Patsy Cline - Icon

She was the first woman inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. But Cline, who died at 30 in a plane crash, was as much a revered pop star and huge influence on singers like Linda Ronstadt. She was also later the subject of a major Hollywood movie, 1985’s Sweet Dreams, starring Jessica Lange. This CD captures Cline’s honeyed soprano on hits like “I Fall to Pieces,” “Walkin’ After Midnight” and “She’s Got You.” Also included is her signature song, “Crazy,” written by a then little-known writer named Willie Nelson.
