Patsy Cline’s career took off when “Walkin’ After Midnight” was released in 1957. By 1961, she was hitting the top of the country charts and had established her place in music history with hits like “I Fall to Pieces” and Willie Nelson’s “Crazy.” That same year she miraculously survived a traumatic head-on car accident. Two years later, on March 5, 1963, Cline was killed along with her manager Randy Hughes and fellow country singers, Cowboy Copas and Hawkshaw Hawkins when Hughes’ plane went down in a Tennessee forest during a storm. Although she was only 30 when she died, she left a lasting musical legacy that still captivates fans today.
