Birthplace: Winchester, Virginia
Suffered from rheumatic fever at age 13, and discovered after her recovery that she had developed a tremendous singing voice. Dropped out of school at 15 to help support her family, working as a soda jerk and at a Greyhound bus station. Signed her first record contract with Four Star Records in 1954 but continued to struggle, singing in juke joints and bars. Got her big break when she won a televised talent contest hosted by Arthur Godfrey in 1957. Was initially hesitant to record the song "I Fall to Pieces," which incorporated a new, more heavily orchestrated Nashville sound. Was involved in a serious car accident in 1961 that left her with a visible scar on her forehead, which she would cover with wigs during public appearances. Was killed when the plane she was taking home from a concert in Kansas City, piloted by her manager Randy Hughes, crashed during inclement weather conditions in a forest outside of Camden, Tennessee. Her longtime family home in Winchester, Virginia, remains open to the public, cared for by a non-profit group called Celebrating Patsy Cline, and has become a destination for tourists and fans.
