Patsy Cline To Be Honoured With Hall Of Fame Exhibit25 May 2012
The I Fall to Pieces hitmaker was killed in a horrific plane crash, which left three others dead, in March, 1963, and now her life and legacy will live on at the landmark's East Gallery with a display called Patsy Cline: Crazy for Loving You.
The collection will open on 24 August (12) and run through 2013.
Museum director Kyle Young says, "Patsy Cline is an American music icon and perhaps the most accessible artist in country music history. 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.
"Though her life was tragically cut short her classic recordings are timeless, alive and vibrant. Our exhibit will not only explore Patsy's musical contributions, but will also offer visitors a look at the woman behind the songs, the firecracker who overcame childhood hardships to emerge as one of the most important artists of the 20th century."
Cline was posthumously inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame a decade after her death (73).
