The Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum will honor Patsy Cline with the cameo exhibition Patsy Cline: Crazy for Loving You, which opens in the Museum’s East Gallery on August 24, 2012, and runs 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….Our exhibit 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.”
Patsy Cline: Crazy for Loving You will be accompanied by an ongoing series of programs throughout the exhibit’s duration.
