Hawkshaw Hawkins, Cowboy Copas, Patsy Cline


"Hawkshaw" Hawkins had a strong stage presence.
He was tall, handsome, and had rich, smooth vocals.
His tasteful western suits set him apart from the usual
rhinestone gaudiness seen on other male Country singers.

Jean Shepard was married to Hawkshaw Hawkins who was
killed along with Patsy Cline and Cowboy Copas in the plane
crash. She was pregnant with Hawkshaw's son at the time.

Kathy Hughes lost not only her father, Cowboy Copas, but,
her husband, Randy Hughes who was ALSO the pilot of the
plane and who made the decision to fly onto Nashville, after
refueling in Dyersburg, even though the weather was bad.

Charlie Dick, Patsy’s widower, was left with two small children
who now had no mother.

Legends aside… this crash was a tragedy of enormous,
personal proportions.
