Patsy Cline’s Story Will Be Featured in a New PBS Special
The beloved Patsy Cline, country music pioneer and inspiration to many, is the latest subject of the PBS documentary series American Masters.
The Patsy Cline American Masters episode will feature never-before-seen footage of Cline’s short lived career. The episode will also include contributions and discussions from fellow country stars including Reba McEntire, LeAnn Rimes, Kacey Musgraves and Wanda Jackson.
Executive producer Michael Kantor said in a press release...“The film goes beyond the jukebox classics to show how Patsy Cline was a gutsy pioneer”.
Patsy Cline’s career has to this day, been one of intrigue. She began performing in the 1950s with her first hit coming in 1957 with “Walkin’ After Midnight.” Other huge hits for Patsy Cline include “I Fall to Pieces,” “She’s Got You,” and “Crazy” which was written by Willie Nelson.
The Patsy Cline Museum is currently under construction in downtown Nashville and will showcase Cline’s life and memorabilia. It is expected to open sometime later this year.
The Patsy Cline episode of American Masters airs March 4th on PBS.
