I Fall To Pieces
Written by Hank Cochran and Harlan Howard
Recorded by Patsy Cline November 16 1960
Early in 1961, Patsy Cline and her brother were involved in a head-on car crash in Nashville that sent Patsy through the windshield. While recuperating in the hospital, Patsy tuned in to a live radio broadcast one night and heard a new singer named Loretta Lynn singing her hit, "I Fall to Pieces." Loretta had dedicated the song to Patsy Cline and wished her well. Touched, Patsy sent her husband to the broadcast to fetch this young singer and bring her back for an introduction. It would be the beginning of a lifelong friendship.
