Patsy Cline

Patsy Cline, (September 8, 1932 – March 5, 1963) was an American country music singer.

Patsy Cline

Born Virginia Patterson Hensley in Winchester, Virginia, United States, she received her first contract as a country singer in 1953 and, despite her short life, would become one of the most influential singers in history. Cline was the last name of her first husband, Gerald Cline, a construction industry mogul, from whom she married in 1953 and divorced in 1957.

Her breakthrough hit was "Walkin' After Midnight" (1957), written by Don Hecht and Alan Block. She became a mainstay on the country music showcase "Grand Ole Opry" in 1960. Though she began her career recording rockabilly, it became clear that Cline's voice was best suited for pop/country crossover tunes. Some signature songs are "Crazy" (written by Willie Nelson but forever linked to Cline), "She's Got You," "I Fall To Pieces", and "Sweet Dreams."

On June 14, 1961, Patsy Cline and her brother were involved in a head-on car collision. The impact of the accident threw Patsy through the windshield, nearly killing her. Suffering from a jagged cut across her forehead that required stitches, a broken wrist, and a dislocated hip, she spent a month in the hospital. When she left the hospital, her forehead was still visibly scarred.

Cline died in a plane crash at Camden, Tennessee while returning from Kansas City, Missouri at the age of 30, in 1963. On the airplane with her and also killed were three other country music figures who were fairly well-known at the time, Hawkshaw Hawkins, Randy Hughes, and Cowboy Copas. Hughes, then Cline's lover and manager, was the plane's pilot. Country singer Jack Anglin died in an automobile accident while driving to her funeral.

In 1957, Cline married Charles Allen Dick, who worked as a linotype operator for the Winchester Star. They had a daughter, Julia Simadore Dick (1958-; now known as Julie Fudge), and a son, Allen Randolph "Randy" Dick (1961-). Were she alive today, she would have had four grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. In addition to her affair with Randy Hughes, Cline also had an affair with Bill Peer, her first manager. (*The reports of Miss Cline's affairs are personal assumptions from various persons interviewed many years after her death. Most of these interviews were for use in the makings of books and such about Miss Cline. Since most of the parties mention to have been involved in these affairs were deceased, these affairs could not be proven.*) After Cline's death, Charlie Dick married and divorced Jamey Ryan, also a singer, and had a son, Charles Allen Dick, Jr.

Cline is interred in the Shenendoah Memorial Park cemetery, in her hometown of Winchester, Virginia.

Among her many honors, she has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6160 Hollywood Blvd, she was elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1973, in 1993 she was honored with her image on a United States postage stamp and in 1995, she was awarded posthumously a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.

The 1985 movie Sweet Dreams starring Jessica Lange, is based on her adult life and is said by some familiar with her to be fairly accurate in many respects, although some have disputed its portrayal of her mercurial relationship with second husband Charlie Dick (portrayed in the film by Ed Harris). However, its depiction of the plane crash as occurring in high desert mountains totally unlike any terrain found in West Tennessee is wildly inaccurate.

"I Fall to Pieces" was voted #107 on the RIAA list of the Songs of the Century.

Nicholas Dawidoff, Vintage Books, 1998, ISBN 0-375-70082-x. Currently, Dissection has plans to release a new album. "I Fall to Pieces" was voted #107 on the RIAA list of the Songs of the Century. Since then, Nödtveidt has formed a new line-up for Dissection and recorded one 2-track EP entitled Mahi Kali. However, its depiction of the plane crash as occurring in high desert mountains totally unlike any terrain found in West Tennessee is wildly inaccurate. He was released in autumn of 2004. The 1985 movie Sweet Dreams starring Jessica Lange, is based on her adult life and is said by some familiar with her to be fairly accurate in many respects, although some have disputed its portrayal of her mercurial relationship with second husband Charlie Dick (portrayed in the film by Ed Harris). In 1997, Jon Nödtveidt was convicted for helping to murder a 38-year old man in Göteborg.

Among her many honors, she has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6160 Hollywood Blvd, she was elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1973, in 1993 she was honored with her image on a United States postage stamp and in 1995, she was awarded posthumously a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. It was compiled from previous rare and import releases, and contained only cover songs and demo tracks. Cline is interred in the Shenendoah Memorial Park cemetery, in her hometown of Winchester, Virginia. The following year, Dissection also released a short EP entitled Where Dead Angels Lie. Since most of the parties mention to have been involved in these affairs were deceased, these affairs could not be proven.*) After Cline's death, Charlie Dick married and divorced Jamey Ryan, also a singer, and had a son, Charles Allen Dick, Jr. In 1995, the band's second full-length album, called Storm Of The Light's Bane, was released. Most of these interviews were for use in the makings of books and such about Miss Cline. During November of 1994, Dissection signed a record deal with the well-known German label Nuclear Blast.

(*The reports of Miss Cline's affairs are personal assumptions from various persons interviewed many years after her death. It was formally dedicated to Euronymous, the then-guitarist of Mayhem, who had been murdered earlier that year. In addition to her affair with Randy Hughes, Cline also had an affair with Bill Peer, her first manager. The album was finished and released the following December. Were she alive today, she would have had four grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. In 1992, Dissection began work on their first full-length album, The Somberlain. Because of coordination problems between members, the entire band moved to Göteborg, Sweden (where they shared a rehearsal space with At The Gates) in the summer of 1993. They had a daughter, Julia Simadore Dick (1958-; now known as Julie Fudge), and a son, Allen Randolph "Randy" Dick (1961-). The band continued to tour.

In 1957, Cline married Charles Allen Dick, who worked as a linotype operator for the Winchester Star. Later that year, Dissection accepted the deal and recorded Into Infinite Obscurity. Country singer Jack Anglin died in an automobile accident while driving to her funeral. The Grief Prophecy was soon spread through the underground, and the French record label Corpsegrinder Records offered Dissection a deal to record an EP. Hughes, then Cline's lover and manager, was the plane's pilot. Dissection also played a live show in his honor, at which they performed the Mayhem song "Freezing Moon". On the airplane with her and also killed were three other country music figures who were fairly well-known at the time, Hawkshaw Hawkins, Randy Hughes, and Cowboy Copas. The special release featured album art drawn by Dead himself.

Cline died in a plane crash at Camden, Tennessee while returning from Kansas City, Missouri at the age of 30, in 1963. A special edition of The Grief Prophecy was later released in memory of Dead, the former vocalist for the notorious Norwegian black metal group Mayhem, who committed suicide in 1991. When she left the hospital, her forehead was still visibly scarred. It contained three songs and featured illustrations by the artist known as Necrolord, who has since created nearly all of Dissection's album art. Suffering from a jagged cut across her forehead that required stitches, a broken wrist, and a dislocated hip, she spent a month in the hospital. In the same year, they also recorded and released their first demo, The Grief Prophecy. The impact of the accident threw Patsy through the windshield, nearly killing her. In 1990, Dissection played their first live show with death metal act Entombed.

Some signature songs are "Crazy" (written by Willie Nelson but forever linked to Cline), "She's Got You," "I Fall To Pieces", and "Sweet Dreams.". Dissection was officially formed in the autumn of 1989 by Nödveidt, who had since left Rabbit's Carrot. Though she began her career recording rockabilly, it became clear that Cline's voice was best suited for pop/country crossover tunes. Nödveidt was leaning more and more towards death metal and other forms of dark extreme music. She became a mainstay on the country music showcase "Grand Ole Opry" in 1960. Nödveidt and Öhman continued on to play in the band Rabbit's Carrot, in which they claim to have never felt quite at home (especially Nödveidt).

Her breakthrough hit was "Walkin' After Midnight" (1957), written by Don Hecht and Alan Block. The group recorded a single demo before breaking up in 1989. Cline was the last name of her first husband, Gerald Cline, a construction industry mogul, from whom she married in 1953 and divorced in 1957. Its members were Jon Nödveidt, Ole Öhman, Peter Palmdahl, and Mattias Johansson.
