Once again I have the privilege of performing in "A Closer Walk With Patsy Cline" in Branson, MO. It is a good show, so if you come to Branson, MO, don't miss it. It is at the Showtown theatre (formerly home of the Wild West Show on Gretna off 76). Come by and say hi! Also congratulations to Julie (Jones) and her new baby!

Patsy Cline is without question the greatest female singer in history to date. I have never heard anyone evoke so much emotion and with such ease as Patsy. The beauty of her voice can not be put into words. There is a local gal here that comes closer to Patsy with her beauty than anyone I have heard. For those of you that enjoy the emotional depth that Patsy's music reaches, you may want to listen to Cherie at This is not an advertisement for Cherie and I hope this gets posted. Cherie to me is the goddess today that Patsy has been always! I love Patsy, I have the movie "Sweet Dreams" but I can not watch the end, it is just to painfull that so much talent and beauty was taken away from us. My heart is torn open by the voice of Cherie the way it has been by Patsy. Thank you for creating this web site.

As a friend of Anna de Matto, I would like to inform you, at her request, that her father has passed away. Anna is a loyal and very dedicated Patsy fan whom we visit with each and every year in "Winnie". She was very kind to her dad and will miss him greatly.

I would just like to take a moment to say that I feel Patsy Cline is THE best artist of all time. I became introduced to Patsy's music with the movie "Coal Miner's Daughter" and since then, have gathered all the recordings that I can find of the legendary superstar. She left us early and will be missed greatly, but she left behind her extremely talented voice, one that which will not be forgotten for eternity. Only once in a lifetime someone like herself comes along, and I am honored that it was in my lifetime that I became acquainted with Ms. Patsy Cline's music.

Hello... This is Julie again. I forgot something the last time I checked in. Actually, I guess I thought more people knew, so I didn't think to include it in my last post. My daughter, Michelle and her husband Nathan are expecting! They have found out it is a boy! We are all excited and happy for them. By this fall we will have a new generation. And now I am trying to decide on a 'name'... for me! Somehow it is like a name like Granma or Grannie is a label that needs to be earned. Well, as Vyvyenne (club sec.) said, I'm sure this little one will help me 'select' a name! Well, gotta get the boys up for school. Just a few more days left in this school year. Happy Summer everyone! Julie

I have a question... I was hoping someone out there would be able to help me... I was watching a movie the other day and during one part of it a song that sounded like "King of the road" was being sung by a woman. I went online and found the script posted and it said that the song was "King of the road" sung by Patsy Cline!! It is not on the soundtrack for the movie and I have been unable to find it on any of the Patsy Cline CD's... Does anyone posting to this board have any idea where I can find this? Thanks in advance for any help. Much appreciation, Donna Broussard

Hello to Per & all... This is Julie... Looks like a good time to stop by. I wanted to let everyone know how the weekend in Winchester went. We went to Winchester for the 74th Annual Shenandoah Apple Blossom Festival. We had a great time. We were asked to attend and be Honorary Marshalls for the festival, which had the theme "Crazy for the Bloom". The Grand Marshall for this year was Brenda Lee. The Firefighters Marshall was Jim Ed Brown. This year's Queen Shenandoah was Miss Tyne Vance, daughter of Susan Ford Bales (former Queen Shenandoah 1975), and granddaughter of former US President Gerald Ford and Betty Ford.

This year's guests included George Hamilton,IV, Moses Malone (basketball legend), Jim Palmer (baseball legend), Susan Hawk (CBS Survivor I), Kathy Garver ("Family Affair"), Tom Dolan (Olympic Gold Medalist), Miss Virginia Jacqueline Cook, Miss Apple Blossom Lisa Marie Melton, Sports Marshall Dick Vitale, WUSA-TV Sports anchor Ken Mease, top college basketball scorers, & brothers Juan & Phil Dixon, Cindy Hazen & Mike Freeman (authors of "Love Always, Patsy"), and Ruth Graham McIntyre, (daughter of evangelist Billy Graham and his wife, Ruth) who spoke at the prayer breakfast.

We rode in two parades, and attended several luncheons, were welcomed by everyone, and were very honored to be there to represent the family of Patsy Cline. We had a chance to see some of the family, and visit with a few friends. It was a whirlwind weekend and we wish we had had more time to stay in Winchester, but we had taken the boys out of school for three days to make the trip, so we had to make it short. The boys, Chris & Andrew, and Michelle and new husband Nathan, all went with us. They enjoyed everything, and I think the highlight of the trip was winning goldfish at the midway. One was adopted by Mel & JD in Winchester, and set free in the goldfish pond in their yard, and one made the trip home with us, and now has a nice little home in Andrew's room.

It was a fun trip, and makes me want to get away more. Thank goodness summer is upon us! The kids have just at a week left of school. This is also the week of the Grand Opening of the new Country Music Hall OF Fame here in Nashville. I hope to attend the festivities on Thursday. Today I am getting over a sinus infection, but hope to be able to attend on Thursday. I know some of you will be there, and I look forward to seeing ya. TV Alert... Dad saw a "Drew Carey" commercial, and Drew is in a straight jacket, and is lipsyncing "Crazy". (ABC network) I think the show airs on Wednesday. Correct me if this is not right.

Well, I guess I have bored you all enough. Love to hear from everyone.

Note: Johnny Russell is not getting along so great. He was able to attend a benefit on his behalf at the Opry House a few weeks ago. But, sadly, after that he had to have his legs amputated. Please remember Johnny in your prayers. Thank you for all your support and dedication. You're the greatest. THANKS PER!

From before I can remember I knew who Patsy Cline was. She was and still is my mom's FAVORITE!!!! I was only 12 years old the first time I saw "Sweet Dreams". It is still my favorite movie. I must have seen it atleast 100 times.(yes, actually 100). I cry every time I watch it. It is so sad to think of what could have been. Thank you so much for this site. It is a wonderful tribute to a wonderful woman, singer, and entertainer.

I think this is the first time here. I was in the sing-a-song contest in Winchester last night. I was the old lady in a black shimmery dress with white boots. I was the first one up. It was a very nice event. I guess I should have hung around after it was all over. I was also the only one who sang "A Poor Man's Roses".

I am a great fan of Patsy Cline. I remember first hearing her ever popular song, "Crazy", when I was a mid-teen, just breaking up with a boyfriend. Listening to one of Patsy Cline's songs made me cathartic. It gave me a deeper meaning of my feelings; the only way to feel to pass through the emotions I felt. Currently, I am in college taking Fundamentals of Music. To fulfill course requirements, it is necessary for me to do a research paper on an artist whose made an impact in the industry. I believe that Patsy Cline is one of those role setters. She was one of the female artists to pave the way for the other female country song writers/singers. This is my opinion. I was hoping I could get someone else's opinion who's an expert in the life of Patsy Cline. Whomever you are, I was hoping you could respond to this request. Thank you!

Hello to Per and everyone, Wow, it's been so long since I've written in here... But hey, no time like the present! I'm writing to share with you all, my experience of travelling to Winchester for the "Patsy Cline, Sing a Song Contest". Needless to say, I didn't know what to expect when I arrived there. When we did finally arrive in Winchester, folks were setting up rows and rows of chairs for the upcoming Apple Blossom Parades on Friday and Saturday. It was so wonderful riding through downtown Winchester. I had forgotten how beautiful it is and how I always get the old fashioned feeling going through there. We arrived at around 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, so I had until 6:00 p.m. to calm my nerves! Which wasn't easy! We were all to meet at the James Woods High School at 6:00. The contest started at 7:00. As I approached the doors I scoped out the area. Observing anyone I could, to see what they were wearing. I was afraid I would encounter a sea of red and white cowgirl dresses, fringe and all. And I am happy to report that only one lady was wearing the whole "cowgirl Patsy" dress. All of the other girls, were dressed in simple dresses and pantsuits. So I didn't feel out of place in my black knee skirt with a fushia cotton sleeveless top :o) Sorry, I had to give a description.

In the hallway, before the stage doors, were tables setup selling Patsy Cline tee-shirts and a new book by Stuart Brown Jr. and Lorraine Myers entitled, "Patsy Cline, Singing Girl from the Shenandoah Valley" which includes some wonderful new photos. Well, anyway, all the contestants were ushered to the back of the school, to the music department where we patiently waited to go on. Patient might not be the right word to describe it. There were a total of 36 ladies in the contest. 1 sang "I Fall To Pieces", 1 sang "A Poor Man's Roses", 3 sang "She's Got You", 12 sang "Crazy", 11 sang "Sweet Dreams" and 8 sang "Walking After Midnight". I was the 9th person to sing. I chose "Walkin'" and was the first gal to sing live with the band (only 4 ladies sang with the band).

I was quite surprised, the Apple City Band played "Walkin'" pefectly, I couldn't have asked for it to be played any better, they were wonderful. George Hamilton IV was there and the Town, County and State of Virginia proclaimed May 2nd as George Hamilton IV day! I got to meet with George and had a very nice chat. What a wonderful gentleman. The judges were : Mel Dick, Charlie's brother and General Manager of Always Patsy Cline, Sonny Fyre who knew Patsy and played in a few bands with her, Phil Luttrell who is WAZR-TV News Director and was once a dee-jay at WINC, and "Tom Cat" Reider who is a country music disc jockey and knew Patsy! Though I wasn't picked as the winner in the 19+ age group, I did have a wonderful experience and wouldn't have missed it for the world. The lady who did win was Amanda "Kat" Lightner who I would assume was in her mid twenties. I did not, however, get a chance to hear her version of "She's Got You".

I did get to meet Jane Radford and she was so nice. She said she knew I was coming and waited around just to hear me sing!!! Actually, I did leave Winchester with some good news. Because there were so many wonderful performers that night, Judy Sue, and some other gentleman running everything that night, mentioned that there would be 16 finalists chosen out of the 36 girls to compete in another contest this Fall, when Winchester celebrates Patsy's birthday. I was told they hold the party at some great mansion in the country. The winner of that wins a paid trip to Nashville, tour of Nashville, tour of the Grand Ole Opry and Backstage. The person leading this tour for the winner will be Patsy's husband, Charlie. I am proud to say that I was told I AM one of the finalist to sing this upcoming Fall! O.k., I think I am done for the evening. I just wanted to share with you all, what a wonderful experience I had! Take care! Much Love, Erica Dawn

Hey all... Was listening to some of Patsy's Four Star recordings the other day, and got to thinking. It's obvious that Patsy didn't have any hits (with the exception of "Walkin' After Midnight"), largely due to lack of publicity and advertising; but I was listening to some of her finer pop selections, like "Too Many Secrets", and I was wondering why that song, or one like "A Stranger In My Arms", or "Gotta Lot of Rhythm" wouldn't have been tasteful on the 1950's pop charts. Do you guys think that maybe her yodels and growls (that easily became her trademark, and that we've grown to love so much about her) had something to do with it? Just a thought... It'd be kewl to get a discussion going about that, or at least get some input back. Thanks :). Always, George

Hey gang... Just a word to the wise. I noticed on e-bay today that what appears to be a gold/platinum award for Patsy's "Greatest Hits" album is up for grabs. Save your money, since this is a fake! I'm not sure of the item number but it was listed under Patsy's name while I was doing a search to see what was available. Not to put down e-bay, its buyers or sellers, as I have bought plenty from that site and have been satisfied, but the "award" they are offering that is supposedly from an auction house was probably made at someone's house. The real deal issued by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) carries their seal and can't be duplicated. I know of this first hand since I was presented one at the Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony. The RIAA sticker is a hologram with a serial number, the one for auction has no title of songs, artist or record company or units sold. It's actually a blown up picture of the album cover that's been butchered to pull off this hoax.

I caught it while looking around and it may have ended already, but I didn't pay attention since it was an obvious fake, but realized not everyone may understand the actual certification process and the wording that follows the presentation. Artist awards are rare and should be vauled as a treasured item, but please don't be taken by this unless u really gotta have this for your collection. I'm sure it's nice to have and would be a great conversation piece, but the money it's going for is nuts! It's not an actual certified award, just some CD's behind glass with a picture of Patsy, again this may have ended but I thought I'd let u know since actual RIAA awards are not usually available to the public. See ya- Mario :)

Hello all, I wanted to write a note to you, and Julie. I live in the town, where quite a bit of the movie was filmed in, walk those streets, and been in the houses. Miss Patsy saved my life and existence, once when at the age of 13, I was diagnosed with a potentially fatal nuerological disease, and had a stroke at 17, told I would not live past 21. Then again, in December, when sitting at a stop, I was rearended, no brakes, at 45 mph, and pushed into another car on the road, and thrown a total of 15 feet. I broke my back at mid chest level, but with your Mom's ever loving song filled prescence, I am fighting to regain full control of my body, again, and it is due to her, I get up, and do push further, day after day. Well, Julie, your mom pulled me thru it all. I needed to thank her in some way, on my behalf to you. Never will you know...

Also, Julie, do you remember Anna Louise? She was at the dedication to the Winchester Museum that is being built, and was a speaker on your mother's friendship, your mom, and the love she carries for Patsy. She met your dad, he arrived late, and waited till all settled, and approached him, sharing the letters with him that your mother sent. Several talked of you, and getting her hair set, and you off to bed. Anna said she has your home address, and is mailing to you copies. I think she was debating on giving them to you, but she wanted to give them to the mueseum. She also has many pictures, one which she gave me, taken herself. It might be worth checking that avenue, you would not be forced to buy them, if she decides to hand them over, or has done so for Patsy - It will be only for the expense of having you have part of your mother back.

Who knows. It was thru her, and my father and uncle and grandad, I got to know most about how your Mom lived her life. PURE inspiration. You would be suprised at us who still keep the flame burning brightly for her, you, her children's behalf... Not that we could do anything near the job you all have done to keep Miss Patsy with us in various ways. Know this about us townfolk in Winchester, and Martinsburg - other surrounding area's, we are very protective of her, what information is shared with outsiders to our communities that come to pilfer knowledge. We don't mind sharing, but when they are pushy or self motivated, we do!

Julie, often I have thought of you, prayed for you all, and know the pain of losing a parent young. I lost mine at the age of 6. You will never, ever know, the comfort Miss Patsy has brought to me, or what she means to me. I know this letter submittal is to be more on Patsy, I mean NO disrespect. I have searched for ages, a way to thank some part of Miss Patsy. I thank you from the bottom of my being, Anna is forwarding my letter to you, I hope you don't mind that Charlie gave us your address. I decided it be more fitting to enclose it with Anna's, so you not feel put upon. I ask whom ever reads these submittals, that you please post this. I am willing to share all my working knowledge passed down to me, only that which I KNOW as fact, as often, I do understand, fact even gets mixed up with fiction.

Anyone who wishes may email me, but I cannot imagine what I know needs shared as I cannot imagine a site more informative, warm, or true sense and source of knowledge on your mom. Miss Patsy, where ever you may be looking down upon us, we know you know we are here, and that you are so proud of your family! Most respectfully submitted - long as it may be, for your review, to be posted.

I think I am Patsy Cline's biggest fan!! I am only 17 years old, but I think she is the best! What really got me into her is when I was 6 years old and saw her movie about her life!! Ever since then I listen to her music, and I have watched the movie several times!! I wish I could have learned more about her, because she is an inspiration to me. I want to be just like her. I wish she was still alive, because I would do anything to meet her!

I've recently found Patsy's music. Call it country, pop, or countrypop... To me she just sings the blues. She sings the blues like no one I've heard before. I never new her story until I visited this page today. But based on her music, I had assumed she led a life of unimaginable pain and heartache. The emotion in her music blows me away. Peace. Jake

Hi, out there in the big US of A! Have been a fan of the girl with the wonderful vocal range for quite some time, and appreciate all the efforts that this website have taken in supplying such priceless biographical info to all her other fans! She made Willie Nelson's song "Crazy" her very own & sang it better than Nelson himself, but she endowed all those up-beat country ballads with a romantic fervour and warmth of feeling that were all her own. She certainly was a real-time c&w girl who sang "with a heart" in every line of every song (admittedly there were a few badly penned numbers that should be forever locked in the vaults of those late 1950's, down-beat commercial numbers). She was a fine example to all her successors of how to render a good scripted melody and, sadly, most of the later-day C&W songsters could not come up to her mark, although they have saluted her ocassionaly in singing some of her songs. Love to hear from some more of her ardent fans!

And yes, a couple of years after Patsy's death, Charlie married singer Jamey Ryan. They divorced in 1972. Jamey is the one who sings the songs "Blue Christmas" and "Rollin' in my sweet baby's arms" in the movie "Sweet Dreams". /Per

Hi there... Just listening to Patsy's passionate music, and would love to hear from other Patsy Cline fans. My favorite song of Patsy's is "Sweet Dreams". I love her voice, and the passion she poors into her songs. What a talent she has! I believe that Patsy is still with us, but sadly, only in our hearts.

Comment: I'm sorry, but that poster is not authentic. It was made after Patsy's death. There are no "real" authentic posters from the Kansas City concert with Patsy's name on them, because Patsy's participation in the concert was a last minute decision, so there was no time to print posters with her name or picture on them. /Per
I was just wondering... Does anyone know what is Charlie Dick's favorite song that his wife recorded, and/or Julie's favorite song? Per, thank you for this wonderful site for a wonderful woman!

Hey all! I thought this was intersting... The other day, I made a massive database of all of Patsy's recordings on my computer. Every single song that's ever been released by her, including the rare alternate takes. Altogether, there are a total of 212 songs (58 from Four Star, 51 from Decca, as well as live performances, radio transcripts, and remakes and duets), and over 9 HOURS of music! I think it's awesome that The Cline left us that much of her special self :). Also, I have a couple of questions for Per or Lisa or Jimmy or Bill or whoever else may know... Did "Have You Ever Been Lonely" become a hit in 1981 when Owen duelled Patsy with Jim Reeves? And did "Always" hit the charts in 1980 when he added new instrumentation? Just a couple of things that were nagging my brain. :) Until next time, ciao!

Well, whenever and if you can, could you get back to me if they'll ever have them and where I can get one. Thank you so much! Lara

I am kind of new to this site but I have been visiting it every day. It is so awesome. It is so touching to see people writing in from all parts of the world in remembrance of a great lady that will never be forgotten. I think it was cool to see, as I was browsing through the pages, that Charlie Dick and Julie Fudge had entries in here. I love Patsy Cline dearly and though she has been called to live with God, she will always remain in my heart. God Bless, Dustin.

I love Patsy Cline. I am 11 years old and I sing, and most of the songs I sing are Patsy. I wish I was born back when she was alive because she has had a big influence on my singing. She, in my opinion, is the female Elvis, the Queen of country.

Patsy Cline is long remembered by a huge range of true country music listeners!!! The next best thing to Patsy Cline is singer Mandy Barnett, she sings and sounds hauntly like the queen of true country music. And it is fantastic that Mandy Barnett, and die hard Patsy Cline fans, are keeping Patsy around, for all eternity!!!!! In loving memory of Patsy Cline, March 5, 1963 - March 5, 2001.

Hey All! For those of you that have been unaware... Tomorrow, March 20, "The Real Patsy Cline" will be released on DVD, along with Loretta Lynn's video bio originally released by Charlie through Hallway Productions in the mid 80's... It is being released as "Country Legends"... So head out and get a copy!! I have also receieved a copy of a rare radio interveiw done with Patsy in late 1961 just after "Crazy" was released... It is so nice to hear her cut up and talk about the song that she hated in the beginning... She goes on to mention her latest release and asked the DJ, "that's a weird title, aint it?"

Also, on March 5, 2001, Eddie Stubbs of WSM-AM did a tribute show to Patsy and the others that died in March. If you go to the archive section you can still listen to it with RealPlayer.

Was just watching a show on TNN called "A Century of Country", and tonight's feature was the Nashville sound. There was a nice feature on Patsy and there was a few video clip, one of which I have never seen before. It was a clip of her performing "When I Get Through With You". I only wish they would show these in thier entirety as it was really great for the 10 seconds or so that they showed. Does anyone have any info on where these video clips from her television appearances can be obtained as I am now thinking that there is a lot more out there than what has been on the documentaries on her. I would be most interested in seeing more. Thanks for any help anyone can give... And great site, Per. Have been checking in for a few years now and always looks great!!

Hello All! Wanted to drop a line to let you all know about the Patsy news in my area. First off, there is something new in Nashville. Starting March 8 there is a dinner show at Nashville Nightlife. This show features music from the 50s-90s. Patsy will be remembered by Lisa Layne in this show. You can call 1-800-308-5779 for more info.

"Just a Closer Walk" was at The Bartlett Performing Arts in Memphis, TN March 24, 2001. This was a one night show that was sold out by early March.

The big news is that the exhibit of letters that was at The Country Music Hall of Fame has been relocated to the Rock and Soul Museum in Memphis, TN. There was a reception March 5 that I attended. Roy and Cathy Nerad from the Chicago area came down as well. Cindy Hazen and Mike Freeman live in Memphis. The display has changed some to incorporate more letters and many unpublished photos from Treva Miller's scrapbook.

While in Memphis I went to Beale St., Sun Studios and The Freeman house. The Freemans own the house Elvis lived before purchasing Graceland. Mike took me on a tour and pointed out several areas were photos had been published. A treat was getting to see the traveling showcase of some the letters Treva wrote to Patsy. Also included in the showcases were some photos of Patsy. These will be first used at the Barlett Center March 24. They are talking with other museums and theaters about loaning these out. I believe they will in Winchester for Apple Blossom Festival. If there is a Patsy show in your area, and a theater that might be able to accommodate these, please contact me or Vyvyenne and we can put Mike in touch with you. Always, Jimmy Walker

It's been almost 12 months since I visited this area. Another year without that wonderful lady we all adore, admire and aspire to 'Patsy Cline'. I missed Patsy's memorial day, but her name was mentioned so often throughout that day and likewise all her fans were playing her songs and thinking about her and her life, I wonder if Patsy tuned in, and if she did, I hope it gave her a smile to know that she is a still a star and has remained so for such a long time.

My heart and thoughts go out to Patsy this week as she was lost 38 years ago. Bought the new album "25 All-Time Greatest Hits", released on the Varese Sarabande label. A must have for all you fans out there if you haven't already picked it up. A great companion to go along with "The Patsy Cline Collection", as it contains 8 of the only 12 songs that weren't included from the sessions in the boxed set. Never heard clearer copies of "Dear God" and "Cry Not For Me". It sure makes a difference when they take the tracks directly from the master tapes. Truly a superb job for all who was involved in this compilation. Anyways, until next time, take care all of you, and see you later. Love and Luck, George.

I'm a few days late Patsy, but I thought of you all day on Monday March 5. As a fan I know I am not alone with my feelings when this time of year rolls around. Even though I am only 26 years old, when I think about her death being 38 years Monday, it just doesn't seem right. I can still remember it only being like 22 years to date, which is when I became a fan of Patsy's, that would be 1985. Boy how time has a way of flyin' by. I would like to say HI to Jimmy Walker, Lisa Flood, Wade, and the others!! It's been some time since I have spoke to you guys personally, but time becomes a factor sometimes. I am going to try to come to Winchester this year, of course, I have said this every year, even told Jimmy I'd be there 2 years in a row. HA HA! Take care, everybody!

There will be some folks gathered at the crash site in Camden with beacons, and the pilot, en route from Dyersburg to Cornelia Fort Air Field in Nashville, will slowly circle the crash site a few times, then continue to Cornelia Fort, where he will leave a red rose for our Patsy.

It is so true, she lives still in all of our hearts. I am a mother of 2, 36 years old, married 15 years. I love Patsy. Her voice is unique because I feel she expresses emotions in each of her beautiful songs. I can feel her happiness, sadness, pain, broken heart, and passion in her music, as I'm sure you all can also. There is a strange closeness I feel to Patsy. I have always felt this way. I am sensitive to her life, and her death. My favorite song is "Sweet Dreams" And oh yes, "Faded Love" Patsy will forever sing in my heart.

Reflecting on Patsy and the influence she has all over the place: I was walking through Hub Mall the other day (a promenade of shops in the big provincial University of Alberta here), and I happened to walk by the small independant music store. Anyways, as I walked by, I noticed in the front window display, proudly sitting between an Elvis collection and an Aretha Franklin collection, stood "The Patsy Cline Collection" Boxed Set for all to see. I think it's just great to know that Patsy has touched so many people's hearts all over the place, even up here in Edmonton, Canada... And it's wonderful just how timeless her music has become. It warms my heart to see her music sitting on display like that, or being advertised in a flyer, or on the internet... And I'm so happy that so many people still enjoy her. Take care always, George.

I have been a fan of Patsy since I was 2. I am only 19 now, and every time I see a picture of her, or I hear her sing, I cry like a baby. She is my hero, my idol, I want to grow up to be just like her. I wish I had her strength and her courage. I would love to have had the opportunity to meet her, but sadly I am only 19 years old. Everyone thinks I am strange because I would rather listen to Patsy, than all this new stuff now. I have every album of hers I was able to find. I am looking for a picture of her to hang on my wall in my room. My daughter's name is also Virginia Patterson Hensley. I named her that because when she was born, I was watching "Sweet Dreams". I think Patsy would have liked to know I named my daughter after her. If I could tell Patsy anything, I would tell her how I admire her for all the courage she had and all that she endured during her life. If God could grant me one wish I would ask him for the opportunity to meet Patsy. I love everything you all do here, it has given me a chance to learn about Patsy what I didn't know. Thanks for everything, Patsy would be proud.

Hey Per and all - I was just reading the comments on "Sweet Dreams" and I couldn't agree with you all more - Beverly D'Angelo SHOULD have played Patsy Cline in "Sweet Dreams". She looked so much more like Patsy did than Jessica Lange, although I must say that it would have been a totally HORRIBLE film had Beverly used her own voice as she did in "Coal Miners Daughter". As stated in the comments below, nobody can sing like or imitate Patsy exactly, but I was certainly proud of the fact that "Sweet Dreams" director Karel Reisnz did use her own voice. No wonder Jessica Lange once said that her role as Patsy Cline was her favorite - has there ever been a woman as unique? I think not. God Bless You All and Take Care! Your Friend, Jared

I have been a Patsy fan since the 1950's. I saw her perform live in 1962 and it is something that I will never ever forget. I remember when I saw her I thought to myself, "This woman is going to be a HUGE LEGEND someday"... when I heard about the plane crash I cried for days... It was like losing a friend. No one will ever come close to Patsy. It is amazing how much Mandy Barnett sounds like Patsy. However, as great as she is (and I know she would agree with this) she is not Patsy... What is amazing to me is how many people try to "recreate" Patsy --- The movie "Sweet Dreams" is a great example. Close but no cigarr... In fact, "Sweet Dreams" is not even close. I saw Patsy perform... Beverly D'Angelo was MUCH closer to Patsy in "Coal Miner's Daughter". Jessica Lange is a great actress but did not even come close to catching Patsy's aura. God Bless Julie and Charlie for keeping us fans updated and to you, Per, for the BEST (and first) Patsy website. What is Patsy's and Charlie's son Randy Dick up to these days? Is he married? Do any of Patsy's descendants sing? God bless. Louis

Per, I wanted to compliment you on your outstanding tribute to Patsy. What a perfect web site it is! I was listening to Patsy on my CD this morning and it gave me the idea to see if there was a site like yours on the Internet, so I discovered your great corner. Patsy Cline was, in my opinion, the greatest singer of all time -- not "one of the best" but THE BEST. No other singer, male nor female, can bring me so close to tears. Her producer, the late Owen Bradley, was the perfect match for her voice and may be regarded as one of the finest producers ever. Her early recordings (over 40 years ago,) still sound perfect, and the fidelity and stereo separation are superb. I am 53 years old, living in Tokyo now, but was raised in East Nashville (in Inglewood) during that whole era, so her songs bring so many memories of my youth.

As I listen to Patsy, Jim Reeves, Brenda Lee, as well as the more traditional country artists of the era, (Faron Young, Loretta Lynn, et al), it makes me think how poor the state of the music has become in the last few decades. I have been in radio for 30+ years, so it's my misfortune to have witnessed this decline firsthand. I wish everyone would listen to Patsy, with the headphones on and volume turned up. Her voice conveys tenderness, humility, anguish, and all sorts of emotions which the listener can "feel". My favorite is "She's Got You" and during the recording of that song, Patsy kept interrupting the session because of her sobbing. God bless her. Regards, Clark

Being a long time Patsy Cline fan (having grown up in the 50's and 60's listening to her recordings) and being a psuedo expert on her music I was skeptical when I first heard of Patsy Cline "sound-a-likes". Yes, I did see the movie and have listened to other vocalists attempts to be Patsy and always came away shaking my head. I can now tell you without hesitation, there is ONE vocalist who truly does Patsy justice and that is Gail Bliss.

Back during the summer of last year I heard about a production called "A Closer Walk With Patsy Cline" coming to the Alhambra Dinner Theatre in Jacksonville, Floridia. Being the skeptic I am I reluctantly purchased a ticket. Boy was I in for a shock! There, on a small stage, with a four piece band stood Gail Bliss, the epitome of Patsy! Mannerism, style, dress and then came the voice!! To say that tears swelled up in my eyes would be the understatement of the year!

Was I skeptical after that? No fact, when she did an encore performance this year, I had to once again return to watch Miss Bliss as Patsy......TWICE!!! In all my 53 years on this Earth I have NEVER paid to watch a performance of anyone twice much less THREE times! That's how impressed I was! I cannot say I have seen any of the other Patsy Cline impressionists/impersonators as mentioned on your website but I can say, without equivication that if there is such a thing as a Patsy Cline reincarnate, it's Gail Bliss.

If she is playing in your locale I STRONGLY urge you to go and see this marvelous performance. You will come away with a lump in your throat, and tear in your eye and a smile in your heart for you shall truly believe that Patsy was with us once again. I tip my well faded hat to Miss Gail Bliss, a performer of star-like quality (who, in her own right) is a tremendous singer/performer! BRAVA have brought our Patsy back to life! My only regret is that there is no video of Gail Bliss as Patsy. There should be! Her performance is amazing and I know THIS Patsy Cline fan would pay any price to have one!

What a wonderful forum I have discovered! I watched "Sweet Dreams" for the umpteenth time recently and it got me to thinking of whatever happened to Charlie and the kids. So, I emailed Per and he was kind enough to email me back right away with the link to this page and info on the family. I've listened to Patsy for the past 10 years and my 8 year old loves her too! Are there any pictures of Charlie out there anywhere? The only face that comes to mind is the guy who starred in the movie. Thanks for your help and it's nice to be here.

Comment: Go to the news page at Lisa Flood's Patsified! site. There you have a picture of Charlie and Julie from when Patsy got her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1999. And just above it, in the entry for August 5th, 1999, there are links to three more pictures. And if you go here and here you have two pictures showing Charlie back in "the old days". /Per
Hey Per! It's been a while since I've been to your site so I thought that I'd drop by! Still looking GREAT as always! Keep up the great work, and I hope that everything is goin' well for you! Have you bought the new Patsy album yet? "The Ultimate Collection"? (2 CD set). I thought they did an awesome job of it and the pictures of Patsy look great as always! Take Care! Greetings from Western Canada :) Always, George

I've loved Patsy Cline since I was a little girl and I'll never forget her. She has such a beautiful voice. I'll always keep her memory alive.

I love Patsy's voice. I think Patsy was the best female singer there ever was or will be. None of these new ones (singers) can hold a candle to Patsy. My favourite song is "Strange". But I really love all Patsy's songs. They are played all the time in my house. Thank you.

I have been a fan of Patsy Cline's for years. Every time I listen to her songs, I feel more emotion of every nuance of every note. Patsy had the most fantastic voice and way of delivery of any singer that every sang. What she did with her voice was just incredible.

Hi everyone! Just wanted to comment on how great this site is. Until I saw this site on Patsy Cline, I believed that she had never had children. That, in fact, she suffered several miscarriages. Kind of broke my heart to think that such a great singer had left this world without any descendants. But thanks to this site I know now that whomever I got that piece of information from was incorrect. Thank you and keep up the great work! Wonderful site!

Hello all the Patsy Cline fans! Since I was little my great-grandmother would play songs from Patsy and Hawkshaw. She would sit me down and tell me these stories about when Hawkshaw would come to the Jamboree in Wheeling and ask her to appoach the stage to sing with him. She also told me that at one point they were calling each other frequently. It even went so far as he asking her to tour with him and meet other stars (i.e. Patsy Cline). Since I am only seventeen, I only know a small amount about Patsy and Hawkshaw, but anyone who's good enough for my great-grandma Maud, then they are plenty good for me. I wish everyone sincere happiness and good fortune. God bless, Stefanie

Please HELP! My 10-year-old daughter wants to sing "Walking After Midnight" for her school talent show. She's been practicing with the CD, but she really needs an instrumental (Karaoke) version ASAP. I have not been able to find one anywhere! I've already bought and altered a beautiful vintage red chiffon dress and she's practiced so hard. She sounds great and looks gorgeous. If anyone can direct me to where I might find this item I'd be VERY appreciative!

Comment: CDnow has two karaoke albums on cassette called "Karaoke: Patsy Cline 1" and "Karaoke: Patsy Cline 2", but they have no info about which songs that are included. But they also have an album on both CD and cassette called "Sing-a-long", and that album contains "Walkin' after midnight". /Per
Im 40 years old and grew up to miss Cline. The voice of our millennium. Sincerely, Phillip

To Patsy Cline fans: I am an arts and entertainment reporter for the Albuquerque Tribune. I am doing a story on a musical being put on at a local theater, "A Closer Walk With Patsy Cline". I'm looking for Patsy Cline fans, from New Mexico and beyond who can tell me why they love Patsy Cline, what about her and her music still resonate all these years later. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you, Trilby Davis

If anyone can help me find out which three original albums Patsy released before her passing, I would greatly appreciate it. I think they might include "Showcase" & "Sentimentally Yours". However, I have found that there are two different albums for "Showcase". One with The Jordanaires and the other without. I have been looking for these for a very long time. Even people at the record stores can't seem to help. I guess they didn't put dates on LP's back in the sixties. I am anxious to hear back. Thank You, Terry

Comment: During her lifetime the three albums "Patsy Cline" (DL-8611, 1957), "Showcase" (DL-4202, 1961) and "Sentimentally Yours" (DL-4282, 1962) were released on the Decca label. "Showcase" got a different cover in 1962, but the recordings on it are still the same as on the original 1961 release. Click on the links above to get info about each album. And to get info about several other Patsy Cline LPs, CDs and EPs, go here! According to my notes, the Everest album "Patsy Cline's Golden Hits" was released in 1962, thus also during Patsy's lifetime. /Per
Did Patsy Cline ever make any recordings under her own name. A friend says she did, but doesn't know the titles. Can anyone direct me to a source that I might get copies from.

I was 2 when I started listening to Patsy Cline, and since then I have been a Patsy fan. My fav song by Patsy was "Back in Baby's Arms". To me, Patsy Cline is one of the greatest singers that has ever lived.

I would appreciate your help. I am helping to make arrangements for a funeral which will take place on Tues 23 Jan. The family would like a hymn "Dear God, I know we are not worthy", and they think it is on a Patsy Cline record. If you can give me any details about the recording or the hymn, I would be most grateful.

I was thrilled to find this site about Patsy Cline... She has always been my idol. I can listen to her songs for hours on end and I cry every time. There never has and never will be a country music singer that comes close to Patsy, she had a true gift in her music and I feel it will live on forever. My daughter who is eight is just as crazy about Patsy Cline as I am and her dream is to one day be a country music singer just like Patsy. I hope one day she accomplishes this the same as Patsy did.

Hello Per & all... I have an off topic subject, but hope you will still read... A dear friend of our family is in the hospital, and needs prayers and encouragement... Johnny Russell, whom some of you may know, is a Grand Ole Opry star, and a very talented songwriter. (You may have heard one of his many songs, "Act Naturally".) He is in the hospital and has been for many weeks. He still has a few weeks to go, and I hoped some of you might write, or email him a note. Johnny is a great guy, and a wonderful entertainer. It can get pretty depressing to be on the hospital for so long, and I am sure you can understand how lonely it can be. If you would like to write, the address is:

Baptist Hospital Rehab Center
Patient Johnny Russell
2000 Church Street
Nashville, TN 37236

and if you would like to email, send it to: with subject: Johnny Russell.
Thank you, and you guys are the best!

I am glad to have found this wonderful site. We have been looking for everything on Patsy Cline for my 6 yr. old daughter. She has been so impressed by Patsy's voice and songs that she wants to be like her. She is singing at nursing homes and festivals and placed 2nd in a contest last year. She just got a new tape and fell in awe with "Walkin' after midnight", "Honky Tonk Merry go round", "Let the teardrops fall". Maybe someone out there can help. Does anyone know of anywhere that I would be able to get sheet music or karoke music for "Honky tonk merry go round" & "Let the teardrops fall"? Thanks a bunch!!! Christy

Hello, my name is Wendy Fromm and I have loved Patsy Cline since I was 13 years old. I am now 33 years old now, and still love that Virginia gal!! I was married on Patsy's birthday and spent my honeymoon in Nashville, and the first night there my husband and I enjoyed the show "Always Patsy Cline". Terry Williams portrayed Patsy splendidly. Since 1997 I have gone to Winchester on September 8th. Everytime I go I thank Patsy for her incredible talent and how she has touched my life through the years. Going to Winchester each year I fall in love with the city and the people more and more. I live in Lancaster county, Pennsylvania, and we are 150 miles northeast of Winchester, but country music has a strong following in this county. Cheers to this web site and to all of Patsy's fans and loved ones who cherish her as much as we do in our household. God bless all of you out there!!! Sincerely, Wendy Fromm

Hello to Per & all... This is Julie. I hope everyone had a great Holiday Season & a wonderful New Year Celebration. I just wanted to stop by and say hello. I haven't had time to read much of the Forum on this 'trip' and I will be back to check in. I had some news I thought I would share with everyone... My daughter, Michelle, will be getting married this month. She and her 'husband-to-be' Nathan are still students here in Nashville, but they are 'in luv' and so we are having a weddin'! We are happy for them, and excited, even though we are a little stressed with all the plans! I hope you are well, and I pray a Great 2001 for you all. Thanks for all you do, Per...

Hi there Per and all! It's been such a long time but everything has been kinda busy around here - hey, when do we all ever have time to do anything anymore? I heard thru the grapevine that Patsy's family or some organization or something is in the process of designing a new grave marker for her. Is this true??? Is the legendary queen of country FINALLY going to get the marker that she deserves? (I know Mrs. Hensley designed Patsy's plaque which was simple and fitting, however since time has moved on, I believe the world has more of a realization of her talents and contribution to the music industry). Can you confirm this, Per? I've tried contacting Charlie & Julie with no success. Keep up the AWESOME work on the ULTIMATE Patsy Cline website! God Bless You all and God Bless our Patsy Cline! Your Friend, Jared
