Celebrating Patsy Cline
Patsy Cline was born Virginia Patterson Hensley on September 8, 1932. Virginia, known to her family and friends as Ginny, began singing on nights and weekends at the age of 16, as she tried to help support her family. Patsy quickly rose to stardom as she won amateur contests, sang on local radio stations and performed with a number of bands. On March 5, 1963, her life was tragically cut short in a multiple fatality plane crash outside of Camden, Tennessee. Patsy is remembered as a musical icon with her popular hits, “Crazy” and “I Fall to Pieces”. Established in 1995, Celebrating Patsy Cline, Inc. (CPC), is a nonprofit corporation committed to its mission: “To Preserve and Perpetuate The Legacy of Patsy Cline and Her Music”.
