Patsy Cline was one of the fastest rising stars in country music when her life was tragically cut short on March 5, 1963. The iconic country singer died in a plane crash while flying back to Nashville from a show in Kansas City, Kansas.
Cline scored her first hit, “Walkin’ After Midnight,” in 1957 after two years of releasing records that did not chart. She endured several more years of records that stiffed before she scored her second hit in 1961 with “I Fall to Pieces,” which gave Cline her first No. 1 single in 1961.
