Patsy Cline

Patsy Cline (1932-63), American country music singer, who died in an airplane crash in 1963 at the height of her fame. She was born Virginia Hensley in Winchester, Virginia. Cline began performing at the age of 11, primarily as a singer, but she also played the piano and tap-danced. Her first recording was in 1956 and, with her slick, sentimental sound, she was an immediate success; the demand for her appearances and records continued until the early 1960s. The movie Sweet Dreams (1985) with Jessica Lange memorialized her life and career. Among her more popular songs were “She's Got You,” “Crazy,” “Cry Not for Me,” “Walkin' After Midnight,” “Sweet Dreams of You,” and “I Fall to Pieces.”
