In yesterday's episode of the ABC hit series, "Lost", it was a wonderful surprise to hear them play the original Patsy version of "Walkin After Midnight"! One of the characters actually played it on an old record player during a pivotal moment on the show. They are very picky about the few songs that ever play on "Lost", and it was great they recognize Patsy's talent to showcase her song in an episode of this mammoth hit show!

Hi Patsy fans,
On Sunday Nov. 27th 2005, the Kansas City Star put out an article about Mildred Keith who, as you all know, took one of the two last known photos of Patsy, it was in a supplement of the K.C. Star called "Star magazine". It gave Ms. Keiths account of how she happened to get the photo of Patsy. It is a very nice article for Patsy fans to read, I enjoyed it much. Ms Keith has kept a fine collection of photos of Country Music stars, and it was very interesting to me, as I keep anything and everything I can find concerning Patsy. Just thought fans might be interested in this insightful article.

From Philip Martin, President of Celebrating Patsy Cline, Inc.:

Childhood Home Now on National Register of Historic Places
Exciting News... "Spread the Word"... On November 17th, the National Park Service announced that the childhood home of Patsy Cline located at 608 South Kent Street in Winchester, Virginia, has been approved to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Many of you recall that the home accomplished a big hurdle in October when it was initially approved to be listed on the Virginia Registry. Now this prestigious national designation is even more special and noteworthy.

Patsy Cline Museum Newest Member of the Country Music Association
Also... More Great News: Effective today, The Patsy Cline Museum is the newest member of the Country Music Association (

I met Patsy in 1957 on Kent Street when she was just starting out as a singer. A friend of mine was also trying to be recognized in the music business and asked me to come along with him from Harrisonburg to visit Patsy. I just listened to their conversation about what they wanted to do and how to get recognition for their talents. She was a "down-to-earth" person and very friendly. That is the only contact I ever had with her as she went on with her career.

I recently came across a fold out "Tribute in Postage Stamps" to Patsy Cline. There are three envelopes with Patsy Cline stamps on each envelope and they are stamped "First Day of Issue" and postmarked "Nashville, TN 37203 Sept 25 1993".
I am interested in selling the product. If you are interested, please contact me and I can send you a picture.

It was a pleasure to listen to the music of Patsy when I was a student in Fort Collins, CO. The best songs in my opinion are "Sweet dreams", "Falling in pieces" and of course "Crazy".
Patsy for ever,

Hello all,
Patsy is back on prime time TV! I've just seen a commercial promoting a new television series comedy called "Hot Properties". They play Patsy's "Crazy" while advertising the new series. They say,"Trying to find a good man will drive you CRAZY!" I don't know anything about the show but I was glad to see they used Patsy's song. It was nice to hear "Crazy" on television during prime time.

I received my copy of "Sweet Dreams Still" yesterday. Through tears I watched these incredible performances. I've loved Patsy since I was 15 and saw her in "Coal Miner's Daughter." My friends were all into disco but I was hooked on Patsy. It was so great to hear her live and see her as she worked her magic. What a lady. Thank you to the family for protecting her legacy. I loved the video for "So Wrong". She looked so beautiful. I just wonder what might've been. But thank god we have the music and now this wonderful DVD.

If interested, Google has updated many of its images available on its satellite mapping feature. In addition, the resolution is better for the Winchester area sites, although still not as fine or large as for LA or NYC. On the "Other Satellite Images" page linked, the image for Mt St Helens volcano has changed drastically since their previously saved image! Click here.

Just received my copy of "Sweet Dreams Still" and although we are all thrilled to finally get to see some of this footage, I was rather disappointed with the quailty. It was also unusual how they cut off the end of "I Saw The Light" and wondered if anyone has any answers from an editing stand point? I've seen for Disney how they have restored older footage such as what we are viewing but can you all imagine how it would look and sound with what can be achieved today? I'm wondering if that process is very costly, and I'm sure time consuming as well.

I do believe, folks, that there will be another companion to this DVD in the future, because there is alot more footage yet to be released. For example the "PET MILK" performances with Bobby Lord, also doing "When I Get Thru With You" etc. not to mention other performances from the Glenn Reeves show, another Xmas song, "Winter Wonderland" to be exact, and "Gotta Lot Of Rhythm..." with her wearing the cowgirl outfit. I also read in one of Patsy's bios that she was once filmed in color for a TV show but this has never been confirmed.

It looked to me on the "Three Cigarettes...." DVD performance that she lip synced as she did for the "She's Got You" performance on "American Bandstand". My favorite is the "Come On In" alternate cut with that old house in the background from the DVD. Boy she was having herself a ball singing that one as she once said in the Cimmaron concert. You can tell she got into that one and really enjoyed herself. Most of us were never able to view Patsy on stage from the back angle with that big ole spotlight on her, and see what she saw while singing. This time we did and it gave us just a glimpse, and we can only imagine what it must have been like for her up there.

It was great to see the studio audience from her point of view enjoying what we all enjoy... hearing her sing, and we all still continue to enjoy hearing her sing after all these years... truly a legend... that's our MISS PATSY CLINE! Every few years, just when all we fans think we know, or saw just about everything on "THE CLINE", there she is once again to surprise the heck out of us all LOL!! I'm still waiting for the entire Dixie Jubilee performances to be released, which include Patsy doing Brenda Lee's "Fool #1" song originally written by her best friend Loretta Lynn, and heck, why are there no pictures of them ever together?

I know Charlie told me before that many of Patsy's things were stolen years ago, including pictures, letters etc. I also think the performances with Marvin Carroll should be on a future upcoming release, along with a few commercials she did as well. If you have not gotten your copy of "Sweet Dreams Still" you need to order yourself one.

Has anyone bought the Martina McBride CD "Timeless?" It's a true classic. She covers old country classics from "You Win Again" to "Rose Garden." It's nice to hear steel guitars and fiddles again. I only wish she had done at least one Patsy Cline song. I did not care for the "Sweet Dreams" she did on the tribute CD. I wanted the strings and the whole Cline treatment. But do go out and buy this CD. It's gonna win the grammies and CMA awards. Show people that classic country is not dead!

Greetings Patsy Cline fans, What a great site! Just returned from Winchester and a weekend of visiting Patsy's old stomping grounds. I have been a fan for years and only recently read one of her biographies. When I finished the book I was literally grieving her death. Her life moved me so much that I felt compelled to go to her gravesite and place some red roses on it. We listened to her 4 CD set on the 5 hour drive and visited her houses on Kent Street, the drug store, the future site of her museum and ate lunch at the Triangle Diner. The last stop was the cemetary. Placing flowers on her gravesite was an honor. I feel lucky to have had the opportunity. Patsy, you're the greatest.

I met Randy several years back at his Dad's... this was when Charlie lived at 1305 Bell Grimes Ln off Dickerson Rd... he has since moved. Randy was/is the SPLITTING IMAGE of his mother... facial features and all... he had the long, dark course hair, lips, nose and smile... it amazed me... especially by the fact that he is so intensly private. I told how much he favored his mother and he replied, "That's what they tell me"... a very quiet guy but a friendly one, too.
You have to respect his privacy even though it would be nice to see more of him involved with the fan orginization. I can only imagine how uncomfortable he would be having hundreds of people staring at him!

The triadal connection is quite simple, Jared. Stevie Nicks, Patsy Cline and Billie Holiday are all legends in their own rights. All three female vocalists were able to catch such magic in thier recordings by way of such raw, emotional power. In addition, all three vocalists have truly unique voices and truly unique phrasing. It's no wonder, for example, that in many biographies on Patsy Cline, there is mention of Billie Holiday. They both had a keen ear with respect to melodic phrasings. Perhaps that is why some authors and critics cite Holiday's vocals as an influence on Patsy, whether we know this to be founded in fact or not. =)

It's quite interesting to note that my ex-boyfriend's biggest musical interest was Stevie Nicks, and that mine has always been Patsy. For a time, we were able to bridge a musical understanding and heartfelt truth between the two, and were able to introduce one another to each others' wonderful music.

Hi hosses! Thanks for your replies. I appreciated them - especially yours, Mark ("(Randy) is the spitting image of Patsy - only with a beard.") What a hoot.

How about this funny article making fun of teen pop icon Jessica Simpson and praising our Patsy: had the following article:
"In related news, Jessica Simpson's forthcoming album, which she has described as a mix of Billie Holiday, Patsy Cline and Stevie Nicks (somewhere, fans of all three artists sob uncontrollably), has been bumped from its November release..."

HA! I loved it. And on another note, many of you may or may not know, but Erica Dawn and I have discussed quite a few times how many fans Patsy and Stevie Nicks both share. What are your opinions on the connection? Both are truly legends in their own rights!

Stevie Nicks' official website also has a mention of the postscript segment of the "Remembering Patsy" documentary where Julie talks about how she finds it awesome to see her mother's records hold standing with artists she loved growing up such as Elvis, Fleetwood Mac & The Eagles.

Oh, my goodness! "Sweet Dreams Still" is truly a gem. It is what all we hosses have been waiting for. At first, I was dismayed to learn when I had read the tune listings for the (at the time) forthcoming release that "Leavin' On Your Mind" wasn't included, but the bonus clips far make up for it! Lisa Flood is right when she says that us Patsy fans are never satisfied.

I don't know about all of you, but I couldn't help tearing up during the last chapter of the programme. Especially at the annoucer's introduction to "So Wrong" -- "That pretty introduction means only one thing, that it's time for our pretty girl vocalist, Miss Patsy Cline. To sing a great song she has with the Decca people, So Wrong!"

In the words of Johnny Mathis, "wonderful! wonderful!"

Comment: Thanks, Sean! /Per
Calling all hosses! Calling all hosses! If you haven't bought your copy of "Sweet Dreams Still" YOU are missing out! I ordered mine, got it in the mail today and watched it 5 times over. WHAT a treasure. Though I was somewhat disappointed that "Leavin' On Your Mind" didn't make it (as seen in "Remembering Patsy"), everything else was a winner! And the photos! Wow. There are candid photos I've never seen! I especially love the one of Patsy singing in the studio with Randy behind her on guitar (Bill Cox has posted it in his website's webboard - thanks Bill!) And secondly, I wish the interview with Charlie had been longer. Lorianne Crook interviews him with a few questions that I've always wondered - but too few. He's one of my 3 living people that I'd love to talk to, but I've never had the guts to call him like so many Patsy fans reportedly do. Have any of you?

Lastly, in the ending credits which feature pictures of Patsy's family now, which picture is of her son Randy? Is he the guy with the dark hair and beard or is he the guy with the wife and children portrait? I couldn't figure out which is Chip and which is Randy.

Anyhow, get this DVD. Sweet Dreams Come True!

Wonderful news about "Greatest Hits" selling 10 million copies. I knew this would happen.

A diamond for our diamond!

Here is the news.....

"Country legend PATSY CLINE has joined the exclusive Recording Industry Association Of America Diamond Club after selling 10 million copies of her GREATEST HITS album. Her "Greatest Hits" compilation was released in 1973 to mark the 10th anniversary of her tragic death.

"The prestigious Diamond Award represents the next quantum achievement in the music industry - U.S. sales of 10 million units for a single title. Just like diamonds, no two Diamond Award recipients are alike. They cover all genres of music ranging from pop, R&B, rap, rock and country to soothing instrumentals; from 21 year-old newcomers to established veterans; from a hit single to a five-disc box set. A true diamond mine of musical talent.

"Patsy Cline's "Greatest Hits" Diamond Award recognition joins the ranks of other notable recipients such as: The Beatles’ "Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band", Carole King’s "Tapestry", the Bee Gees’ "Saturday Night Fever", Michael Jackson’s "Thriller", Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band "Live/1975-1985", U2’s "The Joshua Tree", and Garth Brooks’ "No Fences".

"WOW! What an elite and very special "club" Patsy now joins.

P. Martin, CPC"

Hi everybody,
Just got finished watching the "Sweet Dreams Still" DVD and thoroughly enjoyed it. I especially like Patsy and Ferlin Husky singing "Let It Snow". It seemed like a very laid back atmosphere and you can tell they were really having a good time singing. After seeing Patsy, it reminded me of a question I asked Mom Hensley. I know that the excepted story of how Patsy "chipped" her tooth was by holding Bobby Pins with her teeth while doing her hair. I asked Mom Hensley about this, and she said that when Patsy lost her baby teeth, that one tooth that looked "chipped" was the last one to come in and it was a long time after the others had come in before that one finally came through. Mom Hensley said when it finally did come in, it had that indentation in it, and that it was always like that. Thanks, Per, for all the work!

I always enjoy reading the comments from the Patsy Cline fans from all over the world. I just saw the PBS special and from reading the recent posting here there are 7 performances on the new DVD available at that were NOT shown on the special. Would anyone be kind enough to let me and the other fans know exactly what was NOT included on the PBS special, so we know what to expect when we do finally receive our copies of the DVD? Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Linda

Hello fellow Patsy fans;
After viewing the PBS special on Patsy, I had to have the DVD. Seven bonus songs that were not on the special are also included on this compilation. It came in the mail two days after its release date via "Sweet Dreams Still" is truly great, it captures the spirit and the talent of Patsy Cline. I especially enjoyed her beaming smile at the end of the performances as well as the smiles on the faces of the musicians that accompanied her. Patsy could really deliver a song and this DVD is a testament to that. All of the videos are live perfomances and it is very clear that Patsy could be spectacular no matter what the circumstances.

If possible, try and hook up a good audio system before playing this DVD, to capture the full range of Patsy and her fellow musicians.
I would like to thank Charlie Dick and all the others who made this DVD possible. Any true music lover should have this DVD, and it is a "must have" for anyone who considers themselves a fan of this warm and gifted lady.
A Big Fan,

I know the fustration... searched my entire town and nobody's warehouse is carrying it... even Wal-mart said they had no orders for it! One would expect better promotion and marketing for this release... It all falls back to the company that released the DVD, I am told. Oh well, I purchased it thru and am tracking that baby all the way to my front door. Patsy is somewhere in Knoxville today, lol.
Good luck!

Hi everyone,
I'm an artist in San Francisco and I'm doing a piece on the possible irony in lyrical content of deceased musician's (last) songs. Well, I've been scouring the internet for the title of Patsy Cline's first song but have come up with nothing so far. Do any of you know the title? It would be a tremendous help.
Thanks and best wishes!

Well, after a full day's search... no "STILL". After many phone calls... no SDS. After surfing the web... nothing was SWEET! I recieved many emails from the Recliner Club, got many phone calls as well. All over this country, Patsifans were searching. I mean HELLO, we had this date in our minds for sometime now. I did go in to Bestbuy. I met the store manager by chance who was on the floor. He got me his number two guy who did order "STILL" for me. Now, I'm not against Amazon dot Com at all. Those of us who ordered from them will get it soon too. However, Bestbuy will get the DVD to anyone within a 2 day air process.

The guy that set up my order said he has been in the music store business for sometime, over 25 yrs. He said the DVD company/distributor Alliance Co. will only do "by special order requests". I was stunned. Wow, this DVD is only sold by online orders, so he says. However, if you go into Bestbuy, they will set up an in store order for you. I ordered more copies from them today. To buy one DVD w/under a week s/h costs, plus tax... comes to $18.00 even. It was an easy order and took only about 2 mins. Hope this helps others in our Patsy world. Who knows, maybe we'll see them on shelves in the future. Sean Sako Recliner Club/SYPC

Douglas, there are no commericial or audio recordings of Patsy doing Christmas songs. The "Sweet Dreams Still" video will include her and Ferlin Huskey dueting on "Let It Snow". There is another Christmas TV performance with Patsy and Red Foley dueting on "Winter Wonderland."

Jamey Ryan provided vocals for "Blue Christmas" in the movie "Sweet Dreams".

Patsy Cline is amazing, I've been singing her song "Crazy" since I could talk. It has been a favourite of the family and this year I will be singing "Crazy" on stage for my grandad, nan and of course Patsy. I am doing a biography for school this year and my teacher is looking foward to it, and I hope it will be successful! I love Patsy and always will.

Did anyone else notice the Patsy moment on "E.R?" The new season premired last night and the couple were looking for the runaway son. As they drove through the midwestern night, "Leavin' On Your Mind" was playing softly in the background. It was cool to hear Patsy on tv again. Anyone else hear Patsy on anything different lately?

Somewhere down the line we're related. I love her, miss her and still till this day I listen to her music and cry.

Hello every1, well I wanted to let every1 know that I knew 1 Patsy Cline fan!! My Auntie Cynthia!! She had actually recorded herself singing "Crazy", she had such a great voice! I am thankful that she did record herself, or we would have the memories of her beautiful voice. She past away from cancer. But we have that tape to listen to her sing "Crazy" at her best. Thanx Patsy Cline, for making that song and many more.

Mr. Poole, Forgive me. I failed to include in my post about the crash that those theories were simply my opinion. My comments about the report is simply my interpretation of it. My opinions should not be held out as fact. I think people should research for themselves and form their own opinions. I certainly did not intend to desecrate anyone, I simply stated what I thought after reading the documents. If anyone misinterpreted my thoughts as the truth I'm truly sorry.

Supposedly Patsy sang both "Sweet Dreams" and "Faded Love" in the final concert. Makes sense as she was releasing both. As for the reasons for the crash, its pilot error. Lets not desacrate her memory by spinning outlandish tales that probably have no validity. Lets remember her and her music has the gift that we recieved in this lifetime. Been a "Clineite" since I was 16 and intend for her music to be the music I'm rolled outta here to!

Thanks to all of you who've written with the kind emails regarding those unearthed videos that you Patsy diggers have found. I appreciate your feedback!

I've had so many people write to inquire about where I found the Patsy "Someday" video. I found it on Limewire.Com.

Lastly, Happy Birthday to "The Hoss Almighty", whose birthday we celebrate every time she crosses our minds or whenever we hear her voice. Maybe when we get up there, she'll be standing with Saint Peter singing "Come on In". Wouldn't THAT "be a kick in the head!"

Duane - in response to your entry (and hosses, correct me if I'm wrong), I don't believe that there is any video footage of Patsy Cline singing "Sweet Dreams". She recorded the song (along with "Always" and "Blue Moon of Kentucky") on February 5, 1963 - exactly one month later she died on the same day. It wasn't released until after her death - and a shame it is too being that is one of her most beautifully haunting recordings. In fact, I don't even think she performed it at her last concert, as depicted in the movie - at least according to the accounts I've read of the show. She closed with "I'll Sail My Ship Alone", ironically the last song she ever recorded. Her last TV appearances (one a week or so before her death) are featured on the new DVD coming out at the end of this month, "Sweet Dreams Still".

I just ran across the CMT video of "Crazy" which I'd never seen before... she states in conversation about Grandpa Jones' performance "I hope I have that much energy when I get to be 83" and the tears just flowed. All I can say is that I don't know a Country or Pop performer that is more alive than Patsy Cline! Had she only known. I hope she does!

Some of the other hosses have told me that there's footage of "When I get Through With You" and others... where are you all finding these gems?! Let me in on the secret! LOL

You all take care!

It's been a while since I was last here. The site looks great. I now live in Las Vegas, and been here for 2 years now. I have to share this story for all of you: Last summer, I had just gotten off of work and I stopped at a nearby Albertson's Grocery Store to pick up groceries, when I got to the check-out lane I saw a basket of DVD's for $5.99, so I did what we all do; I look though the basket and found a DVD copy of "Sweet Dreams" (only copy in the basket, too). I was suprised because we all heard that the movie was out of circulation. I bought the DVD due to the "what chance" of seeing it again. So to all those looking for the movie on VHS or DVD. Keep looking you will find that diamond if you just look in any place posible.

Hello Patsy fans,
I just watched the Patsy Cline/Bobby Lord duet of "Someday". It's fantastic! Patsy was so quick and witty! She was just beautiful. She was wearing one of the gold or silver lamé dresses that she so liked. You can't tell which color because it's in black and white. You could tell the song was "off the cuff" with no rehearsals or practice, but they did a great job of it! Keep up the faith and spinning those Patsy tunes.

Hello all - It's Sean Sako again. I just got back from Winny! It was so much fun. I can't get over how nice everyone was. We missed all who didn't get to go this year. I got to meet with all the big Patsy folks, that run web sites and all. The marker in front of Patsy's home is just wonderful. A lot larger than what I was picturing. The future Museum is big and ready to get set up for a possible March opening.

As for the new news in here about the Someday clip, well a friend of Bill Cox set it up for his site. After that, many of us also posted it on our sites too. Yes, Patsy is amazing! The talkin' part is great! Speakin' of Bill Cox, he won a DVD of "Sweet Dreams Still". Well, let me tell you... me, Jimmy Walker, Mr. Mark, and Bill sat in my room and watched in excitment! It is off the hook! A must buy! Patsy is just too much in the new song clips.

Well bye for now. Gonna unpack, I'll send more info soon. Sean

Hi Per and all! I was online tonight... downloading music... and came upon a video of Patsy singing "Someday (You'll Want Me to Want You)" from 1963. It looks to be from the same peformance featured on "Remembering Patsy", (1993) where Patsy sang "Leavin' On Your Mind". Anyhow, she sings it with Bobby Lord, and before it starts, she jokes around with him about hoping to know his version of it, which is a little bit more peppy than Patsy's. But - wow - how beautiful she looks, how great she always sings and my gosh, how she makes me cry every time I hear her sing. Although Patsy sings harmony with Bobby, she does it flawlessly as usual!

I remember being a kid visiting the Ryman years ago and the tour guide said that many musicians who worked with Patsy were always amazed at how she had such perfect pitch. For instance, if she said "Let's do it in B flat, boys", she didnt even have to hear the chord played for her - it was in her head already!

Anyhow, just wanted to say "hello" to everyone. Thanks, as always, Per for this site, and everyone please keep our friends along the Gulf Coast in your thoughts... and count your blessings.

Your Hoss,

Per, in response to the comments about the plane crash:

According to the complete official crash report, which is extremely detailed including drawings and photos and such, the official cause of the crash was ruled as pilot error.

There was a suit filed against Kathy Hughes by Stueyvescent(sp?) Insurance Co. in order not to have to pay the claim due to the cause being ruled as pilot error. I know that Charlie and the other families were involved in having to sue Kathy in order to receive any settlement money. I believe, if I remember correctly from reviewing the court documents, the other families recieved $33,000 each. But don't hold me to that amount. I'd have to review the documents I have in order to verify that. Reading Kathy's depositions in the insurance case was very interesting to say the least. My mind went from everything including the possibility that Randy committed suicide to the idea that Patsy and Randy really were an item and planning to be together. One thing that leads me to that speculation is we know the rumours about Patsy being pregnant at the time and her supposed plans to divorce Charlie, but also that Kathy Hughes was married 6 months after the crash. I realize it was a different time and she did have children that were expected to have a father, but you don't lose your husband suddenly and unexpectedly and then marry in 6 months time unless you knew the person before. It just didn't add up. Plus there were so many contradictions in Kathy's depositions with things she's said publicly elsewhere.

I have a copy of the official crash report if you'd care to post it somewhere, but I'll warn you, it's long.

Patsy has been chosen as artist of the week on a BBC radio 2 program. Tracks to be played selected by requests. It is only Sunday afternoon 5pm to 7pm UK time on BBC Radio two, The Ed Stewart Show. This can be heard online at and then navigate to the listen live page.

The producer tells me there will be "Crazy" (as it is for gone conclusion this will get most requests) and 2 or 3 other tracks.

However, if a few requests for other tracks arrive at then maybe "Crazy" will be replaced by another track. Don't get me wrong. "Crazy" is good but it is probably the only track that the majority of the UK public have heard. So lets educate them by getting other tracks played on the BBC.

Yes, is the right address. Ed Stewart, who many years ago got the nickname Stewpot from one of the children's programs he presented.

Robyn Jones
Syracuse, NY USA - Monday, August 29, 2005 at 02:28:28 (CEST)
Comment: The pilot (and Patsy's manager) Randy Hughes was not instrument rated. He could only fly visually. And en route to Nashville from Dyersburg he was supposedly surprised by very bad weather, with little or no visibility, and since he lost visual contact with the ground, and couldn't fly by instruments, he lost control of the plane. I have also read, somewhere, that someone near Camden had heard a small plane that seemed to have engine problems. Right now, without checking any books and stuff, I am uncertain if it ever was established if it was a combination of bad weather and engine problems, or if the bad weather alone was said to be the cause. Maybe someone else is updated on the facts? /Per
I'm upset with the forthcoming release of "Patsy Cline: Sweet Dreams Still". The performance listing is somewhat stingy in its offerings. The bonus material will be well-received, no doubt; however, the main program omits such essentials as "Leavin' On Your Mind", "When I Get Through With You" and "Imagine That", all of which exists filmed performances. I had a suspicion that this DVD release would be somewhat underachieving, perhaps to fuel future releases.

I grew up listening and seeing pictures of Patsy Cline. I think if she was alive today, she still would be a big star to many out there. I really enjoyed her song "Sweet Dreams", it always had meaning for me growing up. Just her voice I guess I really enjoyed. She still is a beautiful woman.

Patsy Cline was a very good singer. Just before she had her car accident with her brother, while they went to the store together, Patsy asked her mother if she could watch her two kids while she and her brother went to the store together. Patsy went into the store to get some beer for her husband Charlie. Patsy came out of the store with the beer for her husband. Patsy and her brother went home, they were talking on their way home. Patsy said "look out", but it was too late. Patsy and her brother got hit by a car.

Lawrence, MA - Friday, August 26, 2005 at 21:36:48 (CEST)
Comment: Well, I think that you may have been watching the movie "Sweet Dreams" a little too closely... Not everything in that movie is true. Patsy and her brother did not go to the store to get Charlie some beer, as they said in the movie. They went to get Patsy's mother material for some dresses she was going to make for Patsy. And their car was not hit from the side by a truck, as shown in the movie. It was a head-on collision with another car that was trying to pass another vehicle. Those are just two of the facts that were changed in the movie. Another very obvious fact that was also changed, is the plane crash. The plane did not crash into a mountain wall, as shown in the movie. It crashed into the ground in the woods. /Per
Currently, "Tra Le La Le La Triangle" is only available on "The Patsy Cline Collection" 4-CD Box Set from MCA Nashville.

However, it is included on "The Patsy Cline Story" (MCA MCAD-4038 or 76732-4038-2) from 1988, which is still available in shops, and of course on "The Patsy Cline Collection" 4-CD box set from 1991. /Per

Hey all in the Mountain West region...

Make plans now to see "Always, Patsy Cline" at Salt Lake City's Grand Theater. This encore presentation runs Sept. 9 - 24.

I don't work for the theater or any advertising agency. I simply saw this show last year and it blew me away! Likewise, the show received rave reviews in Salt Lake's daily statewide newspapers (these weren't just the local 500 people circulation newsletters). The theater, I'm told, decided to bring the show back this year based on popular demand (as the saying goes).

An undiscovered young, rising talent named Erica Hansen plays Patsy and she is BRILLIANT!!! I saw the play mutiple times, and night after night I could hear audience members asking if she was lip syncing or really singing? Yes, she was that convincing and yes, it was her own vocal power.

So, anyway, there's my plug for the show. If anyone is passing through the Salt Lake area, stop by and see it. You will not be disappointed! This is a show not to be missed.

I can confirm that there is at least one copy of the program from Kansas City that has Patsy's name listed. I am part owner of a copy that was purchased with a few of my friends and fellow fans. If everything is still on track the program will be displayed in the museum when it opens in March, 2006.

Aside from that I don't know of any other promotional materials that would have included Patsy. However, I was surprised to learn about the program. So, like everything else that's been "discovered" I wouldn't be surprised if someone "finds" something someday.

The song "Who Can I Count On" sounds like a duet. Is it just Patsy overdubbing herself or is it a duet? If it is a duet, who is the other voice? Thanks!
David Hollinger <>
Titusville, FL USA - Friday, August 12, 2005 at 20:28:57 (CEST)
Comment: It is Patsy overdubbing herself. That technique was also used in "Yes, I Understand", "How Can I Face Tomorrow" and "Crazy Dreams", and those three songs are available both with and without the overdubbed harmony vocals. Most records contain the version with the harmony vocals, but the Vocalion album "Here's Patsy Cline" contains non-harmony versions of "Yes, I Understand" and "How Can I Face Tomorrow", and the Decca album "That's How A Heartache Begins" contains the non-harmony version of "Crazy Dreams". As far as I know, there is no version of "Who Can I Count On" without the overdub.
Personally, I think that one of the best recordings ever made, using overdubbing techniques, is Kay Starr's recording of "Side By Side" from 1952, where she sings duet with herself! I think that is a fantastic recording, especially the second half of the song, where she really excelles! By the way, Kay Starr was one of Patsy's idols... /Per

I have always liked Patsy's music and I think that she was one of the greatest women in country music. She opened the doors for other women so that they could sing country music.

Hello everyone, It's Sean Sako again. I hope this finds everyone well.

Today on the tv show Rosseanne, they talked about our fav gal Patsy. One of Rosseanne's friends got dumped and was upset. Rosseanne then said "don't go home now and cry and play your Patsy Cline records all nite"! It was great.

This opens up how others view Patsy. We love her so much as big time fans, yet many listen to Patsy not only for the "ups" but for the "downs" too. Just goes to show Patsy is multi-emotion. Hence--Luv songs.

I woke up to a box by my front door. I guess I didn't see it there last nite when I came in. I bet you know what I'm gonna say... yes, it was a Patsy record I got off of ebay. So, the record is playin', I'm surfin' about Patsy at my fav site, and my water is ready for tea. What else could I want on my Sunday?

I got a wonderful email the other day about Patsy from a fan. She said she got my email from here and wanted to know more about Nashville. It shows that this site is "the" home for all Patsy fans. Thank God and Per it's still here! I have dropped by for Years, yes like so many I'm on the forum all the way back to the 90's when it got up and running. No matter how much we surf, start our own sites, or know about Patsy... Per is always here. So today on my website, my Recliner Club honors today as "Per day" this 7th day of August 2005.

Personally, I have a policy not to write anything about the members of Patsy's family, since I don't want to violate their privacy, but Patsy's daughter Julie has written several entries in this forum over the years, where she has volunteered lots of information about many things. So, simply browse through this forum and read her entries. They are presented in blue color, so they are easy to spot. Her first entry is way back, on page 1. And there are also a couple of entries by Patsy's husband Charlie. /Per
Dear Mel Dick, Thanks a Whole lot for personally contacting me about the gathering in Winchester. It was a very nice thing for you to call me and give me all the information that I needed. We had a great conversation and I am going to do my best to be in Winchester this year. "If the Lord Is willing and the creek does not rise." Thanks again and God Bless You all.

Hi to all of "the hosses"! I'm really excited about the Labor Day festival coming up - never been and planning to go - and looking forward to meeting so many of you "Patsy buddies" in person!

This thought crossed my mind... I wonder if Charlie has thought about writing a book about his life with Patsy from then to the present? It wouldn't have to be tell-all, but man what a lucky guy he was/is!

God Bless all of you and as always, thanks Per!

Your Hoss,

"As I sit here late at night listening to Patsy singing 'Sweet Dreams Of You' and other songs in this far away place, it takes me way back to my youth when Patsy was still alive. Another time. Another place. It would have been nice to know her. That she died so tragically, so young and while on the top of her career has meaning in this place, where unfortunately the same also happens. It just seems right to listen to her here. Haunting yet so beautiful a voice. Rest in peace, Patsy.

I love Patsy Cline. She is the best country artist by far. I was first introduced to her by a friend of mine named Julie Johnson, she is a country music artist and she sings some Patsy Cline. I am thirteen. I have liked Patsy Cline since I was twelve, and I have always (since I was 2) referred to the willow tree as a weeping willow. I have always known who Patsy Cline was, how she died, and what she sang, but never really listened to it. Sincerely, me

Hello Julie, I have been working on my family tree for over 12 yrs and I just found out today that Your Dear Mother is related to me through the Meadows Family. Her line, as you probably know, is through Francis Meadows and Mary K. Bell. His son James is Patsy's line and mine is through James's brother William Soloman Meadows. When I found out the information about your grandmother and grandfather, I swelled up with so much pride when I found out we are connnected. Thank you so much for your time. Take care of yourself!

I saw Patsy perform at the Turner's Arena in Washingon, DC, and met her in the fifties. She was very friendly, I don't think Patsy ever met a stranger. I have enjoyed her songs from the fifties 'till today. My mother loved Patsy's music. Mother and Patsy are in heaven with Jesus. I know they are singing and talking about the good old days.
I will always love Patsy's music. Sweet dreams,

Dear Julie Fudge, I sent a letter to you about a year a go. I also sent a CD called Mark Ison "Born To Serve The Lord". I was wondering if you received the letter and the CD. I hope you and the family enjoyed it, if you received it. I have been a fan of your mother's music for over twenty years and I wish that I had the honor of meeting and knowing her. No one will ever be able to sing as well as her. Around October of last year I renewed my membership to the Always Patsy Cline fan club. I did not receive anything to confirm that I am a member. I wish that someone would let me know if I will be allowed to go to the banquet in Winchester this year, and how and where should I make my reservations. Please contact me soon. God Bless YOU,

I love singing Patsy Cline Karaoke. I have so much fun singing with the Patsy Cline Karaoke CD I bought. I go to bars and I have sang... "Blue Moon Of Kentucky", "Crazy", "I Fall To Pieces", and the best one of all that I always began with is my favorite song, "Leavin' On Your Mind". I have had standing applause and I even had someone cry and tell me that I made them feel so good with my voice. I do know that is what Patsy did too!! I hope that one day I will be were Patsy was, and will always be in Nashville by other singers. I have been told that I even sound like her!! Well, hope I can find others on this forum who may be able to help me make it farther or to just talk.

Anyway, Julie has written several entries in this Fan Forum over the years. Just browse through the pages, her entries are easily recognized, since I have presented them in blue color. And there are also a couple of entries by Patsy's husband Charlie. /Per

I love this site, it is so informative, everything you want to know about Patsy is here. I was raised on country music and Patsy was one of the first I heard, "Sweet Dreams" is my all time favorite song of hers. There have been many who have tried to copy her style, my advice to them is... Give it Up... There was only one Patsy. The pictures are just awsome. I hope everyone enjoys this site as well as I have. God Bless Patsy's family and her Fans.

I've searched in the UK, and they are listing a DVD called "Patsy Cline - Greatest Hits" for release on October 24. There is currently no information about the content, more than that the running time is 70 min. It is released by Quantum Leap Group Limited, and is Region 0. I have no idea if this is something similar to the "Sweet Dreams Still" DVD, or if it is something totally different. Time will tell, I suppose...

Regarding that AmSouth display; Lisa Flood has a b/w picture at her Patsified site that shows Patsy wearing a similar outfit. Click here to see it! The blouse is not the same as in the AmSouth display, the buttons differ. I don't know if the blouse in the display was Patsy's, or if it is a replica? Note: Lisa's version of the picture is cropped, and doesn't show Justin Tubb and Hank Cochran standing to Patsy's left. The complete picture can be seen in Doug Hall's book "The Real Patsy Cline" on page 73, although the picture quality isn't very good.

The items on display at the AmSouth Bank in Nashville are on loan from the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. So, their history is known.

One point about the gold boots. Patsy owned more than one pair of them. She was wearing a pair of them at the time of the plane crash.

Knoxville, TN USA - Thursday, July 07, 2005 at 22:13:23 (CEST)
OH WOW. I just saw the (new?) pic of the display at AM South Bank in Nashville in the Places heading. DO they know about that outfit? That's the one Patsy was banned from the Opry from (Grant Turner said he thought she looked good in it and could've worn it onstage... but where is the matching vest?) And those boots are the Chug-A-Boots she bought and wore on the Showcase & Heartaches album covers!!! I wish they knew! I almost went bananas when I saw that! Wonder if they'd care to make a donation to the museum in Winchester? HAHA!

Hi my "Patsy puppies",
It is near that time of year when we get down the luggage, dust it out and get ready to pack up for the best wonderful exciting happy week-end ever... Our Patsy Cline fan-club gathering in "Winnie" (that would be Winchester, Virginia). "Ya all come now" ... "we will be there with bells on", as the saying goes. Yahoo! See you there.
Love, Anne, Norm and family...

Hey everyone, I have a question to anyone who knows. Patsy was recording in Nashville under the direction of Owen Bradley at the same time as Burl Ives. Ives was produced by Milt Gabler, yet his recordings were directed by Bradley, in the same studio as were Patsy's. Does anyone know if they knew each other and were friends at all?

Hey Per and all! I hope everybody's doing well, and I'm glad to hear that the Patsy booth at the CMA Festival was a great success! That's the way to keep the flame alive!

I just wanted to let everyone know that my friend Leigh at DottieWest.Net has posted a few Patsy Cline wallpapers that I've created for people to use on their computers - now it'll truly be a "PC". LOL. (okay, bad joke...) Anyhow, the direct link to that page is

I hope everybody's summer is going well! May God Bless You all, and as always, here's to you Per, for a great website to The Cline!

Hey Per, it's been a long time since I've visited, and I must say that your page looks wonderful! Keep up the good work. I was listening to some of Nelson Riddle's finer arrangements on assorted vocal LPs I have in my collection. Riddle was Captiol Records' in-house arranger and conductor in the late 50s-early 60s, and worked with such legendary artists as Dinah Shore, Dean Martin, Peggy Lee and Frank Sinatra.

Whilst bathing myself in the sweet strains of his melodic, sting-laided and wonderfully rhythmical arrangements, a thought struck me. Wouldn't it have been wonderful if Patsy ever had the chance to work with Riddle at Capitol? I can almost hear her velvety-smooth voice back with lush orchestral and rhytmic arrangements by Riddle in my mind. Whenever I play Patsy's "Try Again", one of my favourite songs of her early work, the softer, cocktail-lounge laid-back stylings of Riddle immediately come to mind. What wonderful joy would it have been if he arranged an album of her singing standards. I'd "fall to pieces" if I heard such an album, which would include songs like:

"Try Again"
"Ev'ry Time We Say Goodbye"
"True Love"
"Always True To You In My Fashion"
"I Can't Believe That You're In Love With Me"
"You're Nobody (Till Somebody Loves You)"
"Whispering Grass"
"Sentimental Journey"
"Then I'll Be Tired of You"
"Cheek to Cheek"
"The Glory of Love."

Comment: I agree. Nelson Riddle is great. One of my favorite recordings is Dinah Shore's version of "Sentimental Journey" with Nelson Riddle's orchestra! /Per

I just looked on and saw that there will be a DVD anthology release in September of Patsy's performances. I don't have much information regarding the DVD except that it is titled "Patsy Cline Sweet Dreams Still". Research it for more information.
