Winchester VA, United States (1955 – 1963)

Virginia Patterson Hensley (born September 8, 1932 in Winchester, Virginia; died March 5, 1963 in Camden, Tennessee), better known as Patsy Cline, was a Grammy award winning American country music singer who, despite her short life, is known as one of the most influential and acclaimed female singers in the history of popular music. Cline was best known for her rich tone and emotionally expressive bold contralto voice, which along with her role as a mover and shaker in the country music industry, has been cited as an inspiration by many vocalists of various music genres. Her hits included Walkin’ After Midnight, I Fall to Pieces, She’s Got You, Crazy and Sweet Dreams. Posthumously, millions of her albums have sold over the past 50 years. She has been given numerous awards, which have given her an iconic status with some fans similar to that of legends Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley. Ten years after her death, she became the first female solo artist inducted to the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Cline was the last name of her first husband, Gerald Cline, a construction industry mogul, whom she married in 1953 and divorced in 1957. That same year, Cline married Charles Allen Dick, who worked as a linotype operator for the Winchester Star. They had a daughter, Julia Dick (b. 1958), and a son, Allen Randolph Dick (b. 1961).

Cline rocketed to fame after she performed her breakthrough hit “Walkin’ After Midnight” (1955) on the Arthur Godfrey’s Talent Scouts, written by Don Hecht and Alan Block.

    Ha. I love how there are two versions of "Crazy" in the top tracks simply because some halfwits left a space at the end.

    Love her, but slow down. The queen of country is Loretta Lynn.

    The first thing I want to talk about is that heavy metal bands certainly know how to play their instruments, perhaps better than other forms of music. My next point is about the rich, authentic, and analog sound of Patsy Cline. Currently, we call her music "desert rock" because it's what you hear in a sasparillo cafe in Arizona. America (U.S.A.) believes that Scandinavia and the U.K. could make a big scene happen with her style of music.
