My wife Lori is a huge fan and tribute artist of Patsy here in Canada. She has sevaral handmade costumes, but I am always looking to add to her collection. With a birthday rapidly approaching I wanted to add another. I was looking at having a white "cowgirl" outfit made. Did Patsy have one of these, if so how can I get a picture of one to have a seamstress make one.

Or is there one out there I could purchase? Lori is about the same stature of Patsy.

Can anyone help me out there?

I somehow managed to find song samples on the Internet from the aforementioned boxed set, and have heard them for myself. So you don't have to bother replying to my query. Some of the songs do differ slightly from the original recordings, having been electronically altered to give them a somewhat stereo sound (I know next to nothing of how this is done). Thank you.

I stumbled on a publicity shot of a young lady standing behind a microphone that is from the fifties era. I'm about 95 percent sure it is a young Patsy Cline. On the back it is stamped "Photo by Ray Snyder". If anyone can help me out and let me know it would sure be appreciated. The photo is a 9x7 and a beautiful photograph of the young lady smiling. I've searched through Patsy Cline sites with photos of her and I'm pretty sure it's her. Oh yes, the photo is black and white. E-mail me at thank you. Patsy lives on in the 21st century...

Does anyone own the Cline boxed set "Her Original Four Star Hits"? If so, are all the songs in stereo, as claimed? I'd appreciate your reply. Thank you.

I am now 49 years old, born in 1957. At the age of 14 I first put Patsy's album on to play at my sister's home while I swept the floor. I kept repeating the album and said to myself what a beautiful singer. I have idolised Patsy all my life and now I do Karaoke in the pubs and clubs in Lightning Ridge and surrounding areas and I always sing her songs. I know all her songs and I also love "Poor man's Roses" as Patsy did.

I wish that I had the chance to meet Patsy, it would have been the greatest experience of my life. I absolutely love Patsy, I feel her song in my heart when I sing them, it feels like I really knew her. One day when I win the lottery I will go and visit the places where Patsy lived and sang, it would be a dream come true. When I read about the plane crash it makes me so sad to think that a woman with such talent could die in such a way. Imagine if she lived, how popular or what a bigger star she would have been. I love her and idolise the ground she walked on. I can say that I am a truely dedicated fan, always was and always will be.

I have a story about Ms. Cline that some of you will find interesting. I do quite a lot of traveling and about a year ago I found myself in the mountains of North Thailand. Since some of the places I visit are quite inaccesible for radio waves, I always make it my priority to carry my MP3, which contains appx. 4000 songs, amongst these, most of Patsy's songs.

I was staying in a Hmong village on the province of Pisnolock, Koa Ko and as I was laying in a hammock I started my MP3 and played an album of Patsy's music. Immediately a small crowd of Hmong (a very musical people) gathered around and enthusiastically clapped after each song. They began to ask me all kind of questions about the singer (name, where from...) which I tried my best to answer.

The next day as I woke up and went out of the hut I was staying in, I was greeted by the sight of several hundred Hmong asking for Patsy's songs so, of course, I obliged. The reception was even better than the day before. The only fact I forgot to mention to them was that Ms Cline had passed away quite a few years before. I was asked by one of the attendees the whereabouts of Ms Cline and that's when I told them that she had died in an airplane accident.

A quiet hush was followed by a single wailing from an older woman and quickly the entire 200 plus audience joined her in a defeaning wail. I had never seen anything like it, it was as if a family member had suddenly died - as mentioned they place value on music - and that evening and for the next three days they had a formal wake in her honor... It was amazing to me to see how powerful her music still is.

When I arrived to the USA I bought all of the different recordings I could find of Ms Cline and sent it to them... I have not been back in a while, and the Hmong don't believe in mail (something about bad luck) but I'm sure those tapes are getting worn to death. I just thought you might enjoy this story.

Hi this is Larry again... After seeing Chrissy's post below and talking about Logan Wells and the things they do for people that can't do for themselves... I want to put Logan's web site here.. Also, Chrissy, I hope your benifit raised a million dollars for the 2 children... Also, if you have a web site please give it... Altho Patsy may be gone, her songs still do much good... While Logan and Chrissy both do tributes to Patsy, they are not impersonators, just great singers in their own right... Wouldn't it be great some time to see these two appear together for a benefit... Sort of a battle of the singers thing... Logan's site is or Also keep a lookout for anything that Chrissy might post... Thank you for allowing me to post this here... You are all great...

I really enjoyed reading what was written on here. I've been a Patsy fan for a while, and her songs are so precious and beautiful. I don't remember when it was that I heard her voice for the first time, but I know my mom is a fan, and would sing or play her music, and it was then that I fell in love with Patsy Cline. Now I find, as a 24 year old, that not so many people my age appreciate the REAL music, and it's sad, and unbelievable because Patsy is phenominal, and she paved the road for many more to come. Although she's been gone for many years, her music will forever be in my heart, my mind and my spirit. Her life was short, but Patsy is timeless...

I've always wished that a least a plaque could be put on display in the lobby of Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kansas, acknowledging that it was at that venue that Patsy Cline gave her last ever performance. It's just an idea! Maybe Universal Music, the Country Music Foundation, the Kansas City, Kansas city government, and Patsy Cline organizations like this one could make this happen.

Hello, about Logan Wells, haven't seen her, but from what you described of her sounds sweet. I think the best thing about someone who performs should keep a humble heart and sounds as though she's got it! I've got a show tomorrow and I CAN'T wait! It's such a good cause too, it's a charity event for Tara Grant's children. (Tara was brutally killed by her husband and left behind 2 beautiful young children). All the money earned goes right into a trust fund for those little ones. It sure can't bring their mom back, but maybe it can help them financially in the future years. Anyway, take care!

Hi everyone... While I know no one will take Patsy's place. Recently I was able to catch Miss Logan Wells doing a tribute to Patsy at the Las Vegas Hilton... This Lady is amazing... Both Patsy and Jim Reeves recorded a song called "Have you ever been lonely"... After both of their untimely deaths their studios mixed their voices into a duet. This lovely lady invited me on stage to sing this song with her... The fact that I can't sing didn't matter to her. Afterwards I got to thinking. That was just the type of thing that Patsy would have done... A once in a lifetime thing. If you ever get a chance to see Logan, don't miss it... As Patsy was, this lady is wonderful...
Thank you,

I just want to say that Patsy Cline has the most beautiful voice that ever was ... next to Karen Carpenter, that is. :) Those two women really had talent! I just wish I could have been around sooner to have seen them live. OH, I'm so excited!!! - I just got contacted by my agent and I'm going to be performing at the Michigan State Fair August 24th for about 450,000 people!!! (I am a Patsy Cline tribute artist for those who don't know) Not an easy thing to do filling her boots, but what fun it is!!!

On this day, 1956 (51 Years ago) a young Charlie Dick has the pleasure of spending some quiet personal time with a young Patsy Cline. Patsy is a young and upcoming local singer, with whom Charlie has had the opportunity to dance with on occassion. Miss Cline usually doesn't get to spend a lot of time away from the bandstand when she is working. On this particular evening, Charlie is able to convince her to go out for some fresh air... and you know the rest of the story. This actually occured on Friday, the 13th of April, 1956 in Berryville, VA... Who says Friday the 13th is unlucky!?!?

Top-notch "Always" is a tribute with heart

By Wendell Brock
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Published on: 04/06/2007

"Always ... Patsy Cline"

The verdict: You'd be crazy for not trying to catch it.

We all like to imagine that we could be friends with the artists we admire. I don't mean painters, because pictures can be remote. Or movie stars, because they are often too grandiose to come down from the clouds.

I'm talking about singers. Earthy lounge acts. Cabaret divas. Those big-band canaries of yesteryear. Even the occasional "American Idol" contender. Because singing can be, should be, intimate and emotionally revealing. As tender and personal as a whisper. Or a kiss.

Patsy Cline oozed the kind of realness that makes those who are unhappy or unlucky in love feel less alone —- and Ted Swindley's "Always ... Patsy Cline" captures the way one Cline fan charmed her way into the heart of the big-voiced, Virginia-born songbird who died in a plane crash in 1963.

Backed by a terrific six-piece band, "Always" has parked itself at the 14th Street Playhouse to bodacious effect. Directed by the playwright himself and starring Cindy Summers as Patsy and Gwen Hughes as her ingratiating admirer, Louise, it's a top-notch production that feels as warm and welcoming as the cozy '50s dinette set where the two friends gather for a late-night plate of bacon and eggs.

Though Hughes has been a busy jazz singer around town for years, here she gets to unveil a comedic side that's as vivid and unruly as her character's orange-hennaed hair. To be honest, her big-as-Texas performance is so over-the-top and her twang so exaggerated that they take a little getting used to. At the other end of the spectrum, Summers is so well put together that she reminds you more of a daytime soap queen than a pint-size country gal.

Yet somehow, Summers' exquisite control and Hughes' warp-speed physicality make surprisingly compatible bedfellas. With her clenched smile, coy winks and dynamic renderings of the Cline repertoire, Summers seduces the audience without lifting a pinky, while Hughes bulldozes the crowd with her molasses-thick accent and Lucy-at-the-honky-tonk shtick. One small caveat: Though Cline died at 30, Summers seems to have overshot that number by at least a decade. Yet done up in an endless wardrobe of sequins and fringe (costumes are by Summers and Sandra Payne), she does more than just channel Patsy Cline. Wearing the confidence of her own remarkable talent as snugly as Patsy's pink skirt, she's pure radiance and charisma.

Like "Ain't Misbehavin'", "Always ... Patsy Cline" —- based on the true story of Cline and her friend Louise Seger —- is more than just a musical revue. It's a bighearted, crowd-pleasing entertainment that suggests celebrities are often just regular people, hungry for the human touch.

I looked through this formal and saw a couple of questions about Patsy's children. Randy is not married and has no children and he prefers a private life. Julie and her husband Richard have three kids, Michelle, Andrew and Christopher. Michelle and her husband Nathan have three kids, Cole who will be six in august, Claire who will be 3 in august and Ruthie who will be 1 in july!
I hope this answers everyone's question, and yes, her second husband Charlie is still alive.
Great site, Per, it just gets better every year. Hope you enjoyed your easter!

This is a beautiful site tributed for Patsy. Valleybladder has just opened for the Winchester and surrounding areas. The focus is more political and local news. Please come and post the progress as you are updated regarding the new museum. I am not personally connected to this project, but would like info from your fanbase posted on our local forum. Valleychatter has failed to provide the support that Patsy's legacy deserves. Thanks and great tribute site!

Comment: That video is, I think, the first documentary made about Patsy. I have it on VHS, and my copy is from 1989. There is also one called "Remembering Patsy", and my copy of that is from 1993. And then you have the "Sweet Dreams Still" DVD that was released in 2005. /Per
Hello all,
Just saw a video of George Jones on GAC. It is GREAT!!! The song is "Funny How Time Slips Away" written by Willie Nelson. George does a tribute in pictures of all the old Opry stars from the 1940's until present day. Of course George included a picture of he and Patsy! Included are Tammy Wynette, Nancy Jones, Loretta Lynn, B.B. King and countless others. The video is very tastefully done. George is on stage and the surroundings are very sophisticated, a very elegant video. I really appreciate George including Patsy in his video and not forgetting what a good friend Patsy was. THANKS George! Also, I teach a teenage discipleship class at my church. I keep an "Always Patsy Cline" bookmark from 1999 in my bible to keep my place for this class. One of the students said, where are we at in the bible. I said, "Well, let me see, Patsy will tell us." The student said, "Who?", and I said, "Patsy Cline." and told them about the bookmark. They all looked at me like I'd just fell off the turnip truck! I was dumbfounded, these are high school students so I was really shocked that none of them knew who Patsy was! Well, let me tell you, not only am I teaching them about the bible, but I'll also enlighten them on Patsy too! Ha! People, we've got to teach the young ones about THE HOSS!

A good frame would only need to confirm with you the size of the sleeve and record to create a frame for you. You can then fit the sleeve and record into the frame yourself. But bear in mind that printed material on display can fade in bright light, so you need to consider how often it is on display.

You are right about Patsy's generousity to others. Earlier this month I met someone who had known her, and her kindness and willingness to help others was mentioned as one of the qualities that endeared her to so many.

I just came back from a trip to New Hampshire. On the way up we had to go through Winchester. This was my first time in the city. I got directions and visited the cemetary where Patsy is buried. This was something I have wanted to do for a long time and was glad I finally got the chance to. I visited the plane crash site a few years ago.

I was going through my mother's record albums, and found one she took somewhere, and had it signed in fountain pen by Patsy Cline and dated 1957. I played the album today, as it has not been played since my mother passed, twenty years ago. I have no idea where my mother went to get Patsy's autograph, since I was six at the time, and don't recall. I do recall when Patsy died in a plane crash, my mother was very upset, stating that Patsy would have given you the shirt off her back.

I took the album to Hollywood, and the guy wanted me to leave it with him, so a friend of his could authenticate it. I told him, never, no way, will I let this out of my hands... If anyone has any idea if her signature is valuable, please let me know. I would like to have the album framed, but do not want to leave it with a framer....

Patsy had a beautiful voice, and apparently was very nice about giving her autograph to my mom.

Thank you,

I wish that Patsy's complete radio transcripts were released on CD. I missed out on the 2-volume set of radio transcripts that included Patsy as well as other artists like Faron Young. Indeed, it's been 10 years since the release of "Cimarron Ballroom"! I remember it well. What a great day that was! Looking forward to getting my hands on more treasures like it!
Sunday, April 01, 2007 at 19:41:50 (CEST)
She was incredible. When she did "Little Sparrow" a capella it made the entire crowd go silent. It was one of the best nights of my life - and I'm not a Billy No Mates who has nothing to do, either!!! haha. From what I've seen of Patsy performing live I think the Dolly experiance is the closest I'll ever get. She needs nothing to make her sound amazing - the whole talent is there in her vocals, just like PC. Pure and infectious and just sheer joy to watch and hear.

On another note - is it really 10 years since Live at the "Cimarron Ballroom" was released? The CD says July 97, but it just doesn't seem that long!!

Mrs Flood, if you check in, give a sign. Hope you are well xx

Well, we got along just fine and he gave me a record, I don't remember the name of it, but it had a song on it and then, the news of the plane crash with Patsy Cline and others that were on the plane. I don't know what has happend to that record, but I'd love to find another one. Patsy was and will always be a great singer. If anyone knows where I can find that record, please email me.

Hi all -

Just wanted to tell you all about a new book that I'm reading called "The 100 Greatest Albums That Changed Music". The content of the book is obvious considering its title, and it covers ALL genres of music over the last sixty years. Featured in the book's countdown are extensive chapters on albums by Carole King, Elvis, The Beatles, Fleetwood Mac, The Eagles, Rolling Stones, Tina Turner, etc.

Guess what album is #10 of 100? "Patsy Cline Showcase With The Jordanaires".

"...That did my ole heart good..."

I was only 9 years old when Patsy died. I'm now 52 and enjoy her music more than ever. I plan to visit her grave site during one of my trips to Radford, VA., where my daughter now resides. On that day I will thank the Lord for her life, and the influence her music has had on so many, and generations to come.

Chrissy, I victrola... how cool.

I was at ET Record Shops a few days ago and picked up a George Hamilton IV scrapbook that his son recently put together to commemorate IV's 50th anniversary as a recording artist. It's jammed pack with articles, photos,and other career highlights. I tend to forget he was a rocker, but I was reminded when I see photos of him with Eddie Cochran and on the beach with Chuck Berry.

Photos included are the often published photo of Geo and Patsy with her in western outfit and him a winking. Later that day I discovered a rare one with Charlie and Patsy at Geo.'s NC home. Everyone had big ole smiles and it was a treat to see our #1 singer remembered.

I am not sure if this is available online. I would guess ET records shop could do mail order.

It's a treasure of history and fashion styles that are to die for. Enjoy.

I have heard and do understand. They have a special something that cannot be replicated. And the memories of winding the handle before the record started to slow down on granny's very old machine. Recently I was privileged to hear a recording cut directly from the voice of the singer direct to the record. Unbelievable.

Timeless memories.

I just wanted to say that I was listening to my Victrola records last night and came across a couple tunes that Patsy did! They were not sang by her but other artists before she even recorded them. They were beautiful and sounded so great! Of course, not as great as Patsy's versions of them.

Angelica, I wouldn't stay away from singing such a beautiful song as "Jesus Take the Wheel", or any other for that matter, just for the simple fact that someone else is singing it in a way that you don't really 'get'. Just make it your own, make EVERY song you sing your own. If the song moves you, then sing it from your very soul in your range and it will be beautiful. I do like hearing that song. I do like listening to Carrie Underwood's version of it; not that I know of any other who has sang it lol, but it is a beautiful and touching song. My only complaint is that though I can understand someone having a high range it seems all singers nowadays sound so much alike, but then again, here I am the pot calling the kettle black as I've somehow managed to train my voice in such a way that whatever I sing turns to country and sounds like I'm a 'Patsy wanna be'. Not such a bad thing, I suppose. lol. I'm not her, never will be, but boy is it ever fun to pretend when I'm out there performing! :)

Hi Per and gang... Aah yes, hard to believe it's been that long since Patsy left our world...

Here's my tribute:


Many moons ago
In Virginia
A voice truly gifted
Brought into the world

She worked hard and had a dream
She perservered
Some obstacles were laid out before her
Bulldozed on through with fire

Arthur Godfrey was her door
To success and short lived fame
In all but a whirlwind career
This icon was a legend oh yes
Definitely destined to be
A household name

Even though her life was lost
On a flight homeward bound
Her voice is the spirit
That truly
Embraceable sound

You know it's her when on the radio
Recognizeable yet profound
Stands forever in time
The harmony and melody
Rich and sweet

Musical mergings she pursued
The efforts applauded as such
Here is a woman
Where country music ever meant so much

To all she has touched of present and past
Left us with her legacy
Eternally to last

In heaven she is happy
Always in her fans' hearts she does belong
Here's to Patsy Cline
God Bless her

Well, it's here again. The saddest day in the year and a great loss to the music world. Anybody notice that GAC and CMT didnt even peep? I wish they would start remembering the legends like they used to. I miss you Patsy, thanks for teaching me to sing and showing me that it's cool to be an alto. Ok, about what Chrissy said, I see alot of that in my chorus class. They all try to sound like whoever is cool and they end up all sounding the same! I barely even listen to the radio anymore... it's no fun! Plus, country music died today in 1963. I grab my singing influence from singers from pre 1980 cause after that it all sounds the same. But heck, I don't have many people to look up too anyway... you don't see anymore alto singers like Patsy. I think I'll stay away from singing "Jesus Take The Wheel" and keep on singing "Crazy" so I don't sound like anybody else :)

Well... I don't listen to anyone else's version of any Patsy song, except Patsy's, unless I go to a tribute show such as "Always". For me, Patsy is the best! This is a truly sad day for all of us who love the great Patsy Cline. It is a day of remembrance, of trying to imagine what might have been if Patsy hadn't died so young, of listening to that beautiful, unbeatable voice. Sweet dreams, dear Patsy. We all love and miss you, and wish you were here still.

The music of Patsy Cline lives on. I watched "The Departed" and "Sweet Dreams" is heard in several key scenes. Even though she passed 44 years ago today, she lives on in the music, in her family and in our hearts. If you are like me, when you hear her music and her incredible voice, you are lifted to another place. Rarely does someone mean so much to so many. Heaven is lucky to have her!

This is the time of year that all of us hate to think about, but it's part of the story behind Patsy Cline. Monday the 5th marks the date of her passing, may we all rememeber Patsy in our own special way. As I do each year, I will play my favorite Patsy songs in her honor, I have been doing this since 1985.

God Bless the soul of Patsy Cline. She will live on forever. It is amazing to think that it has been 44 years since she passed away. 44 years ago today when the plane carrying Patsy, her manager Randy Hughes, and Grand Ol' Opry stars Hawkshaw Hawkins and Cowboy Copas crashed near Dyersburg, Tennessee. Sadly, there were no survivors. We send happy wishes to Patsy's family. Thanks to Patsy, millions of people the world over have hours of musical enjoyment in their lives! And thank you Per for this wonderful Patsy site. I believe it is the best Patsy site of any other in the world.

No need to apologize. I understand what you are saying, we all entitled to our own thoughts and opinions and though I may not always agree, I do respect the differences in thought. However, one can't help to sound like her if that's the voice they were given. To be completely honest, I get more agitated at an operatic Patsy tribute artist with crazy vibrato going on or a flashy singer trying to make the songs all their own as if something were wrong with 'em in the first place, as if they could some how be better than what they were to begin with. In my opinion, it is far better for someone trying to give the persona of Patsy to get the songs as close as possible and right to a 'T'with a careful ear and steady voice. My Uncle said when I was singing a Motown song, after laughing, that everything I touch turns to country! Who'd have thought, I'm certainly not from the south though I wish I were. I suppose growing up, I listened to FAR too much Randy Travis and singing along to his music morning noon and night for many years got me trained in a different style of singing that is natural to me, but unnatural for most people of my geographic location. That would explain WHY it is that most young teens today with musical ability ALL sound so much alike, almost comparable to Carrie Underwood or Mariah Carey. What you listen to has the BIGGEST influence on how you sing; inflection, intonation, tone, feeling ... so on and so forth.

My apologies to all tribute artists out there. I certainly did not mean to imply that no singing talent is required to play the role of Patsy Cline -- much talent is needed indeed! Patsy is most certainly a tough act to follow, and I do appreciate all singers who perform her songs. The point I tried to make in an earlier post is that I'm not much interested in artists who make trying to sound like Patsy a big part of their own identity as artists. To be influenced by someone is one thing... to want to be like someone is quite another. Sorry for the misunderstanding.
Sunday, February 25, 2007 at 22:52:22 (CET)
Country Weekly remembers 13 years ago when Patsy was on the cover of the magazine. Look for the edition that has Lorrie Morgan and Sammy Kershaw on the cover.
It's towards the back.

I just saw the musical "Always... Patsy Cline" in Atlanta at the 14th St. Playhouse. The girl who plays Patsy is uncanny. It is eery how much she is like Patsy. Her voice is incredible and the show is amazing! I've heard she has received all kinds of praise and awards for her performance already. Worth the trip to Atlanta to see her. Her name is Cindy Summers!

I just looked on ebay at the travel-coin case that was supposedly Patsy's, it went for $332. If it did belong to Patsy, I wonder how much she paid for it. Patsy was so down to earth and honest, I bet she would think it's hilarious that someone would pay that much for something that belonged to her. The best things are free and that's the love we have for her, you can't put a price on the happiness she brings into our lives.

One Last Comment of the night ... I don't believe that acting alone is what gives other perfomers/tribute artists a persona of Patsy. I believe it takes a lot of talent and hard work. Yes, there are a lot of people out there that love her music, and though they show a lot of feeling and heart while performing, just don't get it and props to them for giving it their all, but those who do 'get it' does not mean they are good actors, it means they are gifted and talented musicians helping to carry on the legacy of Patsy.

Warren, Mi United States - Friday, February 23, 2007 at 06:21:50 (CET)
I'm really glad about all those who posted regarding my friendly debate. :) ... Thanks. I am a Patsy Cline tribute artist but even I know that I am Not Patsy Cline and no one could ever replace her. I've only been doing the tribute artist thing for about a month but it seems to be going quite well. I have always loved Patsy Cline but being a soprano for most of my life; being afraid to sing low because my choir teacher told me not to, for fear of me not hitting the high notes anymore. Now I find that my voice sounds more natural when singing low and I LOVE it. The sadness in that tone when singing is taken more seriously. Not sure if that makes sense but does to me. Kind of like Karen Carpenter (one of my other ALL time favorite singers) Karen and Patsy had a common theme in their voices ... they could MAKE you feel their heartache and sadness! They didn't just sit pretty and sing, they TOLD you all about it, they pretty much sat you down and MADE you FEEL every ounce of pain in their song and you liked it, you still do and still listen with that same compassionate ear hanging on every beautifully heartbreaking musical phrase. That's what I try my best to do. I just need lots of help with getting comfortable with performing in front of people. The look is pretty much there and the voice/feeling behind the song is as there as it could possibly be, I just am far too shy for my own music loving good! Take a look if you get a chance, please, and give me your honest oppinion about my look. You can find me on the net with my agency at Sound Patrol Productions. Yes, it is a DJ service but also is an agency for entertainers. Please let me know what you think. I can take constructive criticism. :)

I am actually listening to Patsy as I write. I found this page on Google. I do agree that it is quite obsurd that people compare other singers to Ms.Cline. There will never be another individual and beautiful voice such as hers. It was an original, it will never be duplicated. This situation is like people calling Anna Nicole Smith, the next Marilyn Monroe. It is stupid and obsurd. May Patsy sing throughout the heavens... I wish that I was alive when she was alive... I am only 18 and I love her just as much as people who have been listening to her for years. I guess that I can relate, because my father loved Patsy Cline, and since his recent passing, I am seeing why he had such respect and love for this brilliant person. I have a question, Patsy's daughter Julie, is she still alive and her son as well, I would love if someone could provide this information, thanks alot!!!

Ok, My thoughts on the LeAnn Rimes debate. Even if she has the yodel and a country voice... Patsy's an alto and LeAnn is a soprano. Totally different voice types! Plus she doesn't have the sadness... She hasn't gone through the same heartaches as Patsy did.

RE: the Duet proposals... Ddon't we have a duet with her and Jim Reeves... "Have I Told You Lately That I Love You". Now there are two smooth voices together and I, for one, like it. (Artificially done of course. I would like to hear her with Elvis.) I wish she had actually made some duet recordings, but she didn't. She has the smoothest voice in the businessss, bar none. I like to imagine how she would have sounded singing with other wonderful voices. It adds a dimension to her voice that enhances it even more, and I am sure, if she were here, she would be singing with the greats. I also think that the "imitators" are actually doing the job of carrying on her songs that would not be brought to light so much and keep it going. Not everyone in the world remembers Patsy as it is because they were not born yet. I love to hear a good voice singing her songs. (I hate to hear a bad singer tearing them up) but all they are doing is showing how much they love Patsy and her voice and her style. Because that lady had/has STYLE. No one can match it, but it does help to introduce the young people and other countries to know her as best they can, and feel like they have seen her when they see a show. Isn't that why WE go .. and so we can "check them out" to see how well they do. I know when I hear someone new on the radio, I can't wait to see what they look like. And these days to see the video. It helps to feel that you know who it is that sang that song. Most people are singing someones songs, not their own original songs, in bands, karaoke, whatever... and isn't it wonderful that they all want to do Patsy, men and women .. and try to do it like Patsy did it. What a compliment. Some come very close, but no ringers. Me, I used to do all Patsy songs. I started because they were all in my range, and continued because I fell in love with them, and her, and wanted to try to put as much of my own feelings into them as I could. They should never be done any other way. Just reciting the song, is ok, but we expect to hear the heart in them. And that is what TRIBUTE SINGERS try to do, not as a try out to be the next Patsy, but to honor her, lest we insult her, by NOT doing it "right"... MY OPINION... I still sing Patsy songs over and over and over and they don'y like it they can kiss it (the audience lol) 'Cause I am going to do it for a couple of years I hope (I am on oxygen and have a bad lung disease, but I still go out and sing) I hope I go out singing "Bill Bailey", Patsy Style!! That is what always I tell the band, when I am doing one someone else did... I am doing this one Patsy Style... not Bill Monroe, or who ever else did it... and they know to get ready and change from that old bluegrass way they were going to do all these songs. Patsy changed the world and the music industry all together, "when she did a song, it was done" . lol

In regards to Chrissy's "friendly debate" concerning LeAnn Rimes...

There will always be artists who will be influenced by Patsy Cline's sound - especially if they're any good. Many artists over the years have been compared to her: Reba, Trisha, Martina, etc. It seems like every time someone new appears on the scene, Patsy's name comes up. The reason is obvious and was best stated by the late Tammy Wynette when she said "Patsy Cline is, and perhaps will always be, the standard bearer for all female Country Singers."

When I first heard LeAnn Rimes, I did not associate her with Patsy, but people did, because of the Nashville Sound quality of her record "Blue", which was originally written with Patsy in mind. As a very opinionated individual and perfectionist, I don't think ANYBODY comes close but Mandy Barnett. I saw "Always... Patsy Cline" 12 times before I saw her star in it and from the 3rd row at Ryman Auditorium, she BLEW me away. She had the phrasing, the catch/tear in her voice, growl, tone, pitch and warmth of Patsy's voice down to the last inch.

If you want to hear what Patsy Cline would've recorded later in her career had she lived, buy Mandy's first two albums. They're incredible.

Honestly, I'm getting tired of this debate of who can sound like Patsy. Patsy, like Mozart, like Shakespeare, was a genius, and though there are people who have and will continue to try and sing like her, no one will ever sound like her, because Patsy was Patsy. The fact that Mandy Barnett can make herself sound a bit like Patsy, perhaps more so than any other Patsy impersonator up to this point, is proof primarily of her acting skills, not so much of her talent as a singer. The true test of her (or anyone else's) talent as a singer, is how UNIQUE they are... What makes them stand out from the rest in the music business. I support Patsy impersonators only because they help "spread the word" about Patsy to those who have never heard of her... Not because I'm looking for the "next" Patsy Cline (I'm not).

Hey everyone in Northeast Pa. Just caught "Always Patsy Cline" at the Music Box Dinner Theater in Swoyersville, Pa. And it was fantastic. Even the most critical Patsy fan will have to be impressed with this show. Nicole Rasmus is unbelievable as Patsy and Debbie Zehner is charming as Louise. If your within reach don't miss it. It's worth the drive from anywhere to see this great performance. For directions to the theater and resevations call: The Music Box Dinner Playhouse at 1-800-698-PLAY

FRIENDLY DEBATE: Do you think that LeAnn Rimes was/is the next Patsy Cline? Do you think her voice is reminiscent of Patsy's?

My thought is this, though some may come pretty close to what was so precious about her and to what made Patsy Cline who she was; her talent, her appearance, statge presence and so on, No One could ever replace her.

LeeAnn Rimes has a God given talent all her own, but she is far from "Patsy". Sure, can hear the country in LeAnn's voice, but that's about it. Her range isn't Patsy's range - she sings too high and squeaky, kind of like a country/pop singer. That's just my thought, what is yours?

I am doing a project on Patsy for my U.S history class and I chose to be Patsy because she is such a wonderful person and is notable in so many ways. I never really knew much about Patsy until I read a biography on her for my project and I noticed that we have a lot in common. For my project I have to dress up as Patsy and sing one of her songs. Some of the things that we have in common is we both love tosing and we will tell people off if we don't like what they are doing or what they are saying.

Hello, I was just wondering if anyone knows if Patsy ever died her hair? ... I know after the car accident she wore a wig to help her disguise the scar on her forehead. (Honestly, she was still one of the most beautiful women even still). I thought I remember seeing her in a documentary where her hair was lighter, almost a softer redish brown. Was I just seeing things or does anyone know anything about this? Thanks so much for any and all replies! Sincerely, Chrissy

According to the liner notes of the "Sweet Dreams" soundtrack LP and CD, Bob Moore and Buddy Harman (who were also on the original recording session in 1960) sweetened "Lovesick Blues" on October 15, 1984 with additional electric bass (Moore) and toms (Harman).

In this same vein, Buddy Harman and Harold Bradley added additional instruments to the track when Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton and Tammy Wynette recorded their vocals, to create a quartet with Patsy, when the song was included in the 1993 "Honky Tonk Angels" CD.

I remember when I used to have the "Sweet Dreams" soundtrack album back in the 80's, the liner notes for each song selection gave information about the artist both orignal and added tracks from 1984. I think the differences between the orignal and the 1984 version are slight. The drums may have been ramped up a bit for more bass, and there was some other minor changes I can't remember. Where's Jimmy W when you need em, LOL.

It is going to be held at Dimitri's just south of 23 mile rd. Let me know if anyone would like the number to make reservations. There will be a "Frank Sinatra" and myself as Ms. Patsy Cline. :) I'm the "cameo" performance as I'm the newbie to the group, but honestly, when I sing, there's nothing "newbie" to it, been singing since I was a baby. Thanks and hope to see some of you's real soon!

For all you Patsy fans in Northeast Pa. "Always Patsy Cline" will be performed at the Music Box Dinner Playhouse, the last two weeks in Feb, and the first weekend in March the show runs Thurs, Fri, Sat evenings and Sunday matinees. Nicole Ross Rasmus is Patsy and Debbie Zehner plays Louise. Nicole has taken on this part several times before and will vocally dazzle even the most critical fan with her haunting voice. If you would like to make reservations you can call the Music Box toll free for reservations 1 800 698-play. But call early, this is one of the theater's fast sell out shows.

Myself and a number of other people have been looking for a picture. I'm not entirely certain that you would have it, but perhaps you could point me in the right direction. We have heard that when Patsy died there was a pretty famous AP photograph taken of June Carter crying, and wondered if someone has a copy of it.

Thanks for the info on her weight and height. I guess I'm close enough to her size to resemble her body type (120 lbs. 5'1 1/2). As for the commercial, I saw it and occasionally I see it more than once throught the day and it makes me want to throw a hammer through a plate glass window!!! UG. What a disaster that is! Ok, so if you have a problem with weight, do you REALLY NEED someone to pretty much imply you are "Lazy", forget the fact that it probably has more to do with genetics than laziness????? How rude! And what a way to TRASH such a lovely song!!!!!!! Sincerely, Chrissy

I really enjoy watching the Patsy Cline movie and how she met Loretta Lynn and the songs they sang together. She was a very good singer and she will never be forgotten, her voice is beautiful.

I've been a great fan for years... She has many in Canada... It was great seeing all those pictures of her and her family and her house pictures... I just couldn't image what it must have been like for Charlie and their kids after her death... Just thinking about it after all these years just saddens me... I'm so glad everyone still loves her... It would be nice to know and see pictures of how her family is doing now... Well, thanks for reading...

Hello Patsy Fans,
I was very annoyed to see that Bally's is using the melody of "Crazy" as a back ground to one of their TV ads. They have changed the lyrics to the song and one of the words they use is "Lazy" to rhyme with "Crazy". Of all the songs to pick and ruin! Here is one of the most heartfelt songs that America has ever produced and it is being used to sell memberships in gyms.
I informed Bally's that they should use some cheap hip-hop trash music to match the cheapness of their ad. Patsy Cline and Willie Nelson deserve better. Maybe if others e-mail them as well they will drop this cheesy ad and discourage others from doing similar things.

Hi everyone. I was wondering if anyone is on myspace? I would really like to talk with some Patsy fans, I have a cool slideshow of some pics of Patsy on there. My URL is

I am a big fan of Patsy Cline's, have been for quite some time and am getting ready to start as a Patsy Cline tribute artist. I was just wondering if someone could please tell me if they know what her weight and height were? OBVIOUSLY, no one could or ever will compare to her vocal abilities or her beauty, and no one could ever replace her, I just wanted to see how my frame matches up to hers. Pictures can be deceiving. Thanks.

Back to the mention of a Patsy Cline duet. First read the fine lines -- it did not say Vince Gill would be doing a duet. It stated that a submission was being prepared. A submission is under no circumstances an obligation on anyone's part. In the music business writers like Hank Cockran & Harlan Howard, who wrote "I Fall to Pieces", did the same this with their materials. Mr. Owen Bradley liked it and accepted it. Normally a writer doesn't mention to the public any of their ideas simply because they are not writing for one or two individuals who don't understand the concepts of the music business. They deal directly with the publishing & record companies.

However, we appreciate your opinions but don't get your feathers ruffled Mr. Sands might go back & submit to Mr. Ray Price. Even though he is not getting the air play that some of the newcomers might receive he could do a great job!

Rewrites are not an intent to hurt an artist, but a way of showing tribute to their greatness. Would Patsy had sung with Ray Price if the opportunity had ocurred? I think that she would have. After all, she recorded a song from one of his band members, and Ray Price was an artist she admired!

Again we thank you for your opinions, but remember, a submission is a writer's avenue to results.

Now I've heard everything. CPC has been trying to do a meuseum in Patsy's honor for years and still nothing. Now, to add insult to injury, they think that Patsy's original version is not good enough for them. The WHOLE purpose of the "meuseum" is to celebrate her life and her work. By featuring a Vince Gill duet as their "themesong", they are literally slapping her in the face. I say forget the whole idea and honor her correctly by playing her music and HER versions.

As both a Patsy Cline fanatic and purist, I dread the idea of more contemporary artists recording duets with her voice. I'd much prefer more of Patsy's songs with updated arrangements. The album "Patsy Cline - Duets", which features Patsy with several contemporary artists like Willie Nelson, Crystal Gale and Bob Carlisle, contains a few good duets on it, but what excites me the most about it are the versions of "Hungry for Love" and "How Can I Face Tomorrow", in which Patsy sings all by her lonesome (thank goodness), and which are done with contemporary instrumentation. In addition, Patsy's voice is enhanced beautifully throughout this album, making her sound as though she were still alive and recording! And don't we all wish she was? *sigh* The best duet by far with Patsy's voice is one with her and Jim Reeves on "Have You Ever Been Lonely", on an album called "Greatest Hits - Jim Reeves and Patsy Cline". I'm telling you, that duet just gives me chills! I think those two just click; it's pure magic! Anyway, no, I wouldn't like to see another duet done with Patsy, especially not as a theme for the Patsy Cline museum, in which PATSY CLINE should be the centre of attention. Now, if a second volume of "Patsy Cline - Duets" will be released. And if that would happen, I'd buy it if only just to hear Patsy's voice enhanced, without distortion, and in its full brilliance! Take it from me: she sounds better on the "Duets" album than on some of her original recordings. Those are my thoughts on this topic.
P.S. Thanks Patsy, for everything! Kudos to you forever!

I agree with Bill.

Some over-dubbing can spruce up a tired recording, but creating a false duet can require a lot more manipulation than just over dubbing. The original quality of the voice can be changed.

And Patsy's voice is complex to survive major manipulation and still retain its unique quality.

And I have yet to find a recording of Patsy's voice that sounds the least bit tired. Even after 44 years they still sound alive and new.

I'll admit that I'm more open to the idea of overdubs and the more "creative" uses of Patsy's music than most Patsifans are.

But, for the idea of a Point/Counterpoint type duet of "I Fall To Pieces" between Patsy and Vince Gill, I must say "Absolutely not". As much as I can hear a duet between Patsy and Vince on several songs, most notably "Does Your Heart Beat For Me," the idea of this particular duet idea leaves me cold.

I can't picture it as being anything more than two similar songs being performed at the same time. No matter the intention behind the idea, I can't see anything good coming of it.

The Patsy Cline Foundation is something I have not heard about. Please tell me more. Is it the same one that used to give scholarships to music students, or is it something altogether fresh?

Speaking of Patsy Cline, a new project is in the making this year of 2007. Patsy's 1st hit song "I Fall to Pieces" is presently being put together for a duet purpose. The rewrite will give the male & female version to the meaning of the lyrics of the song. A submission will be made to MCA records asking Mr. Vince Gill to duet the song along with Patsy's original version. Ms. Kemp of the Patsy Cline Foundation has already stated to the writer of the male version of the song, that if the song is accepted, the museum would like it as their theme song! This could bring a new wave of attention to music lovers & fans of Patsy Cline around the world. Let us hear from you!!

I just thought that fans of the wonderful Patsy Cline might like to visit You Tube. There are some wonderful film/TV clips of Patsy singing her hits and also in duets with various others. It is well worth while visiting and entering "Patsy Cline" then sit back and enjoy.
Happy New Year everyone from South Wales, UK.

Jared, even more ironic, is the last song Reba did with her band before the crash:

"Sweet Dreams"

Because of that, it's said, Reba no longer performs the song in her concerts.

Bill Cox <>
Knoxville, TN USA - Monday, January 01, 2007 at 05:17:01 (CET)
So here's something I found to be ironic...

Reba McEntire lost her band in a fatal airplane accident in San Diego on March 16, 1991. Her first album after the tragedy, "For My Broken Heart", featured a great song called "If I Had Only Known", which she dedicated to the band. A year later, that specific song topped the charts at its peak: On March 5, 1992, 28 years to the day that Patsy Cline's plane crashed. Talk about ironic!

Hope everybody is well!

Merry Christmas everyone.

In the final quiet hour before the family wake up and the floors become covered in discarded wrapping paper. The turkey is the only poor loser, but he is going to give pleasure to a few people if he gets cooked properly. So everyone have a great time what ever you are doing. Spare a thought for those whose Christmas will not be as comfortable or bountiful as your Christmas. Spare a thought for those working this day to keep us warm and safe today.

Happy Christmas to all.

I have been a huge fan of Patsy Cline my entire life. Everytime I hear her sing, I am transported into a different world. She is awesome.

A few years ago I visited the plane crash site in Camden. If I remember correctly, after you pass the mailbox, you have to walk down a little hill. I remember when I got to the bottom there was a rock memorial. I also noticed a large "dent" in the ground. Could this be where the nose of the plane hit, or just the landscape?

This is a WONDERFUL site! :O)

Merry Chhristmas to all my fellow Patsy lovers. Hope you all have a great holiday. This year was great for me. I actually got to go to Winchester, so Christmas came early for me. Did anyone see the "Giants" on CMT honoring Reba? Dolly was great on it. I wish they'd honor Loretta Lynn that way. It would also be great to see the biggest names in music honor Patsy. I did not care for the tribute CD a few years ago. It could've been a lot better. Any ideas out there guys? Again, Merry Christmas.

Regarding Patsy's cigarette lighter... you can find pictures of it featured in the Country Music Hall of Fame on this website under the heading "Places" and then under Nashville, Country Music Hall of Fame.

Incidentally, from time to time I have seen replicas of the cigarette lighter (or ones made by the company during the same time) on Ebay. I had the manufactuers name written down somewhere... if I find it I will get it to you.

There is lot of debate on

Though it is a very one sided debate as Celebrating Patsy Cline Inc, (those who took it upon themselves to create the museum) seem unable to communicate what is happening. There was a shop open in the museum building for a few hours last Friday and Saturday. Even that event did not appear on the museum's website. A media release did appear in the Winchester Star newspaper on Friday.

I have been a great fan of Patsy since I was a child, and learnt her songs at a very early age. I now live in Lanzarote where I sing in local bars, and the songs I am asked for mostly are by this great lady. I have been very lucky in my career even though it started late in life, best tunes played on old fiddles. I love country music and most of the ladies of country, but I have to say that the biggest inspiration in my singing career has been from Patsy and I will go on singing her wonderful songs for as long as God allows me to. It may interest you to know that this year I died and had to be brought back to life, as my late son decided it wasn't my time to join him, and perhaps it's because I still have alot of Patsy's songs to sing. My best wishes go out to all her fans all over the world, and may I wish you all a very Happy Christmas in advance. Regards to all, Valerie in Lanzarote, Canary Islands.
