#TheClassics: Patsy Cline ‘Walkin’ After Midnight’
Everyone needs a certain appreciation for the classics – those songs that inspired the Texas and Nashville tunes we hear today. There was a certain honesty in songwriting back in the day that deserves to be recognized and remembered.
Continuing our celebration of Women's History Month, this week's classic goes out to the memory of Patsy Cline, who would have been celebrating her 82nd birthday this week. Cline was the first female country music star to headline her own show and receive billing above the male artists with whom she toured, such as Johnny Cash.
Before passing at the young age of 30, she had become one of the most successful solo female country artists, winning many awards and accolades. Her first hit, Walkin' After Midnight made it to #2 on the Country charts and is one of her most popular songs to date.
