Patsy Cline
September 8, 1932 – March 5, 1963

Oh how she sparkles
And oh how she shines
This little lady
That's named Patsy Cline...

Patsy Cline is a story of triumph and tragedy, and of a little woman who couldn’t be kept down – the very stuff of country music songs and legends. Patsy Cline, who held jobs plucking chickens, worked in a meat packing plant and waitressed in a bus terminal, rose to be named the most promising country and western female artist of 1957 by Billboard Magazine.

She was born in Gore, Virginia, on September 8, 1932 as Virginia Patterson Hensley, and her first childhood heroine was Shirley Temple, whom she idolized and who inspired her to win a tap dancing contest at the age of four. By eight she’d learned to play piano by ear, and such was her evident talent that a teacher said formal training would not be wise because it might stifle her.
