Patsy Cline left an indelible mark on Country Music and although she was tragically killed long before I came along, I was an instant fan when I heard her for the first time!
On this day March 3rd 1963 Cline performed for the last time, ironically, at a benefit for the family of disc jockey Cactus Jack Call, who'd recently died in a car accident. Two day later she was heading home on that ill fated flight that crashed....She was only 30 years old and had a accomplished more in her short career that some can only dream of, leaving us a legacy in her music that will live on forever. I still have a hard time believing she was only 30 years old at the time of her death!!! As tragic as her death was, it was the events that happened in the ensuing weeks (and years) that were truly notable...and, well WEIRD!
