Born Virginia Patterson Hensley, Patsy Cline began her career performing in local clubs as a teenager. Yearning to make it big, she tried to break on to the Nashville scene in 1948. Unsuccessful in her attempt, she would wait nearly a decade before her dream came true. In 1957 her performance of “Walking After Midnight” not only won her first place in Arthur Godfrey’s Talent Scout Contest, but also made record executives sit up and take notice of her.
 
Her recording of the song, made later that year for Decca Records, climbed to the top of the country charts and earned her a place on the pop charts - a feat far less common than it is today, especially for a female vocalist. Other top-selling releases soon followed including “Crazy”, “I Fall to Pieces”, and “She’s Got You.” In the late 50’s she moved to Nashville to join the Grand Ole Opry. Her unforgettable voice and pop-oriented recordings greatly increased the popularity of country music, which had taken a backseat to rock ‘n’ roll.
 
Her brilliant career ended in 1963, when her plane crashed near Camden, Tennessee. Even after her death however, her single releases continued to sell well into the 1960’s, and her performances still inspire female country artists even today.
