A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline
From Crazy to Walkin' After Midnight, A Closer Walk With Patsy Cline celebrates one of the most influential voices of our time. Featuring over 20 of Patsy's best-loved songs, this toe tappin' foot stompin' tribute traces her career from the early days of singing in honky tonks, through her rise to fame at the Grand Ole Opry, to her triumph at Carnegie Hall. Patsy was one of the first country stars to effortlessly-if not intentionally-cross over to the pop charts. And like her music, this production has an appeal that reaches more than country music fans. Thirty years old when she died in a plane crash in 1963, Patsy remains a vivid character, whose popularity continues to soar. You'll love takin' this closer walk with the down-home girl who became a country music legend.
