First recorded by country star Don Gibson in 1956, this song was met with some success on the country charts, but not until Patsy Cline recorded it early in 1963 with Owen Bradley producing did the song crossover onto the pop charts to any great extent. Unfortunately the songstress would be in a fatal plane crash in March of that year.
This song truly resinates with us. Miss Cline was taken from us too soon, but her spirit lives on through her great recordings. The Nashville star’s life would get the movie treatment come 1985’s Sweet Dreams starring Jessica Lange and Woody Harrison.
We love you Patsy.
