On this day in 1963, in a tragic plane crash, America lost one of its finest singers: Patsy Cline. While many are familiar with her acclaimed rendition of the Willie Nelson-penned Crazy
, let's pay a visit to some lesser-known but nonetheless masterfully impressive vocal performances from that sublime, transcendent voice, shall we? Here's two live TV spots: Patsy in full cowgirl regalia with a delightful performance of the Hank Williams classic Lovesick Blues
and the snazzy Walking After Midnight
, one of the tunes that reminds us that Patsy could've just as easily been marketed as a pop/jazzy chanteuse as the *country* artist she was presented to the world as. And here's the gorgeously smooth studio renditions of She's Got You
and I Fall To Pieces
There's quite a lot of Patsy on YouTube (although some favorite old live TV spots of mine seem to have been pulled, unfortunately), so I'll just link here to 99-song playlist
. Happy listening! And thanks for the great music, Patsy. So sorry you couldn't have been with us longer.
