Here you see a framed picture of Patsy singing on stage,
a few CDs, and a 45 rpm single containing "Walkin' after
midnight". The text reads: "Patsy Cline singing about
'Sweet dreams' and 'Walkin' after midnight'. Patsy Cline
quickly endeared herself to Opry fans. She became a member
in 1960 and was one of the most popular entertainers among
the cast as well as with the audience. While her untimely
death stilled her career, her voice will never be silenced".
This picture shows Patsy's cigarette lighter. The text reads:
"Patsy Cline's untimely death cut short a promising career as
a country and pop vocalist. This cigarette lighter plays the
familiar song 'Dixie'". Above the lighter (outside the picture)
is Randy Hughes' clock. It stopped at the time of impact, and
shows 6:20 pm... Patsy's watch, which can be seen at the
Willie Nelson Museum, shows 6:35 pm...

The text reads: "Born Virginia Patterson Hensley in
Virginia, Patsy will live in country music annals as
one of its outstanding vocalists. Tragically, her
career was cut short in its prime when she was killed
in a plane crash. Her heritage of recordings is testimony
to her artistic capacity... Biggest hit, "I fall to pieces",
has become a standard. Catapulted to fame by an Arthur
Godfrey talent scouts appearance in 1957. Joined Grand
Ole Opry 1960... Realization of a lifelong ambition."
