so at the time, so she didn't really pay any attention that much.

But once my mom said, that Patsy had asked my mom if she could babysit her two kids, right at the same time after her car wreck (because my mom said she was wearing a cast on her arm) and that's when my grandpa asked Patsy if she could sign an autographed picture for my mother, since she helped her out by babysitting and all. My mom tried to get an autographed one for my aunt Barb, but that's when Charlie came home and he and Patsy were having a disagreement over something, so she told my mom that just a picture will have to do! But, I remember seeing that one autographed picture in our home, and through the years one of my relatives had taken it from my mom's car, while she was packing our stuff up to move. But, I know who stole my mom's treasured picture, and she knows who she is, too. I've seen the same autographed picture show up at a close relatives house, and being an artist, I can tell the picture had been touched up, and another name had been written in! I told my mother, but like she said, only my mom and her dad and Patsy and God knows who that picture was given to and really belongs to, that the relative that stole it, just to use to brag to her friends, will have to live with what she has done to my mother's treasured picture of her cousin.

I really don't (still) much care for a lot of country music, but I just love hearing my cousin, Patsy Cline! One day I would love to sing one of her songs, and have it recorded just for fun, because my mother says I too, have a good singing voice! I missed meeting the legend by a few years, because I wasn't born until 1966. But what a sad day it was when my family heard of her death. Patsy's mom was my great-grandfathers sister, so now I love seeing anything I can about my cousin. To all her true fans, she is surely smiling down from Heaven as you all are keeping her music and memories alive! God bless all of you who enjoy her old time country music. I don't think they'll ever be a singer like her again!

I once saw Loretta Lynn on a talk show, and someone in the crowd stood up and told Loretta that he was a distant cousin of Patsy's, and Loretta being the kind and dedicated friend that she was to Patsy, told that guy and of anyone else that was related to Patsy to come on up to see her in Tennessee, and she invited them over to talk about Patsy. I looked over at my mother and told her, "Mom, what are you waiting for, write to Loretta, you surely know alot about Patsy, since you grew up in the same town as her and was her 3rd cousin, and even babysat for her once." My mom said, "Yeah, that would be cool to meet Loretta Lynn. Take it easy, Patsy Cline fans, and keep her memory alive and keep having "Sweet Dreams!" Your's Truly, Rebecca, her cousin.

I can't tell you enough how incredibly pleased I am that you created this website, Per. What an awesome tribute to one of America's leading ladies and diva's, Patsy Cline. I have been a fan (like most fan's my age; I'm 18) since I saw "Sweet Dreams" and I've been hooked since then. I was 6 years old when I discoverd the voice of Patsy Cline and since then, I have never heard a voice so pure and so beautiful. Patsy Cline was just an ordianary person. She didn't realize that she was a future legend. She just wanted to sing and love everyone around her. Maybe that's why her legend continues and will forever.

I began singing her mucic at the age of 7 (my voice was VERY high and has changed since then. In fact, I'm a bass now!) in Talent Shows around our county. On one of our first trips to Nashville, my father new that I wouldn't sleep unless we stopped at the Ryman Auditorium as soon as we got there. My Dad and I both loved country music and Patsy Cline, and he realized that standing on that stage, where Patsy Cline stood, was as good as it could ever be for me. Since then I have changed my mind about being a country singer. My father died last year and I have since decided to major in Television News Broadcasting. Still, I know that I will always love Patsy Cline's music, legend and story. When you're all down and out and depressed, doesn't it always feel good to come home and put on a Patsy Cline record? I know that'll always be my favorite thing to do in that situation.

By the way, if you all haven't checked out Erica Dawn's page (that Per has so graciously created) on this webiste, you must! I became friends with her through the Internet, and what a voice! She has the full potential and strive to be a singer. You all mark my words! This girl can sing and will be famous someday! Like us, she shares a love for Patsy's music, and on her page you can listen to several samples of her singing some of Patsy's music. Check it out! Thanks for the memories and tribute to Patsy, Per. God bless you all! Your friend, Jared

Hi everyone, long time no see. It has been a long time since I last posted on here. Hope everyone is doing fine. Was reading at the News page here, came across the message about the gentleman who has the reel to reel tapes of live concerts that Patsy is said to be on. Sounds like we need a new Patsy concert tape, how ABOUT IT. Well, ya never know, maybe one will be released in the near future. Lets hope so. Just wanted to tell ya all I was not real impressed with the duets CD that was released on Patsy. It to me was not the clearest I have heard Patsy sing. In fact, I think the sound was rather surpressed in quality. I thought she sounded clearier on the new Millennium Collection CD. Well, just my thoughts. Take care, everyone.

I have this beautiful painting of Patsy Cline for sale if anyone is interested. You can contact me at Patsy Cline is just beautiful in this wonderful watercolor painting. This outfit that Patsy Cline has on, was called the cowgirl outfit, and her mother, Hilda, made it for her. The painting is 22 1/2" x 36", and is in a custom metal frame, there is some glare on the pictures from the glass of the frame. The pictures do not do the painting justice. The artist is Nina Fritz who started painting while living in Japan in 1962. She studied at various universities and at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Her watercolors hang in many private collections, and in the Florida State Capital. In 1979 her art was recognized nationally when she was the first Gulf Coast artist chosen to submit work for the 112th Annual American Watercolor Show in New York City. For the last ten years, she has been a guest artist and has painted commissioned works for Seaside, an award winning Florida Gulf Coast Community where she now has the Nina Fritz Gallery. She has done several series; the Jazz Series, the Children's Series, and the Women's Series which is currently showing in her gallery as well as the Gallerie Le Reviens in Westport Connecticut and on the Internet. She was commissioned by Paramount Motion Pictures, Hollywood California, for whom she created paintings for the Jim Carrey Movie, The Truman Show. Her style is loose, spontaneous, and impressionistic with a fluid wet-in-wet watercolor method that causes her paintings to glow with light and color.

Greetings from England. I have been a Patsy Cline fan for many years and have amassed some 150 CD's and 60 vinyl albums from all over the world. I am intrigued by 2 rare remixed (overdubbed) Patsy Cline songs that I have in my collection, and would welcome any information on these remixed tracks. "Lonely Street" featured on the CD "Unforgettable Classics" on Castle Communication Records MACCD 173, as being available on other CD's, this features Patsy dueting with an unknown female, the unknown female sings some 60% of the song, and the deep bass refrain by one of the Jordanaires is virtually missing. Also I have a more heavily orchestrated version of "Life's Railway to Heaven" on the CD "The Heart You Break" on Point Production Records (Holland) AAD 2620072. Finally I know that Patsy appeared on a television show "Jubilee USA" on 4th June 1960, hosted by Eddy Arnold, in which Patsy sang "How Can I Face Tomorrow" and "Lovesick Blues", Patsy also dueted with Cowboy Copas on "I'm Hogtied Over You" and "Rubin, Rubin I've Been Thinking". A video of this show was marketed by Tower Productions of Iowa. Although I have contacted this company a few times I have had NO reply. Does anyone know where I can get a video copy of this show? Many thanks.

I've been a fan of Patsy's for about 10 years. I like all her hits, but was quite surprised when I learned that my favorite song, "Three cigarettes in an ashtray", was recorded on my birthday, April 25, 1957. I've probably seen "Sweet dreams" 10 times. Patsy's songs are always soothing to listen to and also good to sing in the shower or when driving. I'm hoping to ad to my small collection and have especially enjoyed the "Patsy Cline Duets Volume 1" that I just bought.

Patsy, dear Patsy... I love you... I have been a true fan as far back as I can remember. I am a 25 year old country singer/songwriter myself, like many other fans. I live in a country music show tourist town where we used to have a Patsy Cline show, but for whatever reasons, no longer. I hope to sing some of Patsy's songs in one of the shows here soon, in hopes to not only keep her music alive and kickin' here (not that she needs the likes of me to do so), but as my personal tribute to the most beautiful voice God ever placed on this earth. I was brought up on her style of music and some old hillbilly tunes (being a country girl myself), so I found it to be quite natural for me to sing Patsy's music. I can remember being very little and my mother telling me about Patsy Cline and how the quality of her voice was strong, yet as smoothe as silk. I started singing all the time in my teens and have always found her music moving to not only listen to, but to sing. One of the things I love about her, is the fact that she was just like us... She had her troubles in life like we all do. Yet she was still an outstanding person in character and talent. She was living out her dream.......which in itself is admirable.

Was driving back home from a visit to Oklahoma when I noticed that I was approaching the Camden, TN exit (126) near where Patsy's plane went down. I had never been to the sight before, and decided that I would stop to see the new memorial. It was not difficult to find, but I was surprised to see just how close it was to the road... Thought it would lay further back in the woods from what I had read before... But anyway, there it was, down a steep hillside at the edge of the trees... Obviously someone had cleared this hillside of all the brush and trees that must have covered the area 37 years ago. A rush of sadness came over me like never before, and I just stood there... It was a rainy and foggy day about like the one they discribed the plane had been flying in. I noticed the desecration where someone has chipped away at the engraved letters on the large rock and this angered me since it hasn't been 4 years since this marker was erected... Have some respect, people, whoever you are. Well, I'll have to say it was in a way, a very cathartic experience for me, and I don't regret stopping... Every fan should stop at least once.

I love Patsy! What an amazing voice, woman and life. I am a singer and naturally began to sing along with my CD's. All the sudden I realized I could sound like her - even my speaking voice. Since then I have bought a wig and a couple of great vintage dresses and have worked as an impersonator. My goal is to honor her as best I can each time I sing one of her songs. If you need me for a party or mini-concert, just email me! I'm in the Chicago-land area! Thanks!

Hi everyone, and just wanted to say that I noticed in our local newspaper here, that in April there is going to be a tribute show for both Patsy and Hank Williams at a local theatre. The lady that is Patsy, is Marie Batrell, and I can't remember who the guy is that is going to be Hank. I'm considering going to the show, as tickets are $25-Canadian dollars, but I must see how my work schedule is.

I love Patsy's music. She voice is one in a million, I can not say that I have heard anyone todate to equal the quality of her voice, and her heart-felt tone. I am very sad, that her life and career were cut so short. I love to listen to her music. I loved her character, her spunk, her passion and her dedication. She stuck me as a caring mother, wife and singer. Although she is no longer here in the flesh, she will always be alive through her music. I am 39 years old, I have 5 children and we live in rural Alberta. I love music, painting, writing poetry, singing, and nature. I am presently a student, going for a degree to perform as a Psychiatric Nurse. I have done varied jobs, jack-of-all-trades, but master at could say. I transposed one of my many poems into lyrics and accompanied by guitar...and then sang it to my husband during our vows. That was such a cool experience, creating and making my words come alive in song. Well, I better go, classes are about to start

Just stopping by today to help remember Patsy. I know that yesterday was the day she was killed 37 years ago. What a loss! There'll never be another voice like that in country music and I only wish I could have been around to hear her IN PERSON. Alas, I was born in Jan. 1963 and she did her next to the last concert near me in Birmingham, Alabama on March 2. Darn it! I was only 6 weeks old at the time.

I rec'd this site through the another link and I am sure glad that I did. I think it is awesome. I hope you get a million fans to join and keep her memory alive. Your site really captures he life and I think it was done in very good taste. I learned a lot about her that I've never known. I have several of her albums and some cd's now, and I play them often. "I Fall to Pieces" is the best ever sang by her I think. I know a lot of people have tried to sing her work, but no one person can compare. There is only 1 Patsy. I loved her voice and always will. Could it be that my folks called me Patsy for over half of my life? I'm not sure but I'm also happy to share her name. Thank you and keep up the good work...

George, actually, that is a fab idea. I have a friend who plays a few instruments. I have been trying to get him to start a band with me. He won't, but he has learned a few Patsy songs, even the few you mentioned. He plays them on guitar and mixes in the drum machine. I sing. We do a rather grungy/punk/techno/jazzy/funkadelic version of "I love you honey". It actually rocks. Cheers, Joey Mechelle

You know what I think would be cool? If the recording industry did a techno remix of the songs "Gotta Lotta Rhythm In My Soul", and "Stop, Look & Listen". In the case of the latter, they could use Patsy's voice from both released takes, making a long, original modern song. I also think that a new, modern pop-sounding remix of "She's Got You" would be kewl. Using a whole orchestra or something, and modern backbeats with all the kewl gadgets and recording techniques they use now. Call me crazy, but I think it would be kewl if they released a Patsy CD where her tracks were remixed to todays mixes, and sounding more pop than country. (That's one thing that disappointed me about the Duets CD: they made them all sound completely country, when they could've made some pop). And it would be kewl if they used some big names in the pop field for the next Duets... Like Cher, for example. She and Patsy would sound great together on a duet of "You Belong To Me", whaddya think? LOL Just a thought. Always, George

Just saw the show "A Closer Walk With Patsy Cline" which was at the Fireside Theater in Ft. Atkinson, Wisconsin. An excellent show. The production advisor is Charlie Dick. It was directed by Ed Flesch. The original production was presented by the Vancouver Arts Club in September 1991. "A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline" is sanctioned by the Patsy Cline Estate. The woman who portrayed Patsy was Leslie Jo Bissett. She began singing Patsy Cline right here at The Fireside in COUNTRY MUSIC JAMBOREE which led her to the Grand Palace in Branson, MO. She spent the summer doing "A Closer Walk" in West Palm Beach, FL, but feels like she's coming home to her friends in Wisconsin. During 20 years in professional theatre as a singer, dancer, actor, director and choreographer, Leslie Jo found time to have 3 children and marry her high school sweetheart. At home in Carlisle, OH she is a youth ministries director and community theatre producer. Leslie Jo put on a performance that Patsy would be proud of. You almost thought it was Patsy on stage. What a voice!

For those who are fans of the hit musical, "Always Patsy Cline", you might be intersested in knowing that the real Louise Seger is alive and kicking as ever just outside of Houston, Tx... If the show returns to the Ryman this summer, she may very well return to support the show. The first bio ever on Patsy Cline was released in 1981 and was written by author and playwright, Ellis Nassour. He discovered Louise's story and her many letters from Patsy and was convinced they should appear in his book. Several years later a couple of fans come across the chapter about Louise and Patsy's friendship and were convinced it would make a great musical....the rest is history. If you loved the Louise character in the play, then you are bound to fall in love with the real Louise Seger, so come out and see the show this summmer folks, and tell Louise that Alan sent ya!

Carole and All, tickets for the "Always Patsy Cline" show at the Ryman can be ordered by calling 1-615-889-3060. I would advise calling ASAP as tickets are sure to go, since Mandy made a recent appearance on "Backstage at the Opry" to announce that she and Tere Myers were returning this summer. Jimmy

Mandy Barnett was on the "Backstage at the Opry" tv show last night, and they mentioned she would return next week to talk about something special. I suspect that it will be about her roll as Patsy Cline in "APC" at the Ryman this summer. Also mentioned was a tv interview/story that would air this morning on CBS. Footage included her auditioning for APC and singing a clip of "Crazy". I just ordered my tickets for the premiere show of APC 6-15-00 and got front row seats! So good seats are out there. Order early. Always, Jimmy 2-6-00

I'm so happy that I found this website. I love certain songs of Patsy's. "She's Got You" was played at my wedding! I wish I could have heard Patsy in person. I get the cold chills everytime I watch the plane crash in "Sweet Dreams". Could you imagine if Patsy were here today? I have seen her family on tv but I would like to know more about them. It was nice to know, through your info, that Charlie was not a mean, abusive husband as the movie portraits him. Keep up the good work. We will all meet her someday in Heaven!!

This is a wonderful site, in remembrance of a wonderful artist. As a songwriter myself, I am so excited to see the memories of how country use to be still kept alive and well today. I know we must move on and grow, but somethings are good forever, as I believe Patsy's work to be, and all of the old tunes from Nashville. I hope that with some work we can always keep a small part of that old sound alive and well. I would be happy to work for, support or contribute in any way I could to see this goal carried out.

Patsy Cline's music has touched me in so many ways. Her music is like a way for me to escape from the real world. I love to curl up with a book and put in one of her tapes, her music relaxes me and gives me strength. She is my idol, to the fullest. I wish she was still around. She was and is a special woman in my life. By the way, I'm 15 years old. :0)

Sorry, but the poster isn't genuine. Patsy was a last minute addition to the Kansas City show, and there aren't any promotional items with her name on it. Also, Loretta Lynn didn't appear on the Kansas City show. Similar posters trade on eBay in the $10 range. An acutal poster, if one could be found, could be worth several hundred or several thousand dollars. These "reproduction" posters are created with the sole purpose of making money off of Patsy's name. With at least one exception that I've seen, no genuine concert poster of the day would include the year. They make a nice collectible for the fans, but that's about all.

I recently came across a concert poster at an antique shop for one of Patsy's concerts. I purchased it simply because we enjoy her music. I just realized the poster is from her last concert, Sunday, March 3, 1963, at the Memorial Building in Kansas City, Kansas. The background fades from pink, to yellow, to green and lists special guest stars: Hawkshaw Hawkins, Cowboy Copas, George Jones, and "a new up coming star Loretta Lynn". I believe it to be an authentic poster. It is in fair condition. Does anyone have idea of its true worth?

Folks have been wondering for weeks who would be portarying Patsy in "Always Patsy Cline" when it returns for a limited summer run in Nashville's Ryman Aud in 2000. To the delight of many, Mandy Barnett will be reprising her roll as Patsy! Also, the "APC" show will be in NJ the month of Feb and March and in Texas. Terri Williams will be portraying Patsy. Jeanie Seely has been cast as Louise Seegar in the NJ show. Patsy was featured on VH1's "Greatest Rock and Roll" songs. They showed footage of "Crazy" and pictures. Always, Jimmy

What can you say about Patsy Cline, I think all the superlatives have already been used. I am 52, mother of 2, and a mature age student and I think the first time I heard Patsy sing was when I was in my mid teens, and to be fair, up until that time like most teenagers it wasn't cool to enjoy country and western music. But boy, was this lady some role model. Not only did she pour raw emotion into all her songs, but she was a strong, independent woman at a time when this just wasn't the done thing. She was the origin (in my opinion) of the old saying, "what you see is what you get", no pretentions or diva attitudes like some of todays stars, and she could belt out a song in one breath and then adopt the voice of an angel. I am not saying she was perfect by any means, but she was up there near the top of the tree. I guess my favourite song (if I had to choose) and this would be hard ,is "I fall to pieces". Just brilliant.

Erica Dawn Synowsky, who has written a few entries here in the Fan Forum, and mentioned that she has made recordings of some of Patsy's songs (and a few others), sent me a tape containing her recordings. This girl can sing! I have made a special page for her, here at the site, because I think she is worth all the appreciation she can get, and I hope that she will make a singing career in the future. On Erica's page you can read her own story, and listen to samples of her recordings. The samples are all in MP3 format.

Hey all, Per that was Tere Myers who played Patsy in the Dottie West story. Incidently, this movie is available on video tape. Tere autographed my copy in Jan 1998. She did not know it was on tape then, and we all rolled with laughter. Frankly for her brief appearance I thought Tere did a great job. I don't think the book of SD is available, you might check a used book store for a copy. Always, Jimmy

Hi everyone! I'm a very big fan of Patsy Cline. I agree with Sue about Beverly D'Angelo doing a great job playing {P.C.} in {C. M. D.} They should have got her to play {P.C.} in her own movie, instead of the one that played her. I can't think of her name right now, but everyone knows who I'm talking about. Don't get me wrong, it was a great movie. She didn't sing, they played records. Now, it's another story about Beverly D'Angelo, she sung all the songs, I think, but still she is no Patsy. Thank you for making tribute to her. Tammy

Hello to all. Just finishing reading "Sweet Dreams" and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations on the definitive Patsy biography? The author of SD points out that his work leans toward historical fiction, relying heavily on the recollections of friends and family members. Also, has there ever been written something wide-ranging about Patsy's impact on the music scene down to the individual listener? I've been listening to her music a lot lately and was moved by a quote in the liner notes to The Patsy Cline Story, which had her quoted as saying, "I just sing like I hurt inside". Thanks for your input.

I just now got into Patsy Cline. I wouldn't even say I am a "true fan", I just bought one of her CDs today and I really like it. The reason I bought it was because my friend is going to be playing Patsy Cline in a play coming out in June. She is going to be great, I am so proud of her! She has always wanted to play the Great Patsy Cline and now she finally gets to!

Hey Everyone! I have some interesting news for anyone who cares: I don't know if Broadcast Music Inc. made a mistake in their archives or not (do they do such a thing?) but at their website (, under Patsy Cline as 'artist', there is a song listed called "I Love You More Today". This was a song recorded by Conway Twitty and according to BMI Patsy recorded it. I've never heard her sing it and there's no record of it. Does anyone know if this is a song she sang live or for the armed forces? If not, perhaps it's from that mysterious December 18, 1955 session that's not in any discography? Intriging. Anyways, I was just curious and thought that I would check with ya'll. Take care. Hope 2000 is already looking bright for all of ya. Always, George
