As recorded by Patsy Cline, 11/16/1960
Patsy Cline rocketed to fame after she performed her breakthrough hit "Walkin' After Midnight" (1957) on the Arthur Godfrey's Talent Scouts. She became a mainstay on the country music showcase Grand Ole Opry in 1960. Though she began her career recording rockabilly, it became clear that Cline's voice was best suited for pop/country crossover tunes, especially love songs. Some signature songs are "Crazy" (written by Willie Nelson but forever linked to Cline), "She's Got You", "I Fall To Pieces", and Don Gibson's "Sweet Dreams".

Patsy Cline (September 8, 1932 – March 5, 1963) born Virginia Patterson Hensley in Winchester, Virginia, she received her first contract as a country singer in 1953 and, despite her short life, would become one of the most influential singers in the history of American popular music. Cline was the last name of her first husband, Gerald Cline, a construction industry mogul, whom she married in 1953 and divorced in 1957. That same year, Cline married Charles Allen Dick, who worked as a linotype operator for the Winchester Star. They had a daughter, Julia Simadore Dick (b. 1958; now known as Julie Fudge), and a son, Allen Randolph "Randy" Dick (b. 1961).
