I just wanted to say that the new "Patsy Cline Gold" 2 CD set is a great deal. It contains all of the songs that were on last year's "The Definitive Collection" plus 10 more, yet at the store where I bought "Gold" it was $2 cheaper! The cover features a previously unpublished photo of Patsy, but most important to me is the fact that "Imagine That" is in true stereo, although in my opinion the left and right sides are reversed (I wish someone that knows the program Soundforge could explain how I can fix this). I don't know if "Imagine That" has appeared in stereo before, but it was only in mono on the 4 CD box set and "Millennium Collection". That only leaves the 2nd, 1962 version of "You're Stronger Than Me", as the only Decca recording that I don't have in stereo. Where is it?

Anyway, back to "Patsy Cline Gold". I'm assuming that the masters are up to par with those contained on "The Definitive Collection", because "Gold" is the more recent release even though it is song for song the same as 2000's "The Ultimate Collection". Maybe someone can clarify this. Anyway, it sure sounds good to me. As with any collection of 32 songs, any fan would want to tinker a little with the song selection, but all the major hits are there. I, for instance, would have liked to see the 2nd version of "You're Stronger Than Me" in true stereo just because I don't have it already, and although the early version of "Poor Man's Roses" may have historically seen some chart action, in my opinion the 2nd version is far superior, and it is one of my favourites.

With the cheaper price, I don't know why anybody would choose "The Definitive Collection" over the new "Patsy Cline Gold" unless they didn't want the major hits spread across 2 CDs. Anyway, it's good to have a choice. 'Bye for now.

Hi everyone, I havent written in a while, I've been really busy working. I thought I'd share something with you all. I'm a nursing assistant and I work in a nursing home in front royal virginia, about 25 minutes from where I live in Winchester. Almost all of the elderly people that I work with have lived in Winchester and surrounding areas their whole lives. Whenenver I mention to them that I love Patsy Cline, they all tell me stories about her, because they remember her when she lived here. One lady I know even went to Handley High School with her before she dropped out to help her mom. But this one man told me that he used to go to Gaunts Drug Store and pick her up and take her dancing. And they all tell me how the town was packed when it was Patsy's funeral.

There are many of the elderly people who have memory problems like Alzheimers, who can't remember something that you said to them five minutes earlier, but mention Patsy Cline, and their faces light up and they say, "oh yes I loved her, she could really sing." Well, I just wanted to share that and if there is anything that needs to be done with the fan club in Winchester, just let me know, I'm always willing to do anything for my girl Patsy. Bye everyone

Wow, what a great Patsy Cline site! My 20 year love affair with Patsy has recently been rekindled by the recent PBS special and my newest CD purchase, "Patsy Gold". What a great special that I can't wait to get on DVD, and what a great CD compilation. I have so many questions and things I want to say about Patsy, but for now, is there anyplace on the web that attempts to list a chronology of Patsy's personal appearances? The reason I ask is I live on the Canadian west coast and I wonder if Patsy ever made it out that way. In "The Real Patsy Cline" video, George Hamilton IV mentions a western Canada tour with Patsy. By the way, Loretta Lynn made many appearances at a border town honky-tonk called Bob's Tavern in Blaine, Washington many years ago. 'Bye for now.

"It's wonderful that whenever her name is mentioned, people's voices fall and they become right sentimental. And, rightly so."
~ Dr. Maya Angelou On Patsy Cline\

I was just reading that on Bill Cox's footnotes and it brought tears to my eyes. Do you ever notice how true that is? You say "Patsy Cline" and immediately you hear either two things from the person you're talking about her with: 1.) An awestruck silence/reverence as if she just walked in the room. 2.) Something along the lines of "Oh man, I love Patsy Cline. She's one of my favorites." Isn't it something that the most beloved legends of our time either didn't realize how incredible they were at what they did or didn't realize how many people loved them. With some, they're loved only for their talents/contributions. But with Patsy I think it goes beyond that into a personal space where people sincerely love her. We think of her like a best friend. And I hope she knows that now.

I usually don't get so deep (Imagine that ~ ain't THAT a laugh!), but Dr. Angelou's quote really struck a chord with me, so forgive me, everybody!

"And all of Patsy's hosses said: AMEN!"

In regards to the Jubilee USA that Francis has, they are not available for sale. From what I am hearing, "Let it Snow, Let it Snow" is to be on the upcoming DVD, "Sweet Dreams Still". PBS is telling people that it is one of the clips to be included, as well as "I Saw the Light".

I believe the 2 solo spots she did were "WAM" and "Lovesick Blues". Gosh, it has been maybe 15 years since I saw those!

I have a copy of a TV show Patsy was on called "Jubilee USA" with Red Foley and Ferlin Huskey as Siman Crum, and Patsy sings a Christmas duet called "Winter Wonderland" with Red Foley. I think it was originally aired in 1959. Can anyone help me and let me know if this show is available on DVD or has been released to the public? Is this a rare show? Any Patsy fans/collectors who can answer my question would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Francis

Comment: To me it sounds as if you are sitting on a very rare piece of music history! It sounds very much like one of the Kinescope films that are in store at The Country Music Hall of Fame... There should also be one showing Patsy singing duet with Ferlin Huskey in "Let it snow, let it snow". Do you have that one, as well? As far as I know, none of these films have been released to the public. Something in the back of my head tells me that Jimmy Walker watched these films somewhere, a few years ago... Jimmy, can you shed some light on this? /Per
I have really enjoyed visiting this site. My mother was a second cousin of Patsy's (on the Hensley side of her family). I was raised on country and bluegrass music and love all of Patsy's songs. I won a talent contest at age 18 singing "Crazy", my favorite Patsy Cline song. I'm no Patsy Cline but I will always love her music. I can't wait to purchase "Sweet Dreams Still" when it is released in Sept.

Hi! Everyone here is probably a huge fan of Patsy and know basically everything about her, but if there happened to be a question you were pondering for a while, just e-mail me and I'll try to help. I'm only 13, of course, but I know every member of the Patsy Cline fan club in Patsy's home town, there are lots of club members from Winchetser, and all around Virginia. There are also members in the Winchester fan club that live in CANADA! My next door neighbor is an older woman, but she has a very strong memory and she lived beside Patsy and her family for years, when Patsy was a teen. The reason I know all the fan club members, though, is because my grandmother was the first to sign up for the Winchester fan club, when it started a while back, and she is still in it at the age of 53.

My neighbor, however, is not a member of the fan club, but she was and still is a very nosy person, so she knows a lot. I also know Charlie *Patsy's husband when she died* fairly well and I also know one of the main people and leaders of the club. I go to his house every labor day with the rest of the members, even though I'm not a part of the club, myself. He has some amazing things that belonged to Patsy, and he even has the wedding dress that was worn in the movie "Sweet Dreams", by the actress who played and portrayed Patsy. I also happen to live a couple blocks away from one of the homes Patsy used to live in.

If you'd like information, feel free to e-mail me at reesecup121591@aol.com and I'll do my best to help you!

Hello Patsy Faithful,
Laurel has finally committed to her singing career. As many have done in the past, starting out singing Patsy favorites. We all Love Patsy's music and many have tried to duplicate Patsy's legendary voice, which in my research none have! Laurel has been told on several occasions after live performances, that she is as close to the original as it can ever get. I would like to invite, especially those of you who have had the extreme pleasure of hearing Patsy live, to visit her new web site at www.laurelcc.net to listen to clips of her renditions of Patsy's favorites and give your opinions in her guestbook.
Forever Patsy,

Thank you, Mario, for those great pictures of Patsy's star! Also, thank you for taking care of Patsy's star. Enjoyed so much the pics of Charlie and Julie, and her nice looking family. Patsy would be so proud, I'm sure. I often think of what a great grandma Patsy would have been, since she was such a loving person.

I received some great photos from Mario Munoz a substantial while back, and now I have finally gotten around to posting them at the site (better late than never, I suppose). The photos show when Patsy got her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in August 1999. I have divided them into three pages with three pictures each. In addition, there are some other photos showing Mario cleaning the star, a street sign at Universal Studios, and a car that was used in the movie "Sweet Dreams". If you go to the Places section and scroll down a bit, you have the links under the title "Hollywood, California". The thumbnails have not been done yet, I'll fix those tomorrow.

For those who don't know, Mario Munoz worked very hard to get Patsy her star, and quite simply, it wouldn't have happened without him! We have Mario to thank for Patsy's star! And he is also the official caretaker of the star, and he cleans it once a month between March and September. The polish doesn't work very well during the cooler months.

Hi Per, long time no writee on the forum!!! Felt I had to add to the list of compliments about the new style. I still love to visit the site and see what everyone is up to, but this time it was even better than usual as a lot of the folk I heard from often a few years ago have also felt the need to congratulate you. It was a step back in time... Always a pleasure to see posts from Mr. Walker et al. After all these years it's still a kick to turn up the volume on Patsy's greatest hits (EVERY LITTLE WHISPER THAT SHE RECORDED) late at night in a dark house and let those shivers run up and down my spine until I can feel energy running out of every pore and nerve ending. I read the 'stories' page and I'm stunned at the number of entries - great to see how many people have found the marvel that is (not was) Patsy Cline. Long live the Queen of Country. Take care and keep the Sweet Dream alive, Cath xxx

Hello all,
I'm glad everyone likes the pictures that Per put on the web site and want to say thanks again, Per. I thought the fans would enjoy seeing some personal items from Mom Hensley. She was so nice to us on our visit with her and I'll always have those special memories of her. She was a truly talented and creative woman. You can also go to CD Universe's web site @ cduniverse.com and preorder your copy of "Patsy Cline - Sweet Dreams Still" for $13.99 plus shipping. Patsy Forever.

Howdy ya all! Justed wanted to check in, and say hello! Also I preordered my copy of the Patsy DVD from Amazon. They have a good price on this, at around 15.00 dollars. With shipping it comes to around 18.00 dollars. As confirmed by Jimmy Walker, this DVD will offer 13 performances, uncut, with no talking over. Also 2 of them will be new unreleased versions, with one of them being a duet with slim wilson. We all need to thank those involved on this project, including Charlie Dick! It's been a long time coming, and we as fans deserve this collection. Take care everyone!

WOW... Those costumes from "Sweet Dreams" are really cool. I am confused though. That outfit that is said to be the one that JL wore in the opening scenes, or at least part of it, used to be in the country music in the movies section at the old Country Music Hall of Fame. I wonder how it got where it is. Also, that makes me wonder what happened to Sissy Spacek's script from "Coal Miner's Daughter". It seems I have seen it in the new Hall of Fame. But I could have been mistaken. It was also part of the movie section as well as the red and white polka-dot dress that actually was Loretta's. Hmmm... Sure would be nice if CPC could get at least one of these items.

Hi Per and all! Here's a neat link: www.HeavenAndEarthAndYou.com, an online store that specializes in Celebrity Clothing. And WHAT is that under the Jessica Lange page? It's the dress worn by Jessica as Patsy in the opening scenes of the film "Sweet Dreams"! Some of the items from the ensemble have been sold, others haven't.

A few years ago, I bought the coat that Lange (as Cline) wears home to find Charlie having a party at the new house in the film. I bought it from a certified dealer in Orlando - also for sale was the rhinestone/chiffon dress that Lange wears in the final scene singing "Sweet Dreams", but I couldn't afford its $750 price tag then! Of course, now the dress has found its way to the Loretta Lynn Museum in Nashville. Unfortunately, I no longer have the coat, as I sold it when I needed money. It was certified by Karel Reisz, the film's producer. I wish I still had it for Patsy's museum!

God Bless you all! Take care!

My name is Margo Bernard. I am a lover of Patsy Cline and I am a singer of her songs. In 1963, when Patsy was killed in an aircrash, my singing partner was killed in a carcrash. 43 years later (I am now 60 yrs old) I have started singing again... Patsy Cline songs. I recently performed at Brisbane City Club and sang Patsy's "I Fall To Pieces", "Sweet Dreams" & "Crazy". I received a standing ovation! My audience was crying! I was crying on stage... it was "Margo Sings Patsy Cline Show". I have now written my first song and have recorded it at a recording studio. It is called the "Miracle of Love"... I am sending it to Sony Music. I have all the Cline Classics and now my show coordinator is organizing our next show "MARGO SINGS PATSY CLINE SHOW". Just like Patsy I am a country girl, a farmer's daughter, and just like Patsy I used to sing for my family when I was only 4 years. We were a country music family with my mother playing for the local country music dances. Taught singing and music like her, I never knew one note from the other, I sing by ear only.

I am a brown eyed brunette 5'5" and I can be seen by visiting my website www.margosanimalsanctuary.com. There will never be another Patsy Cline, she was our Country Music Queen.

As a former Model I guess I got a lot of compliments but the greatest compliment of all was when my audience stood to their feet with tears streaming down their faces and said "Margo, you sound just like Patsy!". Alone in my home with her records and photos as I practice her songs, I look up and say "Patsy I hope you approve. I want to help keep your memory alive by paying you the greatest compliment of all... singing your songs... just the way you sang them. Forever I will cherish my "Sweet Dreams of You".

(this is what my dad told me when I was just a little girl) since I havent spoken to my father in over 10 years, I just wondered if my grandfather really did play backup guitar for Miss Patsy, I researched and researched, and can't find his name anywhere, but am not wiling to give up... So I decided to ask a pro... I hope that you can help me!

"Sweet Dreams Still" is the DVD we've been waiting for: COMPLETE unedited clips of Miss Patsy. Songs performed include "A Church, A Courtroom and Then Goodbye", "Walking After Midnight", "I Fall To Pieces" and "San Antonio Rose". The IFTP and SAR clips are from Patsy's final TV appearanced, filmed in Nashville the week before the plane crash.

Yes, Sean, Patsy did go to Deland, Fl for a screen test. I don't recall the exact details but there is some info in one of the bio's. I do recall she never got paid but they had fun and got some sun. I have seen a picture of Patsy and Dottie down there. Charlie has shown me a photo of him and Patsy poising at the pool in their swim attaire. Imagine Patsy with her red lipstick and big sunglasses -- Nashville at it's finest!

Have a great summer....

Hi Patsy Cline Fan Friends,
My tribute to Patsy Cline every month. I'm still impersonator for her. I love doing it. We have lots of fun. One Friday night, I did all Patsy Cline songs. The next Friday, people were coming over & saying, "will you do 'Crazy' for me?" Patsy Cline is still alive. People love her & her music. In the movie "SWeet Dreams" I like when the song was sang, "Blue Moon Of Kentucky". I love that alot & "She's Got You". I like them all but wish I had her deep voice. She is so pretty, too. When I go shopping, I try to buy the clothes that I know I will be singing for Patsy Cline. I love dressing like her. I get a lot of good comments. People tell me I look like her. It's getting close to my vacation, I always go to Winchester. We have fun there. We go to Grant's Drug Store, Rainbow Inn, Grave, Patsy Home on Kent St. & other places. I just feel so close to her there & especially at her house on Kent St. I just have to stand on her porch. My friend takes pictures of me there. I wish I could go in & have knotted at door but no one answers. Hope they never call "law". What people won't do, when they love someone! Talk to you'll next month. And just kidding, I'm not "Crazyyyy".Your fan friend, Jacqueline /Inpersonator

Hi to Per and everyone. I am here anxiously awaiting the Patsy Cline documentary to air on PBS. I finally have a computer, and enjoy this site and Lisa's more and more. Last summer I finally picked up a stereo copy of "The Patsy Cline Story" on Decca, and I find that cover photo to be so captivating, like she's really looking at me. I do have one question tho, not really Patsy related, but do they still have the Dottie West Memorial in McMinville? Anyways, have a great day, and hi to Julie, Randy and Charlie. Wade

I've been a fan of Patsy's music for years. My parents got me interested in country music as a child, and I think what piqued my intrest in Patsy was when my mother informed me that I was born the day after she died. Now, I've always felt that, when a person dies, another is born to take their place. Forgive me for sounding a bit egotistical, but sometimes I feel like I was born on March 6, 1963 to take Patsy's place in this world. That doesn't mean that I believe that I'm as great a singer as Patsy was, but I do love to sing country music, I have done some recording and singing professionally, and truly love to hear Patsy's music on the radio and my CD player. I only wish I could sing her music--I'm not in her range.

Anyway, I just wanted to say "Hi" and check out some info on Patsy. Thanks for letting me be a part of this forum.

Hi Everyone! I was looking up information about Patsy Cline and found this forum. I live right across the street from 815 Nella Drive (Patsy's last home). We have tour buses that come by quite often, sometimes they ask for tours, mostly they just want to take pictures, though. It is occupied by "normal" folks, though, who usually don't open the home to groups. I think it's a really cool piece of musical history to see.

Hi Per, it's been a long time since I've written here. I wanted to comment on the Patsy rose. The person that inquired about the Rose most recently was in fact my roommate Jeff. He surprised me with the roses this week. They will make a great addition to my home landscape. I can attest that the nursery you mentioned is in Canada and they do ship to the US and the prices are very reasonable. My roses arrived in great shape and already have new growth on them. I have opted to plant them in containers for this first season because I'm not yet ready to put them into my landscape. I will plan on transplanting them next spring and will try to provide updates on their progress. But if you are looking for the roses, Vesey's has them. I hope everyone is well.

Hi, I guess I am a new fan to the music of Patsy Cline. A newbie they call it on the internet. Anyway, I was raised in Australia and my Dad played Patsy as I was growing up. Naturally, I rebelled against anything my parents put forth and my first music infatuation was for Punk. I still listen to a derivation of that music called improvised noise with a leaning towards free jazz. However, since my early thirtes I have rediscovered Patsy and find her voice a refreshing challenge to modern life. I am interested in knowing about her life, contributors, musicians. I don't have any specific questions right now, but would like to know more about her career, collaberators, musicians etcetera. I know I could find all this on the net but don't have the attention span nor inclination for delving through 'information'. I guess I just want to express my gratitude for her music, her voice and would like to involve myself in celebrating my rediscovery. Thanks

The following is a Message From Philip Martin, President of Celebrating Patsy Cline, Inc:

**********

I want to announce that an effort has been underway in the past 2 weeks to get a Virginia Historical Highway Marker approved and installed in front of 608 South Kent Street. We have an opportunity to expedite what can often be a lengthy process and have gotten tentative approval already. I submitted the package earlier today to the Dept of Historic Resources. The response was extremely positive and nothing should impede its approval according to the Director of the Historical Highway Marker Program. The committee will convene to vote in April and by June 1 we will have the final approval after which the order goes to the foundry. What can take 4-6 months at the foundry is also being expedited because of the Labor Day weekend festivities. I envision a well publicized media event with a formal unveiling ceremony and reception following for sponsors who contribute at least $100.

The Marker is to be installed the last week of August by VDOT. I have prepared a mailing announcement to be sent out in June to a wide audience soliciting other sponsors to include organizations, businesses, and individuals. A plaque depicting the names will be displayed in the house.

A challenge has been issued to raise funds for the Marker's installation. If you wish to contribute, send your donation to:

Hello... My middle-school-age daughter loves Patsy's songs and does well singing along with most of them. Her school is presenting an "American Idol" style talent competition and she has chosen "Walkin' After Midnight" as her song. The school won't allow music that includes a lead vocalist. She has recordings of both the 1956 version and the 1961 version but she prefers the early version. She has several karaoke CD+G disks with "Walkin'" but the songlists don't state which version it is so we have several with the later version and none with the early version. Can anyone tell me the title and publisher of a karaoke CD that has the 1956 version? It doesn't matter if has on-screen lyrics because she knows the words and the melody by heart. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Myself for one. I have done many tribute shows at faurs, etc. I recently moved out of Winchester, but still go there to sing. Down Rt 81 (I take 11 N) toward Martinsburg there are many karaoke places.
Also in Martinsburg. Just start in Winchester, go out rt 11 N and stop at all the places along the route. A lot of people got discouraged at Rainbow because of the DJ so it is not crowded anymore. Maybe for their dances on weekend nights, but not karaoke.

Comment: Oh no. "Always" was recorded by approx. 25 different artists, both vocal and instrumental, before Patsy recorded it in 1963. Irving Berlin wrote the song as early as 1925, and as far as I can gather, the first to record it was Josephine Baker in 1926. After that it was recorded by great names like Benny Goodman, Frank Sinatra, Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald and others. /Per
Hi Patsy Cline Fan Friends,
I'm back again to make a tribute to Patsy. I'm going out tonight to do karaoke. I'm a impersonator for her. I do alot of them but some of the older guys like "Blue Moon Of Kentucky". I love them all. I just wish I could sing exactly like her but there will "never" be a Patsy Cline. I do my best for her. I'm going to see if someone in Winchester will let me put my picture on the web so I can let you'll meet me. Does anyone know how I can do this? I always go to Winchester, Va for vacation & visit. I put a rose on her grave. I visit all around town, visiting her house, Gaunt's Drug Store, they are really nice, there. Rainbow Inn, I have a drink there 77. I haven't gotten to sing there at Rainbow Inn. They have karaoke a certain time. Well friends, I get back with you'll next month. Let's keep Patsy Cline going like stars, today. Love you'll,

Howdy Gang!

We have some exciting news from CPC. We had our latest board meeting last week, and are rarin' to go! Most of you know that the CMA Fest (formerly known as the Fan Fair) takes place each year in Nashville. Well, this year it will run from June 9-12, and CPC IS having a booth there for Patsy!

CPC is under new leadership, and Phil Martin is a shot in the arm for sure! He is a wealth of energy, knowledge, and has a real passion for Patsy. He is for real, gang, and he understands the urgency of getting this museum off the ground. So, here's the deal:

We are having a booth to sell Rt. 11 Chip Tins, and Patsy books to raise more money for the musuem and preservation of the items previously obtained through the estate auctions. We also plan to sign people up to become donors and friends of CPC. I have the honor of being the Project Manager for this, since I live here in Nashville. I need your help to man this booth. Here is a chance for us to do something for Patsy that won't cost much more than our time. I am putting together a schedule of folks for the booth, and any time that anyone can give will be greatly appreciated.

Please feel free to email me at gerdbaby@yahoo.com to sign up for time, or if you have any questions. This effort is for real, and we are putting CPC out there where folks can see it, and act to help. I know firsthand that there is frustration and fatigue out there with all of this, and in the past, it may have seemed like there was a lot of talk and no action. Well, y'all those days are over. We have some real momentum, and hope to hear from any of you who can lend a hand.

Come on in, we're gonna have a ball!!!

Hi everyone, I need to talk about something that is really bothering me. This past weekend I went to Nashville and while I was there I took a little drive to Camden and saw the plane crash site. I was very upset when I saw the amount of vandalism that has taken place. It's ok to write nice notes to Patsy, but there were alot of not so nice things written there too. Also people were writing on the glass covering of that stand, and preventing me from being able to read most of the articles that are on display. To make matters worse, as I walked up to the rock memorial there was writing on that too.

I'm glad that people write notes to her because I truly believe that Patsy knows how much she is in our hearts and how much we think about her everyday, but there is a place for everything. If you're going to leave Patsy a note, please do it in the appropriate place. Thank you all, and I hope that if anyone goes to the plane crash site and you see anything bad written, that you will cross it out just like I did when I saw the comment "f*** Patsy" written there. I didn't want to repeat that but I really want to get the point across about what kinds of things are being written, and this comment was not the only one of its kind. We all love Patsy and should do our part to protect her honor and legacy. Thank you all very much and always keep our Patsy in your thoughts and heart and prayers.

I have never seen nor heard of any Patsy Cline websights before. Grew up 40 miles from Winchester, my parents were from New England and never really heard any "country" music. But somehow my dad heard of Patsy Cline and even though very young, he took me to some of the Jimmy Dean Shows and I loved her voice.

Even now I have Patsy Cline tapes and CD's. Lord how that lady could sing. On a Summer night with the rain hitting the house roof, sitting with my window open (no ac back in most VA homes in the 50's and 60's) and listening in the dark to Patsy sing, I could feel every feeling as I thought about life.

Now I am much older, and still am haunted by some quality in her voice, that just gets in your gut. That is the only way to describe. Patsy and Roy Orbison are the only two singers that get to my soul that way.

Don't have many tapes and don't have many CD's, but her voice is my favorite. It is amazing after all these years to hear that lots of other people still enjoy and listen to Patsy Cline. Even though I still live within 7 miles of where I was born I did not know she was buried down the way in Winchester.

In any case, wanted to say, what I had to say. Patsy Cline, to this day, sings those songs like no one else!

Really like Patsy's songs, would have loved to hear a Christmas song by her, as Jim Reeves old xmas card. I see she did something about turning the cards... an "I dont wanta", I can change to "I dont santa"....az09... Listening to her music is like travelling back in time... Her "Crazy" and Jim's "I guess I'm crazy" I always sing to myself when we are mowing our lawns. Seems Patsy always wins out cause I side with her cause I dont have any of her Christmas songs, but I have Jim's clause.com and santas northpole sights have some of her unknown stuff... Well, just cant say enough stooges an rascals fun fun fun ...love you Patsy...

Does anyone know if WSM will be having a tribute to Patsy this week, since the anniversary of her death is nearing? I looked on the website and could not find information. Very possible that I might have not looked in the right places.

I got an e-mail from a record shop in Holland, asking that I'd link to them, because they have a lot of Patsy Cline records. I have checked them out, and they sure do! They have a lot, both vinyl and CD. And they also have a lot of Loretta Lynn records, and also some Mandy Barnett records, even two vinyl singles with Mandy when I did my search... Click here to go to their site.

I am a very big fan of Patsy Cline, and although have never experienced her live, I do have a few of her CDs. I wanted to enquire if you could let me know of any biographies which I would be able to purchase. Also, could you please inform me if there is any memorabilia which you sell, such as tea cups or t-shirts. Many thanks for all your help and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Valentines Day made me think a lot about the wonderful Patsy Cline! Some critics complain that her love songs were often on the negative side. But heck, I'd rather listen to a sorrowful song from Patsy than some silly ditty or overbearing love ballad commonly heard on the radio these days. Patsy's sad songs even lift me up. That strong, beautiful emotive voice of hers can't be topped! Country music should give her more honor than it does. She took that genre and lifted it to glorious heights. She is my alltime fave singer.

Today being Valentine's Day seems rather appropriate that I felt compelled to write about the beauty of Patsy Cline's music. I am a 39 year old man living just north of Toronto Ontario Canada. I became familiar with Patsy Cline's music some years ago but only very recently made a concious decision to seek out and listen to her collection of songs. I was amazed at how many of Patsy's songs I knew very well but never realized that they belonged to her. It is with this realization that I became focused on finding out more about this wonderful woman. A quest which invariably led me to this web site.

It is not very often that a human being with a voice like Patsy Cline graces our world. In the event that a family member of Patsy Cline reads this comment, I humbly wish to thank Patsy for what she has given us, her fans. Patsy managed to evoke powerful emotions with her beautiful, beautiful voice. Although Patsy Cline has at the time of this writing been dead for some forty years, I can personally attest that her songs still bring both smiles and tears to those who listen to her haunting ballads.

Ironically my mother, who died in 1990, loved Patsy Cline songs and sadly it took me this long to appreciate what my mother loved so much in these songs.
Again my thanks Patsy. God Bless.

I was born in 1956. I cannot remember the first time that I heard Miss Patsy but I have always love the sound of her voice. I could be driving down the road listening to the radio station and her tremendous voice will start singing and it sends shivers up and down my entire being. Miss Patsy possessed a gift from God. She is an angel on this earth. Anyone who is sad or angry or depressed or happy should pop in a tape of Miss Patsy. Her beautiful voice will bring great joy to life. This God given voice is the most soothing sound that ever was. GOD BLESS PATSY CLINE!!

March 5: 42th anniversary of Patsy Cline's Death.
Patsy Cline was the first female solo artist to be elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame. She was, and is, a huge star, even though she died at age 30 and her real stardom only launched three years before her death. Born Virginia Patterson Hensley (the "Cline" is from her first husband, Gerald) on September 8, 1932 in Winchester, Va., Patsy wanted to be an entertainer all her life. She first performed in public at age four, when she won a tap dance contest. Soon, though, she switched to singing, and would sing anywhere and everywhere she could.

She had to quit high school in order to clerk in a drug store to help support her family. In fact, when Roy Acuff offered her a job on his radio show, Patsy decided that she could make more money working in the drug store, so she went back to Winchester. Soon, though, she began appearing on shows like the Old Dominion Barn Dance, the Ozark Jubilee, and The Jimmy Dean Show. Reportedly, Ernest Tubb himself helped her get her first record deal, and there she met Owen Bradley, the producer who would guide her sound for the rest of her career. In fact, Owen says his only problem with Patsy was that she "had such a beautifully silky voice [that] it was hard to get country radio stations to play her records. We did try to rough those records up a little, so that maybe they'd be considered more country."

Patsy's records became classics. In fact, her Greatest Hits album is still a huge seller. But once you hear Patsy sing "Walkin' After Midnight", "I Fall To Pieces" or "Crazy", you cannot forget that voice. The Mar. 5, 1963, plane crash that silenced Patsy also took the lives of Cowboy Copas, Hawkshaw Hawkins and Cline's manager, accompanist Randy Hughes. The plaque on her grave says, "Death cannot kill what never dies". To hear Tom Tripp's tribute to Patsy Cline, please click here.

I have been a big fan of Patsy's for years. I was born and raised in Winchester, Patsy's hometown, and I just want to say I am proud to be from Patsy's hometown but I am not so proud of Winchester for the way they have and continue to treat Patsy. They have never truly treated her with the pride that she deserves. She should have a museum there by now among other things! I had the privilege of talking to Mrs Hilda Hensley, her mother, back just before the movie about Patsy was finished, in Martinsburg when I was a contestant in the Patsy Cline talent contest that a local radio station was putting out, and she was so nice to me on the phone, not minding me calling her and asking questions.

I would very much love the honor of speaking with Patsy's daughter Julie, but I can only dream. I have been to Patsy's grave at least 3 times, the last time I was there I put a single red rose there, it is a beautiful park and my nephew and uncle are buried there. I just wish they would take care of it a little better, going back to how Winchester still, in my opinion, doesn't treat her with respect, the respect she so richly deserves. If anyone would like to e-mail me, that is a fan of Patsy like myself, my e-mail is lmgoodman@earthlink.net. I now live near Bristol, Tennessee, but I get back to Winchester every now and then to visit my family.

I love her class and her style. The way Patsy put her heart into her music I just love to sit and listen to it all day.

I came across this site by chance while doing a search on Charlie Dick. I am a true Patsy Cline fan in ever sense of the word!!! I collect/cherish all memorabilia I can get my hands on relating to Patsy and was looking for b/w photos of her to finish a collage I am doing for the background of a display. I have been a big fan of her music since I was old enough to throw an 8 track in the deck player ;) But it wasn't until I bought my first computer that I was able to discover the wealth of information available. It was on my first search for a biography on her that I discovered how much of a fan I truly was, even in my unconscience... I had always felt a kinship with her and to say the least was shocked to find out that my 2 daughters birthdates were the same as her birthday and the date of her death.. My 1st daughter was born Sept. 8 and my 2nd daughter was born March 5!!! A true fan even when I didn't know it lol
Anyhow, I am very excited about finding this site and look forward to having an opportunity to discuss Patsy's life with people who love and hold her as dear as I do.
Now back to reading more of these posts.

I know alot of you hate the music i create,"hip hop"...
Maybe even the color of my skin! But I was relaxing after a studio session boozed up, if ya know what I mean, and this movie "Sweet Dreams" came on... I watched it in it's entirety... I became intrigued with her life because it wasn't so different from mine. At the time I didn't realize that I have heard her pretty voice a million time's... Never knew her name... As a young black man who is admitting that he is not a fan of country music, I'm writing to all her fans... She is an undeniable talent, and I wish she lived longer to grace us with more of her music. She will be added to my book of great one's that have left us way before her time...

Hey, I just want to say that Patsy is my hero! I think she is the best singer there ever was, and if not for her, there would be no other female country singers. I have a question, if you know if her mother is still alive, give me a way I could get hold of her, because my great grandfather said that I mite be related to her. This may sound farfetched, but I just want to get things strait... And thanks, Patsy, for being such a great lady!!!

Hi Patsy Cline Fans,
This is February. In my heart every month, I'm making a tribute to Patsy. I'm an inpersonator for her, I'm going to keep singing her songs to keep her music alive. I go to Winchester, Va. ever year to visit her hometown and to buy her things. I visit her grave and put a yellow rose on It. I even spray It with my cologne. I love her. I wish I could have met her. Regardless Fans, what we do, write about her, buy things "she will never die in my heart". But, if we give, that will keep her going. I request songs on radio of hers. I do it on B-99. I went to Grant's Drug Store and talked to the man there in Winchester, Va. I went to Patsy's home on Kent St. My friend took a picture of me standing on the front porch. I felt Patsy's present in my heart. I bought a book at Grant's Drug Store. He will talk to you'll about Patsy. The girl there, took a picture of us. We went to a little place there to eat breakfast, can't think of name and they had these little jukeboxes on tables and we put money in them for Patsy and I started singing. People applaused for me. I said, "I love her". Talk to you all next month.
Loving Patsy Forever,
Inpersonator/Jacqueline

Hello to all Patsy Cline Fans. I am not sure if any of you have visited Brown County, Indiana before but you need to. There is a theatre there called the Nashville Follies and I am in one of the shows under Brown County Entertainment. The reason I am writing this is because we are putting on a country show that will pay a tribute to the greatest women of country music... and of course... Patsy Cline is one of them. Our first show is April 1st 2005. For more information, go to Whitney <wthetfor@hotmail.com>

Do anyone have any information as to where I may find rare television performances by Patsy in it's entireity? I know that the two documentaries show clips of rare performances, but I am interested in seeing the full performance. One other question I have regarding "The Real Patsy Cline" video documentary, I've noticed that back in late 1989, when it appeared on tv, it was different than the actual video. The performances of "Crazy", "She's Got You", and "So Wrong" were taken out and "Lovesick Blues", "Walking After Midnight", "How Can I Face Tomorrow", and "Come On In" were shown. Anyone with any information regarding the video or knowing where I can get a compilation of her performances is greatly appreciated. I am a true Patsy Cline fan and this information would be great. God Bless

Hello Patsy Fans,
As far as the "Sweet Dreams" movie goes, I'm glad it was made and I think it did alot to spark a renewed interest in Patsy and I encourage everyone to see it, but I wish it would have been more accurate. Mom Hensley said it was a joke! The car wreck Patsy was involved in was a head on, not from the side as portrayed in the movie. Also she and her brother did not go to the liquor store to buy alcohol, but to a fabric shop to buy supplies for Mom Hensley to make Patsy some clothes. These are just to name a few. Also, Charlie said he never hit Patsy. The movie portrays a fighting scene near the end where it shows Charlie beating Patsy. Charlie said they had arguments and disagreements like all couples but never anything like that. So watch it with an open mind and remember that it's not the gospel on Patsy's life but gives us a "rough" idea of the life and times. One thing you don't hear often is that Patsy grew up in the Baptist church singing specials with her mother. She had a love of gospel music. Mom Hensley said one of Patsy's goals in her music career was to make a Gospel album and also a Christmas album, can you imagine what those albums would have been like? Patsy singing "Peace in the Valley" or "White Christmas". That would have been awesome. Patsy Forever,

Hello Per & all,
The "Only You" link in one of the messages is most definately NOT Patsy! It is most definately Reba McEntire. It is amazing the things you can find on the net that claim to be Patsy, songs, pictures and other items. You have to be very careful if you're collecting. Glad to see that the forum has picked up again. God bless.

I do it in karaoke as my hobby. People tell me I'm good and favor her. I try to do the whole nine yards, red lipstick, outfits, I try to look like her. I love her movie "Sweet dreams". I got her CDs, karaoke CDs. She is alive in my heart. I take my vacations to Winchester, Va. I buy her things there. Loving Patsy forever.

Comment: Patsy did not record that song. There are a few MP3s on the net, erroneously stating that it is Patsy singing, when it is not. Another example is "Amazing Grace", which Patsy did not record, either. I once got an MP3 with "Amazing Grace" in an e-mail, stating that it was Patsy, but when I listened to it, I immediately heard that it was LeAnn Rimes... /Per
This site looks like a great place for nice people to talk about someone who obviously touched all of our lives. I have loved Patsy Cline's singing all my life. Last summer my daughter had the opportunity to play the role of Patsy in "Always Patsy Cline" in Findlay, Ohio. She is 23 and a classically trained lyric soprano, but was thrilled to sing all those great songs. I think everyone who heard her felt that she brought Patsy's songs to life. What amazes me, is that 40 years after her death, just the mention of the name "Patsy Cline" can bring such devotion and admiration. Julie, what a wonderful legacy...... are any of your children or grandchildren showing signs of having the gift of song?
God Bless,

Hello to all... feels like it has been forever since I was here. I do try to read all the entries regularly, though... I hope everyone had a great Christmas and is having a wonderful New Year. As most of you know, we now have two grandkids, and that makes for an even more wonderful Christmas! Cole is 3 and his new baby sister, Claire is now 5 months. (Of course she, like her brother, is the greatest!)
I wanted to respond to the entry from John Freeman... I talked to Dad (Charlie) and he said they were at Bristol Motor Speedway. He thought maybe it was the first year the track was open, but according to the information at the Bristol Motor Speedway web site, we think it must have been the second year. They were there for a concert the night before the race. And yes, Faron Young was there also. I am not sure of the exact dates, but the first race at Bristol (a year before) was on July 30, 1961. I am not sure if this will help. You might want to check out the history on the Bristol Motor Speedway further.
Well, hope this finds everyone well, and if there is anyone checking in here from the US Military out there on duty somewhere in the world, I just would like to say Hello and God be with you and a big hug and THANK YOU from us here in our little part of Tennessee! I am sure there are a lot of "service" personnel out there from all areas of service (Fire, Police, Medical, Etc...) and a big Hug and THANK YOU to you also! I'll try to stop by again soon.

I think it was Aug. or Sep. of 1962. Faron Young was there also. She was a very sweet young lady, I like all of you was very sadden at the untimely death.

I love Patsy Cline with all my heart and soul; there was a song that she sang called "Why can't he be you". I have been looking to buy this on a karaoke, I love to sing her songs and I am also looking to see her show "Just a closer walk with thee", I saw it once in Toronto and it had a great impact on my life; I only wish my daugther could see it as well; if anyone knows if it will be coming to Canada's east coast, please let me know, I will be forever greatful. My kids were small when I saw it, they grew up with the music of Patsy in my home everyday. Now I would love to share that magic nite with them, please help me to find out if and where the show "Just a closer walk with thee" is in the east coast Canada playing. Please let me know by e-mail.

Hey! My name is Brittnee and I am 14 yrs old. I have been singing/listening to Patsy Cline since I was born! My papa loved her and died when I was 2. Since then I have been working on my singing "career!" The audience's favorite is my way of doing "Blue Moon of Kentucky". Check out my website! www.brittneelee.com

I really like Patsy Cline's music, it is great. I also bought the DVD "Sweet Dreams". I've always been a Patsy Cline fan.
