Patsy Cline September 8, — March 5,born Virginia Patterson Hensley in Gore, Virginia, was an American country music singer who enjoyed pop music crossover success during the era of the Nashville sound in the early s. Since her death in at age 30 in a private airplane crash at the height of her career, she has been considered one of the most influential, successful, and acclaimed female vocalists of the 20th century. Cline was best known for her rich tone and emotionally expressive bold contralto voice, which, along with her role as a mover and shaker in the country music industry, has been cited as an inspiration by many vocalists of various music genres.
She never arrived. The aircraft crashed into a wood shortly after take-off, leaving a crater so huge it scars the Tennessee landscape to this day. Patsy, along with three other country stars, was killed on impact.

Cline, who died when she was 30 in a plane crash is shown as a woman who left her first husband the morning after she met and made love to Dick. In the film, Dick is smitten by Cline the first time he sees her singing at a dance. Sometime later he meets and talks with her after she has finished singing in a honky-tonk roadhouse.
