Patsy Cline is considered by most to be the Queen of Country Music. Achieving superstar status in the late 1950’s/early 1960’s, Cline’s career skyrocketed when she joined the regular cast at The Grand Ole Opry in Nashville in 1960. She had already had minor success with a few recordings, but the television appearances boosted the public’s awareness of her. She release three albums before she was killed in a private plane crash in 1963. Fortunately, she had recorded many songs that had not yet been released by the record company, so many of her most popular songs were not released until after her death.
In 1973 Cline was the first female solo artist to be elected into the Country Music Hall of Fame. In 1995 she was posthumously given a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. In 1997 her recording of “Crazy” was named the number one jukebox recording of all time –and her recording of “I Fall To Pieces” was listed at No. 17. She received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1999. In 2002, Country Music Television named her number one on its list of “40 Greatest Women of Country Music” – an honor voted on by members of the music industry.
Ms. McLynn, an accomplished entertainer in her own right, brings the excitement of a Patsy Cline concert to life with astounding ease, electrifying her audiences in every performance.
