  1. I read somewhere that if Patsy Cline was trying to get into the music business today, with her type of singing voice, she wouldn’t make it. While there are some fantastic singers out there today, I’m glad I grew up with her voice and still love to hear it, she is a classic. Thanks again, Chuck!
