Patsy Cline

Black day came on March 5, 1963. She returned from benefit show, which was at the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall, Kansas City, Kansas. Her last song in this show was I’ll Sail My Ship Alone. It’s irony of destiny, that Dottie West invited her to returned back with her and her husband Bill by car. But Patsy wanted to be asap with her children and that why she used airplane. It was in forest near town Camden in Tennessee, the airplane crashed at 6:20 p.m., only 90 miles from the Nashville.

Patsy Cline died in her 30 old. There were also Hawkshaw Hawkins and Cowboy Copas. There were no survivors. Loretta Lynn, her very good friend came to know this horrible message in the morning from radio. It was great loss for all Country World.

Patsy Cline was buried in her hometown of Winchester, Virginia, at Shenandoah Memorial Park. In the forest near Camden there was erected the bell tower to the memories of Patsy with help of Loretta Lynn and Dottie West. The bell plays hymns daily at 6:00 pm, the hour when her death. Many item, which were found in the place of airplane crash, were donated to The Country Music Hall of Fame.
