Patsy Cline set the standard for the modern female country singer. She along with Brenda Lee and Skeeter Davis created the country-pop crossover sound in the early 60's. But probably because of her early death, Cline has garnered a more legendary status than the others.

Cline had great appeal to all music lovers. Hits like "Walkin' After Midnight", "I Fall To Pieces" and "Crazy" all were huge hits on both the country and pop charts.

On this day in 1963, Patsy Cline would have her last recording session. She cut the song "He Called Be Baby". Charlie Rich would have a future hit with that song. Her final song in the studio, "I'll My Ship Alone".

In March of 1963, Patsy Cline would die in a plane crash.
