Explore this museum honoring one of the best American singers, the late Patsy Cline.

The Patsy Cline Museum is dedicated to Virginia Paterson Hensley. She and a few others died in a plane crash. There were two other stars from the Grand Ole Opry on the plane; Cowboy Copas,  Hawkshaw Hawkings, and the aircraft pilot, Randy Hughes. She went by her stage name Patsy and kept the last name Cline from her first marriage. Patsy taught herself how to play the piano when she was eight and later found a passion for singing. She could never read music and did not know what key she sang in, but she was very talented.

Her mother was a seamstress, so they would sew her stage costumes from Pasty's designs and drawings or embellish store-bought outfits with fringe and rhinestones to make them more cost-efficient. Even when Pasty had more money, she continued to design her own clothing. In fact, Pasty had several drawings of dresses she planned to make that the museum owners put on display 50 years after Patsy drew them. There is a wall of records and stage costumes to look at, plus dining room furniture and her old refrigerator dating back to 1957. Patsy had two children with her second husband, Charlie Dick. Her daughter Julie Fudge was four when Patsy passed. Julie was worried that the "Norge" refrigerator might not start again if it was ever unplugged, so her only condition about moving it was to have it continually plugged in. They were able to do this, and it is still going strong. 

The museum is located on the second floor of the Johnny Cash Museum in Nashville. Please note that admission rates are separate for these attractions. The Patsy Cline Museum is open daily from 9 am to 7 pm, except on major national holidays. If you're into music and are visiting Nashville, add this museum to your itinerary.
