45 Years ago today- the world lost the Greatest female singer ever-
The one, the only…Ms. Patsy Cline
…”Anything but Country”- that’s the usual answer I get when my friends and I are trying to decide on a radio station. Normally, we can’t decide….so everyone is always instructed to bring a couple of CD’s for the road trip and we’ll sit through them as we drive (everyone is allowed one “veto”). When it’s my turn…I usually yell out- “Ok, one Country song and then”…. (that’s usually as far as I get before hearing VETO! screams from everyone).
“But…It’s Patsy Cline”. Then of course the standard phrase is next… “Oh, she’s not Country… I like her”. Wait, wait…so because someone that usually hates country, likes Patsy…. that makes Patsy “not Country”? It’s always the same excuse…but they love Patsy.
