Patsy Cline (1932–1963) is one of the most important artists in the history of country music and is arguably Virginia's most significant contribution to twentieth-century American popular culture. Her songs "Crazy," "Sweet Dreams," and "Walkin' After Midnight" remain among the most beloved ever recorded. More than forty years after her death, the life and music of this Winchester native continue to fascinate and entertain. And her role as a female pioneer in a male-dominated industry remains a powerful source of inspiration.
