Show Summary

Created and originally directed by Ted Swindley. Based on a true story.
Licensed by the family and estate of Patsy Cline. All rights reserved.

A music legend and pioneer in country music, Patsy Cline’s unique stylings remain as relevant and popular today as they were over five decades ago. The original cross-over sensation, topping the country and pop charts, Cline paved the way for artists such as LeAnn Rimes, Shania Twain, and Carrie Underwood. Always… Patsy Cline is based on a touching true story affectionately told through letters written between Patsy and her biggest fan turned confidant, Louise Segar. A genuine bond of friendship, which began over a cup of coffee, lasted until Cline’s untimely death in 1963. Told through down-home country humor, heartache and celebration, Always…Patsy Cline takes audiences through the ups and downs, from her breakthrough on live radio, to her rise to fame at the Grand Ole Opry. Featuring 27 unforgettable hits, including “Crazy,” “Walkin’ After Midnight,” “I Fall to Pieces,” and “Sweet Dreams,” this musical memory book is a glorious tribute to the one-of-a-kind sound of Patsy Cline!
