Patsy Cline is known as an American female vocalist who took the country by storm with huge and tremendous hits. His first television series was in 1955 on the Grand Ole Opry.
Guest ‘Little Jimmy Dickens’ walks up to guitarist Ernest Tubb and asks who he’s sitting next to. Ernest says: She’s a recording artist from Coraline, and her name is Patsy Clayne. Ernest brags about Patsy and asks her to definitely present her voice to the public.
She sat down on the grass bench next to Ernest and began singing “A Church, A Courtroom and Then Goodbye” as the band played with his accompaniment. Patsy says number 1. “The first scene was the church, then the altar where we proposed to each other, we cried tears of joy and excitement. Our friends always wished us good luck as we walked side by side from the church.
Then he got up, looked at the camera and started singing about the courtroom. Patsy said. “The next scene was a crowded hall, and like strangers, we sat next to each other. Then I heard how the judge made a decision, and we are no longer husband and wife.”
He walked over to Jimmy and put his arm under his arm as he sat down in the rocking chair. He simply told her with a sad look. Ernest, Jimmy, and the crowd gave Pats a standing ovation when he finished, and he smiled in acknowledgment.
Patsy Cline’s first recording in 1955 was this very song she performed at the Grand Ole Opry. His future included such huge hits as “I’m Falling Into the Electors” and “Madness”. Unfortunately, Patsy’s career was cut short when she died in a plane crash in 1963.
Patsy left her mark in American music history with her incredible country voice and quite emotional delivery. She is considered an icon for female vocalists, and her Greatest Hits album has sold more than 10 million copies decades after her death. Patsy Cline remains an amazing inspiration for singers almost everywhere.
