The stats always go down on Saturdays here and sometimes that’s good news for me, because I can put something up that I like and won’t get a bunch of complaints about it.
I love Patsy Cline. No singer alive today can touch her voice.
I grew up on a small farm in East Enterprise, Indiana – about an hour and a half away from Cincinnati. I remember my mother playing her records and how she would sing along to Patsy – and I remember how much my mother cried when her favorite singer was killed in a plane crash in 1963.
I’ve found this old clip of Patsy singing the Hank Williams classic “Lovesick Blues.” For those out there looking at us today, I hope you enjoy it. If you don’t, sue me.
(Update: YouTube took down the origianl clip put up this morning. I wonder why they hate me over there? Here’s another one of the same song – but not as good – and you’ll need to click on the YouTube photo to get to their site to watch it. Rita, please don’t sue me. My heart was in the right place)
