Country Music Hall To Offer Patsy Cline Exhibit
May 7, 2012 at 8:50 AM (PT)
The COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME AND MUSEUM in NASHVILLE will honor the late PATSY CLINE with the cameo exhibition “PATSY CLINE: CRAZY FOR LOVING YOU,” from AUGUST 24th, 2012, running through JUNE, 2013.
“PATSY CLINE is an AMERICAN music icon and perhaps the most accessible artist in Country music history,” said Museum Director KYLE YOUNG. “Though she recorded for only eight years and made her last record nearly 50 years ago, her body of work—those classic torch songs and ballads of heartache—have continued to resonate with music fans of all genres. While she considered herself a Country singer, she was equally adept at pop stylings, and was a key influence in bringing the two genres closer stylistically in the 1960s. The quintessential torch singer, she could wring every nuance of emotion from a lyric; and her prodigious vocal stylings and unique delivery have influenced scores of artists, including LORETTA LYNN, LINDA RONSTADE, and REBA McENTIRE.”
