In 1960, Patsy Cline realized a lifelong dream when she asked to join the cast of the Grand Ole Opry and her wish was granted, becoming the only person granted membership in such a fashion, and one of the Opry's biggest stars in the process.
Even before that time, believing that there was "room enough for everybody", and confident of her abilities and appeal, Cline befriended and encouraged a number of women just starting out in the country music field at that time, including Loretta Lynn, Dottie West, Jan Howard, sixteen-year-old Brenda Lee and a thirteen year old steel-guitar player named Barbara Mandrell with whom Cline once toured, all of whom cite her as a major influence today.
