Widely considered one of the greatest and most influential singers of all time Patsy Cline, in her brief but extraordinary career, made a colossal impact on country and pop music. Born Virginia Patterson Hensley in Winchester, Va., Cline was a trailblazer who defined modern country music, and broke down barriers of gender, class and genre. In her music and her life, she set a standard of authenticity towards which artists still strive. After years of hard work to overcome industry biases and her own personal hardships, she achieved enormous success, only to have it punctured by uncanny premonitions and her untimely death at age 30 in 1963. On Sept. 8, on what would have been her 85th birthday, UMe announced that Cline’s remarkable life and enduring legacy will be honored in When Patsy Cline Was… Crazy, a new DVD, available Oct. 6, that collects the acclaimed PBS documentary, Patsy Cline: American Masters, and a wealth of exclusive bonus material comprised of themed additional interview footage and rare vintage performances.
