Patsy Cline: Crazy for Loving You Hall of Fame Exhibit to Open August 24th in Nashville
The legendary country artist Patsy Cline will be the subject of an exhibit “Patsy Cline: Crazy for Loving You” at the Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum in Nashville opening this August 24th and closing June 10, 2013.
The singer had a short music career, only spanning 8 years before she was killed in a plane crash March 5, 1963. However, in that short time Cline made an indelible stamp on the country music world.
The Museum’s Country Music Foundation Press will also be publishing an 80 page book, under the same title, that will accompany the exhibit.
Some items included in the exhibit are handwritten notes, jewelry, costumes and other personal items.
A film will also be shown during the exhibit featuring well known names such as Country Music Hall of Fame Member Harold Bradley, Ray Walker of the Jordanaires, Brenda Lee and Willie Nelson. They will all share their memories of the legendary singer.
A panel discussion during the exhibit will be held on August 25th that will feature Cline’s husband, Charlie Dick and her daughter, Julie Fudge. Again Harold Bradley will be a part of the discussion as will George Hamilton IV & Jan Howard. A concert will be held on the 25th featuring Bradley, Jessi Alexander, Mandy Barnett, Striking Matches and singer Emily West; then on the 26th the museum will screen the documentary “Patsy Cline: Sweet Dreams Still.”
Cline was best known for her songs “Crazy”, “She’s Got You”, “Sweet Dreams”, “Walkin’ After Midnight” and “I Fall to Pieces”. For more information on this exhibit see the Country Music Hall of Fame website.
